The 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa is well and truly on. In fact, as I punch this post out this morning, Chile and Honduras are locked in a battle. Score is 1-0 for Chile, and they’ve just started the second half. So far, not a bad game! At any rate, with football (soccer) clearly on the mind, I thought I’d take a quick look to see if I could find any football (er, soccer) gaming goodness for the BlackBerry user. After a few minutes of looking, I was greeted with a new title from the folks at Bplay… the aptly titled 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa game!
In this ‘only official World Cup game for mobile’, you get to choose from 105 international teams and take to the field as the country of your choice. Make lineup changes, set strategies and player positioning, and take to the field. 3 life-like stadiums are included in the game, modeled to look just like the ones being used in South Africa as we speak.
To get a better idea of the gameplay, be sure to check out the preview video above. Sure, this is no PS3 game, but if you’re a huge soccer (er, football 🙂 ) fan, I could see FIFA World Cup 2010 coming in real handy. Especially during those meetings you catch yourself falling asleep in. Put your device on silent, put your head down, and… GOAAAAAAALLLLLL! 🙂
FIFA World Cup 2010 for BlackBerry is available for most current gen (and many older gen) BlackBerry devices. The entire Pearl (including the Pearl Fip) series, Curve and Bold series are compatible, as is the Storm and Storm 2. The Tour 9630 should be good-to-go as well.

Note: Sadly I don’t think the Vuvuzela horn sounds are worked into the audio on this one. But hey, that’s probably a good thing, right? 🙂
