Konami has knocked it out of the park once again with PES 2017, producing one of the greatest games of football ever made, complete with improved visuals, mechanics and game modes. If you're after a football sim in 2016, you can't get much better than this.
The impressive Fox Engine makes a welcome return, bringing an incredible sense of realism to the environments your virtual players sprint about in. The tactics they deploy have also been enhanced, making passing, shooting and planning your next strategy far more rewarding than ever before.
Unfortunately, the online issues that plagued PES 2016 are here to stay, making it difficult to enjoy a series of matches with other PES fanatics without coming across irritating moments of lag. Offline, however, PES 2017 is in another league.
