    2009 should have been EA's year to finally claim the footballing crown with a solid FIFA game across all systems, but despite the radical changes and improvements to their game, Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 still manages to score a winning goal with this new one.
  2. A very enjoyable football game which is perfect for the small screen of the PSP.
  3. Not much improvement on last year's game but excellent playing options. [Christmas 2008, p.84]
  4. Apart from the Become a Legend mode, the new edition has nothing much to justify the acquisition for owners of previous versions.
  5. PES has its personality and the basic act of playing the game is still enjoyable enough, but this is a series that desperately needs a complete overhaul.

    It’s too bad that more wasn’t put into the PSP version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2009.
  7. One the series' die-hards only. Everyone else should bite the bullet and accept that for this season at least, FIFA's leagues ahead.
