It’s out this Friday, and the first batch of reviews of Konami’s PES 2013 have just landed. PES is a series that has gotten progressively better over the past three years, and all signs point to 2013 being the best PES in years…

CVG:
9.1: Tweaked in all the right places, 2013 is the finest PES of the generation, delightfully recreating the ebb and flow of the modern game. [Full Review]

X360:
9/10: The FIFA vs PES debate will rage, as always, but this year, no matter which one you plump for, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re hungry for the glory, the beauty and the magic of PES, though, you know what to do. It’s so good to have you back. [Full Review]

IGN:
8.5: it offers a unique and challenging take on the beautiful game that’s distinctly different from its competition. After years of heartache for PES fans, it’s great to see Konami’s footy game finally beginning to step out from EA’s gargantuan shadow. [Full Review]

OPM:
8/10: PES 2013 marks the biggest step forward for the series on PS3. FIFA 13’s liquid animations and peerless physics system still give it the trophy-hoisting edge, but now PES’ unique strengths are refined enough to make it a genuinely worthwhile alternative. [Full Review]

OXM:
8/10: Konami pulls a Man-City-style turnaround [Full Review]

NOWGamer:
8.8: PES 2013 puts Konami’s game back on top. It’s the PES game we’ve been waiting for since 2007. Brilliant. [Full Review]

PlayStation Universe:
8.5: This is the first time for a number of years that we’ve been totally engrossed in Pro Evolution Soccer.

VideoGamer.com:
8: It’s the finest Pro Evolution Soccer we’ve seen [Full Review]

Metro:
7/10:  Konami is looking to close the gap, and while we are still waiting on FIFA, it seems they have done it. [Full Review]

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is currently due for release on Friday, September 21st 2012.
