Purchased this game here on the day of release. I've been a avid FIFA fan and this game has definitely improved compared to FIFA 08. The moves the players make are more realistic and the goals are harder to come by as the goal keepers' AI has taken a step up somewhat. Also “Adidas Live season” updates players ratings regularly according to how they are performing in real life.
A few glitches noted however such as computer AI players would perform these incredibly rough tackles on us and not getting pulled up for with yellow cards while simple tackles from our players get punished. I suppose patches in future might rectify that.
Overall I'm enjoying FIFA 09 on PS3 very much still, even I have purchased this last October. Highly recommended for any keen soccer fans.
