Nothing against the game, series, developer or publisher but last year's PES was bad on so many levels. The game did not just disappoint long time fans; it also offered nothing new to the genre itself while handing over the "best football game" title to FIFA and EA Sports. The first encouraging sign coming from the people behind this game came earlier this year. They announced that the online mode will not require the annoying signing up process anymore. Further promised additions included an easier to control game, better presentation and more tactical options. How well executed those features are however is another story.
