Looks decent but I need to see some gameplay on higher difficulty settings.

Also, more impressions from other sites.

Defending still looks hideous im sorry.
Just watch the guy go by.
Dont see much difference in any of those vids other than the incredible likeness of players that tells me they improved refs or the lack of urgency in defending.

Dont tell me lower difficulty either it hasnt got any better at higher difficultys either in prior versions so why should i expect this to be different.

Demo will have to show me otherwise if they want my money.

Looks really good. I assume these games are on lowered difficulty levels. I hope that they release a demo soon.

The strategy options are truly impressive. It seems like you can really sink your teeth into deep soccer strategy. Plus, some of the reviews are about adaptive AI and player ID also make the game appear like a true tour de force. Definitely looking forward to PES 2017.

Looks decent. I enjoyed PES 2016 quite a bit, but the animations are still a little weird.

Why oh why didn't they fix the parachute pants shorts?

As per previous installments the night time light / textures / shadows look horrendous. It's almost as if I am watching a PS2 game.
Also, the bug where the defender accelerates at twice the pace of the attacker is back.
Day time looks much better, but overall there is absolutely nothing impressive.

Is there anything to play for? Like unlockables? I am talking about retro kits, balls, celebrations. Like FIFA. I want my exhibition games to be meaningful as well..

Also curious about any new weather options, like snow and haze..

Will the PC version look like this?

No, already been confirmed.

Some videos look better than others so I'll hold judgement on how it looks until I see it for myself in person. Just listened to an interview where Adam Bhatti said they have more premium partnerships to announce. I wonder which teams they are and if this means more bad news for FIFA 17.

Got this from evo, did not see it in the OP - if so, my apologies. Will have a video review on these P1 v CPU videos as they come in.



My initial impressions :

I'll have some video impressions, but based on that P1 v CPU video, I'd give it a 7/10.

+ Flow of the match is back to a mix of compressed and decompresses (expands) nicely.

+ Proper width of pitch is matched by the close down speed of players due to their positioning.

+ Ball Physics look quite good, floats in the air much nicer.

+ Save animations are very nice.

+ Defensive covering is not locked into their position (i.e. a CB will go and cover the RB/LB if needed).

+ Proper step up to meet the attackers (unlike).

+ Not as chaotic off the ball.

- I'm still seeing the sprint back and forth off the ball by defenders and midfielders. Several times the outside midfielder, or back, would allow their teammate to overlap by simply sprinting back to their designated spot. Does not look natural, but I understand the intent.

- Shots are all on target by the CPU. I know these are higher quality teams, and CPU was on Superstar, so take that with a grain of salt.

- Loose balls in the air still don't feel "loose", it looks like it is still on a rope to a destined force field of P1 or CPU. This is evident by corner clearances that drop their way to an attacker, much like all of PES and FIFA though - for a number of years actually.

- Deflections off of tackles only go about 1 foot away. IRL, deflections or tackles will allow the ball to sputter off into become a 50/50 ball. I did not see many of these types of occurrences, and that does continue to concern me with the Fox engine. The reason it does is because the harp right now is on First Touch control, well if you have a terrible first touch control, that ball should be sputtering several feet away, or even slipping under your foot, right? If you take the same low rating at First Touch, and pair that up with 50/50 tackle, there needs to be some "force" within those tackles - not just a simple control of the ball as a result - which is what I saw the majority of.

- Lastly is the forward passing. The passing seems to be very forward-forward-forward, that's the build up I saw. It was not much side to side, and when it did go to the side, it goes forward. I'll have to take some more time to look at the movement off the ball, but it looks very direct. While we love PES 4-6, those games were also very forward and direct, so if that was the goal - it's been accomplished, but I do hope there is some more proper build up, and less frantic play to score a goal as quick as possible.

This game is looking amazing. Refs, graphics, player movement, GKs, game speed, ball physics, celebrations all look SO MUCH better. Officially hyped!

That last video posted in comments has put me off. CPU play isn't realistic at all. Super human defending and finishing and final third far too deadly. Watch a Barca vs AM game and then watch that vid. Nothing to do with which team is on top just nothing like real football. I'm not saying FIFA is... Just surprised how it looks after reading so many positive comments.

I'll end up getting it but I'm not seeing any progress from last year in that video. CPU AI is same as always either terrible or completely deadly....

Real football isn't like that... I know that Lower ability teams will still only need one chance to score on hard settings and that isn't realistic at all.

I am seeing too many shots on target, at least the goalkeepers are good but I can see many high score lines.

I will have to humbly disagree with this. From the videos they posted they made a lot of progress just in team defending, refs, goalkeepers, and ball physics alone and they got rid of that horrid hopping animation when a player goes in for a tackle. I know a lot of people enjoyed PES 2016 but that game was unplayable for me, this looks like I can possibly get back to playing PES. One thing I am curious about is tactics, I hope they vary the gameplay enough.

I'm not really impressed with what I've seen so far. But I'll most likely end up buying it anyways, like every year.
 
# 15 dubcity @ 08/04/16 02:50 PM
Watched the day Barca/Atletico match. Colors look amazing.
Movement looks tight and fidgety, especially when transitioning from dribbling to a short pass. Like they want us to be able to pass or move in any direction in any situation instantly (not realistic), but didn't bother filling in the blanks with a full animation.

Can already tell the goalie issue hasnt been fully addressed.
 
# 17 bigeastbumrush @ 08/04/16 05:03 PM
Watched a user vs user video and I honestly thought it looked great.

The running animations are a little stiff but I liked what I saw overall. Graphically it looks nice.

I never bought PES but something really stuck out to me after last year's demo causing me not to buy it. I can't remember. Sliders perhaps? Fouls?

Yeah I watched a few User vs. User videos on TTB channel and it looked better than a lot of these videos posted. Of course I still have tempered expectations but like most of us won't be able to probably judge it once the demo releases.

Very disappointed in how cheesy and arcade PES looks, it was supposed to be an alternative to FIFA. Will try the demo, but my interest in PES is fading fast.

We look it as FIFA gameplay vs PES gameplay, but Konami and EA look at it as UT vs MyClub. That's where they are making their money.
