The game does have many minor issues that may steer away users. In particular, the lack of a more engaging career mode and the arcade style of driving (including unrealistic crashes and little differentiation between cars) are a bit disappointing. Especially, considering those were primary complaints in previous chapters of the franchise. However, if you're simply looking for a couch-driving, not overly demanding racing game, then you may find yourself spending some good time with World Rally Championship 7.
All in all, PES 2018 is a very good game. It has less of a wow-factor than the competition, but it scores with realistic gameplay, solid game modes, and a good presentation. PES is not a perfect game and the great gameplay is a bit flawed by the excessive flamboyance of the players, but the overall feel of the title won't make you regret the dollars spent.
All in all, the game is not that bad, but you need to take it into the right prospect. It's an arcade game, focused on giving its players a fast experience with real teams and players. It's not a rival to The Show, nor does it try to come off as one.
