    eFootball PES 2020 generally offers a better evolution with respect to the last release. Konami's game has been perfectly adapted and today it is as interesting an option as FIFA.

    It comes as no-surprise that eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 fits into the category of an exceptional football simulator. Superb graphical realism, and tantalising gameplay, create an experience that fans of the beautiful game should absolutely play. Konami really needs to find a way to license the Premier League and La Liga to start tempting those away from FIFA, especially those who are really bothered about licenced content.

    eFootball PES 2020 is definitely the best episode in the series since several years, bringing many improvements making it more modern but without losing its tactical gameplay. It still needs to improve in licences and AI, but it's surely a suggested buy for soccer lovers.

    With no much content to grind on, eFootball PES 2020 has a big flaw but its demanding gameplay will satisfy every hardcore soccer fans, looking for a game they can play with other people of their kind.

    Konami’s gradual return to form takes another welcome stride forwards. [Issue#183, p.85]

    eFootball PES 2020 is a brilliant game offline that delivers plenty to do and exciting gameplay to be enjoyed. If it’s to be judged solely on playing against the A.I. and friends locally, PES 2020 on Xbox One is a must have. Sadly for Konami, the online side presents a slight dip in quality and the constant waiting to find a match is a pain, especially for the new Matchday mode.

    eFootball PES 2020 is a new step forward for Konami. Gameplay is still fun, but there are very few novelties in everything else.

    A fantastic game worth trying!

    1. This is the first football game I’ve played and enjoyed, in this decade. This game is made for everyone!
    2. PES 2020 is an enjoyable, simulation sort of game in respect to handling players’ movements while playing the same. The controls and player movements are near to reality.
    3. Planning strategies and tactics, positioning players and other in-game options are good for preparing before starting the matches.
    4. Cut-scene visuals and replays are enjoyable and fun to watch.
    5. Recently, though I’ve had an opportunity to play other newly released football games for a brief time period, I would recommend ‘PES 2020’ because of its almost realistic game-play physics and in-game arrangements... This is a personal choice.
    6. Practice mode is great! In ‘skill training’, you are taught kick styles, tactics, etc. In ‘free training’, you can practice however you want to.
    7. Whether online, co-op or solo, playing PES 2020 is a great experience. 
    8. PES 2020 is truly an entertaining game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The gameplay is always stunning every year for Pes games. This game just need PRESENTATIONS and OPTION File to import kits and badges for Xbox One. And I think this can boost the sales on Xbox One. Expand

    Best gameplay ever. Enough said. EA can shove the licenses up their ass. KONAMI sorted out most of the issues with last year's game

I'm all for realism, but when nearly every pass you make goes straight to the opposition team and your hitting the post or bar 8 times in a game it just becomes tiresome. It's not realistic, it's just boring. It always happens right after you start the game as well, same as Fifa. It's a real shame they have adopted this way of playing as the game can be a joy to play sometimes. The movement of the ball and the player physics are incredible, and the way you can score goals is so diverse.
    When you know theres no way to score and win certain games tho, what's the point ?

    Começando queria destacar: Sempre preferi PES/WE a Fifa.

    Mas esse (PES 2020) apesar do apelo positivo e do bom recebimento da crítica, para mim foi uma decepção por vários motivos.

    Primeiro e um dos mais notórios é a falta de inovação nas opções e modos de jogo. PES simplesmente não evolui, onde temos:
    - O Rumo ao Estrelato é o mesmo desde tempos. Percebemos até uma diminuição nas opções.
    - Master League só colocaram umas cenas para começar e contratar mas o jogo em si é igual. As transferências aqui são ridículas e com poucas opções. A Konami prometeu mudanças, mas foram insignificantes.
    - Myclub é exatamente o mesmo do ano passado e sabemos que lá para Julho/Agosto vão parar de ter atualizações e empresários. Ou seja, o jogo não dura nem um ano no modo online.
    - O restante é mais do mesmo. Amistoso, partida aleatória. Um modo novo (Match day) não consegui jogar.

    O segundo ponto que me deixou decepcionado foi a jogabilidade. Com certeza mudaram e há alguns pontos bons sim, mas tem MUITOS BUGS. Está exagerado dessa vez. Até esperei para comentar pois achei que teria atualização. Mas sabemos que oficialmente ficará só para o mês que vem. Então temos:
    - Sistema de colisão está esquisito e jogadores não conseguem dominar a bola.
    - IA do próprio time é muito esquisita.
    - Troca do cursor que não troca as vezes para o jogador mais perto da bola.
    - Passe dado para um companheiro perto mas quem é acionado é o cara do outro lado do campo.
    - Juiz tá trocando falta, inventando ou parando jogada com vantagem (algumas claras de gol).

    Depois de mais de 10 dias jogando não me adaptei. Prefiro o 2019 sem dúvidas.
    - Cruzamentos e 'enfiadas' de bola sem noção alguma.
    - Velocidade do jogo esquisita

    complete disaster! the demo version was promising, the final version is the same crap of recent years... I wasted my money! The collisioncomplete disaster! the demo version was promising, the final version is the same crap of recent years... I wasted my money! The collision system and fouls are totally broken, the game is a mess, artificial intelligence is terrible, there are no sliders for offline mode... Conclusion: I bought FIFA 20 and now I'm happy again. I've played PES for 20 years, never again! Buy FIFA and be happy (or at least less unhappy). Expand
