A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Using the onscreen joystick isn't an optimal experience on the iPhone or iPod Touch. Users with larger fingers may lose control of their players without knowing why from time to time. Buttons on the right are packed closely together, also, meaning you may accidentally hit the wrong action when playing. Beyond that, though, the controls are easy to pick up and understand.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

A "more games" link takes users to a page listing other EA-developed apps. Also, brands such as Reebok and Nike can be seen in the game on balls and player uniforms.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that FIFA 11 is a soccer simulation game that offers a fairly authentic experience. The game is similar to the console version, in that it sticks to the rules of the sport and offers an enormous selection of teams, stadiums, and even soccer balls. There's nothing controversial, but in order to create an authentic experience there is a fair bit of product placement. There is no multiplayer mode at present, but developer EA says one is "coming soon."

soccer is a good sport for kids

Is it any good?

FIFA 11 is about as authentic a soccer experience as you're going to find, short of stepping onto the pitch yourself. It's a loving tribute to the game of soccer (or "football" as it's called outside of America) and the enthusiasm can carry through to the player. The game is visually gorgeous, but its controls are average at best and can cause a fair bit of frustration.
