Built (perhaps a little surprisingly) using Kojima Productions' FOX engine, physicality underpins Pro Evolution Soccer 2015. Its rival, perhaps thanks to its impressive graphical finish, has the reputation as the most simulator-like game of the pair. But, if you really poke at PES 2015, its mechanics are defined by the push and pull of realistic play.
Going shoulder to shoulder with a computer controlled player, for example, will force the AI to second guess whether it can hang onto the ball. It might power through or it might try to change direction and go for a pass. What it will definitely do, though, is react. It's this reactive AI that runs through the heart of PES 2015.
The developers over at PES Productions Team have worked over both goalkeeping and shooting to up the realism at those key moments, too.
The game has been given a graphical overhaul, too. Slicker animations can be seen on the pitch, while crowd animations have also been improved and will better reflect the ebb and flow of the match. That's all brought together by an overhaul of the lighting, which now all comes from one source, adding a more natural feel to the game.
