Improved negotiation system and budget management. Added a re-sell and clean sheet options, so that strategy is needed not only on the field, but also with club management. Enjoy playing the newly added licensed leagues in Master League.
All league regulations have been implemented, such as the Split System from the Scottish Premiership.
It's been a long time since I had so much fun playing PES.
On the pitch, no one gets the better of PES 2019, apart from that there is still a lot to do and we are still waiting for online modes.
You shouldn’t buy PES 2019 for its new modes - there aren’t any of note. Nor should you buy it for major changes to existing modes - the ones made are minor. If you do opt in this year, it should be for the focus on player individuality that sets this iteration apart from all previous years.
Smooth gameplay, a variety of animations, and interesting game modes take the sting off of the lack of licensed teams. FIFA may wear the crown, but PES is a worthy rival.
It's difficult to sing the praises of the core gameplay as much as last year. That's especially the case as the AI isn't as sensible as it was previously, with too many reckless challenges and questionable keeper decisions. PES 2019 underperforms, despite its quality.
A mostly fun, realistic football sim with wonky AI.
