FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pressnews.biz (Press Release) Jan 7, 2015
-- FIFA 15 excels in several key areas but it’s the amazingly detailed presentation that stands above all other offerings. The EA Sports juggernaut simply sparkles from the minute you hit the menus. The design of the UI is simple with menus and modes clean and easy to navigate through – something that Konami are only now trying to emulate. The player screen that is the centrepiece of PES 2015 is a classy touch and the new tabs system is a step in the right direction.
On the pitch though, FIFA 15 simply blows PES 2015 away this year from a pure presentation standpoint. Commentary is still an area Konami leave largely untouched and while FIFA 15’s duo of Taylor & Smith still suffers from repetitiveness, it’s better than the woeful Beglin and Champion double act who read their lines irrespective of what’s happening on the pitch, sometimes even contradicting each other. Konami’s dotted line system for set plays looks slightly silly compared to the slick system FIFA 15 incorporates as well.
FIFA 15’s looks even more TV-esque this time around too. The stadiums look beautiful (especially at night) with close-up player shots looking amazing. PES 2015 is the best ever visual effort from the team at Konami but FIFA 15 looks and sounds glorious. Konami are getting there, but for now FIFA 15 stays ahead.
Winner: FIFA 15
PES 2015 attempts to take on FIFA’s hugely popular Ultimate Team mode with their own online mode called myClub.The basic premise is similar to FUT with gamers trying to amass players to create a fantasy team of superstars. Konami have even included their own take on the addictive pack opening system and the mode does feature some nice additions such as manager ratings and a team spirit system for lesser skilled players at your club.
It’s a good showing from the débutante mode but it fails to overtake Ultimate Team and this point is at the foundation of all modes when comparing FIFA 15 and PES 2015. Master League is back to its brilliant best but it’s completely stripped of features. There is no team training or stadium creator and the new features which Konami do implement are a mixed bag.
The Champions League tournament is amazing though and offers fans a world class mode but it’s not enough compared to all FIFA has going for it. The lack of proper image importing on next gen consoles means you can’t even have a sponsor on the unlicensed kits which isn’t Konami’s fault, but it still suffers because of it. It’s an area Konami need to work on for next year.
Winner: FIFA 15
For years, EA seemed happy to let Konami have the better looking sim with player faces and presentation on the pitch a major advantage in all previous PES games before FIFA 10. That’s all changed now though and FIFA 15 is one of the best looking titles on next gen consoles.
PES 2015 is a beautiful looking game also with superstar players looking eerily lifelike – as evidenced by the worlds best in the above screenshot. The problem with PES 2015 is the colour and lighting of the on pitch action.
The players look washed out from the default camera angle and much of the incredible graphics are lost from so far away. The crowds in PES 2015 are still poor. FIFA 15’s beauty is its saving grace most of the time Some players still look dodgy and will raise a chuckle every now and then but for the most part, FIFA looks like a Sunday broadcast lifted from the TV. The player models are much better in PES 2015 but overall, FIFA is a more attractive looking game, if only by a whisker.
Winner: FIFA 15
On the surface, FIFA 15 is the easy winner with the official Premier League but PES 2015 has done amazing work with football’s biggest competition; The UEFA Champions League. EA Sports quite rightly show off the Premier League license in nearly every menu but the exclusion of the Champions League and Europa League still frustrates millions of FIFA fans.
EA have exclusive rights to the Premier League for another year and similarly, Konami’s license with UEFA is up in 2016 so it will be interesting to see if all can be in both games.
As it stands, it depends whether you enjoy the aesthetic and realistic look over the fake leagues of PES 2015. The players are licensed so Aguero will be at Manchester City but for some people, just seeing Man Blue in the menu with a fake crest is enough to warrant a purchase of FIFA 15. It’s a pity because 15 minutes will see all premier league team names changed to reflect their proper team and the licensed teams look better than FIFA.
All in all, the Premier League and Bundesliga as well as the fully licensed Italian and Spanish divisions mean FIFA 15 wins by default.
Winner: FIFA 15
FIFA 15 is probably the worst online iteration in the series and PES 2015 is still struggling to give players a fair experience. When both play without their faults, PES 2015 shines through. The lag is minimal and the improved matchmaking means games are more even now. FIFA on the other hand, is still exciting and still always playable, no matter how frustrating.
At its worst, FIFA 15 continues to alienate its core fanbase. Most games descend into speed-fests with gamers unable to play proper football. Unfortunately, the same can be said for PES 2015. Both games have their flaws and for once their is no clear winner. FIFA 15’s problems are mixed with some being fixed and others ignored. The Xbox One version of the game is a lot better than Konami’s offering and vice-versa for the PS4. It’s nearly not worth choosing a winner but at a push, FIFA 15 just scrapes by, barely.
Winner: FIFA 15
