What can I say? This poty/tots Neymar is a strong contender for the best attacker in the game.
To put it in perspective I have used Prime Ronaldinho for over 400 games (and I love him), but this Neymar makes Ronaldinho feel clunky and slow by comparison. He is faster than TOTS sterling and comes out of skill moves faster than anyone I've ever seen. You know when you do a through ball and then quickly realise your attacker will never make it to that? Well Neymar seems to find away, he's the only player in the game I've used that has the ability to come from behind a fast defender and still overtake them to get through, time and time again.
His shooting is fantastic, either foot it doesn't matter. The shot power is ridiculous and his finesse shots rival tots Messi's, but Neymar can hit them just as well on either foot. I've scored some fantastic over the head volleys too, he just scores fun goals. His passing is excellent as you would expect, about as good as it gets really.
His dribbling is also a strong contender for best in the game, and I would definitely say this Neymar is the slipperiest player in the game, you can feel the opponents frustration trying to tackle him and he will draw a lot of fouls.
His Physical side is suprisingly good also, his stamina is incredible and will last well into extra time. He isn't extremely strong but It's a massive step up from his previous cards and he can hold of the weaker cbs and fullbacks to put himself through on goal, he hardly ever falls over.
Overall I think this Poty/Tots Neymar is maybe only surpassed by Prime R9 and 99 Ronaldo, he is easily on the same level as tots Messi if not better. With the WC mode coming I think his TOTS has even more of chance to drop and he will be even more of an absolute steal, he already is a steal at his current price but as I say it will likely fall over the week. I'm glad I managed to get his POTY for 800k when it was first realised (so now I'm guarenteed to pack him in my tots pack). Trust me when I say this is the most fun player in the game, and I'm not even a fan of Neymar in real life, you won't regret getting him. If anyone remembers his toty in fifa 16, this one is better than that.
