Wow. I’m drained. I’ve just spent my lunchtime taking Aston Villa through the FA Cup. We beat such amazing teams as Colchester, Aldershot and Preston on the way through to a final against the mighty Grimsby.

One all after normal time, Carew scored in the first half of extra time to put us ahead and we carried that lead through to the end.


We’re winners!

Anyway, it’s a good game, though not perfect. The AI can do some very strange things at times. I’m not sure if that’s because of the difficulty level or just because it’s a bit rubbish. The highlights sometimes show completely the wrong thing. And I have honestly never heard such a repetitive commentary.

But the controls work well, it looks nice, it’s full of content and you get a fun, tense game of footie out of it. I can’t compare it to any other iPhone football games, because I’ve not played them, but I like this one.

Here’s a picture of the first goal I ever scored.

Beautiful, ain’t it?
