Push-Start Game Preview: Pro Evolution Soccer 13

Joe Marshall for Push-Start writes: When I purchased my first football game back in 1999 I revelled in playing as Gianfranco Zola and Gianluca Vialli, coaxed by John Motson and the tagline All the Clubs, Leagues and Cups.I fell in love with the FIFA franchise, a game that would be surpassed in quality, but never in sales thanks to its aggressive pursuit of the rights of teams and my own determination to play as Chelsea, and not North London Blue. Times don’t change all that much and as Pro Evolution Soccer and the FIFA franchise grew in parallel, it was made obvious to me throughout much of my youth that regardless of the fact Konami developed the superior game, I would trade this for Van Nistelrooy’s, Henry’s, Robben’s and Rooney’s as the years went on, time after time. The current generation of consoles has been unkind to Pro Evo, and FIFA managed to claw their way back into a market that had undermined their integrity for years, now though, PES has struck back once again and produced a truly mind-blowing title. (PC, Pro Evolution Soccer 2013, PS3, Xbox 360)
