A few words before the actual review
I know its already expired, but i am writing this review in behalf to change those players mind whom could use him but they dont. I want to clarify that i am a standard G2 player not a hardcore glitch/ game weakness abuser. So if you are still want to continue to read the article, thank you.
This card is one of the best RB that i have ever used in this game. Ive tried NIF Semedo / Walker and a few other good wing backs, and this card beats them easily. In the first few games it seemed he cant catch up to the opponents players, but after a dozen matches it worked pretty well. When i thought he is out of position and he dont make the interception, he did. He is a well rounded in defence/ dribbling stats, i didnt want to waste a shadow of him, so i used an anchor. Maybe a sentinel also do the job, but a guardian done an insane upgrade in his stats. I still wanted to max out the pace to make him fast as possible.
I played him in 8 chem because of the nation, but when FUTMAS Boulaya came out it pretty much make sense to use him with Atal. Unfortunately ( for the Boulaya) i have the Storyline Gelson Martins, which is crazy. - I think i will write a review on him someday then i paste the link here -
Atal could rapidly break into the midfield without any hasitation or losing the ball, but be careful due to the lower composure if you dont have a clear pass, its not worth it. 4 star SM makes harder to take away the ball from him and the passes with his 5 star weak foot are precise. I am not much of a crosser, but the ones that i did through the one side from the midfield to the other were very good, however the early crosser trait could be helpful if you are one.
Thanks to his pace this players always disturb the opponent gameplay (at least), and because his decent stats in the physical section he could keep the ball a while after a successful tackle and lead the other players attack to your favour. The stand tackles are amazing. When he catches up, he needs only a few moments beside the opponent player, and bumm, the ball is yours. I didnt noticed the slide tackles so outstanding, because i am usually not doing them.
If you have and you can put him in your squad, do it. This card is the most well rounded (in the needed stats for a RB) that i have ever seen this year.
- Weak Foot / Skill Moves wombo combo
- Well rounded / great with the right chemistry style
- Tricky to link without icons due to the nation (FUTMAS Boulaya / Mahrez could be helpful)
- Not an incredible game changer, but noticable
