I was one of the very fortunate people that got to pack him on the day of release tradeable and because I had waited for his special card I didn't sell him but actually played about 20 games to get back into Elite including a few games in Elite. Then I completed the weekend league games and played him for all 20. I honestly had fun with the card, the quick turning speed and fast skill moves etc. But he is lacking in the air, as much as strength goes he is strong but will get bodied by the strong CBs and CMs as well as the full backs. He makes great runs and has amazing ball control but he is widely inconsistent in terms of finishing. I know people will hop in comment sections and tell you he finishes everything but that 88 composure at times feels like 79. His long shots are great when he has space and time and his passing is solid too. But overall he is (before any upgrades) very underwhelming for what is currently a 4.2 million card. When looking at other cards between the 1kk - 4.5kk range I have had the honour of using I cannot justify his Price tag being higher than for example TOTY Messi who is pretty much the same player but with better Shooting, Passing, Dribbling and even Defense. This is why I can honestly only recommend this card to those who don't mind parting with the coins or those who want to gamble on him as an investment. But I have to emphasise this is before any upgrades, if he gets any he might feel completely different to now, but where he is fun to use at the moment, he is definitely over priced by 2.5 million.
Pace (very fast in game)
5 Star Skill moves and he performs them very quickly (similar to Garrincha)
Passing (Good in general but great for a striker)
Stamina (Definitely helps knowing you don't have to worry about him running out of juice)
Flexible Positioning (You can pay him on the Wings at CAM, at Striker and even as an attacking CM due to his stamina)
Fun Card to use
High Jumping stats but unreliable in the air
Incredible dribbling but will get bodied by the top tier Defenders
No value for money should be 2 mil max without the upgrades
Feels underwhelming because of the price tag
Inconsistent form in game (will be great one game but will be unnoticable the next)
There are better alternatives for the Price currently in terms of Value for Perfomance and actual in game perfomance
Packed him from 84+ player pick and he made my team so much better instantly
Never done a review before but he deserves one. This man is beautiful. Everything about him is beautiful (apart from weak foot and heading accuracy). At some points, his weak foot is noticeable, if you expect him to score from somewhere on his left foot he might miss. His workrates make his runs and positioning really good. But the best parts about him are his pace, dribbling and skills. idk why but he feels sooo fast it feels like over 100 pace. His dribbling makes his skills really smooth. Saint-Max is just beautiful.
I don't normally write reviews this soon after I get players, I'll usually need to use them for dozens of games before I get to get my opinion on players. Not needed here.
Everyone wants to know if he's overpriced or if he's really worth it. I can't speak for playstation prices because he's been slowly rising on there but on Xbox he's been dropping for the past day from 4.6m to under 3.3m now. I sniped him for 3.40m yesteday. ASM is always going to be compared to the likes of prime Pele, prime Dinho, FB Ronaldo, prime Cruyff and HL Mbappe. I think even without the upgrade, he's better than all of them bar Cruyff.
