FIFA 21 is finally out for gamers to enjoy from the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Windows PC platforms. Those who will be playing their games from the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Series S consoles will also get the chance of running FIFA 21 starting next month.
There were many gamers who were mad at what FIFA 20 had to offer for them. They accused the developers of a significant lack of realism – poor passing, hitting the post too much, rarely scoring goals with a header, and many others. But does FIFA 21 really solve all of these negative aspects of FIFA 20? Thanks to EA itself, we have an answer.
FIFA 21 and FIFA 20 are the same for Nintendo Switch
The EA description for FIFA 21 from the Nintendo eShop says it clear:
FIFA 21 Legacy Edition will feature the same gameplay innovation from FIFA 20 without any new development or significant enhancements.
EA still chose to update the menus and, of course, the teams’ rosters of players. Many FIFA fans are eager to see their favorite teams updated with the latest transfers from reality, but a high-class soccer game should do a lot more than that. It’s ridiculous to be willing to pay 59.99 euros only to see the latest transfers, a newly designed UI, and nothing more.
EA is not applying any new formula at all while bringing FIFA 21 to the gaming world. The company is well-known for creating a new game for the FIFA series every year with little to pretty much no improvements at all. Many FIFA fans are complaining on forums and other websites about this terrible policy.
FIFA 21 also got rid of the legendary Messi and Ronaldo from the front cover. Kylian Mbappé and Erling Braut Haaland, respectively, are taking their places, and these are not necessarily bad moves.
