  1. The best handheld football game by a country mile. A must for anyone who loves football.
  2. EA does it again with FIFA Soccer 09. It is a very good game, certainly the best on the PSP.

    I will say this is my best game on psp ever. Unlimited hours of fun on fifa 09. Cool experiences like i scored a goal from a half way line, constantly owning the cpu and stuff. Something i can't do regularly when i played fifa10. This game stands out from the rest fifa series due to its outrageously superb controls where you can score from anywhere you like. I love this game so much. Full Review »

    Despite what the real critics say, the tiny PSP version of FIFA 09 greatly out does the 360 and PS3 versions of the game. One thing, the manager mode on the PSP is allot more in depth, and although it isn't as pretty on the eyes, it really does beat the other games with its extra features. I own both the 360 version and the PSP version and I play the PSP version so much more. The 360 one is now gathering dust in the corner, it may be pretty, but it lacks the depth and gameplay of this handheld wonder. Full Review »

    I've always preferred Pro Evo but I haven't put FIFA09 down since I've bought it. The player cam perspective is great and the way the camera jolts as you near the goal to shoot is such a cool little touch. The gameplay is great and there are so many modes and options that it'll keep you going for months. Konami will have their work cut out to better FIFA this year. Full Review »
