Nov 24, 2014It might be irritating that there aren't enough licensed teams, but I do think the football purists will prefer the on-the-pitch action of this game.
Nov 24, 2014PES 2015 just lives and breathes Soccer. After years of decent iteration on the series' core tenets, I almost didn't expect something as impressive as this. That being said, it's just a crying shame Konami seemingly insists on confirming every single stereotype one might have had when it comes to the pathologically shaky online aspect.
Nov 20, 2014If you’re looking for a PES game that vastly improves over the previous games, you’re in for serious disappointment.
Nov 18, 2014This PES delivers a stability in the build-up and situative elegance – almost like in the good old PS2 era. But with an unstable online mode even a few days after release as well as a few visual shortcomings this is only one more step back to greatness. It will still take a while to get there.
Nov 18, 2014Konami again delivers a solid football game, however, other than the mechanics of the football itself, the overall experience seems a bit outmoded compared to its main competitor.
Nov 17, 2014A hit and miss. PES2015 is years behind of what we've come to expect from a soccer game, and it's still no competitor to FIFA.

Nov 11, 2014this game is not perfect but i ll give it a 10 because it s going in the right direction(simulation rather than arcade). it doesn't try to bethis game is not perfect but i ll give it a 10 because it s going in the right direction(simulation rather than arcade). it doesn't try to be spectacular all the time. this is how a football game should be. i tested almost every mode and i have to say as a fifa fan i m impressed. Unlike fifa 15 Pes 2015 doesn't feel staged. u cant always rely on pace. the stamina system works. GK are good without being super humans. dribbling, free kicks takes practices. it seems like years later fifa and pes have switched places. fifa is becoming more of an arcade game and pes more like a simulation.… Full Review »
Nov 11, 2014FIFA, get off the throne; the king is back!
Alright, let's get the few negatives out of the way first; FIFA has more stadiums, moreFIFA, get off the throne; the king is back!
Alright, let's get the few negatives out of the way first; FIFA has more stadiums, more licenses and much better commentary. That's it.
When it comes to gameplay and actual football, PES is back to it's best and simply light years ahead. This isn't ridiculously over-powered dribbling and charging around at 100mph, this is whatever you want it to be; precise passing, off the ball movement and possession based? You can do that. Sit deep and work on the counter? Sure. Big players and long ball tactics? That's there too.
They have simply nailed it in all areas. Passing is sharp, shooting feels great, the AI find space and move brilliantly, the tactical depth is unmatched and that's before we get to the player and team styles. Players play like themselves; Robben, Ronaldo, Pirlo....they move and play like their real life self. The differences between each team is even better; Bayern pass you to death and press, Atletico sit deep and make it difficult, it makes every game different.
The edit mode is missing a few things, but it's still terrific. You can fix just about everything from team/player names to kits and you can add missing teams; it makes the lack of licenses no big deal. Even the dreadful commentary doesn't get in the way, people new to PES will find it very, very basic and at times awful, but anyone who has played PES in the past will only laugh, over the years you even start to appreciate it.
All in all, it is by far the best football game on the market. PES spent a few years in the basement, but the king has returned and reclaimed it's throne.… Full Review »
Nov 11, 2014Game-play is quality. You can play thousands of hours and you wouldn't even notice, every game is unique, every goal is unique. HUGEGame-play is quality. You can play thousands of hours and you wouldn't even notice, every game is unique, every goal is unique. HUGE improvement from pes2014.
Keepers are alot better. Shooting is fabulous. Passing is great.
Konami still need to improve somethings like Modes, Commentary(awful) and of course the licenses.
Summary - Beautiful game, BEST of its generation, but not all-time best.… Full Review »
