This is easily the perfect week for football gamers and the week that everyone has been waiting for. FIFA 14 and PES 2014 demos are now available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and naturally everyone is eager to see how both games are shaping up ahead of the crucial sales battle when the games are finally launched.
For those yet to sample both demos, we have picked out a few excellent gameplay videos for you to look at – showing you some full matches from the respective PES 2014 and FIFA 14 demos. The good news from feedback we’ve seen so far, is that PES 2014 is actually looking a lot more solid compared to last year’s edition and could give FIFA 14 a stronger challenge in the battle to take the top football game throne.
The first video you see above is taken from the PES 2013 demo, showing a full match between Santos FC and England, with commentary provided by Jim Beglin and Jon Champion. Take a look at the facial quality for Steven Gerrard as he emerges from the tunnel – pretty impressive you have to say.
Although the gameplay looks great, it is a shame to see PES 2014 missing some of the official faces that we see on FIFA. It looks like Konami were beaten to it by EA in terms of snapping up licenses, so you’ll have to put up with that if you are planning to buy PES 2014 on September 19, or September 20 in America.
As for FIFA 14, we have picked out a full match from the demo, giving you a preview of Barcelona vs the surprise demo selection from EA with Boca Juniors. You’ll instantly notice that the commentary is lot more impressive and realistic, with Martin Tyler and Alan Smith feeding off each other as you would see on television.
Check out both gameplay demos and let us know which game you will be buying. Is it an easy win for FIFA 14 again, or do you agree that PES 2014 is looking a lot better than last year?
