FIFA 21 has gained some muscles with this version for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, although the playstile is the same we already saw in PS4 and Xbox One. EA Sports has not taken all the profit from the new hardware, but it is great that you can upgrade for free if you have the version for the previuos generation.

Overall, if you like FIFA 21 current gen, you'll love FIFA 21 next gen. The graphics are incredible, the load times are rapid and the gameplay is smoother. But, don't expect the gameplay to feel completely different, because it's very similar to current gen, with significant gameplay changes expected for FIFA 22 and beyond.

FIFA 21 on PS5 is a surprisingly significant next-gen upgrade. Simply put, this is the best that virtual football has ever looked on PlayStation, and a slew of immersion-enhancing features make it the best version of FIFA in years.

If you own a next-gen console and are willing to play FIFA 21, you don't need to hesitate as it is a beautifutl and vibrant version of the game... But really similar to the one available on PS4 and Xbox One, not very well balanced on the pitch.

Playing FIFA 21 on the next-gen consoles is an absolute dream. Quicker load times, an increase in visual fidelity and better A.I. make it the strongest FIFA entry in the series in some time.

FIFA 21's next-gen visuals speak for themselves as the player models are absolutely gorgeous.

It's not a system seller, but if you're lucky enough to snag some new hardware and you're even just a casual soccer fan, it's worth checking out (especially because you can find the current-gen version for a cheap price and then just get a "free" upgrade to next gen).

The graphical improvements didn’t exactly wow me, but I definitely did not expect for EA to come up with one of the coolest implementations of the DualSense’s adaptive triggers to date. It makes me look forward to what they’re capable of doing in maybe two years, when everyone will already own a PS5 or a Series X.

The PS5 upgrade improves but doesn't awe.
