About FIFA 09

Powered by the third generation of the EA SPORTS football engine, FIFA Soccer 09 features more than 250 core gameplay additions and enhancements that deliver the most responsive, intelligent and realistic action ever for the series. Enjoy turning defenders with more controlled dribbling and ball control, snapping off precision shots with improved first-time shooting mechanics and firing beautifully timed passes with greater accuracy, placing the ball exactly where you want it. With new player momentum physics the speed and weight of the player determines everything from the distance of a slide tackle and the power of a header to the severity of player collisions and the height of a player’s jump. Plus, players now behave according to their physical attributes with larger, stronger players dominating collisions, battles for control of the ball, and position in challenges for two player headers.

Summary

FIFA 14 for PS4 doesn't make drastic changes to its current-gen version, but the enhanced graphics, new animations, and improved player awareness make it one of the strongest PS4 launch titles.

We like

  • Improved graphics and overall presentation
  • New animations enhance realism
  • Greater player awareness

We dislike

  • Players still slightly off
  • Some missed opportunities in crowd overhaul
  • Not a giant leap for the franchise
