    Thought this was going be the year for fifa going by the positive reviews on here, but got it home and was bored after 5 games as scored a lot of goals which looked the same. Does not match the depth and gameplay of PES 2009. Also only take into account PSM3's review as they are the only reliable source so far.

  1. This is a brilliantly presented, fluidly playable game of football overflowing with new features. Over to you, Pro Evo. [Oct 2008, p.82]

    FIFA 09 returns to the pitch full of swagger, and it does it’s very best to deliver on EA Sport’s promise of creating the definitive football title. An exacting game on the pitch and an overwhelmingly comprehensive one off of it.
  3. The best FIFA yet, but EA are still a few goals short of the title. [Nov 2008, p.80]
