Summary: Got this as a freebie on the PS3 and I do enjoy some football games but this is not foe me! *basic controls are too compact and awkward to pull moves off *I tryed this on medium yes medium and failed to even score I keep on losing the ball every five seconds because simple of the cpu of rubbing the difficulty up.
Sorry but most people have just listened to the hype.

Summary: This is an unbiased review as I have always had Fifa games and only once bought pro evo 6 (FIFA 07). I have to say that I was completely suckered by the hype that came with this game when I bought it in December 08. Everyone said, in magazines, the internet, friends, that this was the best Fifa yet,with unbelievable realism and gameplay and content that completely trumps pes.
Summary: As a football video game fan of over 20 years (from Sensi to Kick Off to Fifa and PES) I've felt compelled to write a review of the game that has been awarded so many stars and sells in such big volumes (though I believe one of the main reasons for this is the brand name). Now I have to put my hands up and admit that, first and foremost, I'm a PES man but even I can appreciate that it's fallen a little by the wayside over the last couple of years (though 2009 is a vast...
Summary: I last played Fifa in 2001 on a ps2 and loved it (and was pretty good at it too I might add). Blimey how its changed. Look, don't get me wrong, super graphics and a zillion options but try getting stuck in to a simple game and you'll get walked all over. The practice area consists of just you and a keeper, thats it...mmm not really helping with the passing or tackling skills.
Summary: I cant beleive that all the hype and great reviews this game got in the press how basic it actually is... Players near the ball (when the ball is not controlled by anyone)seem to to run around like headless chickens... Due to the passing all being controlled by the power bar trying to attempt a very quick pass or through ball doesnt work. The game play is ok but seems rather slow and labourious and the Menus are over complicated..
Summary: I had great hopes for this game, especially following on from so many positive reviews. Sadly the game doesn't live up to this hype. The game sadly is terminally infuriating and with in 4 days the issues made it simply unplayable. The games AI is very poor, players show extremely little awareness of the events around them and do not react to even the simplest things.
Just like Newcastle United - all talk at the start of the season before quickly becoming a massive letdown

Summary: What a let down. After playing the demo I was excited for this year's FIFA; I was hoping it could build on an encouraging showing in FIFA 08 and the Euro 2008 game, but despite all the hype and fuss about those "250 core gameplay improvements" promised, the game is STILL hamstrung by basic, irritating and in some cases, completely game-ruining, bugs, errors, misjudgements and complete stupidity on EA's part.
Summary: El fifa o9 es un buen juego en cuanto ha entretenimiento si te gusta el futbol. Tiene unos gráficos buenos y buenos modos. Pero tiene dos fallos: uno no importa mucho y me refiero a la repetición de los comentarios por parte de los comentaristas deportivos que por mucho que sean los que en la realidad comentan el futbol se podían haber esmerado un poco más.
Summary: Leider weist das Spiel, wie auch die Nachfolger Fifa10 und Fifa11, teils erhebliche Bugs auf. So ist es keine Seltenheit, dass gegnerische Spieler mit dem Ball am Fuß zielgerichtet ins Aus laufen - ohne dabei auch nur bedrängt zu werden. Leider ist der KI-Schwierigkeit auch zu sehr unterschiedlich zwischen den einzelnen Stufen. Realismus sieht eben doch anders aus und EA hat noch sehr viel Arbeit vor sich.
Pros: Grafik mit Einschränkungen
Cons: Bugs und unrealistische Spielsequenzen, Steuerung zu komplex, zu wenige individuelle Vielfalt, z.B. keine Trikoterstellung
