Have your say


This game owned the footballing roost through the early noughties – and it has probably just regained its crown.

It still lacks the overall gloss of FIFA (presentation and commentary for example), but with genuine advancements – giving it a notably enhanced feel – Konami has almost had to start from scratch to give PES the kiss of life after years of hitting a brick wall.

And this has led to a dynamic, fluid and truly responsive game that has again built on 2014’s solid foundations.

For Konami their twentieth anniversary of the franchise could be their best yet.

Rating: 5/5
