Create more scoring opportunities with all-new dynamic attacking systems in the most intelligent FIFA gameplay to date. A new Agile Dribbling system gives you the means to unleash your creativity in 1-on-1 situations. Use fast footwork, more responsive close control, and new skill moves like the ball roll fake to explode past defenders. In FIFA 21, increased positional awareness elevates footballers’ in-game intelligence to put them in the right place at the right time. See world-class forwards hold their runs in line with the last defender, creative playmakers find space to play through balls, and midfielders shut off passing lanes as players better live up to their real-world understanding of space and time on the pitch.

    FIFA 21 is great. The small refinements make the biggest impressions this year, and I’m excited to see how the next-gen versions pan out. It’s finally good to be a Career Mode player again, and I just hope that over the coming years we see a bigger focus on Volta and less on pushing players into paying for FUT coins.

    The online games feel fresh. But the gameplay changes are only in the details, since years the FIFA series is based on the same formulas. FIFA 21 clearly lacks innovation.

    While FIFA 21 plays a lot smoother than its predecessor and offers even more content for the fans of career and VOLTA mode, it once again feels like an evolution not a revolution. EA Sports really need to breathe new life into their football simulation. But maybe that will only happen, as soon as the franchise arrives on next gen consoles.

    FIFA 21 fixes some on-pitch issues, though it stops short of giving the series the meaningful overhaul it needs.

    Without losing all of its qualities, FIFA is once again struggling to correct its gameplay flaws and will have to wait at least for a substantial update, or more likely a new opus to hope to convince us on this point.

    The few positives do not outweigh the negatives. EA Sports continues to phone it in with the FIFA series while single-player gamers cry out for better options.

    Too many bugs, too much dynamic difficulty. Nothing improved over fifa 20. Maybe it's worth trying PES...

    Same garbage every year. No new cool features, still shameless recycling of the older games. I hate it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Absolute trash! Everything that was ever bad about FIFA is back in this game. I really dont know how it was possible to be worse than FIFA 20 but they managed it. Tired of this engine, tired of the same stuff every year and tired of getting PS4 ports Expand
