PES European Brand Manager Adam Bhatti has stated that FIFA 15 can't compete with PES 2015. He argues gamers to must download upcoming PES 2015 demo and added that "Seriously, all football games right now don't come close"
ok, i think i will wait for the demo to see how it is. i tried PES at gamescom and it wasn't impressed. FIFA isn't super either the level goes down since 2010
They're trying at least, that's what counts. Fifa 15 demo is immense, can't wait for the PES2015 demo if it's going to be better! Not going to hold my breath.
I don't understand how "other football games dont come close". The only other one right now is Fifa, and it must be close...how different can a football game be? I cant think of anything revolutionary they could actually add, apart from groundbreaking visuals and maybe more fluid controls.
Since neither have fluid and responsive controls anymore, you pretty much already gave part of the answer. .
With how amazing NBA 2K is, 2k Sports should get Soccer license and make soccar feel more fluid and strategic. THAT would crush both PES and Fifa.
^ gives me hope! Maybe that way I'd have some football game to play this gen. The way it is now is disgusting. The best part of my last two years playing Fifa was when I booted other games after that and thought "wow, these are responsive controls". Every game feels much better if you play them after struggling with Fifs truck driving controls.
Loving the fifa demo so far!
I've always been more of a PES fan than a Fifa fan. I'll download the demo and see what I think, as they just haven't been that good for years.
same, but then pes stayed the same and fifa kind of took over. i do want pes to take the lead once again though. i never really enjoyed fifa controls.
Already buying Fifa 15, Day One. PES 15 would have to be something really special for it to sway me. "EA Sports, It's in the Bank"
Maybe I'm being pessimistic but I'm not enjoying fifa demo one bit, yes there are clear upgrades but not enough to make me buy it I'm exhausted with fifa and PES seems to be doing something for me this year iv been following it way more than fifa and looking forward to the demo. To tell the truth I'm sick of the same type of goals ( yes that sounds stupid iknow) so I think I will be moving this year just to try different tack tics and gameplay. Finally the devs reactions to fifa are in lim with my own so here's hoping the pull it off
Can't wait for the PES demo.They're upping their game and trying atleast whereas FIFA 15 is 90% the same as FIFA14
You don't tinker too much with a good game. Fifa has got it almost spot on for years so I don't expect much change. However of course PES has had a major overhaul, it's been pants for years so it needed one.
Think FIFA splits opinions, people don't like it who want an arcade style game where the ball sticks to the player's feet, and you can score easily from the same position every time. On the other hand proper football fans appreciate the realism and love the way it's improved.
I disagree , there was a lot to tinker around and fix . It's obvious that EA was resting on its laurels with at least Fifa 14 ps4/xb1 and World cup , on the back of their control of the market ... Hardy anything to do with already having some "perfect formula"
Exactly. If they were to stop evolving, it should have been while they were at the peak, 2010 or 2012. They kind of destroyed the game after that. Now Fifa is like playing soccer with monster trucks on slippery ice. Unbelievable how worse the control response became.
Words are cheap, FIFA is the leading football game on consoles, improve and better the experience it gives or keep your mouth shut, your being paid to produce a game not talk sh*t like a whiny little child
my last played football game was pes 6. afterthat i stoped playing football games and moved to shooters. hope pes will deliver :(
Even if it were true, and i'm feeling it will be , given how unimpressive that Fifa demo was , could Bhatti just please shut up about the subject and do his job in a more interesting fashion ? The guy kept announcing trailers and infos he never delivered for the most par t, went dead silent for months , only came back to antagonize fans and rub them the wrong way , and now instead of using the momentum of a mostly positive press since gamescom about PES15 , keeps mouthing off about Fifa , as it it's going to sway anyone . Talk about your own game , as you should have been since june , and stop giving a douchey image of your hard at works devs
Seriously, will someone gag this guy already. He's supposed to be the "brand" manager yet he's dragging the brand through the mud. He isn't making me excited to play the new PES at all because he's clearly more concerned with fifa 15 than his own game.
Tried the demo it feels different to fifa 13 and 14. It plays lot more like football than those games. The real test for Fifa is online not playing offline. You notice the problems when you play against another player. Last year the issues were long balls being too accurate, bad defending, and easy goals scored from headers.
I think it's funny to see a lot of the issues people have with Fifa are caused by the people themselves, yet it's always Fifa's fault for allowing it. Take for example the constant over the top through ball which is a given during the majority of online matches, this has nothing to do with the game but the person pressing the buttons. Sure it was a bit overpowered but it seems to have been toned down from what i see in the demo. Also with scoring from the same position like headers or back when we had easy finesse or chip goals , it's the players choice to go for the easy option rather than playing realistically because they know there's a lesser chance they'll score. There does need to be a balance though and from the demo there seems to be more of a balance with more reward from build up play but my point remains that many issues will continue not because of the game mechanics but the gamer playing it. I'm really enjoying the demo and will have Fifa 15 on day one but i'm hoping to see PES bring something special to the table so people can choose between two fantastic football games.
It's funny how everyone goes on about the lofted through ball as if it's a Fifa thing. I used to score many, many goals like that on Pro Evo years ago. Before online we used to have games nights & everyone would agree not to do it in our gaming nights. But of course as it's online nowadays against strangers, people will always find the easiest way to score..
It seems to be the same story every year. People shout that "FIFA is the same game as last years, PES is at least doing something new this year" But then PES fails to impress... I somewhat understand people who may feel like FIFA isn't doing enough but saying that PES is any better is rubbish.
Played the FIFA 15. Here's my thoughts This game makes millions and the graphics looks like something from a ps3 game. Come on man, there's not much going on in the screen! The jaggies! Horrible! During celebrations they move like robots, like if an amateur designed this. Gameplay is better than 14 it's more responsive. Not buying it this year.
Are you playing a different demo to me? I don't get the jaggies on mine, smooth as anything, think you need to upgrade your TV mate.
The PES developer have been talking a little too much.
PR guy , he aint developed shit .
I love the FIFA demo. I am not a big fan of arcade shooters. I like the realism that FIFA brings and the demo is insane for me because I am a PC gamer and got a crap version of 14. So this ignite engine fifa 15 is an amazing upgrade for me and I am having tons of fun. Since the pc is getting everything that consoles are getting and PES on PC isn't, it's a no brainer for me. To be honest, I played the PES demo last year and I didn't like it. I know that the PES fan boys will hate me for it but PES is not my preference.
This time around Fifa ain't gettin my money easily that's why I'll try the PES demo and if its better to me best believe EA wouldn't see a dime from me.
Well I'm in a win/win situation. PES used to be my favorite, but over the last few years it's been crap, so if it's good this year it'll be nice to interchange games with Fifa 15. After the terrible Fifa 15 beta, I'm really pleased they listened & ironed out the problems & I for one am loving the demo.
I didnt dislike the demo , it had nice touch and changes , but even without believing they'd pour out more work for a sec , i feel they ought to do a bit better than "fixed fifa 14 PS4/XB1" for all platforms . I'm in a win win position too , i no longer "hate" the game enough to avoid it , so if PES is a dud , i'll just get Fifa on the cheap . If PES is great , i'll get it too . Either way both demos are out soon enough to decide
