Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 has been one of the most positive surprises of the past season, knowing how to regain the pulse of the most intense and frenetic soccer, and giving players the possibility of taking the reins on the pitch. It cannot be said that it is a perfect title, but it does become a good base on which to continue building Konami football. So it's good news that UEFA Euro 2016 is the same game, but with a handful of additions and tweaks. So much so that this tournament and its changes and news come free to all owners of the base game, on any of its platforms. However, Konami wanted to take advantage of the license and relaunch the full game, including downloadable content, at a reduced price.

That is, if you do not have Pro Evolution Soccer 2016, for € 30 on PS4 or € 20 on PS3 (the only versions that are marketed), you have everything that this soccer game includes, without any restrictions regarding modes. game or templates, and without the need to connect to the internet to play Euro 2016 with any of the European teams included. It is curious that if you already have PES 2016 and buy this version (there will be someone who will do it, although it is not necessary in any way), the game is installed and is independent of the main title, to the point of being incompatible the saved games between both versions. A curiosity that we have not just explained, but that exists.

Talking about the strengths and weaknesses of this particular version, there is not much room for new features in playable terms , although the latest patch of the game has introduced various changes and tweaks (for example, modifying the inertia of the players). Therefore, if you want to know more about the Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 offer, we recommend that you go through our original analysis, which you can find by clicking on the following link. If clicking this link is a lot of work, we summarize: the best PES in a long time, which allows the player to have control of what happens on the field in a way that other football games do not. It can be a bit arcade and straightforward, but also a lot of fun. It is not perfect yet, but it is about itself that allows us to enjoy our beautiful sport in a more than interesting way.

As for the specific proposal of this UEFA Euro 2016 version, we find one of lime and another of sand . For a ridiculous price we will have access to the final phase of the European Cup of Nations, also having all the official players (with improved resemblances), most of the licenses of the national teams and the Stade de France, which will host the grand final of the tournament. So far so good, however the absences are notable, since several teams do not have an official license in their kits (only England, Wales, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Northern Ireland and the hosts, France), leaving some laced with unofficial apparel. To this must be added that only one of the championship stadiums has been included. Again, a left hook to fidelity to the actual tournament. The culmination of this little nonsense are the players and line-ups that the national teams include, which are still far from being current . At least, Konami has announced that this aspect will be solved when the official competition approaches.

To all this, there are also no specific training sessions, distinctive tactical possibilities or the possibility of winning the participation in this UEFA Euro 2016 on their own merits, surpassing the qualifying phase. Therefore , the specific part of this expansion arrives somewhat decaffeinated , although we cannot complain too much when it comes at a reduced price or for free, if we already have the full game in our possession. No new animations are added, nor is the core of the experience changed, although similarities of the most important players of various teams are improved. The comments are not retouched either, although a musical piece is added to accompany us in the specific menus designed for the Euro 2016 game mode. One more addition is related to the myClub game mode, where we will be granted various advantages by winning this particular version of PES 2016.

PES 2016 - UEFA Euro 2016 is a good game, but only suitable for those who do not have the main title , since in this version it is a free download. In addition, the content that is added can be improved, since it lacks depth in terms of game modes and also lacks in terms of authenticity. This does not mean that we are facing a fun and very enjoyable game, which will enter our console, so as not to leave, from the start of the European Championship until the end.
