    Good improvement to last edition, fully packed with every think you could want. However the gameplay still lets fifa down. If you want great addictive gamplay go for Pes, if that doesn't bother you and you want a game jam packed with everything else then fifa will do it for you.

    In my opinion this game is ok, but not nearly as good as it's reviews. I though the uefa euro 2008 game was better than this one, but I prefer the game play of pro evo 2009, even though that game does not have all the bells and whistles of this game.

    Fifa 09 was a big disappointment, the camera is bad, is to easy to steal the ball, its seems that EA has focused to much on the goalie and not enough on the players. Also the players don't play as a team the game lacks coordination and anticipation from the players. every time you pass the ball nobody runs all the players just wait for the ball.

I'm a big Fifa fan but this game just lacks a lot, i would say that FiFa 08 is better. Expand

    Buying this game for 2.50 used is still not worth it. After playing fifa 10 and 11, you really cant go back. I would rate the game lower, but I can't seem to give decent games below a 6.

    El peor fifa junto al 08 con mucha diferencia de ps3, aunque hay que entender que eran los primeros de esta consola, la jugabilidad no es nada del otro mundo, el fifa 06 es mejor que este y eso que el otro es de ps2, aun así, gran juego...aunque a estas alturas es un poco absurdo jugarlo, solo para amantes de el mismo xDD bueno pues eso...por cierto... gráficos pésimos...hasta los deEl peor fifa junto al 08 con mucha diferencia de ps3, aunque hay que entender que eran los primeros de esta consola, la jugabilidad no es nada del otro mundo, el fifa 06 es mejor que este y eso que el otro es de ps2, aun así, gran juego...aunque a estas alturas es un poco absurdo jugarlo, solo para amantes de el mismo xDD bueno pues eso...por cierto... gráficos pésimos...hasta los de nintendo 64 son mejores :S Expand

  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]
