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.

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.

Even the decision to take a year off was universally applauded, but after two years of development this is the game Konami has released? The next big update is supposed to bring in some new modes and game mechanics, so I wouldn't fault anyone who deletes the game and gives it a go then because, at this point, there's only one direction eFootball 2022 can go, right?

eFootball is not a step backwards - it is a step back in development. Konami forgot about the experience gained over the years and offered a defiant product that does not encourage you to stay with it for longer. Sometimes even free vinegar is not sweet.

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 the current state of eFootball 2022, it should be said that for now this title is not worth experience.

It's a shame that a historic football franchise is now officially long gone and its place has been taken by a game that is not even playable to begin with. And no it cannot be excused because its free-to-play.

Ultimately, eFootball 2022 is a disaster at launch. It's a buggy, unenjoyable mess with limited gameplay options that strip back the core strengths of the PES series, and the fact that it was released in this state at all is shocking. Konami may bring in fixes as it implements further free-to-play updates, but even then, the question over eFootball 2022's worth will still need to be repeatedly asked.

eFootball 2022 might be one of the most disastrous launches I have ever seen. I’ve seen magazine demo discs with more content than this “game”. There’s no reason to play it at the moment: its online matchmaking simply doesn’t work, its offline content is more sparse than an Atari 2600 game, and its gameplay is simply not as fluid as the one featured in its last-gen predecessors.
