    Above all else, the most meaningful stride forward is the new collision system, which so much now hinges on.

    It still plays great, better than FIFA - but we are fed up with graphics downgrades for PC gamers.

    Although technically once again inferior compared to the next-gen-console-versions, PES 2016 is one of, if not THE best football game we’ve played in the last six or seven years, mainly due to its completely overhauled tackling system and smoother animations.

    Quick and dynamic football game with incomplete licenses and (for PC version) ugly visuals with a few technical problems. Even a couple of regrettable changes in gameplay can’t cover that PES 16 offers a unique football experience.

    PES finally finds the balance between stout sim and accessible arcade, but a poor port cast shadow on an otherwise great game.

    An open, responsive football title with a lot of individual player freedom, but one that also has dodgy keepers, absent fouls, and the usual iffy online environment. The PC community may bring it up to scratch, but at release it’s an ugly port that does a disservice to the game within.

We’vePES 2016 isn’t perfect, but this is a major step forward for a series that was already improving in leaps and bounds each year. We’ve certainly no hesitation in calling PES 2016 the best football game of the generation so far. And although it’s toughest competition is yet to take to the pitch it’s very much Pro Evo which is now the team to beat. Expand

    I'm a FIFA player and usually I don't write reviews but this game really deserve one.

I only with FIFA 16 will "feel" like this and have at least same player and ball physics as this game have. Expand

There is always room for improvements though, I think Konami could take some ideas from NBA 2K Sports for ML mode, they should also get Gary Neville for commentary... I think we need a database to work with for players, D.O.B, Contract, Loans etc. should be updated like real life, aslo the overall price of players should be realistic Expand

    Gameplay is meh in single player with some strange decisions. Not brilliant. Online is horrible - lag tastic. Server support is terrible,Gameplay is meh in single player with some strange decisions. Not brilliant. Online is horrible - lag tastic. Server support is terrible, graphics are a joke (Seriously - so lo-res it's like football with legos). PS4 version not only looks a DAMN site better, it also plays better. This looks like an Xbox 360 game - something from 2008, which would be forgivable if the online experience was anything other than abysmal. Expand

    Major step backwards from the previous titles. The gameplay is absolutely ridiculous. The AI is a complete cheat, all the moves of your teamMajor step backwards from the previous titles. The gameplay is absolutely ridiculous. The AI is a complete cheat, all the moves of your team and opponent's are controlled by AI, giving you a bit of influence only. Sometimes you won't be even able to move for a second or two, only for the opponents to steal the ball. Talking about stealing the ball, if you have never seen a player taking the ball from behind your player, from between ur player's legs while you're running, then you're in for a treat. That's how you'll get cheated a lot. Close control? forget it! 4 players closing you from 4 directions and nowhere to move without losing the ball. Goalkeepers don't exist, just don't even think there are any. They will literally let the ball through from the center of the pitch. Defense is always trying to offside trap, so they are constantly chasing the counter attackers hitting at your door! The opponents are also always contr-attacking only. There's no variety in the game at all. It's a waste of money and time. It's still unfixed, and now they announced PES 2017, which I will give a wide miss. Konami is no more for me, and so is PES.
