While FIFA is technically more popular, PES is revered by many as the more realistic football simulator. PES brings an experience that captures the pure artistry of the game. The ball feels responsive and real as it moves across the pitch, passes are smooth and natural, and in general, every PES game does an amazing job of making this video game version of football feel real.

PES 2020 looks to raise the bar even higher in its attempt to be the year’s definitive football game. New features, licenses, and enhanced realism will help make that possible.
