REVIEW FIFA 21
Since 1994, FIFA and PES (formerly ISS) are fighting for first place in order to be recognized as the ultimate football simulator. Similar to the powerful rivalry of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, sport fans have been divided on who is really the champion. Some argue that FIFA is the full package due to the wealth of licensed modes and teams, while others say that PES is a more accurate representation of sport. However, with EFootball PES 2021 that simply publish a season update this year, more than ever the heads turned to FIFA 21. What raises the question, is it the year when FIFA will be crowned balloon gold?
Your first step in the field will seem familiar to you. Rather than reviewing the successful formula of recent years, EA Vancouver has opted for minor adjustments during this transition year. Occasional players may have trouble noticing the changes, but the fanatics will be amazed by the tactical prowess who are now resting in their hands.
A novelty in the series is the Creative Run function that adds depth to your time on the ground. It is over time to shout your teammates to run. Now, with a simple pressure on the left shoulder button, followed by a shot of the right analogue, your partner will rush in the desired direction so that you can pass this killer. On top of that, there is Direted Pass and Go that is essentially a One-Two manual. After playing the ball, you point in the direction in which you want the smuggler to move, which allows you to manipulate how your team applies the pressure on your opponent’s defense. Player lock gives you total freedom; This is where the IA takes the player’s reins with the ball while you control someone else in the team. I found this especially useful when you try to get out of difficult situations, because you can maneuver to key positions and then simply perform the required pass. In addition to the positioning of the personality, who sees the intelligence of world-class players in the game, which means that Bruno Fernandes will find room in the pocket between field circles and defenders and Mohamed Salah will hold his race before starting behind the lateral rear.
The new Agile Dribble Mechanism, which allows you to make a path through the adversary’s defense or explode in space, relies on the fence fee of last year. Jockey is a controlled and overused technique to control the game of wings. With the addition of agile dribbles, it helps balance these delicate head-to-head scenarios, creating intense moments when blistering on the flank.
Newcomers are not alarmed. Although I focused on the shades of the gameplay, FIFA 21’s deep and extended drive mode guarantees that everyone can engage in the game. EA even offers a range of control systems that guarantee that anyone, Whatever his age, can enter the boots of his icon.
FIFA has always been boasted with a range of modes that would please any type of player and the last iteration does the same. The fantastic Ultimate Team replicates the last year’s version with just minor updates from the user interface. In this, you can create your team from scratch by winning parts or unfortunately buying points. Added to the east mode was co-op that allows you to team up with friends in both competitive online rivals and team battles IA so you can earn rewards together. Although the ugly chief of microtransactions makes fun of fashion, his addictive nature and the fact that he continually rewards a culmination of the game.
Want to be the next Pep Guardiola? Then head to the career mode where you can lead your team to glory. Planning is in addition to the effort last year. You must now determine when to train, rest and recover your team by adding another depth and strategy layer to mode. The morals of the team is more important than ever and this will have to be managed by the calendar and conversations with the players so you feel how to scoffer your team. The most impressive addition of the mode is the interactive match simulation. Here you can handle the team from the key line, but you can then be instantly transported to the field by simply pressing a button, which allows you to have a quick impact on the key moments of the game. With new players’ transfer and development options, dynamic career mode is the best in the history of the franchise. In addition to managerial options, you can also transport yourself in the game to complete an illustrious footballer career. So, that you strive to be the next Mbunction or Alex Ferguson, the vast career mode is the ideal place.
Last year, presented the excellent Volta mode, which is basically FIFA Street. With a range of rules according to the size of the correspondence (3V3, 4V4 or 5V5), the mode offers a different sensation and rhythm compared to other modes of the game. The focus changes from teamwork to Individual skills and the new Agile Dribble Mechanism shines here, allowing you to position the ball complex to thwart your opponent. The development of its predecessor is “the beginning” which is a narrative experience within Volta. Although it includes trembling dubbings, the introduction of legends in history is a welcome addition.
The series has always been invited to faithfully reproduce the television experience and their last output continues in the same way. From the UEFA Champions League presentation to the authentic commentary of the day, FIFA 21 brings back the public into the stadium.
FIFA 21 is a complete package that will keep the Football fans addicted throughout the season. Although there are only a few small improvements, the tactical possibilities that they unlock are vast. With dual entity, which means you can transfer your progress to new generation consoles and the fact that it is filled with content on the goal posts, FIFA 21 comfortably takes the gold shoe for 2021.
