following on from the dysmal port that was 2009 express, Dynamo have rebuilt the 2010 game for the iphone including DLC for season stats.

oki i took the plunge with it, despite a real dislike of 09 express.

with low expectations i fire this game up and greeted with a much nicer interface than this games previous idevice offering. only 1 game into the season so far and im fairly impressed.

whereas 09 was a straight port with minor alterations to suit the idevices, they appear this time to have rewritten the game with a much nicer style of menus and screens. everything seems quite logical and there is a noticeable increase in game depth, although its still a far cry from its desktop cousins. i was unable to arrange any friendlies for the pre-season so entered the 1st match with no idea on how the team would perform, its was a 2-2 draw away from home against good opposition .. i am happy

sometimes it can crawl a little when you are hopping from 1 day to the next but considering teh sort of data its crunching i found it still managed to flow very well. there is an autosave but id still recommend saving often in case of device crashes. indeed, the game has crashed once so far, or appeared to freeze when i used the short cut menu. the squad selection, which had many people infuriated with, me included, in the last version is much better. yay!

the in game match commentary is perhaps a bit of a let down, i sped it up a little to get through the first game, but the commentary seems out of sorts and confusing, in fact both the goals i scored appeared to be when my team 'dots/players' were defending .. weird! id like to know if others are getting this happening, if so it needs a fix quickly.

there are press conferences which affect your player, media, board and fan standings. they seem to appear quite frequently but this early on in the season i cant tell if they are intrusive or useful as yet.

the transfer market is much improved. i found searching for and finding players much better this time round, although there are plenty of noticeable player omissions, i suspect the updates will sort this out.

which leads me finally onto the DLC aspect. you start the game with player stats from july 09, although for a one of fee you can purcahse in game updates to seasonal transfers etc. not tried this pout but the default stats do appear to be a little out of date.

so these are really early impressions, but its a big improvement on 09 fer me so far.

Would someone who knows NOTHING of soccer/football like this game? I'm kinda interested in it...and if so, is the 09 version (which is 4 dollars cheaper) good enough for someone like me?

This actually looks like a proper iPhone game now, the 09 version is an absolute shocker.

Though by the sounds of it they've left most of the core game the same.
