Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 (officially abbreviated as PES 2017) is a soccer game published by Konami. The game is the 16th installment in the Pro Evolution Soccer series and was released in September 2016.
New features to PES 2017 include improved passing, Real Touch ball control, and improved goal tending technique. As normal, Pro Evo does not have full licensing and notably still does not have official English Premier League team names or kits.
PES 2017 was positively reviewed upon launch, with most critics describing the game as the best Pro Evolution Soccer game made to date.
However, be wary of the PC version which was less well received. PC Gamer gave a lukewarm 71 verdict considering PES 2017 “another inter-generational hybrid that looks more like the Xbox 360 than the Xbox One game. The review concludes “A very good football game, but why are we being fobbed off with a console-light experience?”.
