  1. eFootball PES 2020 is a well polished football simulation. I said simulation, because gameplay is much more slow and tactical. After playing years of FIFA, PES 2020 feels like a real change in a good way.

    It is a pity that these great mechanics are not underpinned by better modes.

    It is worth a look if you have even a passing interest in a game of footie.

    Grittier and more convincing than ever, Konami's soccer juggernaut excels on the pitch but barely tries off it.

    The overwhelming impression I got playing both games this year is that they’re just tired. Both series are in need of a fresh shot of adrenaline (and a fresh coat of paint), and they were never going to get it in 2019, in the twilight of the sixth console generation. We can only hope that this year’s stagnation is just a result of something bigger and better coming along next year.

    Once again on the face of it and on first impressions, there has never been a more realistic and slick representation of video game football.Once again on the face of it and on first impressions, there has never been a more realistic and slick representation of video game football. But once again, the scripting seems more potent and stronger than ever before......

    .......it might convince the kids, but for those like me who are a bit longer in the tooth with this series, all the familiar cheap stunts and tricks that the AI pulls which effectively renders the idea of the match being a genuine competitive event between two gamers, a mockery ('efootball' lol...yeah, sure). You will quickly find yourself being unable to bear more than one or two matches at a time before spamming for the Alt F4 key combination.

    To describe this game as 'good' would be like saying crack cocaine or meth amphetamine were good, by the same token, it is hard to describe it has bad, because I keep coming back to it, year after year at that, despite knowing exactly what kind of **** to expect.

    it all comes down to the moment you realise that actually you are not in control of your team but the system is making you feel like you are.it all comes down to the moment you realise that actually you are not in control of your team but the system is making you feel like you are. Konami"s strategy behind the game play logic is to make players buy coins to buy better player in hope of the game play will become back to normal and fast and better fingers win the match. Unfortunately this game is nothing different than the dummy games you play on your phone with in-game purchases. Expand

    Made an account just to say this game is a cancer in the sports game market. Do not be fooled by the fantastic ball physics, as you willMade an account just to say this game is a cancer in the sports game market. Do not be fooled by the fantastic ball physics, as you will rarely get to experience them. Your players will stand and stare at easily retrievable balls and gift goals away. Your goalkeeper will fail to save weak shots. Your players will fall over at the lightest touch, or they will be rugby tackled and the referee will penalise you. After almost 5 months of the game being out, CONnami have done little to nothing except count your money and do nothing to improve this atrocity. At this point, it is just a money farming machine, with absolutely no investment going back into the game. They take the game servers down for 6 hours every week, just to annoy their paying customers, they don't change anything in the game in these updates. Disgusting amounts of abusable tactics, such as "ping pong" passing, where you can spam 1-2s and go from one end of the pitch to the other without interference. If you play with Ronaldo and Vieira on your team, you cannot lose no matter how bad and clueless you are. Every match, your players play completely different from the last, the form arrows are meaningless. Some games your blue arrow 100 rated messi can miss open goals and basic 1-2s. There is no way FIFA is not the better game this year, at least there is a small amount of consistency. Don't bother playing against AI, they are either insanely stupid and you win 10-0, or they cheat and give themselves free kicks, and foul you in the box for no penalties. An absolute disgrace, appalled that I spent money to feel this way from a video game. A company full of animals and I strongly urge you to never buy one of their scams again. Expand

Matches against the I.A will go as it's predetermined despite your actual abilities to play. The ref is one of the worst of the entire saga. The liscencing is also very lame (I know there are patches, but you shouldn't have to do Konami's work). The offline modes are practicaly the same too, no truly inovation whatsoever.
    As the good parts, well, the gameplay is till better than FIFA. There's a good amount of leagues and the I.A is actually good.
