    Simply put, the convenience of launching FIFA 21 without downloading can't outweigh the technical issues presented by Stadia as a platform. It feels harsh to say that Stadia is the only thing holding the game back, but there's no other culprit to be found when the core problem is the constant barrage of network issues. The reality is that Stadia is struggling with something as formulaic as FIFA 21, and that's legitimately troubling. It's yet another story of the highest highs and the lowest lows, and it spells further problems for the future of the platform.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is straight up trash. Passing is horrible. If you pass to someone, the ball goes to another player that is on the other side of the field. I get cards for tackling on the ball and I barely touched the player. Its amazing how they make it so bad. Props to trash EA. Expand

    No genuinely, it's the worst FIFA that has ever been made and their have been some bad ones.
    For reference, I'm a player that has been in division 1 for the past 4 years and have not ever been relegated in this time. This is for online seasons not the money making scam of FUT which I refuse to play out of principle.

    Current record this FIFA 21 on PS5 only: W-194 D-22 L-43
    (I have a much better record on PS4)

    Firstly the goalkeeping is poor, very static and never read the game. The way they move is as if they aren't aware of their position on the pitch in regards to the goal leaving large spaces and parts of the goal to shoot at. This is particularly noticeable when coming at them from an angle. The difference also in shot stopping between an 85 rated goalkeeper and a 90 is far too big, that difference should be all around positioning and reactions but actually it just means that 85's don't make the saves they should.

    Onto the defending. Well their isn't any. When setting up a team to play one of the things you kind of expect is that the team does actually do some defending. What actually happens is the offensive team has runners and defensive team doesn't so you end up with having to try and switch between players constantly to try and track runs but of course in doing that you leave no pressure on the ball. The whole of the middle of the pitch therefore is non existent or you can play a press in which if they beat the press they are effectively in on goal every time. This is the part of the game the developers have broken the most. It was okay in fifa 20, quite good actually, some people complained that the AI was involved too much but actually it probably wasn't. You wouldn't expect to just be able to run through a team without being tackled however on this one you most certainly can. Jockeying is now pointless because of the fluidity in attack and the fact that the response time on the jockey means it's actually detrimental to do. If you jockey and then try to time when to stop jockeying to make an interception or tackle the game isn't responsive enough to do that and effectively mistimes it. Tackling is better if you don't use the tackle buttons...genuinely.

    Attacking play is too scripted, there is one of 2 ways to goal. Use a player with incredible control and just flick the analogue stick back and forth and as the defending is so non existent the defender will either not make the tackle or give away a penalty even when you haven't tackled. I have received more penalties and conceded more in this FIFA than any other for that reason. The second option is basically the quickest front 3 you can find, all 3 players on get in behind and just play it into the front line, knock it back into midfield, all 3 set off, 1 ball through and it's a goal. This is made worse by the fact all defenders are seemingly slow and all strikers are too fast. Very few players that have ever played the game are as quick with the ball as they are without it. Even the likes of Salah and Mbappe when running with the ball at their feet in real life they will get caught by players slower and quite considerably. On this though once you're in, that is it it's game over. Really poor understanding of how pace actually works from the developers. Probably the reason there is as many as 12 goals in a game. Should never be the case. Oh yeah, and every player is 2 footed. You should see what Salah can do with his right foot. Special.

    Overall gameplay: It's really bad, cut scenes have been added in like last minute goals and animations for hitting the crossbar. Due to the developers spending time on getting that right, for some reason it has to happen constantly. Thanks for putting it in but maybe don't force the game to have this happen and just put the animations in when they actually should happen.

    Players aren't responsive to the ball, genuinely they will stand there unless kicked directly to them, what that actually means is that when you control a player sometimes they don't lock onto the ball at all. You have no control of what happens, a player will miscontrol it or just leave it unnecessarily. Passing is soooooo slow, their is absolutely no tempo to the games. Possibly due to the poor control of the players or because passes are often inaccurate.

    Referees. I had an open goal and was scythed down. Not even a yellow. Missed the penalty of course because for some reason they put it in the game that the striker looks blatantly where he'll put the ball. They will get decisions wrong. HUH ? It's a game, it's not fun or quirky to put in that the referees don't get it right.

    The whole game needs an overhaul, a lot of money is spent on FIFA by it's users and it's been completely mismanaged. If EA aren't good enough to develop a genuinely good FIFA game then give it to some developers that can.
