Even the in-game animation has improved to an extent where the players’ faces look a lot like their real-life counterparts. New shoot options like a chip shot and a controlled shot have been added as well, which give you several newer ways to score a goal. But there haven’t been any major tweaks to the gameplay. The way the players move, react and the in-game controls look very close to its earlier versions.
One of the major developments in PES 2018 is the introduction of David Beckham. Users now have a chance to curl in free-kicks just like Beckham, as more classic players have been added in the legendary players roaster. The online mode, which is called the Play Distant Owners (weird), offers a lot more options and is easily one of the game’s attractive features. Users can now play online matches in real time and challenge anyone from a friend to a top ranked champion for a match. However, there is a serious time lag for these matches to start which is usually based upon the availability of other players.
PES also has some serious team licensing issues which has been one of the franchisee’s main letdown. Real Madrid, for example, is called MD White while Manchester City is named Man Blue. No new updates are expected on this front though. Even with a few notable issues, PES still manages to keep its mobile version light and tidy and has a much better gameplay compared to EA FIFA’s mobile version. The game is available for free download while there are a few in-app purchases that ranges from INR80 to INR7,900.
