PES 2013 – The Reviews Are In! **Updated**


Well, they will be today.

WENB has decided to wait a week until posting our review, due to day one patches that we want to sample before coming up with a score. But don’t worry, we are loving the game so far, so it’s a definite day one purchase. In the meantime, the press review embargo ends today, and we’ll be updating this post throughout the day.

**Update** Eurogamer / 10

” Wake up, everyone! With PES 2013, Konami has finally pulled off the excellent game it’s been threatening to release for the last couple of years.”

CVG 9.1 / 10

“In my opinion, it was only a matter of time until PES once again hit its stride on the football field. Which team will win players hearts this year, remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, it is going to be a close game, in fact it may even go to penalties.”

TheGameJar 7/ 10

“PES 13 is an incredibly solid football game – I wouldn’t say it’s a complete return to form but I would say it is a step in the right direction for Konami.”

TheSixthAxis 9 / 10

“PES 2013 has made huge strides forward in how it plays over last year’s game. It’s no longer a case of living with the slight, niggling issues with the gameplay, animations and fluidity of it all so that you have the astonishing depth of the Master League mode.”

Videogamer 8 / 10

“It’s the finest Pro Evolution Soccer we’ve seen since Ronaldinho legitimately was the best player in the world. Will it oust FIFA 13? Let me ask you this: who is better, Ronaldo or Messi?”

“If you’re hungry for the glory, the beauty and the magic of PES, though, you know what to do. It’s so good to have you back.”
