No player updates. Konami has completely dropped the ball with this license. Next time, let the professionals, (EA) handle it.

Would you rather them spend all their time updating this game or focus on making all the fixes to make next year's great? As long as they get all the kits right at this point, that's all is needed.

The professionals at unrealistic repetitive gameplay.

So disappointing to see Konami's effort and EA not caring a bit to loose the EURO's or have the Copa America in game.

It's not about what I want, it's about Konami doing their jobs. You do understand that some people actually paid for the stand alone edition just to play this game mode. If they couldn't handle the license, why acquire it in the first place.

I don't understand how people can be OK with squads out of date and poor use of license and claim that gameplay is good or realistic.

I like this game. A lot. I like FIFA too.

I've grown up both playing football and watching football live and on TV... I feel I can say that this game is far from a beacon of game playing excellence.

I'd even give FIFA the edge.

The license is misused for the euros massively

You could say the same thing about PES man, let's be honest. Every game I ever play on PES comes down to whoever gets the last ridiculously well placed finesse shot into the corner, which the GK will inevitably fail to reach. It's a goal fest, plain and simple, and very few of them are rewarding because you see one every 2 minutes of real time.

I know I'm beating a dead horse here, but people kill me with all this PES hype, completely ignoring the many HUGE flaws in the game. "Every game in PES feels different" eh? I laugh every time I hear that claim.

No, in PES teams actually play like their real-life counterparts or closer to it. No matter what teams you are playing in FIFA it's like an instant replay.

Is Luke Shaw still in England squad after breaking his leg early season. Why is it too difficult for Konami to update the offline squads regularly. 😞

Exactly! They're just kits, next year's game is what matters.

It's just not a priority, never mind that their outdated method for offline roster storage requires a data pack update each time. And that won't change with PES 2017, because the mobile game model is their goal.

No, they don't. They all pass the ball around surgically, then eventually someone is in space (because the defense is practically non-existent) and they aim low and for the corners, over and over and over again, because the keepers are atrocious.

I also find it hard to fathom how PES is "more realistic" when there are no fouls, no cards, and 10 goals a game. But hey, to each his own. I'll be hoping PES is awesome next year just like you, I just found it to be largely overhyped this year considering its plethora of gamebreaking flaws and Konami's embarrassing support post-launch.

Ever since the previous update, it's been harder to score and goalkeepers are better at saving though still lack some aggressiveness coming out the box for the ball. Besides lack of fouls, PES looks and feels like soccer, something I've yet been able to say about any FIFA, it feels like a video game. I hope you're playing on Superstar difficulty and no higher than Level 1 support. Not too brag, I'm really good and haven't had these high scoring games like I was having earlier in the year. Anyways, I think we're in for a battle this September with FIFA moving to the Frostbite engine. I haven't felt this much anticipation for a FIFA game in a long time!

If you can't tell a difference between the tactics of teams and players in PES then I don't know what to say to you. It's far from perfect, but the overall gameplay feels a lot more natural and like real soccer than FIFA.

I was quite shocked to see the squads havenít been updated, it would literally take someone at Konami an afternoon or maybe a few interns an hour each to get these squads right. Above all, have some damn pride about your work Konami, its like they made a really nice cake but couldnít be arsed to ice it.

They haven't patched the gameplay man, you're fooling yourself. I played a 10 minute game on Superstar (1 bar support) last night and lost 4-3......in 10 minutes! Maybe some people like that, but a goal every minute and a half doesn't feel like real footy to me at all, and being forced to play a 10 minute game just to keep goals in the single digits is garbage in my opinion. There's no midfield build up or mucky play, just guys streaking down the wings and getting way too much space. Don't get me wrong, I love the offensive awareness and fluidity, it's the crown jewel of PES, but the defense is no match for the offense this year, which kills the enjoyment for me. I felt like PES 2013 was the last game that felt balanced.

Maybe it's the sliders I'm using, but currently I find FIFA to be really fun and realistic, and when I score it actually feels good, because it's so much more challenging. I'd love to see more signature play styles and animations added next year, but other than that I don't have many gripes. They nerfed the headers, the defensive AI is better, and I'm not seeing the scripted goals in the 45th and 90th minutes that have ruined the game for me in the past. To each his own, I just find FIFA to be more engaging this year. That being said, I have no problem switching back to PES next year if they can fix some of these legacy issues and get the scoring down. I'm not a fanboy by any means, just call it like I see it.

Some teams may move the ball around differently, and obviously teams play with different formations, but there's not much goal variety because the CPU always wants to shoot from the same areas. I honestly can't remember the last time the CPU scored a gem on me, and they score a few goals every time I play.

I also call BS on all the teams playing the same in FIFA. If playing against Stoke feels the same as playing against Barca, you're not playing the same game I am. I have far more discrepancies in shot attempts from game to game than I do in PES, as well as a much broader goal variety. Again, I play with sliders, but since PES won't even allow you that luxury, I can't adjust that game to my liking.

Have you tried zero assistance passing? That's pretty much the only way I've gotten the game to play somewhat realistically. Plenty of 1-0 matches on Top Player for me. -1 speed helps too.

Manual makes a game a whole lot different, not sure why many are reluctant to use it. I hear about high score matches, every shot in the goal and lack of shooting variations etc. but I don't experience these kinds of things at all. I still don't understand the assisted aspect of the game and always wonder, what level of input I have if I play assisted and why would I let the computer decides for me

Well the top assistance level is so intrusive that it does more harm than good, except for people who literally just want to point the analog stick toward the opposite goal and press pass and not make any decisions (those people exist). Level 1 isn't horrible, but it makes possession too comfortable, which stretches both teams out because it inevitably leads to more aggressive play.

Only downside of manual passing is that it can highlight the AI logic errors more because every match tends to be a scrappy, pins and needles type event, and when the AI screws up it means more.
