Ive been playing PES for a few years now, and this is a very up and down game, so Ill break it down by aspect:
Master League: Better than previous PES games, the market is better, and players are much more like their real life counterparts.
Become a Legend: Far more realistic as it is harder to become an instant legend. Some of the teams lower down are atrocious and relying on them for providing balls for you as a striker can be infuriating
AI: Mostly an improvement, the main annoyances with AI controlled teammates are that they seem just as keen as before to run the ball off the side of the pitch. The new one is they attempt ridiculous first time shots after a keeper deflection that can be annoying when screaming for the ball for a simple tap in!
I do like the greater control you are given over the pass and cross power and direction. It takes some getting used to at first, but is worth sticking at.
All in all, a good game, one of the better PES games.
