    you can get it for 99p or cents and fifa 09 is a legendary game whith great gameplay that takes only 15 mins to get to grips whith so you can play the legendary 8 aside internatonal footy. the standard gameplay is awesome too. it actully looks like pro football.the manager mode is where it is truly amazing.the awesome felling of signing your drean team and winning major leauges is phenomanal.sure the grapics are terrible but this is still better than fifa 11 today.BUY it now.

    What makes this stand out from other FIFA games? It's got a mode where you play as bobble heads!!! I liked this simple controls on this game as a suppose to the more recent complicated controls which make me want to switch back. This is a mote casual football game as a suppose to the more realistic sims these days and I wish the they still made them like this!

    overall, it's the best fifa game i've played, the only complain i have with it is the passing, that is sometimes off target but worse is that sometimes it makes a loop pass instead of a low pass when it isn't necesary. I can make players go where i want to put my passes and that is really good, but somehow there's also some lost control with the Wii remote compared to the Gamecube controller. The online is pure awesomeness and the 8 Vs 8 is sometimes even better than the normal football game. This game is GOOD. Collapse

  1. A truly spectacular soccer title with exceptional player animations, ball handling and gameplay to boot. The AI will provide a significant challenge, but the implementation of one of the most advanced and complete online modes will mean that this game will truly last you a long time.
  2. It would be easy to dismiss it with the cutesy Miis and two games in one approach, but in spite of this, FIFA has been given what it needed to draw in the first timers and the old hands, snatching the title of best football game on the Wii with a last minute flick of the remote.
  3. A lightweight, schizophrenic football title that fails to draw you in like a "FIFA" game should. [Dec 2008, p.50]
