PES 2019 is out and it went down a storm with critics, who have praised the game's animation, physics, and improvements to goalkeepers. It feels better than ever, they say. Job done then, well done everybody, let's go home and win the Champions League on Master League.Ah. About that.PES has lost UEFA's flagship license to its primary rival, FIFA 19.
