Let me start off this review by saying I've always been a huge fan of Ronaldo. He's one of my favorite players in real life, and I've always loved using his card in fifa. Earlier in the year, I was lucky enough to snipe his rare gold card for 1.1 million coins, and he was an absolute machine. With a little over 200 games played, he bagged in almost 300 goals and close to 100 assists. When his TOTY card came out, I thought it was the perfect upgrade for my team, but boy was I wrong.
Right off the bat I noticed a difference, and it wasn't a good one. He felt sluggish, weak, and couldn't even finish easy chances. Even abusing green timed finesse shots didn't work with this card. It was an utter scam. I couldn't believe it as I played game after game with him, hoping he'd miraculously improve, but he just didn't. I eventually started forcing him the ball, just to make it seem he was playing good (which is why his goal to game is positive) but in reality, he missed more sitters than he scored. The craziest thing about this card was that I fell in love with his rare gold version shortly after buying it. He would score everything for me, from crazy bicycle kicks to outrageous volleys, but his 99 just wouldn't.
The worst thing about this card is the value. For 7+ million, he is not worth it, especially when you can get his (better) rare gold version for almost a quarter of that. He couldn't connect even the simplest of passes, and with 99 strength, still got out muscled by Davinson Sanchez. Surprisingly, his card just wasn't good, which ultimately led me to selling him for nearly an 800k loss and buying back his normal card. After 10 games with his normal card, I can finally say I enjoy him again. 10 games, 18 goals, 14 assists.
Just to clarify, this card isn't "bad" it's just not as good as his normal card, which is 5 million coins cheaper. Please do not make the same mistake as I did and buy this card, it just isn't worth the extra coins. For a card that is already insane, use your excess coins to upgrade elsewhere and keep your rare gold version (a.k.a. the best card in the game).
cool card design lol
keeping the ball
