Excerpt: My brother and I have been talking about this all new FIFA game for the past couple of days now, and he believes that this iteration features the least amount of changes over past ones, or rather that it doesn't feel any different. There is some truth to that, but it doesn't make FIFA 09 a bad game.
Excerpt: Here in the UK, FIFA and Pro Evo’s annual October release is practically a national holiday. Both always have excellent opening weekends and debate over which is the better of the two floods the internet for days afterward.
Excerpt: Possibly the best yet. I am a diehard football fan and have been waiting for this game for months. So after an hour waiting in my local supermarket and the most agonising drive home i finally got my hands on it.
Pros: quick player reactions, more fast flowing gameplay and complete realism. good soundtrack.
Cons: dull and repetitive commentary, still some player lag.
Summary: Around this time last year I was debating whether to get Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 or FIFA 08. I decided, as being a PES fanboy, I would go with that. But this year I decided to make the change and head over to the darkside and purchase FIFA 09.
Pros: Superb gameplay, 10 v 10 is a superb innovation, Almost everything is licensed
Cons: Rio Ferdinand can do the robot, seriously, S/P Be A Pro can get a little boring, I'm now no longer a PES fanboy
Excerpt: Vi har ramt efterårsperioden, som mange forbinder med blæst, regn og koldere temperaturer. Derfor befinder vi os mere og mere indenfor, hvilket betyder at den runde læderkugle må overvintre i kælderen, inden foråret igen står for skud.
Pros: Det er meget småt med ting, vi kunne tænke os, for FIFA 09 er i sin helhed en helt fantastisk oplevelse, der bringer en ny og hel anderledes kamp med sig, hver gang man starter sin Xbox 360 op med FIFA 09 i maskinen. Bravo EA!
Cons: Lidt over soundtracket, og en anelse over managerdelen.
