    The gameplay is nigh on perfection, the pace is perfect, the shooting has been tweaked subtly and, with the addition of the R2 shooting, it really feels like a new game. This is the first time since WE6 that most die-hard fans will notice a real change and a real sense of newfound enjoyment in the game.
  2. We'd like to see the player rewarded for his skills more, that the game was fairer. There remain plenty of moments in Winning Eleven 9 where you'll scream with frustration not because 'that's football' but because the game does something that's completely out of your control, and for that reason we have to mark it down.

    A scintillating performance, marred only by the odd foul.

    Konami strikes again! Can it get any better than this. The physics engine is unbelievable with realistic bounces, slide tackles, dribbling, Konami strikes again! Can it get any better than this. The physics engine is unbelievable with realistic bounces, slide tackles, dribbling, shots, etc. Although it still doesn't own all of the licenses, once it does, FIFA will be wiped off the mat for good. The six star setting is a little unrealistic (magic goals for the computer, etc.) but is still worth the challenge. Buying classic players is a gem as usual as well as the access to classic squads. You can change teams around easily, and the Master League mode had gotten more in-depth as the series continues. I can't wait for the PS3 version of this franchise. Well worth the money and time to play the game. Full Review »

    This game is just great. EA should play good football games like this before they decide to release one more FIFA game.
