They're pretty much identical.
Hagi = slightly better shooting and better passing
Okocha = better dribbling and 5* skills
Anyone used both or had good experiences with one?

    Okocha if you use a lot of skillmoves, poor stamina tho

    OKOCHA is the man. Just know how to use him properly. I feel he's best suited as CAM. With Deadeye, you can boost his passing and shooting stats to near perfection (99 free kicks, 99 curve, 98 short passing , 98 positioning, 94 finishing, 94 long shots).

    Strong points:
    -Dribbling/ball control near perfection (dribbling stat IDENTICAL to Prime Ronaldinho [96])
    -Great shooting and curve
    -Great acceleration (altho only 84 top speed)

    Weak points (but you can know how to use them):
    -Stamina (if he's a CAM with "stay forward" or ST OR just don't sprint like a crazy person, he'll be fine)
    -Strength (don't try to go shoulder to shoulder with Bakayoko, but rather pull a quick skill move and accelerate away, leaving Bakayolo to wish he were Bakayokocha)

    Hagi - he has the same pace burst as Lozano

    I haven't use Hagi tho, so can't speak to the comparison to him in particular.

    Thanks for the detailed review. I was leaning towards okocha before I posted this and think i might just get him now

    no prob man. And if you want a more detailed review, check this out from FUTbin:
    https://www.futbin.com/news/articles/69/REVIEW+-+PRIME+ICON+Okocha

    A couple points I disagree with the article though. He claims that Okocha would be more for fun and not a competitive option... from my experience, I disagree, but I'm only a D5 Seasons player and hardly ever have a chance to qualify for WL. @holdenwait and @JayyThunder tho use him at competitive levels in WL.

    Also, the article says his stamina is an issue... I completely disagree with that if you use him correctly. Sure if you hammer the sprint button all game, he'd be gassed, but if you manage his stamina, it's fine. holdenwait can attest to this as well. (heck, I make EoaE Pirlo last the full 90 and he has 53 stamina; Okocha is a marathon runner in comparison with 72 stamina)

    @RayS nailed it there.

    I haven’t done his SBC but I’ve used him in fair few drafts and he’s amazing. He’s the closest thing to Ronaldinho and he’s pretty quick and very neat finisher. His long shots are awesome and dribbling is up there with your messi and Ronaldinho etc.

    Have been thinking about doing his SBC but I play a 4-1-2-1-2 WIDE and I have Rui Costa as my CAM who’s is too good to replace (over 409 games with him now) but if your playing 4-3-2-1 or 4-3-1-2 then Yh fair enough.

    Downside...
    strength - (I prefer my CAMs with “decent strength)

    Height - (like Rui he’s wins some of my Ariel dues and also good to score headers now and then)

    Stamina - poor stamina for the formation I use as he’s be the only CAM (4-1-2-1-2 wide) but he’s absolutely fine when player in s formation packed with CMs and CAMs

    Overall he’s a great card. If your a very offensive player he’s the one for you..

    If your a on the ground possession player again he’s the one.

    lol yeah, I run Okocha as CAM in one team and then SBC Giovinco in my other... needless to say they win maybe 1 out of 100 headers from goal kicks haha, but I'll take it.

    oh yeah and Okocha is king of face-up dribbling

    I used 89 Hagi for a.long time as a central CAM and he was phenomenal. He is a cheap Messi. Passing, shooting and dribbling are amazing. He goes missing in any other position so he isn't very versatile. His long shots are unrivalled though, my TOTGS De Bruyne isn't even as good as him
