First off, we have to say it's great to get a decent Alexandre Pato card back in FIFA.
He was once a giant signing in Career Mode, so many of us will have fond memories of using him back in the day.
Now, it's time to stop sounding like an old dud and focus on his new card.
This Flashback version has everything you could want in a striker, top speed and dribbling, great shooting, and pretty decent passing and physicality.
We understand that people were wanting more than four-star weak-foot and skill-moves, but we don't see that as a necessity.
Being from the MLS he won't have many big names to link to, however, his Brazilian nationality saves that and means you can link throughout multiple leagues.
Objectives could be coming soon that require MLS players, so he would also be useful for use in the future.
However, there is one big reason why we probably won't be completing this SBC, and that is the price.
150k for an 87-rated player seems a bit too steep, regardless of sentimentality.
Yes, you can add a chemistry style to him so he gets the stats of a 93-rated card, but soon bigger and better cards will come along and Pato will get left by the wayside.
Our mind may change in the next few days as more people play with him and give their reactions, but for now, we are going to hold off.
