Played the demo this week from steam and with great trepidation given how the series has declined from a high point with PES6. Hugely surprised by the return to form of the game. Great fun and a more realistic portrayal of the real life sport at last at a speed which allows the midfield and build up play to be utilized. The graphics are excellent as are the stadiums that they have under license. Atmosphere could be improved but if you are on a powerful desktop then everything can be modded including adding Vicarage Road to the stadiums through Juce's modules. Games wildly vary in outcomes but individual players stand out although team ID still needs work. A lot of the randomness of football is captured and it's physicality and the AI is on a different level compared to the feeble efforts of recent years where the CPU attacks were eminently predictable. And at long last player attributes make a difference once again in passing and shooting accuracy for example and stamina does count. So no endless gegen pressing. However no doubt over time people will spam the game online to exploit weaknesses in the mechanics just in order to win. Master League has been reworked although not to a level it should have been but an improvement over recent years.
