    Konami closes off the current generation with the best entry that we have seen so far. eFootball PES 2020 possesses, undoubtetly, the most realistic gameplay ever for a football game. Unfortunately, the game still lacks the same thing as the previous entries: its game modes do not have enough depth.

    eFootball PES 2020 is a delightful footy, with an addicting single-player and maybe the best ball physics ever. It's a shame that the game still hasn't fixed their old maladies (random sloppiness, budget presentation).

    There’s no doubt that Konami still focuses on the hardcore fan as it still needs to work on providing a more fun and enticing experience as it has the technological and simulation side down. There’s no doubt that eFootball PES 2020 is the best version of the game this generation, but it’s still geared towards its own community.

    eFootball PES 2020 is faithful to what the two previous games have built. On the pitch, it all feels great, but in terms of content and variety, there's still a lot of work to do.

    You can only review what is in front of you. And currently, PES 2020 seems out of form.

    Master League has improved slightly but It still wishes the in-game menus are changed. It is blocky and lacks some presentation sense. OtherMaster League has improved slightly but It still wishes the in-game menus are changed. It is blocky and lacks some presentation sense. Other than that, boy. It is such an amazing game. Played at my friends place the moment he got it and then after about 4-5 hours playing at his place, I got a copy of my own.

    People, don't just read the review or take note of those ratings that gives 0, those people who give 0 are clearly FIFA fan boys who are deeply hurt that their own game is getting worst in every instalment, just ignore them. Go to your friends place, try the game then decide if you like it or not.

    The game's gameplay is top-notch. So good that it actually feels like a real football game! The AI improved drastically from the PES 2019. PES 2019 Ai will constantly use the same move to score goals that you can never prevent, where else in this game. The Ai virtually response on how you play and exploit your weakness! Just like in a real football match.

    For me, this game is a solid 9/10.

    This year Konami has decided to renew its football franchise name from Pro Evolution Soccer to eFootball PES. According to the company, thisThis year Konami has decided to renew its football franchise name from Pro Evolution Soccer to eFootball PES. According to the company, this change, which will continue in the coming years, was due to a greater focus on eSports. But what impact has this change had and what's new in this eFootball PES 2020?

    Starting with the new licenses, Bayern München, Juventus and Manchester United (who replaced Liverpool FC) have partnered with the Konami game, meaning that Allianz Arena, Allianz Stadium and Old Trafford are also included. In addition, we also have the fully licensed French 2nd league, and next year we will have the fully official UEFA Euro 2020 through a free upgrade.

    About the Master League, when we start a new career we can choose as coach Johan Cruyff, Bebeto, Romário or Diego Maradona. And yes, the Master League have cutscenes (which you can perfectly pass on) where, for example, we see our coach greeting players when we are in a new club. We will also have to give press conferences and answer journalists' questions. I know this is nothing special, but it always adds a lot of content to the game. It should be noted that we can now choose the club's initial budget and adjust the frequency of the transfer market.

    Outside of the Master League, we have a new mode called Matchday. This means that we will face players in online matches during the Group matches in order to reach the Grand Finals. And in the end, we will receive rewards regardless of our performance. And one more thing, these same finals will be transmitted via livestream.

    Although Konami has not made many changes to the myClub menus, the UI has undergone some changes, such as player stats graphs. But not only. Now players who play well during the games of the week will appear as Featured players, which increases their ratings, gets more skills and earns a unique card design. Another important news in myClub is the addition of the National Team FP's, where we see special versions of players competing in the upcoming or recent national game.

    But let's get to the point that matters most in Pro Evolution Soccer: the gameplay. In a nutshell, smooth, fast and fun to play. The only things I have to point out are the pressure from the second and third players to the ball carrier, which is overkill, and the fault criterion is very inconsistent. About AI, I notice that CPU-controlled opponents now do shots outside of the area, which was very rare in previous PES. In previous titles the focus of AI was to cross the flanks.

    One of the most favorite and used modes in PES also has news. I speak of Edit Mode. We have more options and more flexibility when editing teams, players, leagues and competitions. We can import the partnership logos that will be shown in various ways, and an example of this are the press conference scenarios. Modes such as Rise to Stardom and Offline and Online Co-op are also present, as expected.

    About online itself, I had no reason to complain about the games I played, although it took me a long time to find someone with a stable connection. Graphically it remains a high quality game. The game environments aren't bad, but they could be better, especially at the beginning when the stadiums are full, but there is a lack of noise to make it more realistic and immersive. Who comments on the game in Portuguese are the usual Pedro Sousa and Luís Freitas Lobo. In this chapter, Konami hasn't evolved. Comments are still very repetitive and, unfortunately, the same goes for comments in English. All in all, it's a game with some inconsistencies and things that have long needed to be improved, but overall, I really enjoyed this eFootball PES 2020.

    Veredict: Despite some issues, eFootball PES 2020 is a step forward compared to Pro Evolution Soccer 2019.

Offline modes like BAL and Master league are way to monotonous. Online, the scrip in the game is absurd, I've literally can be playing three games a day and I win, lose and tie one with the same team, in one match the players are making perfect moves, the other one if I score first, the players start losing the ball until the other guy ties, in the other one, the passing starts being awful, the defense loses the ball passing in front of them, don't move, nothing. The stickers can't hold the ball, shoot the ball close wherever they want, starts being awful till the other team scores. A game that could have been the best sports game, ends up being a frustrating game where the IA decides who wins Expand
