Given Sony's support for the platform and its steady sales it's no surprise to see FIFA on Sony's ageing console for the ninth time (not including mid-season releases). With fans eager for the game to offer something new yet again, and EA clearly focussing on modern consoles, is FIFA 09 on PS2 worth buying?
For long-time FIFA PS2 players there's good and bad news. The good news is that EA hasn't simply updated the player rosters and slapped a new name on the box. Numerous changes and enhancements have been made to last year's game and new game modes have been included. The bad news is that unless you played last year's game obsessively it'll be hard to notice many of these changes. This was always going to be the case considering how many FIFA games have been released on the PS2, but worth bearing in mind before you head to the local store, cash in hand."
