The game will constantly throw live events your way, and those events correspond with real-world tournaments.

eFootball 2023 is also a well-known football/soccer game. This one comes from KONAMI. It seems like players have been having issues with it lately, however, which is why its rating plummeted. Still, we do hope that KONAMI will fix most of those issues soon, so that everyone can enjoy the game properly.

The graphics in the game are nice, and the gameplay is excellent. Some people would say they prefer this to what FIFA Soccer has to offer in terms of gameplay, that’s up to you. There are a ton of teams and players to choose from here, and also a ton of competitions to choose from.
