OUR FAVOURITES

Love football? Play these games

It’s 8-0 to the champions (you) with these fantastic football titles.

On me head, son! At the end of the day football’s a game of two halves, and if you’re going to give it 110% you’re going to need a title-worthy team around you.

More than a good squad on paper, these games all hit the target and ensure you can get your football fix whether you’re operating in acres of space (lounging on the sofa) or being man-marked (stuck on a morning commuter train). Love football? You’ll love these hat-trick grade hits.

Pick your team

Football is full of heated rivalries but there is one that can divide families and friendships more than any other. No, it’s not the Merseyside or Old Firm derbies, El Classico or England vs. Germany. Instead it’s FIFA vs. PES and it’s a battle that is as heated today as at any point in history.

Shoot or cross? Shoot or cross? It’s got to be the shot, right?

Both FIFA Football and PES 2019 are available for your iPhone and iPad, each bringing stunning graphics, smooth gameplay and a flurry of recognisable stars. And whichever side of the pitch you take to there are no losers here.

Work on your set pieces

Running’s overrated. All that tiki taka passing and moving might be easy on the eye, but if you’re more about the action moments, Score! Hero lays pre-defined plays out in front of you.

Your job is to execute. A perfectly weighted through ball here, an impeccably timed overhead kick into the top corner there, the more of these plays you piece together the further through the game’s engaging and meandering narrative you’ll move.

Overhead kick to top bins, in Score! Hero anything is possible.

Need to practice your finishing? Football Strike challenges you to hit the target from a number of dead ball situations. Just watch out when defensive walls and keepers make an appearance. And if you fancy a change of pace you can switch places, don your goalie gloves and take up residence between the sticks.

Have fun out there, lads

As seriously as we might take it while sat in the terraces or perched in front of the TV, football should be fun. And that applies to the football games we play too.

Trading impeccable realism for a bit more arcade action, SSC 2019 will take you back to the football games of your youth with some top-down, pixelated, pass and shoot action.

SSC 2019 is football gaming as we remember it from our youth.

Want to add more fun and fantasy to your virtual kick-abouts? In Rumble Stars Football you’ve got to fling your team of ability-equipped animals up and down the pitch in a series of player-v-player head-to-heads while Head Ball 2 sees footballers transformed into little more than a giant head and an oversized boot before battling it out in a rough and tumble kick-about.
