Player Review

96 - TOTS
By Basematthausvibes, 24-05-2021

My goodness. Where do I begin. I have always loved Romelu Lukaku. The name is fun to say, he's the definition of a tank, and the tenacity IRL is the stuff of legends. I have however, struggled to effectively use him in Fifa. I've found his past versions to be clunky, and a fairly one dimensional "Power Striker." I was shocked to get Lukaku in my 4th player pick, and while he didn't fit my squad at the time, after a few games, he's become the centerpiece.

I have paired him next to Fut Bday Atal, TOTS Suarex, WAMAN, and all alone up top. He has filled every role extremely well. Right Side/Left Side/Straight up the middle, he's been more than effective and an absolute joy to use.

22 goals in 10 games, and I imagine that average will only go up the more I get used to him. Romelu is a giant at 6'3, and the unique body type allows for him to muscle people off of the ball in ways I have not seen from any other cards in this game. The 4* weak foot is barely noticeable, but if you can get it to the left foot, it's magic.

Passing is really good, particularly in the short game. Dribbling is also very good. 5* skills would have been great, but truly unnecessary due to the other abilities of this card, particularly his "run through defenders" mentality.

If I'm being nitpicky, a shooting trait other than Power Header would have been a really nice bonus.

Overall & Ratings:

Run through Varane with the absolute tank of a lad, Romelu "can't stop the shine" Lukaku. With pace, shooting, and physicality as key traits, the Belgian legend will not disappoint you in any way.

Pace - 10

Shooting - 10

Dribbling - 9.5

Passing - 9.5

Physical - 11

Defending - NA

Best Position - ST

Best Chem Style - ENGINE

  • The physicality. The most noticeable signature trait of the card. He bullies anyone I've encountered off the ball, and usually with some flair that gets him in a position to score.
  • A rocket for a left leg. Just shoot it. Don't be afraid of the 4* WF either.
  • Dribbling. This mixed with his physical stats and an ENGINE chem style make him a top class mover and shaker by the net.
  • Passing. 97 vision. 96 crossing. 99 short pass. 89 long. 99 curve. *Boosted with ENGINE
  • Headers. 6'2. Power Header trait. 99 heading acc. 89 jumping.
  • Perfect link to NAINGGOLAN
  • A whole lot of shine that you cannot stop.
  • Price. If I didn't get him out of a PP, I never would have experienced the wonders of this card. But if you have the coins or a way to get there, absolutely worth it.
  • No shooting traits. My man's got the curve to compensate, but the card would be perfect with an OTF shot trait.

The complete striker!

If I would have to label one card as a complete striker, it would be Summer Stars Lukaku. I acquired this card and used him to complete the weekend league and he's been terrific! Let me say, it's already pretty difficult to express how crazy he is. First of all, it's tricky to pin down Lukaku's main strength. This guy is rapid, strong, an elite finisher, and his passing is top tier for a striker. Use his physicality...

Big Rom

All ill say is this, if you only use meta players and your defence is Mendy, Varane, Gomez and Semedo this guy probably isn't the best for you. This doesn't mean he's bad though. I'm only a div 3 player so i guess my opinion isn't the best but he is by far the most fun player I've played with in a while on FIFA in general and definitely my favourite in FIFA 21. If you want a fun player ...

Assolutamente fortissimo! 51 gol in 30 partite rivals e 17 assist. Pressa, vince tutti i rimpalli e butta dentro qualsiasi pallone. Per ora uno dei migliori attaccanti in game.
