Description

One of EAs best selling franchises sees another yearly update, just months after the release of UEFA Euro 2008. However, continuing with the improvements seen in previous games, the developers tweaked the game further, such as adding a new physics model, which brings more realism to collisions, but also increased responsiveness and goalkeeper AI and animations.

Featuring thirty leagues and passing the half-thousand team mark, the game includes the usual modes seen in previous games, with enhancements to the Be a Pro mode, now allowing up to 20 people on 20 different consoles to connect by the Internet and join a 10 vs. single match. There's also a new paid premium mode, named «Adidas Live Season», which tracks the real results of six of the biggest leagues (Barclay’s Premier League, La Liga BBVA, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, Serie A and Mexican Primera Division) to dynamically update players statistics up-to-the-week according to their form and performances. A new online mode, FIFA 09 Clubs*, reserved to PS3 and X360 users, enables gamers to form or join user-controlled football teams of up to 50 friends and field their strongest team when competing in Be A Pro. As FIFA 09 Clubs* will determine the best virtual team in the world teams will be relegated or achieve promotion to different divisions depending on their results.
