  1. Yes you’re right I never buy these games to get into multiplayer you know why?, because it’s too damn easy. Be a pro mode is boring as hell because it’s so damn predictable and the AI does absolutely nothing with the ball. In manager mode all you have to is have the funds and any player will transfer to your club, where’s the fun in that?
    If I want to be a manager then football manager is the likely route I would take.

    Like I said once you edit the team names and league(if you can) and download the authentic team kits and emblems I don’t see what the problem is because the players and the gameplay is the core product of the game not the stadiums and the league name, it’s a video game after all it’s not like you’re actually visiting these stadiums.

    Why can’t you make transfers?

    Look guy fifa is better because it has competition, I’m a lifelong fifa player and last years title was by far the worst in every category that involves gameplay, but because it has to compete with PES they’ve made changes to this year’s game that they probably wouldn’t have otherwise. Competition is better for everyone so that’s too bad you don’t get to see the official name, emblem, and music of the champions league in fifa, use your f”’ing imagine, it is a video game after all isn’t it?

  2. You know why fifa dont even try to make big changes they make it slightly every year because they ‘re sure as hell that they are gonna kick PES’ ass easily as it does every year. because of the factors i’ve mentioned before “DIVERSITY” and yes fifa is better because it has competition,graphic quality and especially variety, Maybe only gameplay isnt as good as in pes however difference isnt like heaven and hell ! boy, i really find it hard to understand why some gamers like you get easily satisfied with only gameplay,this is quite abnormal thing. for example, you probably wouldn’t mind to play the NFS with only one raceway and car if you say that stadium and league variety are pointless things, then even demo version of PES is pretty playable for you with its one stadium and 4-5 teams, isn it? ..no graphic,no variety ,just only physics?..;)) please let me know what kind of earth are you living on?

  3. Firstly, thank you for turkish language option. But, I have no idea why Konami do not give a fuck to Turkish football teams. Fenerbahçe, Beşiktaş, Bursaspor, Başakşehir and Trabzonspor, are challeging in Europa League and also Galatasaray are in the UCL but there are no any Turkish teams in PES 2016. Such a shame… People started to buy and play Fifa 16 because of your inconsiderated attitudes. As an old pes gamer, i am waiting for a new update which is related with Turkish teams or Turkish Super Leauge as quick as possible…

  4. Where are the Turkish teams? And still no Celtics? They are in the Champions League just like Shakhtar, CSKA Moscow and Leverkusen, all big teams and not in this PES 2016 CL. That’s BS, and it’s time for the fans to have 16 Africans national teams so we can play the African cup of Nations as it is, with 16 participants just like the Asian cup, another thing, why having the Europa League license if you don’t feature teams which are not in the big leagues? This 2016 version is a shame.

  5. i have been ranting on about not having 16 African nationaal teams man ! i want to play a proper African cup but clearly Konami just dont want to use their brains they come so close to makin a really good game and then just blow it by inches by making dumb decisions

  6. again Konami… you only have 14 African national teams, why cant you just add 2 more to make a realistic tournement.. & i understand if u cant have the bundesliga but honestly i have no idea why you cant have the full list of European club teams that are participating in the uefa champions league n europa league, like Dinamo zagreb etc..

  7. Mmmm Red Star Belgrade.
    Stadium Editor.
    Being able to import faces on usb and paste them
    (take 2016 and 2013 and combine them, would an amazing game)

  8. You can Google “pes Besiktas kit template” save the image, transfer the image on a USB (create a file called WEPES) then paste to a team.

  9. Hey… The best thing about pes is you can create your own game, I create the jelen superliga in Serbia, you know why?? Cos I can, on FIFA I can’t!
    Half the reason I love pes is the edit mode, however it now lacking a bit:
    Hair and Beards are inadequate
    Tattoos for players should be uploadable
    Faces should be uploadable like pes 2013 (this was great for creating classic players)
    Crown noise should be uploadable like pes 2013
    Stadium editor should be on here and very advanced.
    Create your own boots like 2010
    Edit faces of the pre set players.
    Crowd editing
    More boots and gloves (why limit it, have 40 or 50 if them)
    … PES seems to take 4 steps forward (graphics, game play, collision simulation, edit mode) then 2 back, take away sound editing, face uploads and stadium editor.
    The way I see it, you should keep all the stuff from he previous game, and add the extras. Why take away certain elements, just keep the lot… Oh and what’s happened to being able to transfer 2015 data to 2016????

  10. Where is turkish team besiktas and fenerbahce stupid . How you are dont understand in turkey living 75.000.000 fans

  11. License for all EPL teams and 2nd Division all License for National Teams License for all real Team Names and League Names enable Hand ball,enable Outside Stadium view OVERLAY before kick off and After A Match,enable more license Stadiums,Balls,Boots and Gloves and more animations in Real Life Mode,Master League Mode,All UAFA Modes and Exibition mode. Fox Engine should provide us with better Faces,Body mass and better looks of the game

    change the Main Menu,Kit Selection and Team Management screen like Fifa 16

    most importantly some people complains about game speed,free kick guides on screen and power rising to fast and when taking free kicks or Goal Kicks right anolog stick is to turn camera switch it back to left anolog stick ( just like fifa )and one more big offer we ask I think i speak for all Pes lovers we want to show EA we could do it too we want Womens National Teams .
    small problems every year with Pes but Konami this new year 2017 we wanna make Pes the best of the best so try listening to your fans or followers who agrees
