    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.

    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 enjoy the FIFAeFootball PES 2020 gives great football play, however at the moment, there are many problems that need to be resolved. I enjoy the FIFA franchise also, however the overall PES feel is more like a real football game when everything is working on par than FIFA does. First the positives, yes all the usual PES goodness in terms of realistic build up play, realistic pace and the improved dribbling and touch skills are all there. It feels like football, no question, when it's playing as it should. However the negatives counter this: Online matchmaking takes forever, if you can find a match at all. Lag: Online matches are riddled with shocking lag, stutters can last over a second and the game has moved on. I stopped playing online football games in the past because of this same issue issue, I surely hope it's not back to stay. Online match balancing is awful as a result, my first match was against a team with all high level black ball players. My second online game was more fairly matched as 2018/19 squads, it has to be mentioned despite promises of an update soon. The squads are way out of date, a few recent transfers I could forgive but to release like this is shocking. Out of date squads prevent me from wanting to start the career elements as I want to at least start against the up to date squads. I the many problems can be resolved quickly this will be the go-to football game on my Xbox One. Expand

    Horrible scripting in Master League. AI scores practically every shot.
    Dont buy this piece of sh*t!!!
