Puskás is a card I have been meaning to look at for some time now. But with the constant promo options continuing to have more and more insane statistics while falling to ridiculously low prices it was becoming an ever-increasing challenge to fit the Hungarian in. However, if you read the Coman review then you will know that this impromptu midweek review would have suited a card like this perfectly. There were not as many options released and with a continuous train of cards becoming fodder the options for SBCs have become endless. Upon release, the difference between the market and SBC version of Puskás was minimal and offered the opportunity to grind as opposed to buy. Since then, the market has plummeted even further creating a near 400k difference for any interested parties to consider. For me, this review was about two things. Report back on the price tag, providing my thoughts on whether or not the price is right… And to finally get a chance to use this legend of the game, determining whether EA has done him the justice he deserves. With all of this in mind, it was 15 matches as the striker in my 4-2-2-2 formation that faced Puskás, while the ENGINE chemistry style seemed the only logical selection to propel him forward through the review. Ferenc Puskás provided the legendary flair all review long in the following squad:
While Coman killed my opponents with pace, this card killed them with quality. Immediately it is clear on screen that Puskás has a stocky body type and I would be lying if I didn’t say I was nervous. The game is generally not friendly to these cards and will create a clunky response to left stick dribbling. However, within minutes it was also clear that Puskás was an exception to this rule and that the review was going to have some surprises in store throughout.
Main Statistics - Dribbling
Pace Rating: 9/10
Dribbling Rating: 10/10
Skills: ★★★★★ Traits: Flair
If there was one area that the body type affected Puskás in performance, it would be the pace. The 99 ACCELERATION & 98 SPRINT SPEED are literally not up to speed and it couldn’t have been more obvious than alongside Coman. While the Frenchman was blistering opponents for pace, I found Puskás was often hindered by his lack of top end speed specifically. Similar to cards I have reviewed in the past, once you have figured out the formula, you can make corrections and anticipate defenders catching you in sprinting situations… But you still wish you didn’t have to. However, in situations where defenders did catch the Hungarian it was nice to know that I could twist and turn back into dangerous attacking positions using his ridiculous dribbling. The body type was a non-existent factor as the near perfect dribbling statistics let you dance on the ball. 98 BALL CONTROL & 98 COMPOSURE are the only outliers from perfect and they may as well have been given the results. This card is brilliant on the ball.
17 goals and 10 assists in 15 matches against the competition I was up against was a true striker's performance. I had Puskás dropping back into deeper roles and connecting my build up play, which turned out to be a key to my team's performance. The previously mentioned dribbling was vital to turning away from challenges as my opponents tried to pressure my possession… And then the incredible passing took over from there. This card has some of the best passing I have used in a long time… It was noticeable, accurate, and devastating to my opponents. While the 10 assists are a great return, they barely scratch the surface of how good the 99 VISION, 99 SHORT PASSING & 96 LONG PASSING functioned in game. It was a similar result for the 17 goals that Puskás amassed in 15 matches. Near perfect on the left, Puskás was lethal and at one point I had to double check that he did not have the finesse shot trait. But despite the 99 FINISHING, 97 SHOT POWER & 96 LONG SHOTS it still wasn’t enough to overcome the 4 STAR WEAK FOOT, which was less than perfect on his right,
Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad
Value/Coins Rating: 4/5
Good vs Bad Rating: 5/5
If you are like me then high rated fodder is a non-issue. The constant recycling into 85 x 10 SBCs has resulted in a lot of high tier additions and fodder accumulation. There is something to be said for putting that fodder into a card like Puskás that you know will perform. In fact, if I was completing a 93+ PIM ICON and got Puskás I would be well pleased. Yet, there are still just so many cards that are currently at or around this level for ridiculously cheap prices. Even the quality that this card operates at cannot overcome some of the cards currently available.
There is not much else to say about this card. I did find issues with the 80 STRENGTH and it was a good thing that the dribbling helped avoid a lot of shoulder to shoulder contests. I was hoping that the body type would help bolster the 172cm | 5’8 size, but it didn’t do much at all. Given how fantastic the dribbling was there are options to avoid tackles, but once they happen it is game over.
Fun card with tons of nostalgia. Immaculate left foot and wizardry on the ball. Slight lack of pace and noticeable weakness. All in all, it comes down to price and the fact that for 800k you can build an entire squad that would hold its own in Weekend League. If you are wanting a guaranteed return for your fodder then this is certainly a quality option, but other than that it might just be a card to avoid despite the high quality performance I witnessed during the review. Hoping you are safe and well. Cheers for reading.
After somehow packing tradeable Prime R9 from Fut champs rewards last month, I've tried out quite a few of the top players in the game. (Toty Mbappe, Prime Cruyff, R9 etc.) This Puskas perhaps tops the lot. His left stick dribbling is exceptional and reminds me of Toty Messi but with a bit of extra heft that the stocky body type provides. As a long suffering FIFA player, this card reminds me of players like Toty Robben in FIFA 15 and Tots Ibra in FIFA 16, such that he's so much better than the opposition that it feels like cheating. He just glides past defenders. The upgrade to 5*4* is a game changer, with skill moves coming off clean and fast. His shooting is arguably the best on the game, the definition of auto shooting - I try to time them but even white shots fly in from everywhere. His passing is fantastic too and his movement/ attacking AI is insane. I've never seen a striker move so intelligently depending on the situation. Though a 5* wf would be the cherry on top, the outside foot shot trait and overall shooting insanity somewhat negate the additional advantage that would offer. Just over 5 million is a lot of coins and expensive players generally provide diminishing returns, but this man is levels above. You won't be disappointed. Used in champs (rank 3) and Elite rivals.
I'd like to prelude this review with a little context and to apologize for any potential spelling/grammatical errors, as English isn't my native language. Whenever I started playing this FIFA about 2 weeks after release I always had my eyes on this special player right here.
I was very intrigued by his real life story, how he was unable to play after leaving Hungarian football and the general impact he had on the game even at a later age, when he lit up Spain and Europe paired up with the equally legendary Alfredo Di Stefano. Add to this how unique of a player he is in FIFA, I wanted to get my hands on any version I could for quite some time.
When the SBC for his Prime dropped a while ago I completed it instantly, and he proved to be a formidable force in my attack for quite a while. I did the 93+ moments SBC a few days ago hoping for something good or useable at least, but I would've never imagined to see the Hungarian flag appear, and my absolute dream player to walk out. Save to say I was elated(dupe theory proven once more btw). Having used him for 41 games in Elite division on Next gen Xbox, I feel compelled to write my first ever review on Futbin, due to how special of a player he is.
This card is quick, seriously quick. He will get caught on rare occasions but he comfortably outpaces most CBs you will come up, against, leaving the likes of FB Varane or Joe Gomez in the dust. If this guy gets even a modicum of space he will exploit it with his crazy initial burst of pace.
The major flaw with his Prime was obviously the 3 Star WF, a Problem this card doesn't have. Due to his 97 shot power any shot on his right will feel as if it's actually a 5 Star WF in the box, and he's even scored from outside the box with his right for me on occasion, something the Prime simply isn't capable of. His left foot is simply automatic though, absolutely the most lethal finisher I have ever used. Outside foot shots and Finesses are just broken on his left and he's capable of scoring from pretty much anywhere in the final third with them if you have enough space. This is probably the very best aspect of this card.
In the squad I linked I have Puskás on the drift wide instruction in order to get him into positions where he can cross the ball to CR7, a job he honestly excels at. I've also tried him on an engine and it makes his crosses or long passes that much better still. I imagine he has good enough passing to a point where you could also use him a playmaker deeper in the field or a winger even, I feel his finishing prowess would be wasted there however. Nontheless this guy can hit any pass you ask of him with pinpoint precision 9 times out of 10, hence the rating.
Probably the biggest improvent over the Prime besides the WF upgrade was the added balance, with the obvious addition of the 5 Star SM. Hitting those skills with Puskás gives you that little bit of extra space you need in the box to win those tight games sometimes. Additonally he just feels so silky smooth on the ball, being able to change direction quickly and leave defenders tackling air, just like he did in that magical 6-3 victory over England at Wembley, the game this card is inspired by. EA really did do his performance Justice in that respect.
Obviously he's no Weghorst or CR7 in terms of his physical strength, I've still found him to have that BS factor sometimes where, no matter what my opponent does they will not be able to outmuscle Puskás. I suppose this is the stocky Body Type paying dividends, note that he does get outmuscled by dudes like Varane sometimes though. Using a Hawk also helps here, and I'm still torn myself on whether to stick with Hawk or Engine. Stamina really isn't an issue at 93 for me either, he won't be gassed until the end of a 90 minute game unless you just sprint up and down the field with him.
All in all he is simply streets ahead of his prime, and any other attacker I've used this year. Is he end game? I do believe he is, comfortably so.
So this section is dedicated to cons, and I honestly have no Idea what to write here. Lack of a 5 star WF doesn' hurt him in the slightest and he'd probably be the most broken card ever if he had it. Adressing his price perhaps, would he be worth the 3.3 Million coins he is going for on Xbox? I don't know really, but it's more so that I don't like investing that many coins into just one Player in general. If you do have the coins though and you want to get a Player with it I say you can go for it, he has really blown me away thus far, and I'm sure he will blow you away too!
I hope you enjoyed reading through this rather long winded review of mine, wishing only the best to everyone who has taken the time to read this!
So I had around 4 mil coins after some good prem tots rewards and I needed a CAM to complete my squad. I looked at Pele prime or mid, Cruyff prime, and Captains Di Natale, who I had all used and liked in the past, and decided that I'd like to try something new since this game cycle is slowly coming to an end. Enter prime icon moments Puskas. From the little tank build to the black boots and the crazy shooting animations, he looks the part and is just fenomenal to use. Everything he does just feels top class, amazing passing, broken shots, gliding pace, tight dribbling, really the complete CAM. He's one of those players that just makes your squad nicer to look at, like you just want to spend hours just staring at him at the top of your formation. On to specifics though:
His positioning pace and dribbling are immediately apparent. He gets away from the likes of varane, toty marquinhos, tots van dijk with ease, both out running them and appearing in goal scoring positions around them. He is among the fastest players I've used this year, I'd say it's a solid 9.5 in pace. His dribbling reminds me of a toty Messi and the 5 star skills just add that much needed touch of unpredictability to his attack. With the skills and weak foot upgrade he just feels like a completely different card to his previous versions, as he opens up entirely new possibilites on the attack. His shooting is among the most broken i've used this year, which includes the likes of Prime Eusebio, Toty Mbappe, and 94 R9. His left foot is god sent and absolutely smashes any type of opportunity. Finally, he actually shields the ball much better than i'd anticipated. He'll still get bodied sometimes just like any other attacker but not to the rate my prime eusebio does, he's much better in that regard.
In terms of Cons, none really. If he had a 5 star weak foot hed be the perfect card. Maybe a finesse shot trait too but he still buries his finesse shots from every angle so not really necesary. Deep into extra time he wont have amazing stamina but unless you're spamming runs he'll still be very fresh most of the game.
I'm hungarian, so I couldn't resist the urge to do his sbc. I had tons of fodder, so I didn't spend too many coins on it. On his first 2 games he scored seven goals, now he averages about 1.5 goals per game. With Hawk chem style he's so rapid that nobody can catch up to him. His left stick dribbling is amazing, even though people complain about his stocky bodytype. I don't really use skills, but if I do they always come out perfect with Puskás. Passing and defending is enough for a striker, I never had any problems with them. Physicality is just about enouh to not get pushed around by defenders. And oh boy, his shooting. Every single one of his shots go in the back of the net (if it doesn't get autoblocked). Overall, he is a great striker and you won't find a better one for this price.
Where do I begin?!? You'll be hard pressed to find a flaw on this card other than his height and lack of a 5* WF, but other than that this card is INSANE. I've been playing FUT since FIFA '14 and I'm typically a division 1-2 player and I must say, this might be the best striker I've ever used in the series. This year, I've also used TOTY Mbappe, TOTY Ronaldo, Mid Cruyff, and Mid R9 for comparison and PIM Puskas is on his own level. He's smooth as silk on the ball, absolutely clinical in front of goal, and his stocky build with god tier dribbling stats make him able to slide through and hold off defenders with ease. For around 3.3 million coins (on Xbox) I would say this is an absolute steal of a deal. If you're on the fence about buying PIM Puskas, I cannot recommend him enough. Buy him you will not regret it. Enjoy!
-Height and body type make him both shifty and strong
I play fast possession based football. Almost no high flying long balls or crosses, so I choose my attackers mostly on the smaller, agile side.
They just dont need to shield the ball to defenders ... they just skill away, run away or pass the ball...
In my attack 3 (352 and 41212-2) there were Puskas, Di Natale Captain and Garrincha Moments. (Marcelo Captain went to CM role, but has now took puskas role very successfully)
I tried Puskas on all 3 positions in my rivals and champs games last and this week.
Best position was right striker for me.
Garrincha stands on top of all 3, his agility is unbeaten. And this is the reason why I think, that Puskas is not worth his price tag for me. (3.6mil vs. 1.4mil)
His bodytype is more like Marcelo Captain (1.2mil) , but his animations are not that good and puskas lacks 5 star WF.
I know this puskas is a monster. He made a lot of contributions through these games, but he is definitely too expensive. Di Natale, Garrincha and Marcelo all feel better on the ball while having almost the same finishing and passing attributes.
