A wave of memes and taunts flooded social networks this September 30 after the eFootball premiere 2022, the replacement of the mythical PES saga, since the errors in movements and especially the strange faces of the players, caused outrage and jokes.
For this reason, the developer of the game, Konami, had to go out to apologize, among other things, for the distorted faces of Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

The statement states the following:
“We are very sorry for the problems and want to assure everyone that we are going to take all concerns seriously and strive to improve the current situation. The quality will be improved and the content will be added consistently. Starting next week, we will prepare for an update in October, while we receive more feedback through questionnaires from our users. We will do our best to satisfy as many users as possible and we look forward to your continued support for eFootball 2022 ”.
The truth is that users had also made fun of, for example, how the players ran, like a sequence recorded by a Chilean, where the player Ansu Fati from Barcelona FC runs off like the anime character: Naruto.

It got such bad reviews on its first official day that eFootball established itself as the most poorly rated game on the Steam platform in history, and in just 24 hours.
