One of the other big areas for improvement is the PC version of the game. PES 17 has a markedly lower Metacritic score for PC than it does for console, and plenty of people have complained that it received a lazy PC port, dogged by poor performance and reduced features. Football games are always going to be more popular on console than on PC, but that’s no excuse for a substandard experience.
It would also be great to see PES 18 respond to one of FIFA 17’s biggest new features: The Journey. The new single player story mode proved a surprise success, despite some occasionally shaky writing, and it’d be great to see Pro Evo hit back with its own take on a story campaign.
