    Rubbish! Graphics still suck, ball physics suck, speed sucks, this game generally sucks. But the stupid media believe this is a better game because it has official licenses and you got 10 vs 10, well has anyone one played 10 vs 10? It's crap, it seriously is. Players running towards the ball like lemmings off a cliff. As for this game being deeper that Pro, more like Mr Svennis Rubbish!

The only things which are better here is the commentary and the be a pro section, that's it! Pro is men, fifa is for little boys (as that is all I hear online) or Americans thinking this is the super-bowl! Expand

    FIFA 09 was my first Xbox 360 game. This game led me to believe that Xbox games were not the best and I didn't play the game for a while. However when I got back into this game I realised that it can actually be quite fun and in my opinion is better than FIFA 10 and 11 due to the fact that the ball sounds so fluent and exaggerated which to me is a good feature.

    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.

    FIFA 09 comes with a new system of passes, stunning graphics and the all elements are taken almost to perfection. Fun for both newcomers and veterans! [Oct 2008]
  3. The best FIFA game ever made. Over to you Konami.
