I’ve had PES 2015 retail code

I’ve had PES 2015 retail code for over a week now and after lots of time with it, the differences between what PES does really well and where FIFA annually lacks, are clearer than ever. In years past the PES series has been maligned to such an extent that it wasn’t even considered as a genuine rival to FIFA, but this year that's changed, and in turn so must FIFA.

A few caveats before I begin. I’ll only be talking about PES 2015 gameplay, as at the time of writing the online servers aren’t live and Data Pack 1 hasn’t been released, which among other things updates all the transfers. So pure gameplay it is.
