Demo differences: FIFA 13 vs PES 2013
Fans of football games in general will have the option of the two top soccer games again this year with more improvements to make the decision of which one is best even harder this time around. Now that the demos have come out for both FIFA 13 and PES 2013 we are interested in some opinions on both to get an overall perspective of which is going to be more prominent this season.
After playing both PES 2013 and the latest FIFA 13 demos, it is hard to make a concrete decision and maybe another FIFA demo with a few national sides would help me define my opinion on both. To be totally honest both franchises are great for football fans and over the years I have swayed from each regarding PES 2011 as better than FIFA 11, but last years FIFA 12 managed to bring me back to EA. In an article on Pluggedin, they are also concerned with which one is best, and they mention the feedback that gave Konami cause to release two demos.
Looking at both demos the FIFA 13 one only includes five playable teams whereas Pro Evolution’s second demo contained 11 fully licensed teams. Both games have noticeable new improvements, with PES 2013 the Pro-Active AI is ideal for moving on and off the ball making it more realistic. Although FIFA 13’s First Touch Control and the Player Impact Engine are just a few of the new enhancements to the game, so their conclusion from the demo experience was more in favor of FIFA 13 being a bigger hit.
Highlighting the modes in the actual FIFA 13 game, The Bleacher Report writes about some of the new additions, as well as a return of a few older ones. In this version, gamers will get the opportunity to play a match from that day’s schedule, which contains commentary that coincides with what is happening in the club’s league. The popular Ultimate Team mode is back and this is said to have the same addictive feel along with the Seasons mode. The Career aspect allows gamers to be a player or a manager on two separate saves or combine the two blending the Manager and Be a Pro mode.
In addition, there will be Pro Club Seasons and Skill Games that can also be played while you wait for your match to start. Only yesterday, we looked at a collection of FIFA 13 demo reviews and we are pleased to see that this version has ticked all the boxes adding a more realistic football feel to the game. We understand some opinions can be subjective to change once the actual games are released but it seems that FIFA 13 looks set to be another big hit, even though we personally feel that both franchises have some seriously good features both bringing a unique and more realistic experience to world of football games. Which demo do you feel is the best? Do you think FIFA 13 is going to come out on top when the full games are released?
