    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.

    PES 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’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. Last two PES games I didn't like them, but this PES 16I'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

    Hands off!!!!!! I can live with the poor Pc port, i can live with the lack of actualized Formations....I CANT live with the f...ing MomentumHands off!!!!!! I can live with the poor Pc port, i can live with the lack of actualized Formations....I CANT live with the f...ing Momentum it has. Sometimes everything work like miracle and i win on highest difficulty 7:0!!!! Sometimes everything goes wrong and you just wont score and you lose 4:0 wit the AI having 4 shots!! Its just ridiculous how much the game takes control over whats happening on the Pitch. I played 1 vs 1 with my friend. Same teams....first match he wins 4:0, second match i win 6:0!!!! Same teams who are on the same level. Its just super stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i give it 3 Stars because it could be the greatest Football game ever. It feels wonderful playin it.....until AI completely f...s it up. Dont buy it!!! Expand

    Shame on you konami. They kept quiet about the PC version and were vague about its details, and imagine the surprise (not really) on many PCShame on you konami. They kept quiet about the PC version and were vague about its details, and imagine the surprise (not really) on many PC gamers when they realized they did a f***ing last gen port again like PES 2015. Servers are s***, and you bet the cheaters will be back in full force.

    The best part is konami trying to cover up and treating PC gamers like idiots. Go to steam, you will see konami listing PES 2016 as a bundle which consists of just 1 game - PES2016. This way you are not able to see the negative reviews that people have put on steam. Terribly shady business and f*** you konami. I will be buying fifa for the PC for this year and the coming years until you learn to treat PC gamers with respect.
