PES is back with PES 2018

Just when you thought you can’t play soccer with your hands, Konami just released its latest installment in the game series Pro Evolution Soccer, the Pro Evolution Soccer 2018. Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2018 was released worldwide last September 2017. The game is available on platforms like Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, XBox 360, and XBox One. The newest version is smoother to play and has upgraded graphics and sound effects. The way the characters move make it seem like you are watching a live game because of how intricate the movements are. You could see that Konami really made sure that the characters would move almost the same as the real players that inspired the characters in the game. The game received almost perfect scores from video game critics and players, just like what its previous versions have been receiving for the past years.

How to Play

  1. Make sure to practice.

Just like any other game, practice is the key to success. Never underestimate the training games and always perform as if it’s a real match. If you maintain a competitive spirit, then you’ll be able to get the gist of the game in no time.

  1. Know when to use tricks in the game.

You can’t always use tricks, especially if the timing is not right. Remember that tricks could be risky because you might give the opponent the chance to steal the ball if you failed to execute it. This is why use tricks only when the time is right. If you really want to use tricks, then you need to practice them so that you’ll get used to them.

  1. Master free kicks and corner kicks.

These kicks are now common in the latest PES and it’s even easier to make them because you could adjust the camera according to the angle that is favorable for you to make the shot.

  1. Learn about the player you’re using.

Each player has a different role. You need to consider the roles so that you could play efficiently and use the player’s abilities to your advantage.

  1. Explore the other teams too.

You don’t necessarily need to always use the best and famous teams to score a goal or to win a game. It all depends on how you handle the player. Try using the other teams too, if you could master using them, then it is easy for you to adapt to any player.

  1. Have an in-depth understanding of the game.

This is vital in every game, especially in games like PES 2018. Learning to play efficiently and knowing when to use tricks and being aware of your position makes you an intelligent player. Mastering all of these would make you an excellent player.

  1. Learn to use techniques.

This can be different for every player because each player has a different role. This can be controlling, dribbling, passing, and tackling the ball. Studying the techniques for each role, lets you know how to move in the game.

  1. Be patient.

If you’re a beginner, it could take time to adjust to the controls, to know how to manipulate the moves of the players, and to make successful goals in the game. It could be difficult at first, but you can improve as you continue to play. Patience is needed when you play PES 2018. If you combine patience with practice and dedication, then you become unbeatable.

The 17th installment of the Pro Evolution Soccer, Pro Evolution Soccer 2018, is probably the best among the other versions. Konami made it easier to control and use the players. It is easier to pass and dribble the ball, because of how smooth the transitions are. If you don’t want to play soccer under the heat of the sun, then you could play PES 2018 instead.
