Got him from the prime moment pack. Not going to lie I was so disappointed at the time. But thought I might as well give him a go before submitting him to the next big SBC. All games in elite rivals.
Oh boy, what a surprise. The finishing is so OP, every shot seems like he used his outside foot shot trait. The dipping curve on his shots made it impossible to save most of the time. Makes very clever runs all the time, very good attacking AI. He is fast enough with engine, and definitely not clunky as well. Actually outperforming Weghorst showdown on my two st formation.
Will recommend if you like to play with big st, one of the best 9 I have ever used in Fifa 22
Stamina if playing a high speed game
Not a rat
Most people think he is bad,but i tell you he is underrated.his shooting is so nice.his heading and his physis is unbeliveble.so i can say for people who play small agillity player i can not commend but people who like to play a bit bigger player i commend.I used catalyst because he should be faster and his passing should be better. I also used engine ,but with engine his passing and his pace was to slow and also i dont fell any difference with the agillity.
Everyone uses Ruben Diaz and Gomez as their center backs, but neither can even win the physical combat against Van Basten. Basten is humongous in-game thanks to his high/average+ body type. This body type is sort of rare on a striker, but trust me, Van Basten can automatically push defenders around and block them from tackling the ball using his back, like Shaq shielding Kevin Hart (but an agile and rapid Shaq). Lob pass, stop the ball with chest, volley, goal. Through pass, shot cancel, outside foot shot, goal. High crossing, header, goal. Outside box, finesse, goal. His shooting is phenomenal and feels way more powerful than some smaller players due to his long legs. I've tried multiple strikers such as prime Cruyff, prime Puskas, totw Mbappe, birthday CR7, the rat, and totw Lewa, but none of them have given me this kind of excitement. You just score goals and win the games so easily without thinking about which way to exit your elastico or scoop turn. Super fun card!!!! As a classic 9, he is a lot better than TOTS Kane and TOTY Lewa.
- High and Average + body type, extremely strong, and impossible to get tackled in the game
- As a big guy, he turns very well
- Finishes all types of shots from anywhere in the box
- Rapid enough with catalyst chem style.
- Three star skill move is the only con but you can get away with it using shot/skill move cancel
In previous years, van Basten has been largely written off as unusable due to his relatively low agility and dribbling compared to the meta strikers like Mbappe, Butra, Dalglish. However, after over 500 goals with his baby version with an average of 1.3 goals per game, I decided to splash out the extra 150k to upgrade to the moments version. The baby version already has the most clinical shooting of any striker I've tried, so I was eager to see how the pace, strength and agility boost affected his in game performances.
Safe to say, he exceeded expectations once again. His shooting from anywhere within 30 yards is absolutely deadly. His finesse shots from outside the box are cracked, he dominates every CB in the air, is a threat from corners and his weak foot feels like 5 star. He is already averaging over 1.5 goals per game in Division 1 and WL, and he is one of the players you can just rely on to score.
His pace is fine and he can outrun CBs, bit he isn't mbappe. His left stick dribbling is very responsive, but don't expect him to waltz through defences like Cruyff and round the keeper. Just build up the play, spot MVB in the box and cross or pass to him and he will do the rest. Anywhere near the goal and he is a cold blooded killer.
The most clinical shooting I've ever used
Good short passing
Finesse shot trait
He isn't meta. If you want your striker to turn like cruyff and dribble through defences, MVB isn't your man.
Works better in a two. As a lone striker, he can get isolated.
