With the kick off of the Memorial Day weekend here in the US, Electronic Arts has posted another one of their blowout sales for the holiday. Now through Monday you can save on 49 different iOS games in the App Store. Some of these include FIFA 12 for iPad, Mass Effect Infiltrator, Madden NFL 12, Real Racing 1 & 2 and so on. If you have been waiting to buy some of these games, this is the weekend to do it.
Just use the link below to go to the EA page in the App Store to see the full list of games they have and their sale price.
Whether you call it football, soccer, the “beautiful game” or something else, the most world wide watched sport in the world is Soccer (or football). An estimated 19.4 million people in the United States watched the World Cup final last year even when the US team had been eliminated in the round of 16. Compare that to the 19.1 million who watched the Super Bowl and the 18.4 million average for the World Series and you get the pictures – and this doesn’t even count more soccer crazy countries such has England, Italy, Mexico and Brazil to name just a few.
Capturing the game play of soccer in a video game is difficult but EA Sports has managed to do this with FIFA 12 for iPhone and iPad. The FIFA franchise for Electronic Arts has done well for them on a variety of platforms and they have had an iOS version for a couple of years now. Last years FIFA 11 was good but FIFA 12 is all-that-much-better. With smooth game controls, great graphics and the ability to play in multiple game modes – Quick Play, Daily Challenge and Manager Mode – this is a game every soccer fan should have and even the casual fan will enjoy.
All those fantastic graphic come at a price in the size of the download – a whopping 1.06GB. To get FIFA 12 you really need to download via iTunes if you can or have your iPhone or iPad connected via WiFi. But if you are patient I think you’ll find it well worth the time and space on your iPhone or iPad.
Of the many game developers for iPhone and iPad, Electronic Arts (follow on Twitter @EAMobile) has had many of the most popular franchises out there. Most know about Madden NFL for iPhone and iPad but if you are into football – or as we say here in America, soccer – then they have you covered there as well. The FIFA franchise gives you all of the game action you would expect from EA Mobile along with management of the players and the ability to play entire seasons throughout many national soccer leagues. Now with FIFA 11 HD, the game is finally brought to the iPad.
FIFA 11 HD is identical to FIFA 11 for iPhone but takes full advantage of the larger display and provides fantastic graphics and game play. If you have played FIFA 10 in the past on your iPhone then the controls on the iPad in FIFA 11 HD will be very familiar to you. You can play a variety of leagues throughout the world including the Barclay’s Premier League in England and the MLS here in the United States, with all of the most popular players available to you as well.
FIFA 11 HD will require just over 800MB of storage on your iPad so keep that in mind when you download it. I recommend you doing it from your PC or Mac via iTunes instead of your device itself.
FIFA 11 HD is $9.99 and available in the App Store now. If you want the iPhone version it is on sale for only .99 Cents.
