Play soccer with your Android phone without kicking the device
With the three headed Wade-Bosh-James monster still not ready to rear its head in Miami for over 2 months, with plenty of time before the NFL season kicks off and weeks ahead of us before Pennant Fever grips baseball fans, the after-glow from the World Cup still has an impact on U.S. sports fans. With football, as it is called outside the U.S., being the number one sport in most other countries, now is a good time for a soccer simulation game for your Android handset. EA is offering FIFA 10, which is a version of the PC/console game.

EA is the only company that has the rights to make a soccer game using names and logos of real players and teams. You can select from different modes like exhibition, manager mode or put together your own tournament. As a player, you can train, be a Pro or play a penalty kick-shootout game. A combination of the accelerometer and A and B buttons along with specific screen touches helps you move your player on your touchscreen display and there is a learning curve involved so don't expect to be playing like Ronaldo, Pele or Beckham right away. FIFA 10 will cost you $7 and is available at the Android Market or you can scan the QR code at the source link.

This looks really good for android, and I am glad big developers like EA are making games on other platforms. Can anyone clarify what "Through ball" means... I could understand "Throw ball."

Through ball is when you kick the ball forward through the defenders, its good if you are at mid field and want to give the ball to a striker that is further up the field.

I've never owned an Android device, could you please explain me what you have to do to get android titles like this running on several devices? What I mean is... there are phones with different resolutions, processors, ram, etc. How does the game perform on each device? i.e. If I was to get a cheap android phone, could I run all this stuff on it? and how about resolution issues or so? Thanks!

Best is to visit the developer's website... I think most likely they will list supported devices.

Not all android devices are compatible with all the titles from the android Market?

No, they will not work with every phone because of what NOVAinc said - every phone has different specs. That's why you get an Iphone. Android is too all over the place and messy - although some other features are better, but not for apps.

Not seeing it for my Evo, kind of wack considering the specs on my phone should be just fine to support this game.

That is, your EVO is too much for this game, FIFA don't deserve to be on it. Wait for the PC version to be released on the EVO :P
