The ball started rolling a few moments ago, but the referee (in this case the users) have already taken the red card. eFootball 2022, the new version of Konami’s football simulator, had raised the eyebrows of many PES fans, who saw how the saga abandoned its old name to embrace the model free-to-play. The worst fears have been fulfilled, at least as regards the receipt of the title. According Steam 250, the game has the worst rating ever on Steam.
User reviews have placed it in the lowest position, and that in the Steam library there are thousands and thousands of video games analyzed. Konami’s proposal has garnered a stunted 8% out of 100, thus unseating Flatout 3 as the lowest rated title on the platform. The Japanese company will find it difficult to reverse the barrage of criticism, which threatens to sink the legacy of a memorable saga.
eFootball 2022, protagonist of memes
The truth is that the first hours of eFootball have not been anything flattering. In a very short time, the networks have been filled with memes, especially related to animations. Not even two of the great stars of contemporary football have been spared to get rid of them, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Their expressions in the game have been a source of derision. Ansu Fati has also had his comic moment, when he has appeared with his arms in an unnatural position.
eFootball 2022 is available on mobile, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The product that was just released is something of a demo, as it will be in November when the big fall update debuts. Later, Konami will introduce new game modes and it will expand on other aspects of the title, not to mention the graphical improvements in the new generation, which will be implemented later.
