Currently, eFootball 2022 is still struggling with the same problems that make it officially the worst rated game on Steam: In addition to mobile graphics, optical glitches and broken AI, the hip-stiff gameplay in particular caused a lot of criticism of the release status.
After all, eFootball has improved somewhat in the Steam Reviews in the past few weeks: After initially only nine percent of all user ratings were positive, it is now 11 percent. That means that you are now only four percentage points behind Flatout 3: Chaos & Destruction.
Whether the upcoming patch can further improve the rating remains to be seen – after all, there is still a lot to improve and Konami has not yet revealed which changes are specifically planned.
