eFootball 2022, Formerly Known As PES, Has Been Released And It's A Mess

eFootball has been released worldwide today and already fans are panning the game for a plethora of reasons.

Konami have retired the PES name and instead made the new title free-to-play and only available digitally.

Clubs like Barcelona, Juventus, FC Bayern, and Manchester United are fully licensed after Konami stole a march on EA Sports and FIFA, but the new game has a lot of issues.

For starters, images of the graphics doing the rounds show Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo look nothing like their real life selves.

For reasons unclear, the pair of football titans have elf-like features on eFootball.

And that's not all. A glitch has Nicolas Otamendi's arm nearly falling off as Pepe tries to tackle him, while Ansu Fati is running with his arms behind him like Naruto.

To make matters worse, you can only play five minute games - something you'd normally get in a demo version of the game.

The game has been absolutely panned by fans who were hoping the new direction would help make it an exciting and worthwhile alternative to FIFA.

Even with no cost it seems like gamers have been ripped off.  Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr are both ambassadors for eFootball, with Gerard Pique and Andres Iniesta named as "official advisors".
