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 The PC version suffers from very outdated graphics.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]

    What really matters in a footy game?
    Gameplay, gameplay and gameplay.

    Does PES2017 have good gameplay?
    Yes it does. Very good, in fact.

    Do I really care about graphics?
    Yes, but it's not as important as gameplay.

    9/10 - Best footy game ever. Goodbye PES5 and PES6.

    I just know one thing. without this japanese Rival Fifa does not care about Football Fans and give every year same things with update squadI just know one thing. without this japanese Rival Fifa does not care about Football Fans and give every year same things with update squad and kits. i play all year pes 16 with all pte patch upgrade. let's see what major improvement in pes 17.

    1. User Interface - trendy and easy to understand.
    2. player physics - if you play pes 16 you definitely spot it. player first touch, long throw, turn, fake shot. everything improve.
    3. stadium edit - add two things....net pattern and net build. some more turf pattern.
    4. player face - huge improvement, at least fake player look like human.
    5. stadium - only camp nou is new one. other 16 is same.
    6. hair style and player edit - everything is same like last year..but because of graphic improvement you found little depth in hair and beard. include some more beard styles. and i love it when i create a manager for my master league.
    7. stadium atmosphere - i found this is very similar to pes 16. nothing much change.
    8. commentary - same like a pes 16.
    9. lot's of young players with real face but some high rated players face is missing.
    10. work like a charm with affordable pc machine.
    11. lot's of new advance tactics like tiki taka, gegenpress, bus parking, touch to line, false full back, target zone.
    12. performance meter arrow and attributes colour change so it's confusing some time.

    overall this game is great and best for thirsty football fans. and if you not satisfied buy fifa... you have a 365 day.

    Putting graphical eye candy and fancy animations to one side, on first appearances, PES 2017 seems like a further enhancement of the series,Putting graphical eye candy and fancy animations to one side, on first appearances, PES 2017 seems like a further enhancement of the series, and many ways it is. After a couple of dozen hours with the game however, gameplay becomes very dry, repetitive, and frustrating. Konami have tilted the AI far too heavily in the favour of the defense, which makes carving out chances in an evenly matched game a bit of an exercise in attrition. In the final analysis, the gameplay is dull as ditchwater. It gets only a 5/10 cos 2016 was so much better. They have made it worse....as for online, I hear it is a train wreck once again, but I wouldn't know how it is. I have not been able to successfully connect to an opponent even one time. Expand

    How could you even dare to release PES 17? It is exactly like 14-15-16. It has nothing changed during the last 3 years. I have always beenHow could you even dare to release PES 17? It is exactly like 14-15-16. It has nothing changed during the last 3 years. I have always been playing with PES until now, and I have always trusted in Konami and in its quality, and I hoped that something great will be in 17, but nothing. This is a huge pile of junk. It just deteriorates my computer and my eyes too. Big zero. Dear Konami I hope your sales will be in minus. It was really not cool against PC users, but I also tried on Xbox One and the game is junk on that too. It worth nothing since PES 2013...I would never say it as "my favourite", because I have waited the huge change since 2014 and nothing. Expand
