FIFA Soccer 2009
Biased, but very happy
I bought this game because i had fifa 08, and i loved it. 08 was honestly my first soccer game since world cup on sega when u.s. hosted it! I had 08 on the ps2, but i also tried it on xbox360, of course the difference was very dramatic. I was so used to the ps2 version that the 360 version just made me angry and i decided i was a ps2 man for as long as it lasted. I also played the ps3 DEMO and THAT was pretty awesome i must say. So, if you played this on ps2, expect the exact same game play. This is the reason i bought it on the ps2 and not the ps3, i expected the same gameplay, and it's almost identical except for hardly noticeable changes, like contact between players. of course they debugged the commentators announcing a wayward shot as blocked. I bought it on ps2 because i wanted to have fun with it and score goals with my favorite players. If you want to seriously be challenged and learn 150 controls, by all means get the next gen console game. The sound on this game is very good; i can hear players grunting when fouled and the ball hitting the keepers hands and passes landing on players' feet. the graphics are similar, except for the menus. The menus have been 'upgraded.' Player bios now have a computer based look to them. The players rankings seem pretty accurate. The soundtrack i think is inferior to the 08 soundtrack but, that's not why we buy these games is it? Overall i'm very happy with the game. If you want the same gameplay as in 08 on the ps2, then 09 on the ps2 is for you. if you're looking for a new experience, then try a next gen console, because the gameplay is almost identical.
Waiting too long!
Well, now that the summer window is over, i can't wait to play this game. With so many big moves this summer, 08 has become useless! I'm an Espana fan, so i hope with their Euro Victory some of their stats and players will be really, really great. I'm also a big Liverpool fan because of the Spanish influences they have, so i hope they have great rated players too. Can't wait with all these HUGE summer moves. Wow, can't wait.
This time the goalie or the keeper has been edited to be more human (look more real). He has been more active than ever. This time when a person gets close to the goalie the goalie realizes to get the ball and gets it with his foot and trips the kicker. This years Fifa Soccer game will be excellent especially with the goalie or keeper.
I can't wait for this game to come out! The FIFA 07 was really fun and so was the 08. But there was no difference in the graphics, so I hope they will improve the graphics more. I cannot wait for this game to come out! I hope to get it the day it comes out.
