See how different players control the ball in unique and different ways based on where and how you control them, dictating the flow of the game based on how they react to the unpredictable movement of the ball. In addition, there is more control in how you receive passes, and depending on the pass, players can visually execute the exact play intended, from receiving a pass to sending the ball out again.

    With smarter AI opposition and an altogether smoother online experience, PES 2017 is close to the complete package. FIFA’s new story mode might be the most headline-grabbing feature of either game this year, but it’s clear Konami is in no mood to relinquish its title as king of the virtual pitch.

    PES 2017 greatly improves gameplay, tactics and match simulation and variety resulting in an unrivaled on the field play experience. It's still got to get rid of some old habits mainly in the licenses and player behaviour reproduction, but it's undoubtedly shining anew.

    PES 2017 is in many way the game that PES 2016 should have been. It shares the same deep mechanics, but the AI – especially the goalies – is so much better. PES 2017 may be a let down for those who want as many licenses as possible, for everyone else this is one of the best soccer games ever.

    An undeniable improvement over last year's iteration, PES 2017 looks and feels amazing, but the ever-growing licensing problem is reaching a point in which it disrupts immersion and some gameplay elements such as transfers an auction tools in myClub. On top of that, there's little innovation when it comes to game modes and the online front remains uninspired and stale.

    A solid title that is as entertaining as it is satisfying to play.

    Fans of the series will feel rewarded for playing this years incarnation and the addition of an official, competitive league is a positive step towards the ever increasing eSports future we live in. It's fun to play, and it's so slick you'd fall over if you stepped on it...But the overall experience is still lacking, and that's down to licensing.

    'Gameplay is too robotic and arcade-like'? Nonsense. Totally the opposite. I've only played the demo of Fifa 17 which I did enjoy'Gameplay is too robotic and arcade-like'? Nonsense. Totally the opposite. I've only played the demo of Fifa 17 which I did enjoy (particularly The Journey) but the difference in gameplay is like night and day. This is buttery smooth compared to Fifa. The animations, the collisions, the amount of different ways to finish - all superior. The presentation will never be able to compete with Fifa with all their official licences and their Sķy Sports match day atmosphere but where it counts, on the pitch, is head and shoulders above. Maybe the full release of Fifa 17 will be a lot better but as it stands PES 2017 is so far in my opinion the best football game ever. I'm not against Fifa either as I'll buy that game too as I have done since Fifa '99 as I'm footie mad but last year Pro Evo took over the reins from Fifa for the first time since Pro Evolution Soccer 6 in 2006. This year the gap could be widening significantly. Expand
