FIFA 11 Review
by on October 19, 2010
Taking the football gaming rivalry to much smaller touch screen surroundings, the Pro Evolution 2011 iPhone app impressed us when we got our hands on it, but EA’s latest outing shows FIFA continues to lead on the Apple smartphone front too.
The first notable difference from FIFA 10 is the graphics; EA tells us that they have incorporated a PSP game engine which married with the iPhone 4’s retina display delivers player sprites that are sharper and more fluid than ever before.
Opting to revamp gameplay over game modes, EA has scrapped ‘Be a Pro’ mode and ‘Manager’ mode from last year, and focuses on league and cup competitions from across the globe including the Johnstone Paints Trophy for the lower league football fans of you. There’s also a multiplayer option which is not yet up and running, but we imagine will prove a popular element of FIFA 11.
The virtual control pad feels more responsive this time around, making the range of passing easier to master, while pulling off skills which seemed impossible in FIFA 10, are now performed by a simple double tap of the screen. 360 degree movement is another notable addition, most crucial however, is the ability to switch players and make attacking runs off the ball simply by tapping on them the screen, reducing the amount of times players effortlessly waltz through your defence as you scramble to select the closest player.
Now here’s the problem, if you choose to purchase this app, be prepared to spare around 1GB of your storage. If you are willing to sacrifice a sizeable amount of your iTunes library though, you’ll be getting yourself comfortably the best football iPhone app game on the App Store, until FIFA 12 arrives we imagine.
