    Konami perhaps missed a beat and could have been a tad bit more generous by making this an even more budget-priced game than what it is being sold for to capture any FIFA players who are on the fence, but it is still worth the price of admission. If fluid, tactical and sublime football is what you are looking for then look no further than eFootball PES 2021 Season Update.

    PES 2021 retains the same qualities and defects as its predecessor while waiting for the new generation of consoles.

    Releasing eFootball PES 2021 Season Update is a good idea. But there ain't any reasons to justify its purchase. At least, it is worth it if you are a fervent follower of the saga and play online.

    Aside from a handful of updates, PES 2021 is ultimately the same as last year's game. So if you already have it, it's not worth the upgrade. But this release asks an important question of us, as gamers and as consumers: are we prepared to tide ourselves over on off-years with packages like this while developers strive for bigger innovations between major releases? Even in normal life, and without new console hardware on the horizon? It certainly seems a more honest business practice to clearly delineate season updates from true new main releases. Ultimately, an evaluation of - deep breath - eFootball PES 2021 Season Update is a review of the IP's business model as much as the football itself. And for the promise of greater leaps forward to come, I’m cautiously in favour.

    eFootball PES 2021 Season Update on Xbox One should be overlooked by those who own PES 2020 because it’s not worth the hassle of starting all over again for a selection of kits and partially updated squads. On the other hand, the gameplay and the modes combined with the updates makes it slightly more alluring to newcomers who haven’t experienced any of it. Even then it’s not a must-have and you may be best picking up PES 2020 on the cheap.

    eFootball PES 2021 Season Update reissues the same, excellent game of last year with updated players and licenses. Seen the budget price, it's recommended to soccer lovers that didn't play the previous game, while it's hard to suggest it to fans who spent tens or thousands of hours on PES 2020.

You aren't paying full price for a pretend full release, which is such a welcome change of pace. This game is half the price of a regular retail release as Konami waits for the next generation of consoles to launch and I welcome both the honesty and the savings. Expand

PES 2021 is doing things differently and basically a very different but ultimate he'd to head competition with FIFA year over year. You'll get bonuses if you played PES 2020 and the game is back again in similar fashion to last year, I usually personally enjoy the PES series over FIFA but they are both very different experiences. Most of the sports games are just updated player roasters and keeping the core of the game engine the same maybe some feature changes and some extra style to sauce it up for the new year. Konami has implemented a number of familiar modes into PES 2021 such as Master League MyClub and Matchday alongside other traditional ones you’ll recognise from previous entries. With the next-gen version poised to overhaul Pro Evolution Soccer with the 9th console generation upon us, we will likely be waiting until then for some truly innovative new additions to the already great franchise. I need to say that sadly there's not much in new game-play mechanics on PES 2021 over PES 2020 which is actually not all bad as last years installment was excellent. There's fine line to keeping the core fan base happy, bringing new players into the fold, and adding new features and improvements without fixing something that didn't need fixed. Looking forward to seeing PES make it's debut on the Series X as Konami is well known for the quality of their studios titles and weather your a FIFA fan or a PES fan in the end you can't go wrong and I still recommend PES 2021 despite not being revolutionary over last years installment on the Xbox One.
