- CVG: 91 - "Tweaked in all the right places, 2013 is the finest PES of the generation, delightfully recreating the ebb and flow of the modern game."
- OXM UK: 8/10 - "Niggles aside, there's no denying that PES 2013 is a huge improvement over the last few offerings."
- OPM UK: 8/10 - "While familiar faults persist, PES 2013 marks the biggest step forward for the series on PS3."
- IGN: 8.5 - "It's not ground breaking and it's by no means perfect, but PES 2013 - more than its recent predecessors - feels like a game with a sense of identity and direction."
- Videogamer: 8/10 - "Konami's latest outing shares the same values as arcade stalwarts such as Tekken, offering a sense of achievement for every individual that decides to press start."
- Metro: 7/10 - "We do sometimes, even if it is briefly, get the feeling we're playing a classic PES game from the series. Still rough around the edges though."
- PlayStation Universe: 8.5 - "Across the board the improvements are clear to see, from the improvement in graphics to what really matters, the gameplay."
- Nowgamer: 9.1 - "The FIFA vs PES debate will rage, as always, but this year, no matter which one you plump for, you won't be disappointed."
