Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 (abbreviated as PES 2015 and known as World Soccer: Winning Eleven 2015 in Japan) is a football simulation game developed by PES Productions and published by Konami for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. It is the fourteenth edition of the Pro Evolution Soccer series. The cover of the game features Mario Götze of Bayern Munich (except for the Japanese version, whose cover art features Keisuke Honda of A.C. Milan). In this game, the slogan used was The Pitch is Ours for the first time. PES 2015 was followed by Pro Evolution Soccer 2016.
The game's first downloadable content pack was released on 9 November 2014, ahead of the official launch of PES 2015 on 13 November. The pack adds an extra eight European teams (Slovan Bratislava, FK Partizan, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Ludogorets Razgrad, HJK Helsinki, Qarabağ, Legia Warsaw, Sparta Prague), the Copa Sudamericana 2014 tournament, summer transfers, new player faces, latest squad lineups, and a series of latest boots from Adidas, Nike and Puma.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 received generally positive reviews from critics. IGN scored it a 9 out of 10, stating \"PES 2015 embraces its PS2-era roots while offering almost everything you could want from a modern football simulation.\" However, they criticized the presentation, saying that it still needs some work. Hardcore Gamer gave the game a 4 out of 5, saying, \"After a few submissive years, Konami has put forth a game that caters to soccer fans with superb flexibility for creative expression, fluid gameplay and astoundingly intelligent AI.\"
Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 will showcase a rebirth of PES as a game, but more importantly a cultural hub where gamers and soccer supporters congregate. PES will become more than a video game. It will become a cultural pillar that fans who love the sport of soccer can lean on to immerse themselves in the game.
PES 2015 will come complete with a fresh, reimagined batch of gameplay improvements that will continue to bring The Beautiful Game to life in ways no other sports game can. The Fox Engine will create a new experience that touches all areas of gameplay Animations, physics, new modes, AI, online play, DLC, social connectivity and more!

If you're a football/soccer video game fan, chances are you're loyal to either PES or FIFA. My own longstanding loyalty to FIFA 15 ($59.99) was shaken this year thanks to problems with the AI and referees. Pro Evolution 2015 ($39.99) offered relief for me this year, but PES 2015's lower price tag also reflects the lower quality of just about everything else in the game, from the gameplay to the commentary.
You can recognize some players simply by the way they run or carry themselves, but they appear a little squat in stature. PES 15's player movements during close-ups and goal celebrations are smooth and realistic compared with the awkward FIFA 15 player movements. Konami does a much better job than EA at replicating facial details, emotions, and expressions. Players' eyes in PES 15 reveal what they're feeling at the time, whereas players' eyes in FIFA 15 lack soul, and facial expressions are terrible. Unfortunately, that's where PES 2015's player aesthetic superiority ends, as players are stiff and limited to a smaller variety of movements during gameplay.
While the player physics and aesthetics during a goal celebration look better in PES 2015, there's one element that I really miss from FIFA 15. That game's wobbling camera effect caused by your fans jumping up and down in the stand after your team scores at home is a great touch that adds more excitement to scoring. Its lack in PES 15 is by no means a deal breaker, but it's a small detail that's typical of the FIFA's better overall visual experience.
You'll hear a few familiar fan chants from the stands in PES 2015, but nowhere near as many as you hear in FIFA 15. Commentary is also extremely limited, which may seem like a small detail, but after listening to the extensive commentary in FIFA 15 it's pretty hard not to notice.
Slow but SmartPES 2015 still delivers a good rendition of the beautiful game. It's easier to score in PES 2015 than it is in FIFA 15, but not too easy. Sadly, some of the excitement in PES 2015 is hampered by comparatively sluggish controls. Ball control and handling generally feel soft, and passing is slow unless you use quick one-two passing. Speeding up gameplay in the settings doesn't have much of an effect, either, as players still don't display much urgency. Even when you kick or head a screamer, the ball appears to fly at a casual speed, which detracts excitement.
On the other hand PES 2015's AI is better than FIFA 15's, which makes for a less frustrating experience. I used to think the frustrations I felt in FIFA 15 were EA's way of replicating the frustrations real players feel during a match, but it eventually became clear that FIFA 15's poor player AI was to blame. For example, computer-controlled players bump into each other and fall to the ground, and the amount of time it takes to get back up renders them useless, which is particularly irritating during crucial moments.
FIFA 15's lacking AI extends to its refereeing, where AI mistakes caused the referee to call completely arbitrary fouls that ruined matches in my testing. Thankfully, PES 2015's referees are much better, and they also let the momentum of play go on after official extra-time if there's a potentially match-changing play in progress, whereas refs in FIFA 15 can blow the final whistle the moment you're about to press shoot for a critical goal.
Both PES and FIFA let you issue attack and defend commands to players outside your control, but PES 2015's players are smarter and, refreshingly, less reliant on your commands. It's good to have some control of the surrounding players, but sometimes you just want your team to play like they can read each other (you know, like a real team). I can't tell you the number of times in FIFA 15 that my forwards don't make obvious runs to receive a through-pass, instead waiting for my command to do so. In PES 2015, your players have more autonomy and do a better job of getting in positions on their own.
Second-Class SoccerIf you can think of FIFA 15 as your first-team goalkeeper, PES 2015 is the one on the bench. It offers a familiar look that has garnered the love and loyalty of millions around the world, but it may be time for Konami to engage in a graphical overhaul for the game to match expectations in this next-gen day and age. Most importantly, gameplay isn't as exciting, as it's relatively slow and feels laborious compared with FIFA 15. That's not to say it's not fun, though, as it's still a good football simulation. It's just that the overall quality isn't quite up to the level of FIFA 15.
PES 2015's debut on the new generation of hardware serves as the perfect antidote to fans who lost faith during the previous console switchover. The FIFA juggernaut has rolled on well beyond the point Konami's series could last count itself holder of virtual football's Ballon d'Or. Dedicated players have converted, and an entire generation has moved on to EA Sports' series. PES 2015, however, storms onto the pitch, flag in tow, ready to go full Souness on its major rival.
Perhaps its the increasing significance of Ultimate Team that accounts for FIFA's increasing flair for dramatics, but even as it introduces its own myClub, PES 2015 is a pleasant reminder there's an actual sport to be enjoyed. Subtle physicality is at the heart of a system which rewards those who battle to the very last, whether you're approaching goal or desperately trying to protect your own.
Going shoulder to shoulder is responsive and forces the AI into second-guessing whether they can retain possession. Some will use Olympic strength to power through, others will slow up, change direction and look for a pass. Reactionary intelligence - the kind which actively seeks solutions to problems you inflict - is at the core of everything PES 2015 gets right. 59ce067264
