Hi guys, over the past few months I have found from requests on my OF blog and from reading the forums that many people are still playing PES 2013 as they dislike PES 2014. Personally when a new version comes out I trade in last years game and pick up the new one and although sometimes certain things might annoy me in the new game I usually find that the positives out weigh the negatives.
There was one very good thread started by Klashman on the forums comparing the positives and negatives of both games (if you havent seen it its here http://www.pesgaming.com/showthread.php?t=95176). I don’t agree with all the points in that thread, but it is a good comparison non the less.
This year for me the stand out reason why I play 2014 over 2013 is that matches are more unpredictable and varied. In 2013 (and previous games) I found that most teams would play in exactly the same way (especially in attack), this is not something I have found as much in 2014. For an example of the kind of match I’ve only seen in PES 2014 I only need to look back to the last match I played last night, Hetha vs Pacos de Ferreira in a Europa League group match. The game ended as a fairly evenly matched 0-0, where although there were flashes of brilliance from both sides 80% of the match was played in the 15 yards either side of the half way line. This was mainly due to passes being played to heavily marked players who were dispossesed by the opposition almost immediately.
Anyway let me know in the comments what makes you play 2013 over 2014 or even what the main reason is for playing 2014.
Thanks for reading, Paul
