Annoying stuff about PES 2013...

Post by JackBurton-Me » Sun Dec 02, 2012 6:25 pm

I just need to vent this, sorry.

1. Why is it still not licenced?
2. Why are option files such a faff?
3. Why do I often get "unable to connect"? Whenever I try to play I never know if it's going to allow me to play on line. I'd say the success rate is abot 50%.
4. What happened to the demo screen chat? It was brilliant stickying up a pithy comment when you scored.
5. Why still no proper classic teams?

It's such a great game to actually but I just wish they'd add a bit of polish and get the online mode right. They have all year to work on this stuff!

I noticed the Netherland national team are not fully licenced in this new release. It makes it difficult to know which players are which as they're all spelt and modelled incorrectly. In the previous versions (think it was Pro Evolution Soccer 2), all the players were named as 'Orange' plus digits.

At least the Dutch ones aren't that tricky to work out, when you get to many of the Asian ones that's a different matter entirely!

Could it be that EA have some exclusivity deals with certain licenses that make it impossible for Konami to include them in PES?

Exactly. This version does have Europa League and Copa Libertadores licenses with correct teams, names and stadiums. National teams have a lot of likenesses even if the names are wrong.

For me the biggest bugbear is how little difference the sprint button has to your player's speed on the ball...

Player ratings are stuck in the past for quite a few players too - Maicon 94, Ronaldinho 89 but Suarez only 82? :shock:

Played this at Eurogamer and again at Play and actually really enjoyed it.. it is annoying not haveing all the correct players and teams, but this has always been the case so I don't mind that too much..

Connection problems to the online mode is alot harder to swallow.. it should work, no excuses!

Will get it after Xmas when it's alot cheaper...

Surprised that they dont just make them DLC updates instead of releasing actual retail versions. Surely no one really cares if you can count indiviual hairs on players? How 'right' can the ball physics need to be compared to each previous year? Its all guff churned out en masse with few real changes anyway.

Thought of another thing having just been putting a couple more hours into Master League - headers from corners. Honestly, I get more shots on target by playing it to someone outside the box and trying to volley it in and this is a tactic that only achieves tangible results about 10% of the time! :?

Once again, it's not working. half past 11 on a Monday night and "Unable to connect".

I've always been a PES fan and the actual game this year is really good. I'm starting to get hacked off though by all these constant niggles.

And another thing, the dreadful menu music they force down our throats year after year. Just....why? If I want to listen to music I'll get my iphone and plug in the headphones. The music they choose is so bad and having to hear it over and over and over again every time I turn the game on is really grating.

The next patch "will address player form" apparently. Hopefully that means the shonky player ratings I previously mentioned.

Turn the music off?

I've been really disappointed with the game - so many annoyances both with the gameplay (through pass is broken) and with the general features (why did they remove the player name bars from the bottom of the screen?!).

I bought the game because I was so impressed with Demo 2, but the final version plays like a different game, it's bizarre. Some people have said that the final version is more like Demo 1, which seems odd but then it sure as hell ain't anything like Demo 2!

It's probably still the best football game of the current generation, but that ain't saying much.

Because EA have almost all the major licenses tied up in long term exclusive deals. Konami just do not have the finacial clout to compete with them on this.
