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.

    Chances are that you’ll already know what you’re getting into with FIFA 21; while it may be broadly similar to last years effort in its game feel, with a few good tweaks and subtle changes, that’s kind of to be expected with an annualised sports franchise. The improvements that have been made across some of the modes are welcome, and offer up new ways to enjoy the series. It’s also rather lovely to look at, and should be a fine showcase for the upcoming Series X|S come launch day!

    FIFA 21 says goodbye to Xbox One with the best game (in playable terms) of the saga. The amount of game modes overwhelms and it will reach different types of public.

    FIFA 21 keeps evolving the franchise's formula, with meaningful improvements in the Career mode and in FUT and VOLTA modes multiplayer, and refined gameplay. It needs a presentation and technical refresh, though, which we hope will come with the next-gen edition of the game.

    FIFA 21’s numerous small improvements make it the best in the series by default, but compared to recent entries in the series it’s easily the least revolutionary, with no major new modes or features to speak of.

    FIFA 21 doesn’t have any ground-breaking new modes or revolutionary gameplay innovations, but it doesn’t need them to impress. The plentiful tweaks to gameplay and AI, along with worthwhile new features spread across all primary modes, accumulate to make FIFA 21 a must-have for football fans. And if they’re planning on picking up a next-gen console in the near-future, there’s possibly even more for them to look forward to.

    It took an entire generation, but I am delighted to see Career mode finally have its moment in the spotlight in FIFA 21. The changes to Career are all for the better, even if some still feel rudimentary, and it breathes new life into a staple that has felt somewhat ignored. The rest of the package comes across as both the culmination of a generation and a cross-gen game.

    FIFA 21 smells like laziness, dollar signs and stinky, old footballsocks. This is the worst edition ever and one of the biggest disappointments of the year. I really hope EA redeem themselves on the next generation of consoles because the way things stand now, FIFA is one big red flag for me.

    Honestly anyone who is leaving a terrible review on this game is ignorant or just bad at the game. The game play is the best of any FIFA IHonestly anyone who is leaving a terrible review on this game is ignorant or just bad at the game. The game play is the best of any FIFA I have played (I started on FIFA 12). Fast players can NOT blaze by defenders if you play against them correctly. Legacy defending (pre RB+A) is much more heavily emphasized, so anyone who relied solely on letting the AI defend for them as many many people did in the past few editions of FIFA (i.e. the people leaving bad reviews and saying the game is terrible) will struggle. Goalkeepers do leave a little to be desired, and I have had some minor server issues. People leaving bad reviews are also clearly not Career Mode players, which has received major upgrades. As I said before, people leaving bad reviews are more than likely RB+A defenders who are just bad at the game now. Go play something else. You’re toxic. Expand

    Another perfect example of why you can’t trust any of the games media. They are just extensions of the publishers public relations teams. TheAnother perfect example of why you can’t trust any of the games media. They are just extensions of the publishers public relations teams. The game is a copy&paste **** show. Solely designed around micro-transactions. With less actual features than years prior. Expand

    I just absolutely despise this trash game. I don't even have 75 characters for this.
