2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa iPhone Game

With just 6 weeks to go, the guys from EA Sports have officially launched the 2010 FIFA World Cup iPhone game(iTunes Link). The game which showcases all the teams and host cities from the 2010 event.

I downloaded the app this morning, which costs $6.99 on the app store, is well well worth the cash spent. This is a fully fledged game, which you would be paying close on R600 for the playstation version. The graphics are fantastic on the iPhone, and the live commentary adds to the overall experience.You can also choose a team and play the whole tournament, as well as play a once off game against specific teams. The app also has a mulitplayer option, which lets you play against your mates using WiFi. Check out the video on the EA Sport site

From the EA Press release:

The 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa videogame will feature all the emotion and passion of the fiercest national rivalries battling on the world’s biggest stage, with all 199 national teams that took part in qualification and all 10 official stadiums to be used in South Africa. Gamers will be able to play as their home nation from qualification right through to a virtual reproduction of the FIFA World Cup Final™ and feel what it is like to score the goal that lifts a nation.

The models of the staudiums are modeled to perfection, and it’s awesome to see South Africa being represented on this global scale.

Even if you aren’t a sports fan, or a soccer fan, but have an iPhone, I highly suggest you download yourself a copy of the game. Let me know your thoughts below on what you think of the game.
