eFootball 2022 Is Already The Worst Reviewed Game In Steam’s History

eFootball 2022 has been met with "overwhelmingly negative" reviews on Steam following its official release on 30 September, with the game already going down as the worst-reviewed in the platform's history. Oh blimey.

Following Konami's controversial decision to completely rebrand the Pro Evolution Soccer series with a free-to-play edition, the company promised a change that 'signalled a new era' of virtual soccer, with enhanced graphics and gameplay mentioned.

That being said, the overall reaction to the release has been nothing short of a disaster. From wonky smiles and terrifying facial expressions [even from the cardboard-looking crowd] to players walking through the net after scoring, the game clearly needs some serious TLC.

Things only get worse for Konami and its latest venture after a quick search on Steam.

At the time of writing, a total of 10,647 users have submitted a review on eFootball, with a shocking 9,688 of those posting a negative response to the game.

One user wrote: "This is a joke. The worst football game I ever played. It simply is a mobile game. The ball weighs 100kg, the contacts between players are chaotic, nothing feels right. It's a shame."

Another commented: "I don't know why they bothered to hype up and even skip on PES2021 for this so-called new engine. The game feels like the same old sluggish nonsense it felt before. In other words, there are no worthwhile football games worthwhile anymore."

Ahead of eFootball 2022's release date on 30 September, the company stated that gamers can enjoy "cutting-edge graphics and incomparable immersion" on new-gen consoles.

"It all began with the implacable determination to create a revolutionary football experience," a statement on their website reads.

"Our ambition was to recreate the perfect football environment, from the grass on the pitch, to the players' movement, all the way to the crowds in the stadium.

"To this end, we decided to create a new football engine, with revamped animation system and game controls. The final result was even more impressive than we had originally conceived.

"We had gone beyond the border of PES, into a new realm of virtual football."

In the Steam description, Konami have stated that new features, modes, events and gameplay improvements are planned for the near future.
