I do like a bit of soccer now and again, having played PES'211 previously and getting to play this years edition, not much has changed. Pick a mode, be it single, career or online, choose a team and off you go. 

The animation of the players and such remain as before albeit updated player details, kits and the like. The sound and effects has always been great throughout the series and I'm glad to say that it's as good as always, along with realistic sounding crowds, chants and tannoy announcements, smooth commentary flows like butter on hot toast.

There aren't many soccer games to compare apart from the obvious (FIFA series) and for what it's worth despite comparisons, will always have its arms open for those who embrace it.
