FIFA 09 Demo Coming Tomorrow
Another week, another PlayStation Store update. Tomorrow, soccer fans in both Europe and North America will get the chance to sample this year's FIFA installment, and those of you who enjoyed Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 should definitely give it a try.
We've been hearing nothing but good things in regards to FIFA 09, and it wouldn't surprise anyone to learn that this is EA's finest sports game of the year. Granted, many soccer sim fans have already turned to the competing PES series, but EA has plenty of surprises in store for their effort. Those of you who really know a lot about the sport should weigh in on that demo tomorrow, and there's a recommendation found at XenonX for PES lovers: the say that if you want the "true FIFA experience," turn the passing assists to "Manual" and the shooting assists to "Semi." As we have yet to play the game, we're not entirely sure how this affects the gameplay, but we're certain such alterations can be (and are) significant. This demo is free, of course, and it'll give you a great idea of just how far this particular series has come over the past five years or so.
FIFA 09 will release on October 3, and if you're still on the fence concerning a purchase, this demo is just the ticket. And hey, if you have some strong opinions on it, be sure to post your thoughts in the forums; this is guaranteed to be one of the biggest international hits of 2009.
