Whether playing online or off, there's a huge amount to do here and a huge amount to love about it. Put the effort in and you're repaid with a genuine sense of satisfaction and a feeling of real accomplishment. Once again, PES has set an incredibly high level of quality for other sports games to try and match.

A timely overhaul that should take a great game to new heights - though it's not quite on peak form this year.

At times it seems indistinguishable from last year's game, but the slower play speed and improved controls work well and make this the best PES yet.

The most satisfying football game ever, wrapped in a frustratingly ugly shell.

This is the best Pro Evolution Soccer of the last years and it guarantees hours and hours of entertainment online or with your friends. However, its wonderful graphics are not enough to compensate the lack of licenses and the lack of innovation in some game modes.

PES 2018 is a great football game that delivers a fun experience across its various modes. The actual in match gameplay can be sublime and its hardly ever boring thanks to the lack of stoppages. Konami has created a real contender for this year's footballing crown, but issues like the simple nature of the commentary, and AI being a little silly at times hold it back from being proclaimed champion just yet. However, if you love your football then PES 18 is well worth picking up.

PES 2018 offers a fun and accessible game experience. The handling and the behavior of the players is impeccable, but the game modes and the technical aspects of the game have not varied significantly with respect to the previous entrance of the saga.
