    Its not much different from FIFA 08, if you've played that. FIFA 09 is actually not bad... especially when you're winning LOL

    On the contrary, this is by far the best soccer game for the DS.
    2009 gameplay is much improved over 2008 - faster framerate means more fluid, responsive matches.
    Unfortunately this seems to have made the online WFC matches much more laggy than the 2008 version.
    I haven't checked the download play to compare yet.

    If you like soccer games then you'll know FIFA and know what to expect, if you don't know soccer then this is the one to get.

    There's a bug in the Euro version of FIFA '09 where the player's squad in manager mode gets shuffled and mixed around randomly. Other then that, it's a good game. I hope the bug isn't in the US version.

    Yeah I had that bug. The way to fix it is to update your roster on WiFi and just check in Classic mode. It sorted it out for me but I can't remember if it fixed the Be A Pro mode, don't think it did actually. WiFi is a bit messed up.

    PSP version is actually pretty good. Does this also have the Be A Pro mode? Cause that's full of win.

    I don't know about the US version,but I am pretty sure you can name your player in Be a Pro mode in the Europe version.
    Anyways FIFA 09 is better than FIFA 08.Gameplay is more fluid.

    I really need to get this for Wii, the (E) version I'm running on my NTSC-U system seems be kind of glitchy , and I really hope it's due to the different region settings.
    My brother plays a lot of FIFA 08 on the DS, and he categorically refuses to play it on the Wii.....and he's crazy about the online mode.
    Hopefully with this release he will detach himself from FIFA 08( there are less and less worthwhile competitors now ) and start play something new, and maybe migrate to the Wii and accept to play a few games with me, now that you can use the GC controller he shouldn't have any excuse not to.
