Here's a treat for football lovers with iOS devices! EA Sports has finally released its latest FIFA offering, which means that football crazy folks can now download FIFA 12 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch from the iTunes App Store.
The previous FIFA title for iOS devices was not a universal app, meaning that it was only designed for the iPhone and iPod touch. It could be installed on an iPad but it was never natively designed for that. However FIFA 12 is native for the iPad meaning that the game now capitalizes on iPad's amazing processing and gaming capabilities since it has been tailor made for it.
FIFA 12 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch allows you to:
- Trade players, upgrade staff, and scout for talent. Develop players and choose the best tactics to make your squad the team to beat!
- Featuring over 22 officially licensed leagues, 500 licensed teams and more than 15,000 players. Take to the pitch with superstars like Kaka, Wayne Rooney, Gerard Piqué, Karim Benzema and more. From the English Premiership and La Liga, to the German Bundesliga and beyond – dominate your league and march toward glory in 32 authentic stadiums.
- Capture the passion and power of the world’s most popular sport with unprecedented authenticity. This is the deepest, most visually striking football title ever. Feel every thrill on the pitch with your heroes, anytime, anywhere.
- New control schemes let you handle the ball with greater precision than ever before. Master free kicks and penalty shots with full touch control. Get in the game with realistic 360° player movement and gesture-driven skill moves. Pull off defense-splitting passes, rifling shots, penalty kicks, and pro-style tricks.
- Check out the FREE EA SPORTS ™ Gamepad App. Turn your iPhone into a wireless controller for the ultimate head-to-head experience on your iPad.
The best thing about FIFA 12 is its compatibility with the Gamepad App. In addition to an iPad, if you also have an iPhone or iPod touch you can use them as controllers for the game running on an iPad. This actually redefines gaming experience on the tablet, because now you can make a stand out of your iPad 2 Smart Cover and prop the tablet up on that and enjoy a nice football game in which you use the iPhone or iPod touch as a controller. Really fancy, don't you think?
Before you download though, be warned that FIFA 12 is over 1GB in size and can take a lot of time to download if you are on a slow internet connection. FIFA 12 for iPhone and iPod touch is a slightly toned down version of the game with fewer features and is priced at $4.99. The feature packed FIFA 12 for iPad is priced at $9.99.
