The gameplay of Fifa 21 is abysmal, there are a lot of inconsistencies, it's a poor job.
EA cannot release a range of games like this, it is not possible, it is totally unacceptable gameplay.
The game as it is, is simply unplayable. I don't know what EA is doing with game programming, but it's not serious, it's more blatant.
The ball does anything and the programming of the game favors one way or another but in an unbearable way. The player animations are bizarre, with teams galloping 90 minutes without getting tired. Insensitive or passive players, terrible responsiveness issues ... I don't know what EA did in developing the game, but EA is not a good game developer.
The players collide, leaving the road clear for the opposing goal. Strong players are pushed like vulgar puppets by skinny little players. The consistency of the game is absurd and has not been worked on. Collisions favorable to repetition are always present.
Beyond that, there is a problem with the programming of the game linked to the fate of the scenario which is not normal. It is not normal for the game's programming to favor too much one way or another, but in a very abusive way it does not make sense or it is a competence issue on EA's part, who doesn't know how to properly develop a game.
