Luke Plunkett, Kotaku:
So while it’s tempting to spend pages here banging on about the specific ways in which PES 2018’s mastery of the actual sport of football (as it’s played) is unmatched, or just what it is about FIFA that makes it irresistible every year in spite of its glaring flaws, I’m just going to cut to the chase.
PES 2018 is the better game this year because it plays a better game of football. Sorry if that sounds predictable, since that’s been the case for the last few years, but it’s the case again in 2017.
I prefer PES to FIFA, but Mr. Plunkett nails the core problems with Konami’s title: clunky menus, lack of licenses, and commentary you want to turn off entirely.
