FIFA 12 and NBA Jam arrive on Android
FIFA 12 shouldn't need much of an introduction to our UK and European readers, who've probably already bought the game on the home consoles, anyway (going by its frankly scary sales figures).
Still, for the uninitiated, FIFA 12 is the latest version of the amazingly successful football / soccer franchise, with updated graphics, better controls, and more realistic gameplay than previous editions on mobile.
We liked it a lot when it was originally released on iOS, so unless something terrible happened during the porting process, we'd expect this Android version to sate the desires of all you ardent footy fans out there.In a jam
NBA Jam, meanwhile, will likely mean little to most of our UK and European readers, no doubt to the chagrin of our cousins across the Atlantic.
It's a less realistic, and much more bombastic, take on everyone's favourite squeaky trainers game than, say, NBA 2K12, with officially licensed players sporting heads that look like they could topple off the body at any second.
The fast-paced and arcade-oriented gameplay managed to earn NBA Jam a bronze medal on iOS, with its lack of online multiplayer (still missing in this version) being one of the few major fouls committed on court.
