PES 2017

PES 2017 :::

Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 (officially abbreviated as PES 2017, also known in some Asian countries as Winning Eleven 2017) is a sports video game developed by PES Productions and published by Konami for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android and iOS. The game is the 16th installment in the Pro Evolution Soccer series. It was released in September 2016 and is compatible with PS4 Pro console.[1]

The game was positively reviewed upon launch, with critics describing the game as one of the best Pro Evolution Soccer games to date, and a refinement of its predecessor, Pro Evolution Soccer 2016. PES 2017 was succeeded by Pro Evolution Soccer 2018.

PES 2017 features adaptive artificial intelligence (AI), which makes the AI adapt to gameplay styles of each player. This allows the game to automatically change AI's tactics and strategic plans, according to the player's strategic preference and performance in matches.

PES 2017 is the first game in the series that features Konami's new partnership with FC Barcelona. Premier League teams Arsenal F.C. and Liverpool are licensed, while Liverpool even entered into official partnership with Konami. However, PES 2017 no longer has some big teams that were licensed in PES 2016, most notably Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Juventus and Porto.

On 26 July 2016, Konami Digital Entertainment Co. Ltd. announced an official partnership with FC Barcelona that would be effective across their titles for 3 years saying "The FCB signature style Tiki-Taka, the powerful "hymno", the Barcelona classic kit data release, and Legend player appearances are some of the things Konami are planning to bring into the game to provide the best experience to the fans. Customers are entitled to sign a Barcelona player who can be used in the widely popular PES mode myClub by pre-ordering the digital download version of PES 2017 through the PlayStationStore."[8] Exclusive use of the Camp Nou is reserved to the Pro Evolution Soccer titles for the duration of the licence.

On 16 August 2016, Konami Digital Entertainment Co. Ltd. announced an official partnership with Liverpool F.C. Through the agreement PES 2017 includes content such as recreation of the official kit, player faces and Liverpool's home ground Anfield among other content. Konami announced the deal also stating that "This title's core concept "Control Reality", makes it possible to reproduce Liverpool's compact and speedy game flow. With the new function "Advanced Instruction", Liverpool's playing style of multiple players to retrieve the ball from a high position, "Gegenpress", adopted by manager Jürgen Klopp, is reproduced within the game. The most notable difference to this licence however is that unlike the Barcelona deal, the Anfield stadium will not be exclusive to the Pro Evolution Soccer series.

On 17 August 2016, at the annual gaming expo Gamescom, it was announced that Konami Digital Entertainment Co. Ltd. had agreed a 3rd premium partnership, this time with Borussia Dortmund. An official announcement stated that "Through this agreement, PES 2017 [...] will include the downloadable data of the team's home stadium "Signal Iduna Park". These new implementations will richen to fully experience "BV Borussia 09 Dortmund"."

An announcement of an exclusive partnership with the Brazilian Football Confederation was made on 29 August 2016. Through this agreement, players of the PES 2017 game will have exclusive access to the domestic league of Brazil. This will also enable PES 2017 to have all 20 teams of the Brazilian league fully licensed.[9]

In a hat-trick of announcements, Konami Digital Entertainment Co. Ltd. revealed exclusive licences with three of Brazil's top teams. Statements from the website indicated that "Through this agreement, PES 2017 [...] will include the club's traditional red and black bordered kit and the team's home stadium "Estádio do Maracanã". These new implementations will help enrich the experience of playing with CR Flamengo." for the CR Flamengo. Of the SC Corinithians deal, Konami stated "Corinthians is a renowned Brazilian soccer club founded in 1910. It has been champion of Brazil's domestic league Campeonato Brasileiro six times, and has won many other domestic and international titles.Through this agreement, PES 2017 [...] will include the club's kit and its home stadium "Arena Corinthians". Many other measures are planned to enrich the experience of "Corinthians", so please enjoy the authentic feel of the gameplay, just like the club's high abilities." As for the third partnership agreement with Red Bull Brasil, Konami revealed "Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. proudly announces that it has signed an Exclusive Partnership contract with the Brazilian soccer club, Red Bull Brasil.Red Bull Brasil was founded in 2007, starting in the fourth level of Campeonato Paulista, a soccer league in São Paulo. The club has made its way up in just nine years, and now plays in the top league. The club is attracting the attention of many soccer fans in Brazil, and is rapidly increasing the number of fans."

Peter Drury and Jim Beglin provide English commentary. PES 2017 includes a new technical innovation in the form of audio concatenation, the process by which individual units are linked to create a fluid, more natural sounding commentary.[10] Milton Leite and Mauro Beting will provide Brazilian Portuguese commentary. Jon Kabira and Tsuyoshi Kitazawa remain as commentators for the Japanese version. Cantonese and Mandarin commentary is added for the first time in this game. Vince Ka Him Ng and Keyman Ma provide Cantonese commentary, while Wang Tao and Miao Kun cover Mandarin commentary.Fernando Niembro and Mariano Closs cover Argentine Spanish commentary.[11]

Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 received positive reviews from critics. The aggregator site Metacritic gave a score of 85/100 for the PlayStation 4 based on 62 reviews and 87/100 for the Xbox One based on 12 reviews.[12][13] The PC version of the game has received mixed reviews from reviewers, with a score of 69/100 on Metacritic.[14]

GamesRadar scored PES 2017 with a positive 4.5/5, stating that it "looks and feels like the real thing" and also go on to mention that this title restores Konami's series back to its former glory.[19]

Digital Spy's reviewer Sam Loveridge rates PES 2017 at 4.5/5, saying that the game's realism has really been ramped up, but also pointing out that there are hardly new features to the game when compared to its predecessor.[22]

The PES 2017 database on PES Master - so far - includes more than 400 teams around 13,000 players. All PES 2017 attributes and positions are accurate, while Overall ratings can differ from the actual ingame values. Playing styles and cards are not yet included.

While PES 2017 has a slight edge in gameplay, and that's obviously the most important category, FIFA 17 is far from unplayable. In fact, you could argue it's more fun despite some of the more technical shortcomings.

The biggest change in PES 2017 with respect to its predecessors, is a feature called Control Reality. Control Reality is the ostentatious name for the new control system which allows you to better manage the footballers (whether they have the ball or not). This new implementation strengthens Pro Evolution Soccer as an excellent football simulator and leaves FIFA to take the crown for showmanship.

In 2017 it's Konami who blinks first as Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 releases a few weeks ahead of EA's yearly update. But it's probably not going to be enough, at least this year, to tempt away the FIFA crowd.

One thing that PES has long been revered for is its realism. Compared to FIFA, PES has always felt more natural, closer to the real thing despite lacking in some of the shiny graphics and razzle dazzle licensing. PES 2017 follows exactly this tradition. The gameplay is sublime.

It's this kind of attention to detail that elevates PES 2017s gameplay to the top of the pile. While FIFA 17 is yet to launch, having played it at Gamescom I'm fairly convinced that PES 2017 has the edge. Movements are so fluid and natural feeling, the pace of the game is more akin to a real match and the ball movement at times looks fresh off a highlight reel.

PES 2017 is easy to pick up and play, but difficult to master. There is a learning curve, especially if you're a first timer to the series, but being able to customize the controls helps get over that. The adaptive AI that analyses the play to decide how best to counter adds a distinct challenge. You have to work to break down the defense in Pro Evo. And doing so is immensely rewarding.

It's hard to fault the gameplay in PES 2017. It builds upon everything that has made it so popular over the many years of its existence. It's a fluid, genuine experience that rewards its players in the best way it can; by making you feel like you're playing the real thing.

There are plenty of realistic bits in PES 2017, though. Many of the players resemble and act like their real-life counterparts. It's like Wayne Rooney really is looking back at you. This is at least a bonus, gone are the days that players names would be misspelled to get around licensing issues.

Konami has also upped the ante a little in online play. New for PES 2017 is an official online league that lets the competitive, eSports type players face off against each other with the grand prize being a chance to play in the grand final in Cardiff ahead of the 2017 Champions League final.

So, a conclusion. PES 2017 is very good, that isn't in question. Fans of the series will feel rewarded for playing this years incarnation and the addition of an official, competitive league is a positive step towards the ever increasing eSports future we live in. It's fun to play, and it's so slick you'd fall over if you stepped on it. 59ce067264
