    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.

    PES 2019 is by far and away the best football sim money can buy, boasting an enviable level of depth and authenticity FIFA simply can’t hope to match. While the sheer variety of game modes ensures players will be enjoying Konami’s latest for months to come. The biggest drawback is clearly the lack of official licences. Which, unfortunately, will make it exceedingly difficult for PES to win over any but FIFA’s most lukewarm fans.

    Great new animations, magical moments, improved pass/receiving mechanics, and a lot more, makes for another great year of PES. It could have had more league licenses though.

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

    PES 2019 is great at really understanding soccer and making it feel like a real game. The controls are tight, the unpredictability is amazing and it feels like a very solid experience. The only thing that is bothering us are the other players and referees.

    The gameplay seems real football, but online modes and contents in general are too stuck with the past.

    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.

    10 out of 10 might be unrealistic but 0 definitely is being silly. Every year the same complaints about licenses and this year complaints10 out of 10 might be unrealistic but 0 definitely is being silly. Every year the same complaints about licenses and this year complaints about menus - really guys? Who cares. You don't play the menus. Complaints about lack of licenses - similarly who cares. Get a patch off the internet and 5 minutes later it is not an issue. There is only one question to answer - do you like football? Are you a purist about football games or just a casual gamer who values style over substance? If the answer to either of these questions if yes then PES is probably your game. It has being that way for about 15 years now, its not going to change any time soon. Expand

    I know I'm a little late to reviewing this but yeah, here goes.

    Pros:
    - Beautiful gameplay and graphics. The animations are just so good, there's nothing more special than firing in a volley from 25 yards out.
    - Celebrations, there's just so many. I ran to the side of the pitch and 2 of my team mates picked up the mics, was brilliant.
    - Press conferences in the offline modes are a nice touch.
    - The indepth create a character, especially compared to FIFA. So many hairstyles to choose from, even the intensity of your beard.
    - The licensed stadiums are just on a whole different level.

    Cons:
    - Stating the obvious - licenses. I get now you can have it all added in, but it really doesn't feel the same. Especially with the majority of stadiums missing.
    - Become A Legend is just boring after a few months, no real indepth into it.
    - Master League's unrealistic transfers, seems both PES and FIFA struggle with this.
    - Commentary is unbelievably repetitive after a few games. Without licenses, it's tough for them to actually talk about the club, so you'll begin to hear the same stuff very quickly. And trust me, it does get annoying.
    - WHERE IS THE CARABAO CUP?! Even when FIFA didn't have that license they still had the League Cup in the game.
    - Another state of the obvious - lost the UEFA licenses.
    - Menus still feel old, and sound old.
    - (Opinion) there's not much music choice, and most of the songs are average at best.

    I compare PES to FIFA a lot because I'm a die hard FIFA fan and I have been since I was 5 years old playing FIFA 98. PES plays wonderful, it really does. But without the licenses and below average commentary makes it more difficult to play. Don't get me wrong, gameplay is above perfect, I really do enjoy the games but everything outside of that lacks creativity.

    This rating is for offline play. The AI is broken and utilizes the same tactic no matter who you play. The new and "improved" transfer systemThis rating is for offline play. The AI is broken and utilizes the same tactic no matter who you play. The new and "improved" transfer system is broken as the AI is selling players left & right. Some times leaving teams with 4 goalies as subs???? The salary system is also broken when starting with the defualt master league players.

    They took away two second tier divisions which fans already modded and replaced them with "licensed" leagues. Those licensed leagues doesnt even have comentary,add-boards, scoreboards etc. They are simply overlays.
