Critic Reviews for eFootball 2022

Yes, at least eFootball 2022 does now have a fully-fledged mode to take it past the point of being a demo, but it's still lacking so much more than you'd expect from a 1.0 version of a game.

In PR terms, it's the world's costliest public beta. There's a lithe control system in the wreckage, but it'll take many updates to dig it out.

It certainly isn’t a matter of a lack of talent at PES Productions. I don’t believe for a second the developers don’t know how to make a better game than this - we need only look at the last few PES games for evidence to the contrary. These are vastly talented, experienced, passionate people, working as best they can on a deeply flawed concept with a spectacularly poorly communicated plan. They don’t deserve chastisement on social media, though they’ll inevitably get it. But equally, eFootball 2022 still doesn’t deserve your time yet.

A shameful launch of a barely playable, graphically embarrassing game that shames the memory of PES and may have killed the new franchise before it's even begun.

A disastrous start to the post-PES era. The only consolation? It surely can't get any worse from here.

Launching a game, even free-to-play, in such a sorry state is a total lack of respect for the user, and in this case, for the history of the once best soccer franchise.

Konami couldn't have chosen a worse way to bring its football franchise to the new generation, as eFootball 2022 seems more like a mobile game ported for PS5 and now Konami is facing an uphill battle to regain the trust of the community and come back from what could be the worst sports simulation in the history of video games.

Given Konami's commitment to gambling games over the last few years, you'd think they'd be averse to making poor gambling decisions.
