this is it, i am going to write my first review after playing this game since fifa 15.
my favorite player has always been hulk tots in fifa 15, fast, strong, and his shot was ibra's shot squared. unfortunately, Hulkmoved to China, so I have missed more than 3 years. fifa 19 meant his return, and believe me, he has never been as good as his Carniball Fut 19 card.
his pace is very decent, but don't expect him to outpace garage or vvd. that's why i recommend using him as a striker or cam, instead of at the wings. his pace could be a problem there, but i see absolutely no problem using him as a striker and smashing them goals in.
his longshots speak for itself; 95 longshots combined with 99 shot power. it literally feels like as if god just picked me up and took me to heaven.
kinda surprised with his passing. absolutely felt i was using pirlo, only 83 passing but his through balls and long balls over the top were incredible.
decent dribbling, nothing special here. can be clunky sometimes but he doesn't turn like a bus. just don't expect him to dribble past opponents like messi.
lets just say, he's no virgil van dijk.
oh men, this is fun. his hold up play is just wonderful. the way he shields the ball is like watching mr Bean back when i was 8, just funny to see how the opponent tries to get the ball, and hulk outmuscles players. really good part of hulk, which makes him, together with his shooting, an absolute monster.
if you are able to complete him, why are you still reading this, go and get him !!
shooting again because it's so good
passing is surprisingly good
3* weak foot is not the best, but it aint that much of an issue
What a player i'm playing him in an advanced midfielder role and he works perfectly has a solid touch can get past a player and when players try and tackle he fends them off with his strength like they aren't there. For the first few games i struggled with him getting to grips with his ideal playing style his defending isn't great and i realised this when i played a 4-3-2-1 and stuck hulk as a casual CM expecting him to do usual duties of a CM , he was great BUT when we lose the ball the side he was playing was just a run through the midfield unless it was a shoulder to shoulder scenario which Hulk would usually come out on top. I believe his ideal position is CF however CAM works the trick too.
His strength is undeniably one of his best features, as he's a unit in midfield
Shot power . a 1 on 1 is a goal with the shot power he has he fires it in its great to pull off a green finish with him and just watch it fly in
He's not my No.1 but he can take a free kick i let him have a few free kicks over my usual De Bruyne and He did tuck away a few with his longer than normal run up
I find with Hulk and the strength he has he should bully defenders more in the air not just on the ground
Defending , well obviously he isn't a holding midfielder and shouldn't really be played in CM
It's hard to keep the ball under control i don't know why but his touches are usually heavier than normal CAM's but it's usually fine but can get frustrating
In this review we look at the pretty promising card of Carniball Hulk. His SBC dropped on friday and will be available till next friday. I paid about 240K for this Card and if you have some Untradeables u can get him for even less. For me his IG highlights were his 99 shotpower combined with his 95 longshots as well as his 96 strength. I used the Hunter chem style on him to boost his Pace but i think you could also go for something that boosts his agility, depending on your playstyle.
I used him in the team mentioned above as the left CAM. I played Ibra up front with Roo behind him and Inaki on the right. My two CDMs were Telles and Gerrard while i played Azpi as a LB and Rijkaard and David Luiz as the two CBs.
In my first 10 Games with him he managed to score 4 goals and assist another 3. Those were all Divison Rivals games in Divison 3. In the end i was on 4 game losing streak, which pushed down his numbers a little bit.
Pace 8.5/10: With the Hunter chem style he gets to 97 acceleration and 96 sprint, so theoretically he was pretty much maxed out. He felt a little bit slower though (more like the 94 of Ibra with Hunter), but this could also be because of his body, which reminds me of our lord and saviour Akinfenwa. He will get to the through balls you play to him, but dont expect him to outrun the likes of Varane or Ferdinand.
Shooting 9.5/10: Together with his physicality this is his best stat. With the Hunter chem style he gets 91 positioning and 92 finishing, not touching his shot power and his longshots. His longshots are mental. Id say he has the 2nd best longshots in my team (only behind Roo). A little downside is, that i have no other player that hits the crossbar or the post as much as he does. In theory, his 3* weak foot isnt a problem, because he can still produce bombs with it, but every single fifa player knows that he is left footed, so you have to play pretty patient to get off a good shot on goal.
Passing 9/10: I cant say too much about his passing because he was more like a finisher and crosser for me rather than a creator. But he nearly never made a bad pass, while his crosses (probably also because of his shotpower) were very accurate and strong and i could score quite some headers with my tall guys up front.
Dribbling 8/10: This is probably his weakest significant stat.He does have 78 agility, but because of his size he still feels clunky. I think you could get rid of that by applying an engine chem style on him, but i havent tried it out myself yet. His 64 Balance on the other hand wasnt a problem at all. His ballcontrol and dribbling were also quite good. With his 87 reactions he scored quite some goals after the first attempt got blocked and as i already mentioned above, he missed some chances, which was mainly due to his 81 composure.
Defending N.A.: Because i played him as a left CAM, i cant tell too much about his defending. He was good at chasing down the RBs and once he got to an opponent, it could often happen that he simply pushed them away. I think you cant really ask for more from a CAM.
Physical 9.5/10: One of his stand out stats. For a CAM his physicality is incredible. His jumping isnt the best, so when he gets covered by a tall CB, he wont get above him. But because of his 96 strength and 86 aggression, he can push away a lot of defenders and get himself the chance for a header or get control of the ball.
Summary: If you have about 1-5 mil on your account, i can definitely recommend him to you. The summary of his stats are simply unmatched for his price. But he wont solo win you games, so if you cant buy other good players around him, there are better options.
Thanks for reading my review and please let me know if you liked it or hwo i could improve!
