I usually finish elite in fut champs but this past weekend I was down bad and fought for gold 3. Im a rank 1 div 1 player. I was bored and needed something to reignite the spark in my team, I sold a few of my players and in the 2 million price range I needed somebody who can play winger. I saw Kaka and I saw his stats and knew he would fit perfectly especially with his work rates. I was skeptical because I saw little comments about him and no reviews and the few I did find talked negative about his clunkyness and finishing. He was originally supposed to play winger but I tried him as a striker for one game and he scored 6 so i never looked back. Screw what people said, he is literally Neymar but taller, stronger, and with better finishing. You can see how i feel about him in the pros and cons but I will keep him on the team for a very long time. Definitely worth the price if you compare him to other primes like him hes on the cheaper side. Worth the coins, i bought him for 1.7 Million and he has truly changed my squad, currently 8-0 and with Kaka at the helm i feel good. Kaka can truly do it all, engine is the best for him in my opinion as that may help with how fluid and quick his feels and he still has elite shooting.
Has real face in game so no worries there.
Feels extremely fast despite his height.
Out of this world passing.
Amazing work rates.
Skills feel fluid with him.
Does not get bodied as easily as Neymar.
His size helps him win the ball back and he does not lose the ball easily.
Beautiful finesse shots.
Makes good runs.
His body type looks like it would feel clunky but he does not feel clunky at all imo.
Versatile, can player winger, striker and Cam.
Plays the full 120 with no issue.
As a person, nothing better than scoring with kind Kaka.
The occasional bad shot.
Every now and then has a bad touch.
Having packed Pirlo and selling him, I had reached 1.7 million coins. I scoured the icon market looking for a new player to try. Using freeze Marquinhos, there were few options and a Brazilian player was needed. That is when I found him: the best relatively cheap Brazilian prime icon. I am not lying when I tell you this but I have used many good ions this year so far. However, none even come close to Kaka. I've seen him receive a lot of hate for how he played on previous Fifa's but that in no way way represents how he plays this year. Let me tell you, there are few icons that are as physically imposing yet as slick as kaka. Read this review and find your own conclusion. But If you're looking for fun and results on this game when they are so hard to find, then this guy is for you.
Where do I start; well I will justify each part of the criteria given to me by futbin. Firstly pace, with 91 pace, many struggle to keep with kaka. If you're expecting him to be as fast as the likes of baby eto then you are setting your standards too high. That being said if you utilise his five star skills, he receives a literal speed boost after them. 9/10 for pace honestly could not fault him, official pace merchant.
Next we have shooting, Im not going to put too much in the pros for shooting as this is arguably his "con". Don't get me wrong 86 shooting is still formidable, the same as the like of mbappe and better than Neymar, who are two of the most used players in the game. Realistically I think it is down to Fifa that he received such poor shooting in comparison to how good he was in real life. Look at the con box for my thoughts on his shooting. 8/10
Passing was solid. playing him up front with freeze Gnabry, laying passes off were crucial. Kaka was perfect for that roll. I can not think in my 50 games of using him a time where he made one single bad pass. Only reason he is not getting ten out of ten is because in my opinion you have to be pulling off audacious insane cross-pitch passes. Unfortunately was not the role I brought him to the club for. 9/10 hell of a passer.
Oh my high heavens and sweet honeybuns. The dribbling is insane. Being six foot one you probably expect him to be a clunky bus. No throw that belief out the window. Use his five star skills do one flip flap and you'll have Joe Gomez, Varane, and Klostermann bow down to you and beg for forgiveness. I can not put into words how good at dribbling he is. Seriously the best I've ever used and the is solely why i'm writing this review. To give you an opportunity to get guaranteed elite with him in futchamps. 10/10 is the most you can give but you really can not put a cap on kaka's dribbling ability he's the gift that keeps on giving. 100000000/10
You're probably wondering 7/10 for defending wtf, well it is not so much his defending but his inability to lose the ball. If Varane steps in and breaks both of his legs he will rise up and get the ball back. He was literally impossible to dispossess and when he did he won the ball straight back. Obviously if you stuck him at the back he'd get ruined so 7/10 it is.
Finally his physicality. 6 ft 1 and new UNIQUE body style is why he is good now. previously had the high and average which means the player is a certified heavy good vehicle. Now that he has his own style he is insane. Agile and nimble but big enough to easily body defenders when they try and take his matchball off him that he already has bagged 6 with. 9/10
Shooting was good yes, but he deserved better from EA. Yes he bagged a lot for me but I just with they had respected him more. It definitely does not detract value from him and he never missed a sitter. Just some long range shots he might miss but I think that is understandable. 8/10
i completed the sbc with fodder i had saved up in my club, after using his baby i knew this card was going to be fire, the way he held off people with his body, his smooth dribbling, his insane finesse. this card has it all. im telling you even for the market price he is worth it. With the finisher chemstyle his finesse shots are inasane and very consistent ontop of that his shotpower is cracked. he is an all round beast. His fakeshot sprint boosts are broken because of his height and with his pace he is a force to be reckoned with. his passing in pristine, he hasnt got one pass wrong yet and i dont see him getting one wrong anytime soon. He can hold off players like a beast.
His pace for the CAM position is very good and he can make runs in behind with no problems and his running fakeshot is next level. So 9/10 for CAM
This guy definitely has icon shooting his finesses are on par with baby maradona and messi. He has incredible shot power and can 99% of the time finish in the box. (you arent getting better than that)
The passing on this card isnt insane but it isnt nor insane if you know what i mean. he has very consistent passing but nothing that will blow your mind. Perfect for a CAM
He was very surprising because as a 6,1 player i expect some sort of clunk from the player but i got none from kaka, he was a smooth as they come (WITH THE FINISHER) he was moving like a sheet of silk he was insane when it comes to dribbling his responsiveness was a 10\10. if you are worried about him not feeling good you have nothing to worry about. Keeping in mind i used him with a finisher.
Didn't use him in defense
He isn't anything insane because of the lack of aggression but he can hold off most players in the game, he just doesn't fight much when it comes to getting the ball back. .
extra note, because he is so tall he has interception reach so you get luck and intercept the ball quite often
Kaka is most definitely the GOAT in fifa 21 and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Let start it:
First and foremost, I believe that you have to use either an Engine or Finisher on Kaka to improve his agility and balance. After you do this, Kaka goes from 'he is good' to 'HE IS A BEASSTTTT!'
I bought Kaka for around 1.35 million (was a bit impatient but you can pick him up for around 1.2 on a Tuesday). But I can say he will stay in my team for a long long time. He is probably the best attacker for a skillful, fast, dribbling playstyle. I personally played him in a 442 as a second striker next to my Mbappe (sorry) and here is my setup:
Chem: Engine (10 chem)
Main stats boost: 95 pace (97 SPRINT SPEED), 95 dribbling, 94 passing
The main reason I bought him was:
1) I had spare coins
2) I needed a solid all rounded attacker that can play literally anywhere in the final 1/3, wings, upfront or as a CAM
Kaka's all rounded stats proved him the best of the rest. Kaka is a true Brazilian and you can feel it in the game with his flair and movement. To break it down:
Kaka with an engine becomes a pace monster. Besides Pace being META this year, as Kaka has a tall body he really does cover massive ground with his strides so you don't necessarily have to increase his pace but I used engine for other reasons and pace was a plus. With an engine he gets 95 acc and 97 sprint speed which is more than enough to outrun inspector gadget and his brother and mostly any CB in the game.
MY MY MY. Like I said before, a true Brazilian! combination of his 5* skill moves, agility boost from the engine chem style and his already amazing dribbling stats he is really swift on his feet. It will be a dancing on ice episode every game. 5* skills really give him the cherry on the cake. I have gotten through the toughest defenses including the 5 at the back rats with him, his pace coupled with the skills and movement is dangerous. Don't let his height or body fool you he moves like ballerina!
You may have doubts that with an Engine he doesn't have the shooting boost but if you are any good at finishing you will have no problem bagging goals with this guy from anywhere inside and around the box against any keeper. His base shooting is 86 which feels like 90 in game. His weakfoot has never been a problem as everyone knows anything above a 3* is basically a 5* weakfoot this year. I personally didn't feel the need to increase his shooting stats.
He his an assist king. His vision and passing is really accurate, with flair trait he really brings reliability. With Mbappe not being the best passer, Kaka really does all the work in the playmaking side of things but his pace allows him to nicely roll off if he had to go through on goal. The only time he will misplace a pass is if you misplace it.
it really doesn't matter but surprisingly, due to his big body, he intercepts many balls upfront especially if you put the pressure on. I have been able to catch defenders out using Kaka so its a bonus!
Hahahaha, I can only laugh because this man is so fake. He has hidden strength. I cannot pin if it is due to his body type or his height but this man turns into hulk when dribbling or trying to go through defenses. He has fended off the likes of VVD and Varane with ease. He really isn't easily pushed off the ball if you are good with the sticks. As for stamina, if you overuse him he will obvs get tiered but this is only when you might give him the ball 90% of the time which should be the case in good fifa anyways. Otherwise, I only ever had to sub him off once as he was tired which was also in the 105' min.
I highly recommend this Brazilian Beast. One of the best Prime icons out there and really fun to paly with. Fits the meta too.
- Hidden strength
- Hidden shooting
- Jammy (Bug player hahah)
- Won't want to face him!
I was really excited for this card since it was launched as SBC some weeks ago.
Despite the price range and many negative comments about it just because of its price, I was really decided to give it a try since I'm brazillian and Kaká is one of my favorite players ever.
I'm a PC player so this card using many fodder from packs saved for TOTY (almost a sheet promo btw) and from ICON SWAPs I had the chance to complete it for around 150/200k from my pocket. I don't remember how much I spent but I'm saying an estimate and for me it was totally worth it.
Positive points in depth:
Pace: if you love speed then engine or hawk or hunter chem style are the best options for you and this guy runs quiet well even being 6'1" tall. 97 acceleration and 95 sprint speed using Engine gave me a strong counter attack piece (even these stats not being fair since Kaká was one of the fastest players in his prime).
Shooting: my man, this guy can shoot. Despite of me using Engine chem style to boost his pace and agility/balance (he's a big guy and have 5* skills), his 86 shooting and finesse shot trait grants you a powerful finesse inside the box and outside the box (not so far). I used him as ST this is why I used Engine not Finisher and I wasn't disappointed. Almost every shot tried he buried so I can't complain. I played 25 matches (WL only) and he scored 22 goals and provided 25 assists.
Passing: just great as shooting is. Since I boosted it using Engine you can imagine how clinical this lad can be passing the ball to his fellow teammates. 96 vision, 95 short passing, 89 long passing and 99 curve grants you many options to build a counter attack. As I said before he's a big guy and can hold the ball quiet good and provide amazing passes.
Dribbling: engine or finisher chem style makes him perform smooth dribbles and despite being tall he can conduct the ball very good. I have Dybala 91 and Mahrez 88 and I can't see Kaká dribbling far from these lads. Rainbow flick, bolasie flick, every fookin' flick: he performs it all like a spider weaving its web.
Physcality: 87 stamina is enough for a 90 match even playing as a CAM. 78 strength suits well and his unique body type and height give him the ability to hold the ball even against strong CBs like Varane, VVD etc. Lacks aggression and jumping but that's ok for CAM. As a Striker I recommend you to not try headers.
Workrates: he is pretty aggressive (for looking spaces in the opponent defence and making runs towards the goal) and his perception of attacking is great even with 86 positioning using Engine. You can use him as well to come back to defence to help a little and his medium def WR should do just fine as a CAM.
CLOSING WORDS: superb card. Do not be afraid of its price or negative comments, try it in game. If necessary you can do the loan version before invest on this SBC. I know it is quite expensive in other platforms and after EA release Prime Moments I'm quite sure his PRIME version will be cheaper at the market (after the SBC expire as well). He is really the Kaká who shocked the world against Man Utd and that 2007 season which granted him the Ballon D'or. EA just messed up a little his shooting and pace but I think they will fix it on his prime moments version.
- Shooting (even with Engine chem style)
- Pace (even without Engine chem style as a CAM) as a ST
- 5* Skills and 4* WF that looks like a 5* for passing and shooting
- Pricey (depending on your platform: expensive)
This goes without saying. Only do this SBC if you have the fodder for it. I was able to do the sbc for only 400k because of the fodder I had within my club. I always wanted an icon and never before in any FIFA I'd ever owned one and so this year once I saw a prime kaka SBC I was gonna do everything I could to do it. After doing the SBC I put him straight into the team behind Gabriel Jesus and Hero Alex Texeira and that was the most disappointing perform ace I'd ever seen from a high rated card. I had Kaka at CAM and he was pretty much non existent the entire game. After the game I knew something had to chance so I switched him up to striker and boy was he a gamechanger. Five goals before the 30th minute. He is absolutely lethal in a two strike partnership role. I'd never had so much fun with a card. He has skill moves, pace, finishing, links with the best players, and is my favorite player of all time so it all worked out. I would've done this SBC for another million with the way he plays. I was struggling in mid division 3 but when I added him to my team I'm well on my way to D1. He is such a fun card to use and I can't recommend him enough if he fits your team. I really hope EA gives him the rating he deserves because he was one of the greatest midfielders of all time and his prime doesn't truly show how great he was.
- Unique body type
- Finesse Shot trait
- occasional miss
- will get bodied off the ball by strong defenders in a 1v1 situation
- stamina hurts him when he plays in midfield
- He deserves a much higher rating but that's not really a con
He is absolutely quality. He has defo entered my fut champs team over coutinho. Coutinho is very good but something about this card and icons just makes them funner to use, he is rapid and insanely good at dribbling. Not only that he has very solid passing and can give some nice through balls to my majestic tots haaland that sits at st. He feels like an absolute god ingame however out of game he doesn't look amazing with the shooting, agility and balance etc... Trust me, he is a hell of a player and will 100% improve your team. I mean he will never be a problem for links so I he can fit anytime and with that, carry any team.
Finesse shot trait
Links (Brazil and Icon)
Agility and balance could be better
Jumping and heading accuracy
Long passing could be better
Finishing could be higher
