    FIFA 09 acts as the most unrealistic edition of FIFA. The ball feels like a balloon at times and the gameplay is on the border of ridiculous. Aside from the negatives, it remains a fun game to play however.

    Ma de los mismo que el FIFA 08 , siguieron en la misma linia y sin muchos cambios respeto lo anterior (mejorar un poquito lo que era el modo manager ) y les funciono . Poco mas que decir de este aceptable entrega de la saga FIFA .

    While FIFA on PS2 doesn't have the sheen of PS3 or X360, it shines for being the most polished, feature-filled and complete version of the game on any system.

FIFA 09 has a few new tweaks to the game engine, but it's mostly a fresh coat of polish on a formula that's gotten better every year. Current-gen soccer games are still catching up to the playability and fun factor of FIFA on PS2. Collapse

    Typically polished and enjoyable, FIFA 09 on PS2 is aging gracefully. [Nov 2008, p.61]
  2. A truly spectacular soccer title with exceptional player animations, ball handling and gameplay to boot. The AI will provide a significant challenge, but the implementation of one of the most advanced and complete online modes will mean that this game will truly last you a long time.
  3. There's no question that FIFA on PS2 is starting to show its age. It looks good for a PS2 game and the new animations are excellent, but the frame rate isn't as smooth as we'd like it to be. It's also a big disappointment that online play is nowhere to be seen in FIFA 09 on PS2.
