After quitting Fifa for two months, I want to play football games again and PES is having a half price discount in PS Store, so I decided to give it a try.
And I am very impressed, after 2 days. I think I will get a copy for 2019 and start MyClub instead of FUT.
1. Better engine - you can feel it easily. One touch pass is effective only for first one to two passes and after that the player will misplace the pass (which is quite realistic imo). The tikitaka style in Fifa won't work. Another point worth mentioning is the crossing and heading system. It feels so smooth and realistic.
Of course there are some bad points as well, like the shooting system and some players movement looks awkward. But in general I do feel much more fun when playing the game, even if I lost.
2. Completely different market (some people won't like this) - no more trading. Everyone has to earn their coins from matches. Players are acquired either by loot box draw or scouts, where scouts can be obtained by matches or public auctions (all issuers are Konami). No more trading, no more investment, no more if you don't invest you would lose to your counterparts.
I personally don't like this because to me trading is fun, but I know there are lots of people who don't like trading and investing as well.
3. No TOTW, instead, players are able to "grow" by match exp. For example, Mbappe initial rating is 82, but you can train him up to 92. In a way it's just like the old master league system. Mind you do need a lots of time to max out a player though.
4. Needless to say, much better chemistry system. No more change formation ❤️❤️❤️❤️. Players are able to change to their pre set tactics and formations easily in game anyway.
There are lots of good ideas in PES that Fifa can easily copy and paste to be honest. If you don't believe you can try yourself. I do feel glad that I paid just a tiny fraction of money compare with those FP I paid back in Sep (when all means nth now) and able to find a great alternative. FUT18 is likely my last FUT, unless EA makes huge changes, because I got my alternative already.
Just to share and to those who fed up of EA, hope you can find back some fun from football games like me in PES.
