Wow. Gameplay is genuinely horrific. Spoke to someone who reckons it’s the worst FIFA to be released in a while and I’m inclined to agree, could write a list as long as my arm about the in game issues.

it's not great. There's loads of little issues with it as you say that for a game as big as FIFA shouldn't even have.

It’s all about pace yet again

That's the case with all of them isn't it?

Doing a bit more Ultimate Team this year so far. Not playing online matches as simply put, I'm just not good enough, but I'm enjoying doing Squad Battles and some of the friendly modes.

Just finishing the full download because it's half term and I'm bored. Probably going to play a bit of Ultimate Team but mostly just squad battles and not much online because I enjoy the collecting players aspect of the game mode but I have an awful combination of being too competitive to accept defeat whilst also not wanting to become the sweaty bastard you need to be to prevent that failure. Needless to say the RNG and bullshit game mechanics of FIFA bring out the worst in me as a gamer. 

I played a couple of the friendly games against the AI earlier while the rest of the content finishes downloading, I didn't mind the gameplay to be honest.

I must say I've enjoyed this version so far. The AI is clearly set for late drama but other than that its been a good game.

Defending against the AI I’ve finally figured out. Never control your CB’s when defending. If the AI tries to play wide and either attack the full back or deliver a cross, control a midfielder to defend inside the box to prevent either of that happening. Breaking them on the counter is their weakness

Yeah I never try to defend with cb’s, unless it’s a back 3

Surprised at that tbh, so much wrong with in game play. Changing players to who you want is impossible, if you get caught on a counter and have multiple defenders it will never change to who you want it, when that happens they skip past you

I've had that problem at times but its no where near as frequent as it was on the last game. Id go as far as saying the last Fifa was the worst Fifa I've ever played. Which is bizarre given they should be making the most out of the potential of the current consoles.

Yeah. Nothing is more infuriating when you want to control a CM but it picks a CB and you accidentally move him out of position

Definitely agree about the pace aspect. I've started a Career Mode with Chicago Fire in the MLS. First couple of games were tough but got a few points. Then I bought Eddie Nketiah from Arsenal and he's scored 3 hattricks in 3 games solely because of his pace.

One grievance with FIFA21 is the fucking training in Career Mode. Hate it.

Champions League freezes and restarts after GW2 on my game. Another issue I imagine they won't resolve as it doesn't make them FUT money.

What a bloody joke, thought that one was just me when I played it the other day. It's not fixed in the latest update for PC so it'll be a while if they do!

They didn't bother fixing it at all in the last game so I doubt they'll do anything.

For anyone interested, EA are giving out a David Beckham card for Ultimate Team on FIFA 21 when you play between 15th December to 15th January. Except on Switch as EA couldn't care less about that.

I genuinely regret spending money on this, the tackling is just terrible. Slow and ineffective, tell me how I can put 4-5 past the computer every game whilst counter attacking and concede a shitload at the same time. I’m not going all out attack, I’m hitting them on the break with 2-3 players. It’s just so bad, like refund level bad. I’d just prefer FIFA20 with a kit/player update

Hows PES this year?

PES is basically a minor upgrade form what I read, though they haven't had the cheeky to charge full price for it.
