We get it, FIFA Mobile is great. It has many aspects to its gameplay, such as managing a team, training it, deploying it on the field, and leading it to victory, through which it will climb the world ranks and leaderboards. However, despite its awesome gameplay and strategic team management features, the game’s ultimate flaw (if you can actually call it that) is that it’s only limited to soccer.
Have you ever played FIFA Mobile and thought to yourself “Wow, this game is great. I wish there was a similar game, but for other sports.”? Well, trust us when we say you’re not the only one. Luckily, there are other sports game out there that are equal, if not better, than FIFA Mobile, at least in terms of gameplay. Most of these games are developed by EA, which is the same company behind the hugely-popular soccer game, so you can expect the same level of quality when playing. However, there are also some other games that, while arguably as good as the AAA mobile games, are still less popular and live in the shadows of the big titles of the industry.
In this brief guide, we’ll go over 5 other sports games that you might enjoy if you liked FIFA Mobile. Keep in mind, not all of these are sports sims like FIFA. Some of them might be more arcadey in their gameplay, which makes for a different experience than when playing FIFA. Nevertheless, this difference is exactly what makes them fun on a whole other category, and is the reason why you should try them at least once if you’re looking for other engaging sports games.
Without further ado, here is our list!
Just like FIFA, Madden NFL was developed by EA Sports and is the mobile version of the hugely popular football franchise on consoles. It has similar elements to FIFA Mobile, which makes it an interesting mix of football manager sim, coupled with hardcore gameplay elements that bring the action of every play directly to your screen. Also, in the same vein as FIFA, your team in Madden is expanded and customized through a card system that represents players. You can use these cards to create your own lineups and challenge your team against others in the struggle the become the best in the world.
Graphically, the game is gorgeous, and more so if you play it on BlueStacks, which allows you to play your favorite mobiles games from the comfort of your computer, and on your large monitor, bringing each game to life in full HD graphics and with better performance than on most mobile devices.
Developed by Gamevil, a Korean company focused exclusively on the creation and release of video games for mobile devices. If a large company like Gamevil is dedicated exclusively to one thing, you can bet that it’s going to be good. Their previous baseball games featured an anime aesthetic coupled with some RPG elements. However, with MLB Perfect Inning, they went all out and created a licensed baseball sim that’s up there with the biggest in the industry.
In this game, players begin their career by choosing their favorite team, which they will then control through the matches and challenges that the game has in store for them. They will also be able to acquire and collect other players that they can add to the lineup in order to strengthen their team and be able to take on more complex challenges. The idea of the game is to complete missions, acquire achievements, and to make their way to the top of the MVP rankings.
We’re dialing the action down a bit with this awesome golf game. This game is the definition of golf sim. Using their very own patented 3D photorealistic advanced georeferencing technology, developer World Golf Tour Media brings to life some of the most famous and storied golf courses straight into the player’s screen. In this game, players can engage in all sorts of game modes, from the standard single-player experience to playing with friends and people over the internet in matches of up to 4 players at a time. The players can either play some challenges to improve their game or participate in tournaments to receive awesome prizes.
Some of the most famous 18-hole golf courses featured in this game are the following:
- United States
- Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Oregon
- Chambers Bay, Washington
- Congressional Country Club, Maryland
- Merion Golf Club, Pennsylvania
- The Olympic Club, California
- United Kingdom
- Old Course at St Andrews, Scotland
- Royal St George’s Golf Club, England
- Hilversumsche Golf Club, Utrecht
There are other courses available for closest-to-the-hole challenges, which consist mostly of 9 holes, and also include many venues from the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands.
This is another golf game, but with a spin. Even if you don’t enjoy watching or playing golf, you might have a laugh or two, and possibly a bit of fun with SSG3.
This game does away with any pretense of simulating the real sport, and uses wacky physics and a side-scrolling design to create entertaining golf “courses.” Instead of real golf mechanics, this entry plays more like a physics-based puzzle game, featuring around 20 courses and hundreds of holes that can be completed through wit, cunning, and careful strategizing. In terms of gameplay, you’ll find that this game is more akin to Angry Birds, Cut The Rope, or any other similar games that must be beaten by using physics and timing. If you don’t like golf sims but are looking for a great game to pass the time, then this one might be right down your alley.
As you complete challenges, you will unlock avatars, ball trail effects, and dozens of equipment with their own unique game traits and attributes. Furthermore, if you’re tired of playing by yourself, you can also engage in multiplayer games.
Racing game fans rejoiced when Real Racing 3 became free-to-play, as this is one of the most graphically impressive mobile games we’ve ever laid our eyes on. There’s really not much to say about this game that the screenshot doesn’t convey. It allows players to compete in some of the most famous tracks, which are brought to life in a gorgeously-rendered fashion. However, the small mobile screen fails to do it justice; the best way to enjoy this masterpiece of a racing game is on BlueStacks, on your PC monitor, so that you can truly revel in the details that the game creates.
Graphics aside, players can engage in several game modes, including the classic time trial, as well as your standard races, and the unique Time Shift multiplayer mode. Furthermore, the developers are constantly updating the game with new cars, tracks, and events, to keep the gameplay varied and fresh.
These are 5 of the best mobile sports game that we’ve had the luck of finding, all of which you can download from the App Center on the BlueStacks app. Do you think there are other games that deserve a spot on this list? Share your suggestions in the comments below!
