Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 (also known as PES 2013) is an attractive sports game by Konami. Compared to its previous, PES 2013 has many drastic changes and takes PES Series to a new level. This game was introduced to players on April 18, 2012, and was officially available to the market on September 20, 2012. Besides, it was also widely released to many regions (Australia, Japan, UK, South Korea, North America) and different platforms (PS 2, PS 3, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii …). Also at this game, many leagues and different teams appeared to explore. Familiar leagues are the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. In particular, Campeonato Brasileiro Série A’s 20 teams have been added to bring interesting competitions between many clubs together.
In Pro Evolution Soccer 2013, players will enjoy many realistic matches and perform many interesting soccer techniques. The game’s highlight is the character movement system and ball control techniques. They have been carefully invested by Konami. From there, players will be comfortable dribbling, cutting, or stealing the ball from the opponent. The implementation of many different ball controls also helps players develop many attractive competition strategies (something that the old versions could not do). In a match, players will start by selecting the tactical squad to play (4-4-2, 4-5-1 …).
Next, gamers can customize the player’s position and prepare a list to play. A match has two main innings, and players can replace players in the match with a certain number. To win, you have to score more points than your opponent. Another highlight is that the match’s tempo is normal. Therefore, it helps players get the custom squad and competition strategy more comfortable. However, you can also speed up with quick attacks or counterattacks, depending on the player’s ability to control the character and reflexes.
This game has a great picture quality. The frame rate reaches a stable level, bringing many beautiful and realistic movements for players. Basic visual details such as the stadium, weather system, colors, and uniforms of each club are clearly displayed.
