EA Sports' latest soccer game brings the goods.
FIFA Soccer 09 is an excellent combination of great soccer gameplay, a robust feature set, and a fantastic presentation.
The actual gameplay in the game has been refined from last year's version and is a blast to play since the game is more realistic. The AI has been greatly revised and now plays a lot like you would expect an actual player to do so. You'll see them calling for a through and positioning themselves strategically to get the goal. The new focus on physics that can be found in all EA Sports releases is also found here. Bigger guys have more weight making it easier for them to jostle with smaller players. It will also be harder for them to make a quick turn since the game appropriately tracks their weight.
