PES 2016 vs. buy fifa coins, Super Mario Maker slopes, and Rocket League

Sep 11th 2015 at 10:50 PM

Passing decision As a recent (re)convert to buy fifa coins PES, I figured I would try out the new FIFA 16 demo just to see what I was missing and try out the (genuinely promising!) new women’s national teams…

Well… what a sorry mess it is! My first game between USA and Germany ended in a disappointing 1-0 defeat as the referee gave a bizarre free kick, from which my goalkeeper decided to take evasive action, scything down my left back leaving an open goal for Melanie Leupolz to slot home.

Figuring perhaps these bugs were just limited to the women’s teams (perhaps on the executive orders of sexist despot Sepp Blatter himself), I moved onto a title clash between Man City and Chelsea. This, however, was similarly decided after a poor through ball that was cut out, then played back to Courtois who couldn’t even show the courtesy of flinging a leg, Paul Robinson style, before the ball rolled gently into the back of the net.

Of course this was a demo after all, so I shouldn’t have expected a perfect simulation, but having seen similar broken gameplay experiences online and given the minimal new features and gameplay changes of this year’s instalment, I don’t think I’ll have much problem deciding which to get this year.
