NoobFeed recaps the biggest football franchises in time for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Both EA's FIFA 14 and Konami's PES 2014 have their fans, but which one is ultimately the best? Their track record will decide on the complete picture.
PES gets my vote.
PES had my vote 4 or 5 years ago now Fifa its better. The only thing Fifa its missing its the champions.
Mine too. I find PES more fun and a better simulation of the sport than FIFA. Also FIFA has never had enough national teams. That being said, I do play PES on PC where I don't have to worry about the framerate, and I can just patch all the correct player names and shirts in.
I find myself always coming back to PES after the shine of FIFA wears off. I find the fluidity of PES and openness of gameplay is what I enjoy most about it. My dream game would be a mix of the 2.
WOW!!! I came in here expecting to be the ONLY person willing to defend PES. I think that, while FIFA is ahead now, PES has a really strong foundation after the engine changes. I think that the Fox engine and the M.A.S.S. engine were probably built with the next gen in mind, yet scalable to older consoles. PES is just more organic in its nature. It doesn't feel canned or repetitive when you set up plays. Ping Ponging will only go so far and when you score it just feel right. FIFA has come a long way in that regard as well. But, it still feels a bit off in terms of feeling like the real thing. Its always very fun, has much better online features, has more teams than anybody would know what to do with. But, I don't mind grabbing a file or two from the mod community to get the leagues that I want.
pes can get worse games sometimes,but fifa is now and before a bad football game,the people what like fifa are fans of football in europa what love to play with the real teams and players and do not bother have play a bad game and casual gamers what do not know about football.
I was one of wining eleven fan from ps1 till 2009 it just was bullshit once I tried fifa 2009 and 2010. Fifa is better in everything except graphics. I tried and over and over again to love pes again but reall man this game is sick just fast player is need to score.
I've absolutely loved FIFA since the France 98 game and have bought every one since, my mate had PES games a few yeas ago and I couldn't enjoy them. The fact FIFA has the licencing does definitely help but I do genuinely find it more enjoyable to play.
FIFA holds the license so it is effectively "better". Even if both games were the same from a gameplay perspective, no fan is going to tolerate using Dwayne Cooney, Liono Messy or Simon Gregard in PES
It's funny how Fifa is getting like COD on here & it seems cool to hate. The next gen version is great & its by far a best football game ever made.
I'm gonna get alot of hate for this but I don't care, the best I played in years is PES for the wii. That's right the wii the control innovation is second to none all it needs is an hd update. Wish they would release one on the wii u.
PES on PSP was also surprisingly great for its format. Same can be said for the FIFA releases on 3DS. Not too sure that Konami is supporting the Wii U soon though, as they had some off comments on it in the past.
PES 2014 on PS3 is better than FIFA 14 NG for me. PES has more immersive and realistic gameplay. Fifa is amazing from an aesthetic point of view but that's not what is important to me.
I downloaded PES 2014 from +, it lasted a grand total of 30 mins on my PS3 before I deleted it, WTF? Last PES I played was 2006(with Thierry Henry or was it Pierluigi Collina on the front) amazing games. Saying that, Fifa doesn't come out of this smelling of roses.
It takes a LOT more than 30 minutes to come to grips with everything that is new with PES. I usually alternate between the two, depending on how I feel around the launches. This new engine really changes how the game plays. Every step, every touch matters. You can't just push the stick or a button. You have to pay attention to where your feet are, in relation to the character, then make your move. Its a new type of control...not for everybody...but new. I think it took me about 5-6 games to get comfortable with it. All in all, I like them both and pretty much adjust to which ever one I buy.
I make the most of both. When i play pes 14 on xbox360 i enjoyed it. I played the demo on ps3 but i found the 360 a little smoother. However, since being on ps4, i have not seemed to have made time to go back on 360. I would like to make time to try pes 14 again and sure i will enjoy it. However, i had noticed that since being used to fifa 14 on ps4 and trying fifa 14 on 360 i was shocked how weird it was playing on 360. The view was more overhead and i didnt enjoy as much as the ps4 fifa.
The view on the next gen version was one of the biggest changes to show off the crowd etc. Thats why it looks so different to the 360/ps3 version.
fifa. still not perfect but they took a big step forward with the next gen version imo
Man, I love fifa but the scripting is so damn bad.
Heard that the last PES wasn't very good. Not a fan of soccer so it doesn't bother me.
