    The lack of licences for top-tier leagues remains a disheartening sticking point, but PES continues to make brilliant strides on the pitch, building on what was already an incredibly satisfying game of football to produce one of the greatest playing football games of all time. It might be lacking off the pitch, but put it on the field against the competition and a famous giant killing wouldn't be all that surprising.

    On the pitch PES 2019 it really is the beautiful game. But it needs some serious improvements in the game modes and online options.

    PES 2019 continues polishing its gameplay experience to be as good as it gets, but its game modes are lazy and have not evolved at all.

    The perfect football sim for playing your mates or tackling online but major AI flaw renders the offline experience boring and uninspiring.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 is the most real football simulator currently available on the market, and it offers a great football experience to both hardcore and arcade players. Nevertheless, the same old problems and issues such as teams and players licenses kick back in and prevent PES2019 from becoming the most complete football simulator too.

    This year's game feels like a transition year. Small changes make it better overall, but other issues drag it down with a bang.

    The most important aspects - how it looks and the feel of play - are top-drawer, but this only makes the surrounding drabness even more disappointing, and ensures that PES will remain the preferred choice of contrarians only.

    This is so unfair !! I have no respect to the critics !! They gave a 75 score to the best football game ever in terms of gameplay !!! And theyThis is so unfair !! I have no respect to the critics !! They gave a 75 score to the best football game ever in terms of gameplay !!! And they already gave FIFA an 85 without seeing it or coming out yet !!! This is so pathetic and biased. I am talking to you all soccer users. If you want to play football this year, get PES 2019. If you want to see videos and presentation but bad football, then get FIFA 19. Expand

Best footie game I've ever played hands down, no licenses download the files I'm going to design a few kits myself. Graphics out of this world, although i don't have a pro for 4k it's wow well done Konami 10/10 Expand

By the way, the demo was very good and that what madeI had high expectations of this game and I bought legend edition making a big mistake. By the way, the demo was very good and that what made me buy it. The final version is an absolute trash.
    Defending is an absolute joke, headers are non existent while low cross is to overpowered. Last year in PES scoring from crosses was to overpowered and this year scoring with headers is garbage. Many times the defenders stand by and watch the ball rolling or an attacker passing by with ease and score. Changing the player when out of posession is also very bad and it changes a player far away from the ball or the attacker. Passing the ball is a mess even when you are very well positioned and many times the ball reaches straight into the opposing player. Those long balls over the defense are the most OP in this game. My club game mode is nothing but a CASH COW for KONAMI, same as the other football competitor and players contracts are to expensive. The only option to survive in MY Club is to farm coins but then there is no charm in playing it anymore.
    The only good thing with this game is player animations and ball physics and thats why i will give it a 2 star rating: one for the animations and one for the ball physics.
    I am neither a Fifa or PES fanboy . I just want to play a decent football game but in the last few years none of them deserved to be played.
    Konamy doesnt care only butt money, and they dont give a damn about game quality!

    FIFA is much much better than this pile of garbage. First of all never listen to the PES community because is just a bunch of blind fanboys,FIFA is much much better than this pile of garbage. First of all never listen to the PES community because is just a bunch of blind fanboys, they keep saying Konami gives us a real football experience while the EA game is just for casual players, absolute false and laughable. Robotic movements, you don't have the feeling of controlling the players at 360 grades; terrible atmosphere, horrendous IA, referees and GKs, Master League loses at FIFA 04's career mode, the online is frustrating as hell because of lags and no skills required, lack of licenses etc. PES 19 worth 0 euro, maybe would be a decent mobile football game for that price.
