Top Xbox 360 Sports Games of 2009
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top sports games of 2009, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
Despite the fact that all the evidence suggests Virtua Tennis is a series stuck in a rut, Virtua Tennis 2009 is still great fun, especially in multiplayer.
Ashes Cricket 2009 is a solid recreation of the sport and this summer's big sporting event, but it's lacking spark and feels a little slight in terms of depth.
If FIFA 10 is Manchester United, then PES 2010 is Aston Villa. Despite flashes of class, only one team is capable of winning the Premier League.
There's no question that Skate 2 is a high quality game, packed to the brim with things to do and one of the best control schemes we've ever had the fortune to use.
Tiger Woods is a game that has been tuned extensively down the years, and with the new precision putting there really isn't a better time to finally jump in.
Madden NFL 10 is a great but complex virtual version of America's Game.
WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2010 is, we're surprised to say, easily the best game in the series to date, and a must-buy for WWE fans - especially if you've been giving it a wide-berth for a few years.
UFC 2009 Undisputed is stylish, fresh and deeply engaging. It is, in short, a bruising powerhouse of a game.
If you're into boxing you're going to love Fight Night Round 4. The physics-based fighting is simply brilliant, the career mode will last you an age and the online functionality is solid.
FIFA 10 is a simulation in the truest sense, and is sure to solidify FIFA's leading position in the two-horse race with PES.
