See how different players control the ball in unique and different ways based on where and how you control them, dictating the flow of the game based on how they react to the unpredictable movement of the ball. In addition, there is more control in how you receive passes, and depending on the pass, players can visually execute the exact play intended, from receiving a pass to sending the ball out again.

    Passing, scoring opportunities, tactical depth – PES 2017 is a soccer masterpiece. The PC version suffers from very outdated graphics.

    Fantastic gameplay of the new Pro Evolution Soccer is flawed by unamusing gameplay modes, terrible PC version and suspicious multiplayer. But the football itself is made so well that the rest almost doesn't matter.

    PES 2017 is an invitation to the best virtual soccer you've seen in years, if you're willing to overlook the lack of official licenses and some annoying technical glitches.

    Looks like Konami managed to create perfect gameplay for virtual football: it has the right tempo, the right AI, and even goalkeepers are great – in terms of realism of the matches PES 2017 came close to perfection. Unfortunately, everything else is just sad. For example, licenses – they were never Konami’s strong suit, but this time there are only three real teams in Bundesliga, and even Juventus was turned into some weird PM Black White.

    The changes in gameplay are welcome and the super-defenders need a bit more effort to beat, but overall the changes are minimal. We have again the same "last-gen" version of Fox Engine, while the console counterparts enjoy upgraded visuals. With this installment of PES, KONAMI makes a clear statement that it doesn't care about the PC community.

    PES 2017 on PC is a mess, especially when comparing it to the PS4/Xbox One version.

    The PC version of Pro Evo stayed way behind the console editions and obviously exists only to squeeze some cash out of fans. Don’t buy it – either try FIFA 17 or keep playing PES 2016. It seems we need to wait until Pro Evo PC’s corpse decays completely and turns to dust to see it thoroughly overhauled. [12/2016, p.67]

    amazing football simulator. those of you who understand football to its depth will surely enjoy it.
    great dribble system, great passing system with a nice amount of options, solid AI, and even decent goalkeepers.
    if your looking for original team logos and names, you should buy FIFA. if you like football games for the football, you should go with PES

    Have been playing PES since PES2010, before which I used to play just Fifa series. It was the game play which switched me from FIFA to PES, soHave been playing PES since PES2010, before which I used to play just Fifa series. It was the game play which switched me from FIFA to PES, so yeah I don't give a **** about graphics anyways.

    The strength of PES lies in its gameplay. If you are about graphics, stadiums, fan chants or commentary..please stick with FIFA series rather than ranting on Konami for giving us a bad game. It's not bad at all on PC. The only con for me was the bad optimization on the PC version as it stutters even for good configured PCs. I have fixed them using a 3rd party software..which is the only reason I find to hate this game.It was same with PES 2016 and that's why I give it a 7/10. In terms of gameplay, this is THE BEST football game produced till today, even the critics say that and for each port including PC.

    Coming back to rant boys, didn't we all use to say that PES6 was the best and Konami should develop something similar? Now when they have actually surpassed PES6 with PES16 and now one step further with PES17 why are we complaining? This is a company which is struggling to cope up with restrained budget and EA is forever increasing its arm-twisting for licensed leagues, stadiums and teams. Still they come out each year with a beautiful game which ALWAYS plays better than Fifa. We should be actually supporting them when they need us. If PES goes dead..EA will be a monopoly with FIFA series and we might be worse off.

    Criticise where it needs criticism. Like the optimization on PC, online servers etc. Stop complaining about graphics or just buy a console or switch to FIFA series.
