  Freezes in manager mode

| | See all andreajt's reviews (4)

In manager mode this game freezes around the fourth or fifth season, which is most annoying when you've spent so much time building up a good squad etc. If you google "Fifa 09 freezes" you'll find that there are thousands of complaints about this and EA whilst acknowledging the problem have done nothing to rectify it.
Other lesser negatives with this game, the player response is very slow, especially when running with a player, the player positioning is pathetic (there is never a player up front when you want there to be, you run with a player but the minute you switch to controlling another player he just runs back to his position), the game also switches the controlled player so you will be running with one player and the computer automatically switches the player you are controlling to another player and leads to you conceding (very very very annoying).
All in all, this game is very badly made.

  FIFA pwnz PES

FIFA is the awesome sauce of the football sims, the manager mode is great, as is the Be A Pro mode. Ultimate team is a good addition too. Much better than previous FIFAs, far more realistic and it has trophies ;)

  Better than PES

Last PES was a big let down, so I got this when on offer and glad I did. It's so realistic you can actually see the grease in Christiano Ronaldo's hair. You can also see the tears in his eyes when his little step overs don't work. I'd recommend, at least until the next PES comes out. I will re-evaluate then.

PES has nothing on this game i have had the game since the first day and i have had pro for a few months and i think that the overall game play of fifa is the best of the two i think that 15 years in become a legend is a bit to much but 3 years is a good length of time i have done a fifa 15 year manager mode twice with glasgow rangers and i have not got boared the only bad thing is that the other clubs only buy off of u and and no one else so i think that is a bit unrealistic that is the only bad thing

I have always been a fifa fan since they first arrived and every game has always been better than its predecessor and this hasnt let the series down. I believe that fifa games have always exceeded the pro-evo games and this does too. Great game.

  the best game i own!

this game is brilliant. the best football game ive played. playing online is great, been able to play interactive league matches, creating your own league, playing the online world cup or just quick ranked or unranked games there is so much to do! i couldnt wait for this game to come out last year, its awesome. forget about pro evolution this is the game!

  Skeptical at first, but well worth it

Having always been a pro evo fan due to its far superior gameplay to fifa i was skeptical to give this a go at first, but the pro evo franchise has failed in its attempts to make a next gen console game that was good. I didn't have the last pro evo on ps3 just the ps2 one which was much much better, the ps3 one was just totally different and ruined everything. So now fifa is miles ahead the gameplay is smooth and brilliant the shooting has improved incredibly. I am shocked it is the same franchise to be honest as the old fifas were ridiculously bad. There are a couple of issues such as player 2 never seems to get to play the advantage when fouled, and after a season and a bit on manager mode it just freezes when i try and go to the next game. But the online is incredible despite the poor losers quitting so damn much. Fifa 09 is a brilliant game and pro evo is now a thing of the past.

Big improvement.. usually games that come out each year i.e fifa, nhl, tiger woods etc.. are just slightly modded and a few extras slapped on, but Fifa 08 to Fifa 09 is a big overhaul.

-Gameplay is much more responsive and very smooth, players react quickly and reasonably realistic.

-Graphix are top notch, bright, colourfull and detailed, an improvement over 08, plus the players don't look like they ate 300 pies before the game.

-Longitivity. this game will keep you going for longer than most sport games. Loads of different modes, be a pro online is great plus there's manager mode and loads of other stuff.

Sound- Tracklist is more melow than the cheesy previous fifa titles, 09 is just easy listening, much less repetive than previous games.

Overall, i don't think there's a bad word i can say,
only for the next installment, fifa 2010, a few more official stadiums like villa park, goodison etc just to make this game even more realistic and enjoyable. and maybe even a goalkeeper mode, playing as a goalkeeper would be kinda kool, and challenging.

so its a very good price-
very good game-
very much well worth it.
