Manual vs. Assited

In FIFA 09, your game will be automatically set to Assited Controls. This means that whenever you take a shot, the computer will greatly alter your shot from what you specified in terms of power and direction. In some cases, this can be useful, but usually it isn't because the ball goes exactly where you want it to go with Manual Controls. Now when you start, you will miss a lot, but once you get good at Manual, if you aim for the top corner correctly, your shot will go top corner. Read more here.

 

Celebrations

A new feature to FIFA 09 is the ability to perform your own unique celebrations after you score, instead of having a computer decided animation like it was in previous versions of FIFA. There are two kinds of celebrations, running moves, such as an "airplane", or a finishing move such as a "jump and punch". There are many more celebrations like these which you can combine to create your own personal celebration. Read more here.
