Like with all recent editions of PES, a wealth of gameplay options await, with updates to modes such as Become A Legend, Master League, and MyClub (the latter was inaccessible during review due to the servers being down). Master League has been given a brilliant Football Manager-aping redesign, with a calendar view and news items all displayed on its home screen. Yet there's little worth in assessing soccer sims by the weight of their game modes, or indeed, the breadth of their official licences. All that truly matters is what unfolds in those virtual ninety minutes, either against a friend, an online stranger, or the computer. On that test alone, PES 2016 represents the best game in the series since the PlayStation 2 era.
PES 2016 lives up to the hype and is a wonderful tribute to 20 years of hard work from Konami and PES Productions.
PES 2016 is undoubtedly a great football game, as good as it’s been in years. Sure, it’s better on the pitch than PES 2015, but it’s let down somewhat by some cavalier keepers who couldn’t catch a cold.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 is a big step forward for the series and manages to show the complexity and the beauty of football while also emphasizing the hard work that's required from a team looking to put together a string of victories. There's a lot of room for improvement when it comes to presentation and some graphics, but I had fun in almost all the matches I played, even those that I lost, after I learned to stop thinking about how fouls are judged. Konami will probably soon deliver a content update to tweak the referees and to revise some of the outdated initial line-ups for major teams, and when that happens, Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 will offer a very solid game for football lovers who want to focus more on the organic elements of the sport rather than its spectacle.
Fortunately, the series is growing and it appears it won't be going anywhere anytime soon. For Pro Evolution Soccer, its 20th anniversary brings in 2016 with a bang. The improvements and expanded gameplay comes as a bit of a surprise. Konami is showing that their push to the top of football greatness is fully in effect. It is safe to say PES 2016 is one of the best sports releases to the genre in recent years.
While not for everyone, PES 2016 is actually a very well done game. I learned a good amount, but am by no means an expert. I was able to get a good feel for the game and was able handle some matches on the easier difficulty. This is still very much a soccer fan’s game, and while it has the tutorials, the game is not very beginner-friendly. At the same time, what it does, it does very well and looks great while doing it. Any fan of the sport should definitely check it out.
Für ein Sportspiel im Jahr 2015 ist die Regie in der Karriere immer noch ein steriler Witz - man wird nicht zur Legende, sondern erlebt nur Langeweile. Schade auch, dass man im Training nur Altbekanntes auffrischt, aber immer noch nicht gezielt alle Dribblings, Finten & Co üben kann, die doch für so wunderbare Momente sorgen können. Ich freue mich über die endlich modernisierte Meisterliga mit ihrer neuen Dynamik, aber die bleibt leider offline und zeigt Widersprüche in der Regie. Der auf Sammelreize und Mikrotransaktionen setzende myClub-Modus kann mich auch dieses Jahr dagegen nur langweilen. (...) Aber dieses Jahr hat Konami endlich den Online-Service samt Netzcode so im Griff, dass man Ranglistenspiele ohne Probleme austragen kann. Was die reine Spielmechanik betrifft, hat PES 2016 starke Fortschritte gemacht, so dass eine gute Wertung für PS4 rauspringt - die Xbox One hinkt leider technisch etwas hinterher.
