Fifa 09 is a long going game which has left many competitors such as Pro Evo in its dust over the past couple of years. There is a wide range of new features that have come to the latest version of the game with the new Be A Pro Season mode which allows you to control the team thought tactics as you control just one player throughout the whole season. You can tell the players when to pass to you, when to tackle, when to shoot and when to mark other players. This is a new feature really tests players to see if they know how to position their players in effective positions as you are given a rating for how you perform when marking and you can also get selected for your national team.
There is an online mode for this as well as 20 people play online each control one player (excl. keeper).
Manager Mode is the same as it has always been but allows a new camera angle which allows you to play partially in the players perspective when you go to shoot for goal. This brings you more into the game and is very effective.
You can still create your own player but sadly you cannot create your own team which is a disappointment.
As usual the commentators regularly get on your names with their repetitive phrases but you can now download new packs which gives them fresher phrases but also for download is Adidas live season which allows you to download weekly the latest squads and the player performance. If you buy the game new you can get one for free as they cost quite a lot for what they are really.
There are also the general online modes, season mode and the normal match.
As usual the sounds are some of the best, and the in game music is very good. There is supposed to be a patch coming out soon which allows you to put your own music in the game.
This is a good upgrade from even Fifa 08 as it brings a lot of new features and outstanding graphics. You can play this game for as long as it takes for the new game coming out.
With what this game shows i cannot wait for what they are planning for the next game.
