Over the past few years, Fifa has continuely become worse. While this still isnt a bad game, you see some stupid things and there is no freedom. Theres nothing spectacular that you can really do. You see some really stupid and unrealistic things from the opposition that would shock you if you saw in an actual game. Ive always been a FIFA guy, but after playing PES a few times, you see it compares to real life games a lot better.
I have played just about every edition of the FIFA series and it gets better every time. This one does have a couple of very minor problems but nothing worth moaning about. The frustration of scoring a fantastic goal then being given offside is just like the real thing. I can't wait for FIFA 10. I will be having it. FIFA 09 is fantastic though. Being able to play for your favourite team is great but put yourself in a team with 1 Star then play a tourney on Professional and see how much fun it is. You get a good sense of achievement when you knock out a good side. For example, I played for the Irish side Bohemians and knocked out Liverpool at Anfield in a Tournament at the Quarter Final Stage and was promptly rewarded with a tie against Barcelona. It makes for the excitement of the game. Just buy it and enjoy it.
Last year i was a bit wary of buying fifa because i belived last year that Pro evolution scoccer was a better game and had much better gameplay than fifa but i decided to buy it anyway on the release date and from that day it blew my mind , it is the best fifa ever and beats Pro evolution by miles , there are a few things which need to be sorted for fifa 10 but other than that its amazing but takes alot of getting used to,
