I don’t think anyone can argue against Cristiano being the best gold card of Fifa 19. Amazing runs, lethal shots and of course far post headers for days. In the first few weeks of Fifa 20 some people have been claiming that the likes of Mbappe, Messi and Neymar could prove themselves to be more useful this year. I’ll present my take on whether CR7 is worth his price tag of 1,4M, which probably will rise a lot over the coming months.
There’s one simple reason that I’m able to write this review - I packed him. Packing CR7 is something that simply doesn’t happen, but in my first WL rewards it actually did. A first owner Cristiano is nearly impossible to obtain, so I decided not to sell him and immediately built a squad around him. Worth mentioning that I’ve played him in a 300k squad, and I’m just a gold 2 player, so don’t take my review too seriously.
You don’t need me to tell you that he is fast, strong and has great ball control and finishing ability, you can check his stats by yourself. Being the second highest rated player in the game, he will obviously feel great in game in almost every aspect. We want to know if he is worth the price and will he make a difference?
Key pro: Finishing
When you buy CR7 you’re getting the best and most reliable finisher in the game, excluding icons. Just like in real life, Cristiano is arguably the most complete striker there ever was. Whether you like to play counter attacks, possession, crossing, spamming skill moves - you can’t go wrong with this guy. He bangs in goals that I certainly don’t deserve to score. Driven shots, power shots, finesse shots like I haven’t seen since POTM Son in Fifa 17. People saying headers are impossible to score this year and that 1v1s are inconsistent- Cristiano disagrees. He knows exactly where to be and if you find him with a pass he is more likely to score than not.
Key con: Balance
No review is reliable without at least one negative. Looking at his in game stats, the 71 balance is the one to pop out as a potential negative. And to be fail, he doesn’t feel like he has more. If you’re the guy that likes to spam fake shot stops and drag backs and probably goes ”Ooh! Haa!” when doing so, you’ll not get the best out of him and are better off getting someone like Neymar or Mertens. Engine will boost his balance quite nicely and I haven’t found it to be a problem myself, but if there is one aspect that could be improved, it’s his balance.
I don’t want to make a statement saying that he is absolutely worth it. It depends, if you’re a guy with 1.5M liquid and is looking for the most competitive squad possible, you’re likely not get the best result from buying CR7 and surround him with a mediocre squad. But when you use him, you’ll certainly feel the 1.4M (or whatever) coins every time he touches the ball or gets a scoring opportunity. Is he worth twice as much as Neymar? Maybe he is, maybe not, but he surely is something else.
well, i got ronaldo for 1.5 mil , thought about his price alot, however when i tried him , he was a beast.
eventhough fifa 20 needs very fast players, ronaldo was always there to sprint, he was surprisingly pacey enough to go through players like virgil and varane.
we all know how good is, but believe me he was clinical in-front of goal, and his finnesse shots were incredibly op, banging top bins ,however, i recommend to use the curved driven shots when being outside the box especially in the middle
he got 9 assists in 13 games even when he played next to mertens and dybala which had better passing stats than him, but he got the most assists out of them, his short passing and fancy passes where deadly and fun,
with 71 balance which was my major concern, i didnt feel that he lacks it, he was light and fast when dribbling and skilling through players that had good defending stats which amazed me the most
i can only say that he defended and cleared the ball a couple of times when opposition had a corner which made me feel good about his heading because i barely use his jumping or heading accuracy stats
he was strong enough to push fullbacks when being on their side but i suffered abit when i faced good defenders which had better aggression than him
i really recommend buying him if you had a serie a or a icon player next to him, he is a real beast
