Don’t Worry, Be ‘Appy: FIFA 10

by Neil Sherwin

One of Electronic Arts’ biggest earners, FIFA ’10, gets the iPhone treatment and proves to be a very handle asset to have.

Application – FIFA 10

Available From – iTunes store

Cost - €4.99 / £5

Rating – 9 / 10

Create your own future superstar — ONLY with FIFA 10 by EA SPORTS™. Track his play in multiple seasons. Earn skills in competition against the world’s finest soccer players, and build your legend!

Featuring 30 leagues, 570 and over 12,000 players, EA Sports’ FIFA 10 offers iPhone users the chance to control club or country in up to 20 licensed tournaments and cup competitions.

The application maintains the use of an analog control system, while two buttons on the right side of the screen are enough to control all types of passes, crosses, tackles and shots.

The more complex moves, such as lofted throughballs, require a bit of practice as you are required to slide your thumb quickly from one button to the other in such a fashion that you control the power bar at the same time.

It can be quite tricky at first but adds a certain level of difficulty to the game.

An excellent feature which many may have thought would not transfer well from the full version of the game is ‘Be A Pro’, however it is as slick as its big screen version allowing you to control your own individual player in career mode.

The standard Training and Penalty Shootout modes are also available for you to hone your skills.

Multiplayer mode is also available but only via local wifi.

I’m not one to part with money easily when it comes to getting applications, but FIFA ’10 was well worth every cent and will have you charging your battery on a much more regular basis than usual.

Make sure to keep an eye for the 2011 version which should be out later this year.
