I’m not really much of a soccer fan, though I will watch during the World Cup or European Championship tournaments and an occassional MLS game. I picked up this game on a whim, and I was pleasantly surprised. Let’s just say that since I’ve started playing, I haven’t put Madden 09 back in my 360.
The controls are pretty straightforward and easy to learn. Soccer strategy was a complete mystery to me before I started playing, but after a few games I was competitive and now can consistently score a few goals a game on the hardest difficulty.
The graphics are pretty good, considering the massive environment that is a soccer field. Close-up reaction shots and celebrations are pretty realistic.
The game certainly has no shortage of teams, that’s for sure. There are well over a hundred different teams from dozens of leagues from around the world with complete, accurate rosters.
I wish that there were more stadiums, however. You find yourself playing the same generic few again and again, though they do try to change it up by having different weather conditions and times of day available. I realize that they couldn’t have had all of the hundreds of distinct stadiums, but a few more would have been nice.
I can’t compare it to any other soccer games, since I’ve never played any, but if you’re looking for an enjoyable, detailed, fun game, FIFA 2009 is a good choice.

I have been a fan of Konami PES games since like 99 or so back then it was known as winning eleven to most soccer gaming fans all over the world. I used to also purchase fifa and they did make some succesful attempts like fifa 99 and the most of world cup games. Honestly, ever since like 2004 i had given up on fifa. The intelligence was not there, players weren’t moving while u are attacking and it was way too easy to score goals for me. This year, I read many reviews about the new Fifa and I said to myself, PES is the way to go and i went out and purchased PES again. Pes was fun at first but the glitches and the lack of leagues and online options started to bore me soooooo I GOT the new FIFA YESTERDAY!
WHAT A GAME!
1. The Graphics are beyond real. No glitches, no skips!
2. The game has everything that PES has. This includes being able to run around freely, pass however u like and shoot the ball precisely to a direction that u desire.
3. Its hard to score when u are face to face with the goalkeeper, whereas in PES the goalie just stands there and looks at u when u are trying to score a goal against him.
4.Many online and cup options
