|For starters, Konami has signed more licenses than ever, with the continuation of Uefa's top competitions: the Europa League and the Champions League, and the new Euro 2016 competition. Individual club licenses are piling up too and include the usual offering of a Premier League team (Manchester United), three Bundesliga teams, and full French, Italian and Spanish leagues.fifa 16 coins online
But PES is also dipping into its past. For years, fans traded memory cards with people who had an edited file to install all the proper names, kits and clubs, and it's good that Sony is supporting this kind of sharing on the PS4 with a now-freed USB drive. This means the edit mode has some great possibilities.
The Master League is improved as well to give that manager RPG element a bit of a facelift and more depth with scouting, transfers and even managerial moves. There's also the myClub game mode, which is similar to FIFA's FUT mode but more about building a constant deck and levelling your players.
The biggest difference between the two is, of course, in how they play. The Fox engine (which powered Konami's Metal Gear Solid 5) has done wonders for Pro Evo's animations and it helps the flow of play. Team mate AI does all the wonderful running into space that it should do, reacts to you doing the same, and you don't get trapped in a loop of tussling with other players. In fact the whole thing feels a little bit weightier, in a very good way.
Compared with Fifa's mostly hold-sprint-and-dribble style, PES gives you the moment to poise, slow the play, read what the players are doing and actually gain more control over the proceedings. That's not to say you can't just pick Ronaldo and step-over your way to vainglorious triumph, but there's something a bit more rewarding about using everything at your disposal.
PES is very much a team game and the way players dynamically feel in the game reflects that. The players have their strength, size and style very well translated and it helps to give each squad a more intimate feel to you, the player. Simply, this is the best football gameplay since PES 5, which if you're an aficionado you'll know is high praise indeed.
So, as always, the big money will go to Fifa. Its core audience is dedicated and it will perform well. But if you're looking at a new challenge or if you're a bit sick of how much EA has focused on the FUT mode, Pro Evo might help you fall in love with football games again. And unless you're a fan, do you really care if Perugia from Serie B is authentic? No. Go and play some good football.
