Initial impressions:

- Attackers now seem to have way more of an edge over defenders; defenders can often have the ball stolen from them... maybe a bit too often?


I haven't put too much time into this (played less than 10 games) but this is my biggest annoyance with the game currently. I'm not sure if they've changed the defence system and I haven't caught up yet but it seems much harder as a defender to win the ball from an attacker, attackers seem to be able to shield the ball and shrug players off far too easily.

Yeah, Sawyer, it does feel like attackers win the ball off defenders too easily. I'd imagine that this would appear in the feedback to Konami and, hopefully, be ironed out for release.

I'd been kidding myself that I may take a break from PES this year. Even though that probably wasn't going to happen anyway, the demo has reinvigorated my appetite and I'm now pretty excited about the launch on Tuesday. The new season starts here!

Preload is up and downloaded. Waiting in anticipation. I can see some are already playing this - I wanted it digitally, so am happy to wait a few more hours. Absolutely love the demo, especially how it looks and the beauty in the slower, more considered gameplay. I am hoping the Fifa 20 demo doesn't pull off any surprises this week and think it will be Pro Evo only this year for me. Looking forward to some online games this year, but will spend time on Master League too.

It's odd considering how much time I've put into PES over the years, but I've never played the Master League mode. Since I "returned" to PES around 2010 I've exclusively played Online Divisions. Maybe I'll try out Master this time!

It's funny, I never play online any more. I used to play with GRcade user 8raz in co-op all the time, but he's retired from games now. I just play casual exhibition matches, but I'm thinking of playing Master League this year.

I used to love master league of the old pro evo titles, but haven't really spent time on more recent releases. Instead, I spent more time on Fifa's online mode, which is far superior, although I hope this latest release has a better online mode.

Downloaded the demo of this last night, might check it out in a bit. I'm not planning on getting a football game again this year (still chugging along with FIFA18 when the mood takes me) but am still interested to see how PES is doing this time round. Plus it'll no doubt get a decent price cut once FIFA 20 hits :shifty:

Is it just me, or do all games these days have review embargoes up to release time, instead of a day or two before. :|

Yeah, unfortunately the gaming market is so huge now - and pre-order culture so ingrained - that publishers often don't allow reviews to appear until launch. A bit frustrating, really, but at least we can vote with our wallets.

I pre-ordered this :fp: :lol: .

Had a quick game - they’ve messed up the games speed settings and it feels too arcadey now!

It’s not, it’s the same as last year.

I wish the servers would go online so I can get the up to date squads and start Master League. Had the game since Saturday and the keepers are super humans! They can get to any shot. I’ve only managed to score close range efforts so far.

Gamesradar aren't posting their review until the 12th. Surely that's not the embargo date?
