  1. It's so realistic it makes me want to drivearound my block blasting the horn til' midnight.
  2. This is as close to a complete package you can get.
  3. It has that feeling of being more realistic and a wider range of controls.

    With the addition of online gameplay to the best soccer engine in the world, Winning Eleven 9 is worth a purchase, but it still somewhat feels like the American release of last year's "Winning Eleven 8: Live Wire" more than its own standalone game.
  5. The controls are more responsive and as a result you will actually use less combinations of buttons and the sticks to make your moves.
  6. 88
    A gem of a soccer title, but it feels like "Winning Eleven 8 Online"...WE9 is still the undisputed champ of videogame soccer. You'll laugh; you'll cry; you'll scream "GOAL" until you go blue in the face. It's that fun.
  7. You know a soccer title is doing it right when a match can end in a scoreless tie and you've had as much fun as when you've lit up the scoreboard. And this is in large part due to WE9's A.I., which plays such a smart brand of footy that it continually keeps you on your toes.
