EA's leading football franchise hits the iPad with a match-winning strike

FIFA 11 Review

by on January 25, 2011

Attempting to emulate its console reared counterpart and dominate its app-based genre, EA’s footballing behemoth has landed on the iPad with a fanciful feast of content despite sadly hitting a number of stumbling blocks along the way.

Without a doubt the most comprehensive and graphically impressive football game release for the iPad yet, pipped only by Flick Kick Football in terms of sheer addictiveness, FIFA 11 is perhaps hampered by its inspiring reputation and arsenal of console-based memories.

Despite being offered a bevy of gaming options and a simply astonishing number of teams to play as, actual gameplay is slightly slow with player movements and AI more than occasionally jilted, unresponsive and predictable.

Controls are the now iPad familiar, touchscreen joystick and three touchscreen buttons for passing, shooting and switching players. Whilst this is undoubtedly the most efficient and user-friendly way of handling the iPad control system, it loses some of the game’s instinctive flow from the controller touting console editions.

Looking at FIFA 11 solely as an Apple tablet bound application game you would be hard pressed to fault its impressive haul of features and selective options, however, with such a reputable and formidable history to the franchise, we can’t help but wish it matched its PS3 and Xbox counterparts.
