    I've played the demo on the XBOX and its a huge improvement on 08. The through ball actually works now, the first touch passing is crisp and fluid, and the referee is back!!

    Only nag I have so far is the animation on Offside calls all four defenders raising their hands at exactly the same time so they look more like a syncronised swimming team.

    Oh that and you can't slide tackle the Ref.

    I love that they cut out a lot of the old EA auto-assist and let the ball move more freely. It's so much easier to get set pieces into the box and the first touch like Mod say is way better.

    Played the demo and it feels better then the last years version but through passes at their default setting are still horrible. Some other minor annoyances are still there, but thats partially because I don't know the complete control scheme yet. Presentation is impressive though. One thing that doesn't seem changed, which I had major issues with last year, is that there is no sense of difficulty. If you play on anything above beginner...all teams whether they are 4 or 1 star play almost at the same difficulty. There is no clear gap in quality between teams on opposite ends.
