Reus will become the face of the FIFA series of video games made by EA Sports. Reus runs fast, has a good movement and runs with the ball very well. Most passes will be forward passes, fast and directive. He has an edge handling the free kicks and he is also very consistent with penalties. His playing style as an attacker very much fits the Dortmund. He dribbles well, but doesn’t try to slow up the game with stupid tricks. Instead he blows past the defense, very fast and coordinated. Reus is a very versatile and intelligent all round player. One is confident to put him in the center as a solid playmaker or put him on the sides to make some great crosses. He has fantastic awareness, and always does a good throw in for his mates.
If there is something called the signature move of Marco Reus that would probably be his shooting technique as well as his high-speed dribbling. No eye candy or anything, plain effectiveness. Alike Parkour on the football pitch, the opponent defenders are merely obstacles, he will be playing to find the quickest possible way forward. Reus plays primarily as a left attacker, however, he is also capable of playing on the right side and through the center of the pitch, as he can control the ball with both feet.
Comparing Marco Reus with other exceptionally talented players, He’s not as definitively portrayed like Ronaldo, known for his tricks, footwork and incredible physique. Comparing Reus with his team mate Goetze, both are exceptionally talented, each of them has his own unique set of skills. Reus is a great dribbler, but his control is not on par with Goetze’s, but Reus’s aggression and quickness provided him with extremely direct style of tackling opponents. Reus just needs the perfect condition for effective dribbling, but if given opportunity to counterattack, he is a nightmare for defenders.
