Our ambition was to recreate the perfect soccer environment, from the grass on the field, to the players' movement, all the way to the crowds in the stadium. To this end, we decided to create a new soccer engine with a newly built animation system and revamped game commands.
    The final result was even more impressive than we had originally conceived.
    We went beyond the border of PES, into a new realm of virtual soccer.
    To signal this new era, we have decided to part ways with our beloved PES brand and rename it "eFootball™"!
    Now we hope that you can enjoy this brand-new soccer experience that eFootball™ has to offer. [Konami]

    In PR terms, it's the world's costliest public beta. There's a lithe control system in the wreckage, but it'll take many updates to dig it out.

    This is a solid football game like the series has always been, but the lack of content and game modes simply means there is nothing to do in this game. You will get bored in a matter of hours.

    eFootball 2022 isn’t just a bad football game, it’s a bad videogame. It took Konami most of the 2010s to take Pro Evolution Soccer from a mediocre football game to something respectable, and can’t be expected to turn eFootball 2022 around quickly. Playing it sucked all of the enjoyment out of football, and I can’t help but feel it would have been better served being released as a digital pachinko game.

    It's the worst-rated game on Steam for a reason, soccer fans are left heartbroken.

    The game is straight up horrible, and I can’t understand how someone concluded that this was ready for release.

    The Pro Evolution Soccer series was all the time a worthy opponent for the popular football simulation FIFA. But the newest game from Konami eFootball 2022 has lost all of its glory of the past. The biggest problem of the title is not the small scope with only two gamemodes, nine licensed clubs and six stadiums, it’s the horrendous gameplay. The switch to the Unreal Engine does absolutely not work for the new football simulation from Konami. There is a lot of work to do in the next weeks, to make this game enjoyable and playable.

    eFootball 2022 is a disaster at launch. It's a buggy, unenjoyable mess with limited gameplay options that strip back the core strengths of the PES series, and the fact that it was released in this state at all is shocking. Konami may bring in fixes as it implements further free-to-play updates, but even then, the question over eFootball 2022's worth will still need to be repeatedly asked.

    I would be surprised if this game did not get game of the year. This game completely demolishes everything it is literally unbeatable. TheI would be surprised if this game did not get game of the year. This game completely demolishes everything it is literally unbeatable. The game is so advanced you would think that it came out in 7 years time. The best part about the game is that despite the fact that it is amazing it will get even greater in a couple months when all the game modes are included. Expand

    This is barely a game, it's glitchy, boring, ugly and it doesn't even have the content of a demo. I'm giving it a 1 just for mercy.

The graphics are awful, as the players barely look like themselves. The physics are also terrible.

    FIFA looks much better than eFootball this year.
