FIFA 17: TOTY Neymar is Perfect in This Game
Now that we're nearing the end of this FIFAs cycle, I feel like I should recommend this card now that a lot more people have the fifa coins to afford him. He's sitting at around 850-900k on Xbox, which is an absolute bargain compared to the other TOTY attackers. I played him at striker in a 4-1-2-1-2 (2) with either messi at ST and Suarez at CAM or Suarez at ST and TIF/TOTY Iniesta at CAM.
His 99 acceleration gives him the upper edge on every defender if you play it right. He can take those big touches to get inside from the wing and actually make it to the ball before the defender. Never gets caught when thru onto goal. Incredible speed coming out of his skill moves.
He misses like one shot every 50 games for me. His finesses are amazing. So many top bins. And his power shots are great too. Long shots are the only reason he gets a 9.5, but honestly, if you're taking long shots with him, you're doing it wrong. He can dribble past anyone and finish it easily, so no reason to spam longshots.
He has the stats of the best playmakers in the game and they do not disappoint. Great for setting either wingers or his strike partner thru on goal. Hardly ever a misplaced pass.
Best dribbler in the game. His size and stats fit perfectly together to make him the most silky smooth dribbler in the game. The ball sticks to his feat and no touch dribbling with him is magical. 5 skill moves give you a plethora of options on beating defenders, but they are not needed in the slightest. It's more of a style option.
Was actually surprised at how well he was at getting back. His speed let him catch up to people in an instant if I turned the ball over. Lots of counter attacking opportunities were made with Neymar getting back and stealing the ball quickly.
99 stamina is amazing, and while his strength is only 56, he was very rarely pushed off the ball. His acceleration played a big part in that.
He is the perfect player for this game. Quick and agile both on and off the ball and a lethal finisher. The only player I've considered giving a review on because of how good he is.
