    This game is way better than the PC version. The only thing that sucks is you can't update your players, but that is okay.

I got it as a gift from friends, and at first, i said to myself that this will suck, but i found out that this was the best soccer game on a handheld ever; it's so fun and enjoyable to play that i haven't put my DS down since i got this game. i enjoyed it more than PC versions of last years FIFA and PES. i loved the intuitive control system with the stylus. it gets big points (not for the graphics) but for the gameplay, and that's what matters the most for sports games; not to mention, the sound was really good as well. thumbs up to FIFA and i hope the next installation for DS is even better and more fun.

    This game is easily the best soccer game to be release on the DS so far. The difference is clear in the first few minutes of playing it that this game is a keeper. Packed full of features, if you are a soccer fan that owns NDS, then this is a must have.

  1. It's been a long hard road but DS owners finally have a football game that they can be proud of – FIFA 09 is this season's most improved player.
  2. Football fans rejoice! FIFA 09 is EA’s best footy outing so far and with more modes than ever before there is plenty for DS football fans to get their teeth into here. FIFA shoots! FIFA scores!
  3. Most likely the best football game on the handheld, it's like a miniature package of the other versions.
