FIFA 18: 3 things you can do on PES 2018 but not on FIFA

Let's hope EA's next game lets us do a few of these things

FIFA 18 may have a load more leagues and licences than PES, but Konami’s game still has a few tricks under its sleeve.

This is especially true when it comes to gameplay.

Here, with help of YouTuber DTT, we pick three incredible PES features that aren’t in EA Sports’ game.

Let’s kick off.

Ankle breakers

Believe it or not, you can’t actually pull these off in FIFA.

For those of you not familiar with the lingo, it means changing direction so quickly that it causes the oncoming defender to fall over.

Much like this:


Pretty cool, right?

It would certainly make FIFA skill and goal compilations that little bit more enjoyable to watch.


In EA’s game you’re unable to dive, but with a press of a button on PES you’re able to hit the floor.

It’s actually always been a feature in Konami’s football series but has never been on FIFA.

Obviously you get a yellow card each time you do this, but it’s certainly fun to pull off.

To be fair, it would be utter carnage on Ultimate Team if this was introduced, so maybe EA was right to give this a miss.


Slipping over

Need we say more?

When it’s raining, the players on PES will fall over randomly when they lose their grip.

It happens when it’s dry, too, but much more frequently in wet conditions.

Here’s a clip of Gerard Pique falling over to illustrate the above.


Great attention to detail, Konami.
