Scream Giovinco Review

Unlike Scream Draxler’s SBC, which got slandered for being far too expensive, Scream Giovinco is much more affordable. But is Giovinco’s Scream card good enough to serve as an affordable alternative to Scream Draxler or Ozil?

Well, u/alekd992 seems to think so, which they outlined on their post on the FIFA sub-Reddit:

“It’s a pretty solid card, fun to use, and can be used as a super sub. 30-40k is cheap and anyone can afford it. […] They took unusable card and made usable”

One Reddit user responded saying that although “he’s going to be tough to link, on value for quality alone, it’s actually one of the better player SBCs they’ve done”.

One gamer brought up concerns over the lack of a boost to Giovinco’s base card; “it’s a Scream card with none of the usual huge boosts that come with screams. Somehow he went from 81 to 86 but his stats went up by an average of 3 points instead of 5”.

Nevertheless, the general consensus was that Scream Giovinco is a “solid sub for a decent price”, as one Reddit user summarised.

Ultimately, Giovinco’s Scream card isn’t going to be a groundbreaking FUT card; unlike Scream Ozil who’s been heralded as an incredible card, don’t expect a marked improvement from Giovinco’s base stats to his Scream stats.

However, if you’re desperate to get your hands on an Ultimate Scream card but don’t want to fork out the big bucks, then Scream Giovinco is more than capable of becoming a valued squad player.
