    There's a manual way to select players. Just hold L1 and push right stick to the direction of player you want. Can take a little time to get used to. I use it mixed with the auto select.

    That's never really worked for me. The old manual switching was much better imo. (you'll see the same moan in every thread since the PS3 era!)

    Just skimmed the EG review and it sounds pretty rough.

    I know what I'm getting when I buy the game, poor menu's just don't really matter to me.

    I've seen enough from the demo to know it's a good choice this year.

    The menu's and overall presentation are a fucking joke.

    For years I've been trying to get a few mates into PES to break the FIFA stranglehold but the overall presentation is an instant turn-off for them. It can't be that hard to give them a little spruce, can it?

    Hell, they could keep the same on the pitch action as PES18 and spend a full year redoing the presentation and I'd be happy.

    Great football, shit menu's, presentation and commentary.

    Pretty much every pes game ever then.

    Not that there is an excuse, they really should give it a facelift it is so so bad.

    Is the presentation issue largely due to it being Winning Eleven in Japan? That's what I've always thought.

    Do Japanese people really like those awful menus and that style of presentation?

    @robc84 agreed, in no way a defence of the game, but at least on the PC version, dodgy kits and leagues etc can be extremely easily patched to the extent it's not a down side for me.

    What is incredibly annoying is even though i can get past the archaic menu systems, is the delay between various menus. Bloody frustrating the last 2 years, the demo seems a lot more responsive, but maybe because its just a demo so no connectivity.

    Either way, i tried FIFA on the switch last year and as much as the game modes are excellent, the football just doesn't do it for me. In PES i have the ability to get the ball to do exactly what i want it to do. It's like the game knows what i am trying to do.

    Also according to steam i have now played the demo for 9 hours. With ONE game mode, 10 teams and 5minute halves.

    £25 on cdkeys, even if i were to play the final game for like 20 hours, still worth it pound for pound.

    How long does it normally take until there's a decent patch? Going to wait to purchase until there's one. CBA with Man Red and Madrid White and all that.

    Thatís one annoying thing about PES is the wait for kit packs. It can take months to get a decent one and I donít want to start a ML without proper kits.

    Yeah can't say I've waited more than a week or two after release to have all the kits in for the last few releases.

    The paid one from PES Universe was about 80% complete on day 1 last year. Had all the major leagues. Judging by their tweet regarding the Sky Bet Championship, that must already be balls deeps this year.

    Yeah I know it's paid, but I really feel these guys deserve it as they have regular jobs and family and I really cba doing it myself. Plus, I think the standard is very high knowing they got paying customers.

    Kit template is identical to last year so they have been working for a while now.

    Ta. Note this is definitely not me considering caving, despite not having played the demo yet or anything.

    You must give the demo a go. If only to look at the beautiful pitch :D

    @Jyzzy-Z Japanese games quite often have shit ui's. Their websites are often similarly shitty as well and it doesn't seem to be something they care much about, western markets are far more UX orientated. They would benefit by bringing in a decent UX person as they could fix the menus with very little effort as they aren't even overly complicated.

    Pes is still one of the few things that gets the 'kid at Christmas' feel with a mere dispatch email :)

    Which I got within an hour of preordering from Simply! Had a few games of the demo. I think it's going to take a while to click for me. I'm finding the response time of the players on the turn especially slow. More realistic yadda yadda, but I'm finding that slightly frustrating.

    It arrived a short while ago. I've had a quick 6 games. It's harder than last year. The defenders seem better and there's less reliance on speed and the through ball. Which is a good thing I guess but I have an over reliance on both, so it's going to take a while to adjust. Servers are down though, so can't get stuck into myclub.
