"Good upgrade, but lacks NG gameplay."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very worthy upgrade of fifa 08, however the fact it lacks NG (next gen) gameplay somewhat makes it more like 08 than I would like it to be. There are bugs, oh yes, but if you get used to the odd mishap it is well worth the money. I have now almost played 800 offline games and I will certainly play more. Manager mode is much the same as 08, however the new graphics make the cut scenes look splendid. There are also many unofficial mods that are available to make the game even more in depth than it already is. The online interface has been completely re-made, and whether or not you like it is more down to personal taste rather than how it performs. The Online interface now resembles the ps3/360 version, but does not perform like they do.

Summary: If this is your first fifa game, I would recommend it over previous versions as the graphics are very good, however, online play is rather buggy, and although EA tries to fix this with 2 patches, several bugs still remain. If you already have 08 or 07, download the demo before making the final desicion as to whether or not you should buy it.

"Great Game"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Although this is a reat follow up to the original games in the series with brilliant new graphics the problem is in the controls. Although you have the choice to play with keyboard and mouse or just mouse, both options seem difficult. I would reccommend using a gamepad or xbox 360 controller to make it easier.


Step onto the pitch and play professional football your way in EA SPORTS FIFA 09.

Powered by an overhauled animation system and all-new collision system-representing the biggest innovations to the game engine in four years-FIFA 09 delivers more responsive, intelligent and realistic physical action.

Hundreds of new animation sequences and a new collision detection system with 360 degree coverage enable players to behave according to their physical attributes. Player speed, direction and strength now determine everything from the severity of the collision to the outcome of possession. Plus, contact occurs with shoulders, arms and legs. Stronger players possess the strength to knock down smaller players or use their body and arms to shield the ball in challenges.

Changes to the animation system reward the skillful gamer during one-on-one situations between attackers and defenders. Tuned acceleration attributes enable swifter players to possess quicker first steps and gain advantage in sprints. Plus, four new skill moves -- scoop turns, rainbow flicks, heel-to-heel knocks and ball rolls - give you a total of 32 tricks in your arsenal to perform just like Ronaldinho.

From the moment you step onto the pitch, FIFA 09 challenges you to think and react like a real football player through the popular feature innovation Be A Pro -- now expanded to multiple seasons and featuring the unique Be A Pro camera that tracks your player, re-creating the excitement and rush of racing in on goal. In Be A Pro: Seasons you choose a professional player and then develop his skills at a single outfield position. Complete individual challenges to develop your player attributes and win glory for the squad.
