The only reason i tempted to boot up again PES 2019 until now to be honest, is the old-school R2 function . Special controls and most important better first touch and trappimg the ball and the "let L-stick" and pivot to face the goalpost move.Issue with this game was backheels and perfect shooting. I have been playing it a bit to compare with 20 and I choose 19 over 20 all day. 20 is aesthetically terrible. Player models and ball interaction are absent minded and the game is a hollow mess. 19 the player models interact with the ball with less revving up motion and there is actually a sense of resistance throughout the pitch. The ball doesn't get absorbed into the net like 20 does, and scoring goals feel more satisfying because the keeper isn't caught in two minds or being superman.
Again though, the biggest issue is that it took the subtle and rare elements of a beautiful game and tried too hard to make it the norm. I think I'll take my chances on 19 over 20 though.
Since pes5 i was using R2 to pass and receive tge ball about 75% of my game. Having it completely "destroyed" in pes2020 made me loose the feeling of controling the attacking game.
Especially the pivot move is completely out of context, being implemented on the SPRINT button.
