Fifa 19 vs pes 19: fifa


FIFA 19 is finally here – but is it any good? And more importantly, does it fare better than Konami’s PES 2019?

Things haven’t quite gone to lớn plan for PES this year. Having lost the Champions League licence, the Japanese developer needed khổng lồ use every trick in the book khổng lồ give PES a fighting chance.

Konamày moved the launch window to late August, in an attempt to piông xã up early sales. They acquired the licence rights khổng lồ a number of smaller clubs. They even got David Beckyêu thích involved.

But come launch week, physical sales were down 40 per cent on last year. The writing could well be on the wall – more on that later.

EA, meanwhile, has thrived.

Having acquired the rights khổng lồ the Champions League & built a huge user-base of loyal fans – FIFA 19 represents a honing rather than a FIFA 17-style overhaul.

Frostbite returns, Alex Hunter’s Journey is baông xã for its final chapter, while daring House Rules aims to attract a new legion of ‘super causal’ fans – more interested in fun min-games than football proper.

Which brings us nicely to lớn our review.

Here we’ll discuss graphics, gameplay, general presentation as well as add-ons. In essence, we’re interested in two things – is the game fun to play? And value for money.


PES 2019

Konami’s game is once again powered by the Fox Engine. However, unlike last year, there’s no last-ren version – so the developer has channelled all its energy inlớn getting the most from current gen.

The result is crystal clear 4K HDR on Xbox One X và PS4 Pro – with a cấp độ of detail that remains consistent no matter what camera angle or zoom you opt for.

Should you choose lớn take a closer look you’ll notice just how much attention has been paid to some player faces this year.

We must stress some – there are many teams that boast generic faces that laông chồng detail. When placed next to face-scanned stars such as Leo Mesmê mẩn, it makes for an unflattering comparison.

The same goes for stadiums. Walking out on lớn the Camp Nou feels every bit as epic as it should bởi. The same can’t be said for some of the fictional stadia – often exposing poorly detailed crowd models & flat lighting.

Real time ‘Global Illumination’ lighting và shadows, not lớn mention revised grass texture, help keep everything looking crisp for the most part – especially during replays.


Konami may have lost the Champions League but they’re clearly not giving up without a fight


EA brings Frostbite back for its third year in FIFA 19 – và third time’s a charm.

While a lot of attention has been placed on gameplay this year, graphics have sầu had a noticeable boost.

Crowd detail has improved – look closely & you’ll see individual members waving flags – while player animation makes last year’s version look animatronic.

Player faces are, for the most part, incredibly detailed – và far more consistent than the likes of PES. They bởi boast an unrealistic shine under some lighting, though.

Elsewhere, the stadium and match environment has been given a much needed spit and polish, too.

There’s more stuff going on on the sidelines, while new cut-scenes and match presentation helping games feel indistinguishable from the real thing

Animation is where the game has really improved – and while it’s still prone to the odd glitch, it’s far smoother across the board.



PES 2019

Konangươi has kept gameplay largely the same this year – & why wouldn’t they? PES 2018 was a nearly perfect execution of how football should feel.

This year, they’ve sầu added 11 new skills, including the cross-over turn, no-look pass, controlled chip, dipping shot and rising shot.

Players also show Visible Fatigue, which impacts performance and behaviour.

Elsewhere, new shooting mechanics take inkhổng lồ tài khoản improved ball physics, player and ball position, & player skills & shot styles.

This all helps make PES 2019 feel absolutely fantastic to play.

There’s little- to-no đầu vào delay, dribbling is exhilarating & responsive sầu, while banging in goals from outside the area is an absolute joy.

Goalkeepers have improved this year, so won’t leak goals from corners – meaning scoring feels every bit as rewarding as it should vì chưng.


EA’s game has come on leaps and bounds this year – & is far more fluid & enjoyable than FIFA 18.

It definitely feels easier khổng lồ score worldies this time, while passing & through balls have been tweaked khổng lồ allow for more player control. A large part of this is down khổng lồ the new Active Touch system.

But it’s actually more subtle changes that make the biggest difference here. For one, there’a timed shooting mechanic.


Frostbite returns with aplomb in FIFA 19

If you tap Circle or B just as your foot hits the ball, you massively increase the chance of striking it inlớn the top corner.

It’s all about timing, so get it wrong và you’ll be punished with a scuffed shot.

trò chơi plans have sầu also been introduced this year – which are set up before a match.

Here, you can phối what tactics your team has depending on certain situations – such as if they’re 1-0 up or losing a match.

Once you have made the plans, simply assign to a D-pad press and you’re good to lớn go.

A revised mini-bản đồ now displays one team with triangle icons, the other with circles – so it’s easier to lớn see who’s who. While 50/50 battles now take into lớn account how you have played within that game, as well as player traits.


Overall package & value for money

PES 2019

This is where Konami’s game begins to fall apart.

Master League returns – pretty much unchanged apart from Team Roles. There are 22 lớn be exact – ranging from Hero to Legkết thúc, which affect your club’s finances.

It forces you lớn think about players not just as professional footballers, but as financial assets, which adds an interesting mix. Kind of.

Other than that, there’s MyClub, which is where you essentially build a team and play through a number of leagues.

There’s an online season mode, where you piông chồng a side và battle up 12 or so divisions (good luchồng getting past Division 9).

Presentation in PES is dated

In fairness, the servers hold up well – & you’ll nearly always find a game, so that’s a plus.

Away from online và there’s skill games, a decent training section and, well, that’s about it.

The menu is simple enough to lớn navigate but looks uninspired, while the soundtrachồng features songs that are now a couple of years old. Fitting, as the whole presentation feels dated.

And don’t get us started on ‘Man Red’ et al. Just don’t.


Where vì we begin.

EA has crammed this year’s game with a host of new features.

There’s The Journey, which we’re still yet khổng lồ complete, but sees off Alex Hunter in style. Ultimate Team speaks for itself, while Career Mode’s baông chồng albeit with minimal changes.

Then there’s the new House Rules section – featuring Survival Mode, headers & volleys, no ref và much more. And yes, they’re all as fun as they sound – especially Survival Mode.

Graphics have sầu been improved on FIFA this year

You’re able to jump in & play a Champions League match at any time, & hundreds of teams are fully licensed & look the part. There’s licensed balls, stadiums… the menu goes on.

There’s simply so much crammed inlớn this game that it’s impossible lớn fit it all in.


Closing thoughts

I love PES – I really do. But it missed one fundamental trichồng when it launched this year. It should have cut its price khổng lồ £trăng tròn.

That’s what I would be willing to pay for a game that doesn’t offer much more than incredible gameplay và serviceable online modes.

Should Konangươi vì that, it would make PES ar far more attractive sầu proposition.

Gone would be a ‘FIFA or PES’ argument – at £đôi mươi it would allow gamers to lớn enjoy both games for what they really are, without having khổng lồ choose.

All hail the king

As things stvà, though, that scenario is some way off.

For now, even though gameplay isn’t as refined as Konami’s game, EA’s FIFA 19 represents a better, more sensible purchase in nearly every other aspect.

There’s simply something for everyone – be that fun mini games, an engaging single-player story or Ultimate Team.
