Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Online connectivity plays a more important role in FIFA Soccer 2009 than in previous editions. For one, adding to the game's realism is a new feature (on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions) called Adidas Live Season, with player attributes downloaded on a weekly basis to mirror real-life performances (similar to what EA Sports has done with NBA Live 09). What's more, a new online mode called FIFA 09 Clubs (for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360) lets gamers compete in a 10 versus 10 team match (yes, on 20 different consoles). In short, "footy" fans won't be disappointed with EA Sports' latest kick at the can.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
