FIFA 11 for iPhone & iPod Touch: Portable footie redefined [video]
Fans of the popular soccer games know that FIFA 11 was just released for video game consoles yesterday. However, in addition to FIFA on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and FIFA Superstars on Facebook, there is another way to experience the venerable football sim. I'm talking about the new FIFA 11 for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Unlike FIFA Superstars on Facebook, this is no watered down FIFA experience. The FIFA 11 iPhone/iPod Touch game is a full FIFA game featuring dozens of teams, comprehensive and deep gameplay, and some pretty flashy graphics for a game played on a phone.
Continue reading to see some footage straight from the upcoming FIFA 11 iPhone/iPod Touch game.
If you didn't believe me before when I said FIFA 11 for iPhone and iPod Touch would be a legitimate footie game, check out the videos below. As always you'll have to dribble, pass, defend, and score your way to victory. Don't forget to use that ever important Through Ball button.
The first video shows off the penalty kick taking system in FIFA 11 for iPhone and iPod Touch. The second video displays a little more action as we get to see a somewhat floppy Real Madrid goal.
So yeah, I think us veterans can agree that whoever was playing in the videos above is terrible at FIFA 11. They not only managed to botch a penalty kick with David Villa, but they also managed to concede a goal when their defenders heavily outnumbered Real Madrid striker: Gonzalo Higuain. Regardless, you got to see a glimpse of the FIFA 11 iPhone and iPod Touch game in action before it hits the app store. You have to admit, it looks pretty gorgeous and fluid for an iPhone/iPod game.
There is a catch: To play FIFA 11 on iPhone and iPod Touch you must have a recent model: a third generation iPod Touch or an iPhone 3g. Sorry about that old iPod owners.
Look out for the FIFA 11 iPhone/iPod Touch game, sure to be available very soon (it's already out in New Zealand right now).
