eFootball 2022 PS5  Free Download GAMESPACK.NET Over six months since a dismal launch that was barely more than a bug-infested demo, eFootball 2022 has taken steps in the right direction, albeit tiny ones, with its long-awaited 1.0 update. Most noticeably, the bugs have all but disappeared, but what remains is still a hollow shell of a football game that lacks depth, modes, and any real reason to play it consistently. In truth, it’s still hard to recommend playing eFootball, even if it is completely free to do so. It’s all a bit sad really. What was once a series considered the pinnacle of its genre in the glory days of Pro Evolution Soccer has devolved into this soulless impersonation. It’s reminiscent of those awful pandemic months when football took place in empty stadiums. Yes, technically football was being played but it was nowhere near the same spectacle without fans, a similar fate eFootball may suffer from sooner rather than later if big changes aren’t made soon. Overall, the presentation on the pitch looks pretty good – player models are largely accurate and the stadiums, while limited in number, look authentic. It’s a vast improvement over the hilarious and sometimes frankly frightening faces being pulled in the early access version. TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

The same can’t quite be said for the atmosphere inside the stadiums, which often falls flat, not aided by some lifeless commentary. On top of that are menus and UI, which, although more colourful than we’re used to from Konami’s football games, are still awkward and unintuitive to navigate. Having had to play a lot of eFootball’s earlier versions, it may just be Stockholm syndrome at this point, but there does seem to be a freer flow to general play as players feel a lot less stiff to manoeuvre. They are also more reactive, no longer ignoring balls outside of their immediate radius, although controlling them neatly can often be a bridge too far. There is an increased sense of control in attack and defence, too – eFootball no longer feels like it’s simply happening to you. Defence is by no means fully refined, but improved shoulder charges and manual tackles definitely help you deal with opponent attackers with greater ease. AI defenders do appear to wander off out of position on their accord though, allowing for long through balls leading to goals happening way too often.

A Football Game for the Football Fans.

It’s unclear if this is down to a bug or not, but something that clearly needs addressing either way. The ability to now press as a team and put pressure on the ball brings an edge of modern tactical play to eFootball that it desperately needs. Calling teammates for extra pressure and stealing the ball high up the pitch has led to goalscoring opportunities more often than not. It’s obvious that this, as well as a couple of other gameplay additions, were meant to be in eFootball from the start, but instead it was released in a completely unfinished form. These new additions don’t completely solve the problems that initial release had, though. “Stunning kicks” are a new quirk that allow you to hold down the right trigger and apply extra power to passes and shots. Although these do occasionally result in a spectacular goal, you are far more likely to get the ball pinched from your toes as your player takes half a century to wind his leg up. If you do get a shot away, though, there’s a decent chance of it going in as goalkeepers seem more balanced now, no longer reacting like Daredevil hearing a brick smash through a window.Edge Of Eternity PS5

From time to time there are flowing moves to marvel at, but they happen all too rarely, with satisfying passing coming at a premium. Some passes will be laser-focused and threaded through the eye of a needle, while others slowly roll along the floor begrudgingly towards a teammate – without feeling clear about what caused the difference. In fact, the only real consistency with eFootball’s gameplay is its inconsistency. One moment you’ll be jinking past a defender and curling one in the top corner, the next you’ll be trying to dribble only to find your player has a turning circle more at home in Euro Truck Simulator. You’ve probably heard about eFootball 2022 in these terms: historically disastrous Steam launch. Dearth of content. Dire bugs, sketchy online play, overwhelmingly negative reviews, death of the franchise. Sadly the plucky foil to FIFA’s microtransaction-hoovering behemoth can be described quite accurately in all those ways this year. The thing is, it doesn’t play that bad a game of football. Somewhere under the rubble, there’s a good soccer sim waiting to be pulled free.

The Largest eSports Platform.

The idea behind this bizarre and totally ill-conceived launch is that Konami releases the bare bones on day one, then puts some meat on them in future patches. The shell of the game is free, with a ‘premium player pack’ offered for £31 on Steam which adds in-game currency and ‘chance deals’—two mechanics for modes that don’t currently exist. They’re for modes that are planned in future updates. In this free version we’ve got nine licensed domestic clubs to play exhibition games with, plus four more Serie A teams and Zenit St Petersburg which can be selected for the Partner Clubs online challenge mode only, and never changed once selected, plus the Portugal and Argentina national squads who appear once in the game’s tutorial match never to be found again. Completing this online challenge awards you virtual currency which can’t currently be spent. And that, friends, is eFootball 2022 in its present state. Utterly perplexing. Some people have said it’s like a demo, but it isn’t really—demos give a free sample of a full product which can be bought. Rugby 22 PS5

This is all there is right now. Big content drops are planned, the first of which is due 11th November and adds Creative Team—think FUT in PES clothing—and will cost £34. The developer has also rolled out a hotfix already which addresses some of the most disruptive bugs, netcode wobblies and animation mishaps. The visual bugs many players reported on launch day have been absent from my experience—whether by hotfix or by luck. In any case, it’s essential that they deliver several more if anyone’s going to buy that Creative Team pack. How did this happen? It began with a decision that made sense on paper. By forsaking a full release last year and instead opting for a ‘season update’ which simply updated teams and players according to real-world transfers, the eFootball 2022 team gave themselves the breathing room to take virtual football a sizeable step forwards. The advent of new consoles would let the team push some fidelity boundaries, which the PC version would also enjoy. We’ve all been saying that for years in the throes of our best Michael Pachter impressions, haven’t we: Annualised Franchise 2019 should skip a year and do something that’s really worth playing next year instead.

An update that adds more kicks.

Evidently, it actually takes longer than that to achieve. Setting aside the eerie absence of longform modes, there are animations and even kicks absent from the current release that are planned later. An update that adds more kicks. This is no way to unveil the successor to PES. It’s now running in Unreal Engine, and perhaps the momentous task of engine migration explains the bugs and bizarre collisions that discern eFootball 2022 from its predecessors. Some have levelled accusations that the grass looks plasticky now and that players all look like haunted waxwork dolls—your mileage may vary. To this reviewer’s wizened eyes the stadiums, crowds, and pitch surfaces look better than they ever have before. Players do have a disquieting sheen about them though which detracts from the face scans, and an odd way of articulating their facial expressions when arguing with the ref or pinging around like detritus in Goat Simulator after a stand-up tackle. It’s slow, and fiddly, sometimes to the point of ponderous and frustrating, but it’s also impressive in how forensic it is about dribbling On that: there’s something ungodly about the collisions.

Isaac Newton would be in tears if he were in the stands, and the fundamental dodginess is only exacerbated by a revamped pace system which so often sends players hurtling into one another at full speed. But I’m not ready to give up on it. Even though I’ve been playing as Napoli and only Napoli in Partner Clubs mode for hours on end, even though I keep going back to the main menu, the hideous main menu, and clicking on the greyed out icons to make sure that nope, this really is it… I’m not ready to give up. Because I can see the intention in its football. It’s slow, and fiddly, sometimes to the point of ponderous and frustrating, but it’s also impressive in how forensic it is about dribbling. Rather than a hold-to-beat-defender button, sprinting has been reworked to reward deft taps. You can wrongfoot defenders by changing your pace and direction every kick, and pull off massively satisfying chops by directing the analog stick away from the player and tapping sprint. In these moments, a Bayern defender lolloping hopelessly behind you, you feel that rarest of sensations: like the player and the ball are separate entities. And this focus on the minutiae of one-on-one battles has, at least, the potential for fascinating online matchups.

Were it not for the horrific collisions it’d be possible to get some genuinely tense and subtle matches on the go—dinking it this way past a defender, dropping a shoulder to create space, crafting a chance out of three perfectly judged touches. Infrequently, it’s actually quite thrilling. It needs help from the passing and a minor miracle from the AI to make that happen more. Currently ground passes seem glazed in treacle while squaring the ball the width of the pitch with a lobbed pass takes next to no time. But the real problem is team AI behaviour. Just as they did in PES, players on both sides will go to sleep and watch balls travel huge distances like annoying passive jerks because the game has simply decided upon the (distant) player who’ll receive it. Defenders get tangled up with one another like they’re all made of un-baked pretzel dough, and nobody seems 100% clear on the tactical system you’re using—not enough to reap the rewards of picking one that matches your squad’s attributes, certainly.
