The Official Demo was released and as it was promised, it brings a lot of new features and licensed competitions and teams! They’ve done it again! PES2013 has the full UEFA Champions League License for the game and it looks awesome! They managed to extend their license from the PES 2012 with UEFA in PES 2013 too.
The demo doesn’t impress much by graphic or features, and the options are quite limited. The only improved changes in graphics can be seen, for now, only in the replay mode and in slow-motion. As they mentioned while starting the game: the demo is taken from a product that is still under development and it doesn’t represent the quality and appearance of the final release. You can play with 4 national teams in “Match” mode (Germany, Portugal, England and Italy), and other 4 in Copa Santander Libertadores (Santos FC, Fluminese FC, SC Internacional, CR Flamengo.)
About gameplay, yes, it’s different. It’s changed. It feels like you are trying Ice skating for the first time after you walked all your life in normal shoes. I didn’t really got to control the players as I used to do in the previous versions, but I know that perfection is achieved with practice. The ball runs very naturally, and respects the physics quite in a very high detail. Anyway, the game gets really annoying sometimes, because the referee gives the fouls with so much ease and it’s stopping the game quite often!
So, Konami doesn’t let the PES fans down this year at all. The official release of the game is expected to be in the middle of September 2012, and it will bring into the sports scene the greatest soccer simulator, making you feel like you belong on the field! I can’t wait to play a full UEFA Champions League Season with my favorite team! Good luck scoring goals!
