While both games are great in their own ways, and diehard fans of either game will be hard to sway, most of us only have the time and money to spare for one new football game every year. So, of course, the question is FIFA 19 or PES 2019.


FIFA 19 is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC and costs £49.99in the UK and $59.99 in the US.

PES 2019 has an RRP of £54.99/$59.99 but it’s available for less on Amazon. You can get it for PS4 or Xbox One. Amazon US also stocks it




FIFA 19 is the more streamlined, accessible football game. It’s not easier per se, but it’s easier to get into and feel like you are improving, with a gentler learning curve.

We have also found that in FIFA you have have to learn so many more buttons combos than in PES. Curling a shot requires a combo, as does one-twos, but that’s not the case in PES 2019.

There are intricate controls in there, but you don’t need to master them all in order to win difficult matches. FIFA 19 rewards silky stepovers and tactical flourishes, but it doesn’t demand you know them all during the first match.

PES 2018 was a nearly perfect execution of how football should feel.

This year, they’ve added 11 new skills, including the cross-over turn, no-look pass, controlled chip, dipping shot and rising shot.

Players also show Visible Fatigue, which impacts performance and behaviour.

PES 2019’s gameplay is truer to life — i.e., it’s a bit harder to master. The attention to detail is greater too, with passes in particular very polished. A player will play a different style of pass depending on the set up of the surrounding players and adds a surprising feeling of variety and lifelike feel to gameplay.



FIFA’s gameplay leans a bit more to the offense and PES is more of a defensive gaming experience. Which one you value kind of depends on what you prefer. This is really too close to call, and it would be unfair to give one game the edge over the other here.

This was a major win for FIFA 19 this year–at least on offense. Your teammates will continue to run even after delivering a pass or in anticipation of receiving one. This action creates angles for through-balls and other rapid passing opportunities.


Pes 19 – You’ll notice there’s a huge divide between officially licensed players and teams — Messi or Coutinho, for example — and those that are not. The creative duo from Barcelona both look fantastic and the Camp Nou is rendered in stunning detail.There are many teams that boast generic faces that lack detail. When placed next to face-scanned stars such as Leo Messi, it makes for an unflattering comparison.


The same goes for stadiums. Walking out on to the Camp Nou feels every bit as epic as it should do. The same can’t be said for some of the fictional stadia — often exposing poorly detailed crowd models and flat lighting.

Fifa 19 – Crowd detail has improved — look closely and you’ll see individual members waving flags — while player animation makes last year’s version look animatronic.Player faces are, for the most part, incredibly detailed — and far more consistent than the likes of PES. They do boast an unrealistic shine under some lighting, though.

While we’re talking graphics, we have to talk presentation too. Like in previous years PES’ menus and UI are truly awful. This is same basic user interface we’ve had for years and it remains slow, ugly and frustrating.


Both games feel more fluid than their predecessors and as a result offer up a more realistic game of football. FIFA’s new Active Touch System is arguably the biggest gameplay tweak across both games. While PES has stood still, FIFA has made the most of its licenses while at the same time improving its on-field product and singleplayer innovations, resulting in one of the most comprehensive and enjoyable sports games in years.

Unfortunately, PES 2019 can’t hide behind the few teams it has licensed and put on the box and throughout its menus — FIFA 19 is simply a more rounded experience. FIFA 19 also has a bigger online community and better one player options, plus some excellent new offline multiplayer modes.
