They praised the physicality, and the responsive, dynamic gameplay but criticized the uneven, repetitive commentary.[20] GameSpot scored it 9 out of 10, referring to it as a "Return of the king". They said "almost everything in PES 2016 feels fantastic," and praised "how it wonderfully converges" the physics and AI, introducing a new dynamic physics engine with a new collision system and improved AI which includes dozens of smart individual decisions and where "players work together as a unit." They also praised the "outstanding" animations and the enhanced fluidity and control, but criticized the UI, character models, and referee lenience to some fouls.

They stated, "The off-the-ball movement to create give-and-gos are generated naturally, players find good spaces in the box and go for runs, and defenders jostle dribblers and cut out passes", adding that it's "also a much more physical game, with opposing players nipping at your feet, barging you off the ball, and getting stuck in". They concluded, "It ushers in a new era for the franchise that needs to be experienced."[14]
