Gianluigi Buffon - 98 - Premium SBC
5.0
Buffon!
By Superluckysargie, 22-07-2018

This review is based on games in the WL.


First couple of experiences with Buffon were pretty much the same most other reviews I have seen on this page - I found that thinking I had a 98 rated keeper behind me made my defending sloppy and I basically let my opponent have shots being far to confident. After those 2 horrendous loses that (I was sure were Buffon's fault )I started to treat him as any other keeper and defend solidly. From then on I realised how amazing this guy actually was! I found he would reflex save or dive to save 9/10 shots occurring inside the box with the speed to recover and save any second shots my opponent would try and sweat. He has the speed to deal with any dangerous through balls (I did find you would have to call him out) and has the throwing and kicking ability to initiate dangerous counters.


Low Driven shots - my experience is mixed - not having the trait Save with Feet on a GK often turns my stomach as early in FIFA 18 Low Drivens were the bane of my life. All I can say is some have gone in but I have had a stand out moment where I was caught on the counter following a corner in the 85-90th minute and tots Lozano was galloping unpressured 1v1 with Buffon and this gem managed to save the Low Driven shot and maintained my 2-1 lead.


Overall I'd recommend - he's made a impact on my gameplay and may do so for you!

Buffon... who doesn't like him?

So, finally a Buffon special card that is worth trying. Since my defense usually sucks, I am very dependent on a good keeper. I tried a well known legend this Weekend League: Gianluigi Buffon, the man, the legend. He was doing extremely good in the first 10 games. No mistakes at all and only low driven shots were able to get though my Italian bulwark. Bonucci and Ma...

Horrendously bad one of the very worst

DO NOT DO THE SBC for this guy he looks amazing but believe me he is absolutely terrible, barely makes a save practically everything goes on, after 2 games i was already sick of the fool but i stuck with him to see of he would improve but NO, the only use for this guy is another sbc other than that just a total waste of time how EA can make a goalkeeper of this standard this bad is beyond belief and there is better bronze g...
