"If you don't get hooked on the gameplay, you may find the game repetitious in the latter stages, but by then you'll have gotten your money's worth regardless. Ask yourself one question before passing this game up; will I ever have another chance to bloodily slice limbs off of grotesque naked men (without doing serious jail time)?"
"Overall, PES 17 is an enjoyable game; a representation of football the way we sometimes wish it to be, and a good time with a friend (or stranger). It’s not a revelation for the series though, nor is it a huge advance on its predecessor. The niggles mentioned above stop this game being ‘great’ in my opinion, but many of these are subjective points and your experience with the game could easily differ dependent on how much or little you agree. At the very least, the game proves it can go shoulder to shoulder with its closest rival; offering a satisfyingly different gameplay experience."
"I called this game a 'rough diamond' and that's exactly what I mean. It's a great concept that could benefit from a bit more polish. As a solo game, it's not bad. As a co-op game, it's much better. Taken as a debut game, with its reasonably original concept and fusion of old and new stealth and action elements - it's a great achievement, and one that makes me hopeful for both the game and its studio's future."
"The game follows the Norse mythology, which we often see only vague allusions to in gaming. The dialogue is all subtitled Scandinavian, keeping true to the Nordic tone. This, the subtle lilting music and the animation all blend together well to make Jotun feel like a playable fairy tale, albeit a rather grim one"
"To me, this game is a modern classic that truly showcases what a developer can achieve when they try to bring every aspect of a game together to form a cohesive piece of art. I would recommend it to fans of Limbo, Abzu and any Oddworld-type platformer. I am acutely aware, however, that this opinion will not be shared by everyone who plays"
