Time to splash the cash.


Recommendation of the Week: FIFA 09, PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, Wii, DS, PSP and PC

There's really only one release on everyone's lips this week and that's FIFA 09. Once again EA takes steps towards footballing perfection, delivering another highly impressive sim of the beautiful game. If you want the stunning presentation, the licensed teams and leagues, the best online play and the most football-like gameplay, FIFA 09 is your best option. With PES 09 not due for release until October 17 FIFA has a few weeks with the market all to itself although that hasn't meant EA has rested on its laurels. This is the best FIFA to date.
