I can't believe I just spent $5 on this right when it came out and now it's a buck? I should have waited I guess(:

Not to be rude or anything, but if you have any experience with the AppStore, you should have seen this coming. Especially with EA who periodically puts their games on sale. Besides, they decide the price so unless they have promised to keep the price at $5, they have the right to change it, both legally and morally.

Exactly. I knew it would drop to $0.99 in a couple of weeks. With thanksgiving, halloween, christmas and new year around around the corner, there's just no way it wouldn't drop to $0.99, but I bought it anyway as I wanted to play the game. I know I love football and football game, so I don't mind.

I usually wait for price drops on games I'm not sure I'd love, and I'm often glad I wait since some of the games, no matter how well reviewed or hyped they were, don't fit my taste. I use the money I save on these games to get the games I love (either the game, or the character, eg. Dead Space, Batman Arkham City, Sonic CD).

ps: At least it was $5 in the US. They were charging $6 in other countries (the equivalent of USD 6, not $6 in the respective countries) where football is popular.

Same here. I bought it at full price and couldn't care less about the 2 or 3 bucks I might have saved if I had waited for the price to drop to $0.99. I've already spend countless hours playing this game and totally love it! The gameplay itself is almost perfect. The only thing that could be enhanced, in my opinion, are the menus... but that's just a minor complaint and all in all its a superb game and a real must-have!

I didn't buy this when it came out, because I still was playing FIFA 11! In my opinion FIFA is the best soccer game for the iPhone!

I doubt it will replace First Touch but for $.99 why not.

How does this compare to FIFA 11? Exact same game or any different? I know EA has had a tendency lately to just copy and paste their games when they release a sequel and I've already got '11.
