93 ballance allows him to use his third leg. This man would body a 90 year old homeless women if it were optional. Absolute machine on the ball, feels weird using a card so strong that can also turn and accelerate so fast.
- long shots
- won't lose a header
- always in the right place at the right time
- High/low work rate
- crossing is quite poor, but who ever crosses with a striker
- volleys could be a bit better
As a certified akinfenwa connoisseur (check out my previous fifa review of akinfenwa; 300 games), i am literally on the verge of tears that our absolute dear beast himself is retiring at the end of the season. a man of such physique given legendary status in MEMEry by baldski that FIFA would create their own body type for him. I can tell you, last year, the absolute best thing about RB akinfenwa was his shot cancels into a turn and shoot. This year, not only can he do that, you can use his gargantuan body type and do the OP roulette, probably smother Ramos to kingdom come and bang one top bins. But the MOST important thing is that this year, Akinfenwa can pass. HE CAN PASS!!! We're not talking KDB but he can play a sleek short pass with ease. I will say like usual, the downsides of Akinfenwa's bodytype give him a very short reach due to his short legs and stout frame. He is hard-pressed to win a header despite his heading accuracy and jumping. Furthermore, his interceptions and stand tackling are quite poor due to the body type. You need to make sure Akinfenwa gets to a lobbed ball convincingly before volleying it, or he would simply fail to stretch his puny stem of a leg and make him look a fool. His physicals are great when facing away from the opponent's net and shielding, although tall and strong defenders like Van Dijk can still manage to push the ball off of him. He will make shorter CBs like Cordoba or even Maldini look silly if they try to tackle by force. ALL IN ALL, this is a brilliant card that you should complete to commemorate the career of the BEAST himself. LASTLY, GOOD LUCK IN WEMBLEY, Akinfenwa and Wycombe. A win in wembley would be a dream sendoff for the BEAST!!!
Exploiting space in between CBs
Finesse shot trait added
Very low reach
Tackling and Interceptions
Not the best heading
I have been waiting for this moment for at least 10 years. This card gives you motivation to BEAST in real life as well. I was at the gym locker room checking companion app and when I saw this card it felt like a Hardcore pre-workout. Only PRs were made that day. Oh and the gameplay aspect. He is excellent at shielding the ball and leaving those autoblock merchants to the mud.
The fact that he doesn't have 5* 5* is a robbery but we will have to accept that. He finishes every opportunity like I finish my Big Mac. Overall really nice card to have in your team!
4* Weak foot feels like 5*
He is nuts I'll tell you he is an op striker only one problem He is too good. HE is too strong, HE is fast I suggest use Engine for his agility if you want for him to be fast use Hunter he is a beast on both.
Problem is, he's league, but you link him with a British guy. NO touching the man with 99 physic his shooting is very powerful he's passing is good, he's dribbling is good for a striker I'll say the best British striker. Plus very cheap challenge to do.
Fast, agile,extrimily strong,Beast
What a card to commemorate the end of Akinfenwa's professional football career. He is the reason I never shied away from the weight lifting and never skipped my biceps day.
His proximity makes especially skinny and petite defenders panic and tremble. He once clashed with Desailly though and you can see the result in my highlights video.
Bodytype of a bouncer allows him to bully majority of defenders 24/7, he is the bodyguard you want for your team, even Whitney Houston would have preferred him over Kevin Costner.
Perfect workrates (high/low) for a striker, he will get on your opponents' nerves really quickly with all the disruption he causes in and outside the penalty box.
Consistent finisher, converts like 8/10 opportunities, he does not shoot, he launches cannonballs towards the goal, I would be hard-pressed to recall someone with harder shots.
Engine chemstyle is a must in my opinion, it gives him +10 dribbling which is absolutely crucial and game-changing since he has only 81 dribbling.
Tried him out on both "balanced" and "target man" instruction and I must say that not only does he shield the ball well with his back to the goal, he can outrun defenders and fend them off with ease as well.
Passing is satisfactory as long as you stick to normal ground passes.
I sincerely hope that he will make his appearance in FIFAs to come, if not in the form of FUT Hero, then certainly in the new exclusive and custom-made promo FUT Beasts.
