With the recent release of the wonderful FIFA09 Konami have quite a task in front of them to topple one of the greatest football games ever. Last year's Pro Evolution Soccer was a decent game but can they reclaim the footballing throne with the 2009 update?
Each of these footballing behemoths has a huge following and they have their own individual charms. FIFA is backed by Electronic Arts and has all the offical and financial backing (Premier League etc.) to ensure its success while Pro Evo combines great gameplay with some cool editing options. This year is set to be the toughest battle yet and while both will assuredly reward the football fanatic they have quite different directions.
