PES 2019 Demo

I have played FIFA for about 18 years now and is (or used to be) my favourite game franchises of all time.
I sporadicaly played PES in the past but always played FIFA waaaay more than PES.
I played the PES 2019 demo today and I must say, I am everything but dissapointed. It looks like PES does everything that FIFA had failed to do over the last few years. Football in the PES demo seems a lot more realistic than FIFA has been for years. There is no ping pong passing, players respond as they should, defending is way more manual and attacking takes some serious skill. EA better step up their game for FIFA 19 or I am afraid not only me, but lots of other gamers might switch to PES this year. If you don’t believe me: DOWNLOAD THE DEMO and experience it for yourself.

    I played the demo and it is good I must say, it is really hard to create plays and get to pass the defense. I know there are patches to get all the teams but even like that it doesn't feel authentic. I loved the gameplay and graphics, that's it, FIFA needs to improve that

    People are always positive about PES this time of year. Give it a bit of time and that "grass is greener" feeling will soon subside - especially if you get the full game and can see it's lack of features and bad online play by yourself.

    Oh and this part...

    PES 19 looks and plays great. My only gripe with Konami is lack of a broadcast camera angle like FIFA's. Considering that you can patch all unlicensed content via Option File on PS4, I would seriously consider only getting PES 19 this year if it still kept UCL and Europa League Licenses. But I am definitely will play it as much as FIFA 19.

    The PES 2019 demo will be better on the pitch than FIFA 19 when it is fully released. EA don't care about on the pitch stuff and a lot of FIFA customers don't seem to care either.

    The gameplay is brilliant, but the online infrastructure is years behind Fifa. It's just not worth buying a football game in 2018 that's unplayable online. What PES productions should be spending their allocated funds on are dedicated servers, not legends, team licenses for a game that doesn't even work online.

    I wouldnt say the gameplay is brilliant...it feels the exact same as the PES 2018 open beta..lets not talk about the online infrastructure...its far behind and the AI are even more dumb in 2019 than 2018...They just make the fifa AI look like kids

    Also with AI being this bad in terms of reactions, God forbid how the AI will react in a laggy match

    And to the post creator, games other than fifa should have OT in the title

    The game plays and looks great. Much better than FIFA for me, but
    PES still lacks an engaging game mode like FUT to keep.people interested.

    If you were just comparing kick off modes, FIFA is a.long way behind at the moment.

    Game feels way to slow for me.

    Up close graphics are great, the graphics while actually playing don't appeal to me. Feels to arcady.

    I finished top 100 in online seasons (as I do most years) on Xbox One so there is hardly any rage on my end. I am just fed up with having to use the same faulty gameplay mechanics that FIFA forces you to use. I didn’t get this feelings while playing the PES demo.
