FIFA 21 Review: Not Like Before

FIFA 21 – Even though the world is being hit by a pandemic like this, football is still one sport that is still running. This is because the demand for entertainment when many people are at home is increasing. Although it requires physical contact, football must somehow run as usual. Likewise with the game, FIFA 21. This sports game made by EA takes the first start in the release of the latest season of football games compared to Konami with its Pro Evolution Soccer.

Fifa 21

In the previous series, FIFA 20, FIFA fans had to face new gameplay mechanics which for us were much more difficult. You have to use all the buttons on the gamepad (especially PS4) to play more optimally. This is what makes FIFA 20 very difficult to adapt for beginners and players who have been with this football franchise game from EA. Investigate, the latest FIFA game is back with FIFA 19 gameplay mechanics. So, what new things and significant differences are presented by EA in this latest soccer game?

FIFA 21 – Bringing Back the Lost Aspects

At the start of the PS5 demo, FIFA 21 was one of the first wave games released for the next gen console. However, because the current generation console still has a few more days, EA is still releasing this game on PS4, and the release is of course first. First of all, when talking about gameplay, there is something that was omitted that used to exist in FIFA 20, namely the off player movement which for some players this feature is quite troublesome.

This feature is quite troublesome because the mechanism is quite strange and boring. Players who are not holding the ball will look static. They will stay glued and do not guard players or look for empty areas on the field. Indeed, this mechanism makes the players more cognitively active than the previous series, but with this, FIFA 20 often frustrates the players.

In addition, what is improved from this game is its AI or artificial intelligence. For those of you who find FIFA 20 very frustrating because it is very difficult to attack, in this series the AI ​​attackers are smarter in finding the right position or avoiding offside when receiving a pass. However, what is very unfortunate is the imbalance between the attacking AI and the defensive line. Defenders are now very easily penetrated by opposing players or even hit by a counter attack.

Therefore, you have to work hard manually to keep your defense from conceding your goal. For some reason EA can’t provide a balance between the attacker’s AI and the defense. Our assumption is that EA hears more complaints about how difficult FIFA 20 is where defenders are very difficult to penetrate, rather than making everything equal. For you, breaking into the opponent’s goal will be easier.

Behind the poor AI defender, there are things that we think should be appreciated in this game, especially in the attacking aspect such as crossing or heading that is improved so that the opportunity to score a goal by making headings or crossings is more open. This is what we don’t feel in FIFA 20. In FIFA 20, it’s very difficult to score goals through headings or crossings.

In addition, dribbling in this game looks more realistic than FIFA 20. Drag back here will feel there is a longer pause and the movement will look slower. This is perfect for those of you who like to play with the style of shaking your opponent by dribbling.

Fresh New Features

In addition to the massively overhauled mechanism, EA also offers something new in this game, namely a new feature called VOLTA. Besides there is a Career Mode for those of you who want to play soccer simulation games, you can play a new mode that we think is very fresh, namely street-style ball. Actually, this feature already exists in FIFA 20, however, the overhaul of the mechanics will certainly provide changes to the mode. And, is this game worth buying? Actually, this game is quite feasible for you to try because of improvements, especially in terms of gameplay. However, if you think the PS4 version is in charge, then just wait a few more months for the PS5 version.
