5、iOOTP Baseball 2011
对于那些专注于分析数据的棒球粉丝来说，数据比真正的运动动作更为重要。对他们来说，《足球经理》是很适合的游戏，这款游戏在欧洲足球粉丝中很流行。但是在棒球领域中，《iOOTP》是他们唯一的选择。iOOTP以《劲爆美国棒球》为基础并将这款以文字为核心的游戏加以深化和润色。将游戏移植到iOS平台上似乎是个正确的选择。但是需要注意的是，《iOOTP》适合硬核棒球玩家，并不适合钟爱《Flick Home Run》的粉丝。

7、Baseball Superstars 2011 Pro
坦诚地说，这不是款适合休闲棒球游戏玩家的作品。尽管游戏的图像略显卡通化，但《Baseball Superstars》却是款硬核模拟游戏。游戏提供的大量自定义选项和模式最初可能会让你觉得晕头转向，但创建角色并花些时间阅读用户手册，玩几次你就可以熟悉整款游戏。如果你愿意在错综复杂的RPG元素和赛季模式中投入大量的时间，那么可以尝试下《Baseball Superstars 2011 Pro》。
8、Soccer Superstars 2011
虽然游戏并非完全类似于真正的足球比赛，《Soccer Superstars 2011》仍是款令人震惊的深层次运动游戏，其中的诸多选项使你可以长期投入游戏中。游戏的风格很像老式的超级任天堂游戏，GameEvil将足球这种流行的场地运动同街机设计风格结合起来。游戏并未恪守现实主义，《Soccer Superstars 2011》中有带有特别能力的特别选手，这些球员在比赛中往往能发挥异乎寻常的效果。
尽管游戏带有古典风格的游戏玩法，但《Soccer Superstars 2011》也向你提供了丰富的模式。游戏中呈现了许多个国家，无论你选择世界竞标赛、地区奖杯竞标赛还是成为教练指导球队获得胜利，每个回合都会体验到新的内容。至少，这款游戏可以帮助你打发等待下次世界杯的时间。
《NBA Jam》使用3个虚拟按键（游戏邦注：防守，跳跃/投篮和抢断），还设置虚拟操纵杆用来控制球员的移动，这两种控制方式都运转得十分良好。解说员在解说中会提及球员的名字和动作（游戏邦注：比如“奥巴马投中3分球”），以App Store标准来看，任何类似游戏的售价都不止0.99美元。
10、Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2
许多人表示最棒的《Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater》系列游戏是THP2，现在你可以随身携带这款游戏了。
iPhone版本继承了原游戏的优缺点，使得THP2既是款很棒又偶尔让人倍感失望的游戏。游戏的可携带性与老式Tony Hawk游戏的2分钟时间限制相得益彰，所以你可以在很短的时间内玩出高分，随时可以暂停游戏。主机虚拟控制方式掌握起来较为困难，iOS上的主机移植游戏往往采用的都是这种控制方式。但是，不断练习可以提升你的游戏技能，你熟悉后便可以感受到记忆中的Tony Hawk游戏体验。
The 10 Best Sports Games on the iPhone
This is our first ever roundup of the best sports games on iPhone. The list was compiled with the help of all the editors at GamePro (as well as some of our trusty freelancers), whose taste in sports games range from hyper realistic ball physics and baseball stats to fiery basketballs and super-powered soccer players. Whether you’re a hardcore sports fan looking for mobile versions of the simulations you know and love from home consoles, or more of an arcade gamer looking for quick and fun fix on the App Store, you’re sure to find something to love in our list of the best 10 sports games on the iPhone.
10 | Madden 12
Madden 12 is arguably the most comprehensive and best-looking American football game to ever grace the mobile platform. With full playbooks, realistic physics, the ability to audible and create hot-routes, and the likeness of real players and teams, Madden 12 is dripping with authenticity. While dedicated console football fans will find it a bit de-tuned, it’s intuitive interface and ability to be picked up by just about anyone makes it a great entrance into the series.

9 | NFL Rivals
NFL Rivals is an official NFL re-skinning of NaturalMotion’s Backbreaker games. It’s essentially a series of score-based training drills where you run around a football field either scoring touchdowns, or tackling a ball-carrier while avoiding various obstacles, tacklers or blockers.
The controls are simple with quick taps allowing you to juke, spin or showboat around the field, but the depth comes from the continual addition of new challenges and a 3-star rating system that encourages you to pursue new tactics for better scores.
While it’s far from a Madden-esque simulation, NFL Rivals is a sports game that scratches the ‘just one more round’ itch very well.

8 | Flick Soccer!
Flick Soccer! is a free kick game where you use a well-timed, well-weighted flick of the finger to “kick” a ball and try to score goals. Depending on how you flick, and indeed how you “after-touch” the ball with an additional swipe while it’s in flight, you can shoot with the accuracy of a Brazilian dead-all specialist — assuming you practice enough.
The game packs a bunch of different mini-game challenges, including such things as shooting at ever-shrinking targets, and trying to score against an increasingly challenging keeper and defensive wall. They’re all fun, thanks to the fact that the flick-to-kick mechanic is absolutely brilliantly weighted. Its beauty is in its simplicity — it doesn’t take very long to get the general hang of the kick mechanic and start knocking in the goals, but the amount of finessing you’re able to do allows you to gain a mastery of the game that is truly satisfying.

7 | FIFA 2012
FIFA 12 on iPhone is a very solid soccer simulation in the palm of your hand, with plenty to do including daily challenges, quick-matches, and a fairly robust manager mode.
The virtual sticks and buttons are surprisingly effective and positioned so they don’t get in the way of the on-field game. The gesture controls are there to help fine-tune the experience, like helping you get past defenders with a quick double-tap to maneuver the ball, or a swipe up to chip your shots. It’s easily one of the best simulation sports games on the iPhone.

6 | iOOTP Baseball 2011
For some sports fans – especially the more nerdy, stat-analyzing baseball fans who treat Moneyball like the holy scriptures – the actual action of sports is secondary to the information to be gleaned by poring over spreadsheets of the results. For them, there are games like Football Manager, which is very popular amongst European football fans. But for baseball freaks, there is only one solution: iOOTP. iOOTP stands for “Out Of The Park” baseball, and the incredibly deep series of baseball management sims has been around since the late 90′s, so the core text-based game is pretty well refined by now. Moving to the iOS platform seems like a perfect move, since checking on your team and making some roster moves can be a great 5-10 minute diversion. Don’t let the platform fool you though: iOOTP is for serious, hard core baseball stat nerds. Flick Home Run fans should not apply.

5 | Let’s Golf! 3
Even if you’re married to the impressive Lets Golf series, this return to the fairway comes with a fair share of hazards. For one, this title introduces a free-to-play model that only lets you play as many strokes as you have “energy” for — energy that you can either earn (by waiting) or buy (with money). Additionally, the framerate may cause you a few problems during some random swings.
But if you can soldier through the odd functional sand trap, there’s a lot of stuff to do — mini-games, multiplayer matches, skill shots, and a completely odd assortment of holes to play through. And if you want a more personal touch, the new avatar creation system lets you give your golfer of choice a completely custom look. It’s better played on an iPad for accuracy, but an iPhone is the better performing platform — hopefully, some patches will smooth things out.

4 | Baseball Superstars 2011 Pro
With improved pitching controls, better graphics, and more intuitive base-management, Baseball Superstars is back for another year of weirdly deep baseball simulation. Number geeks will love Superstars’ intense season mode, and those who’ve refined their skills with past titles in the series are likely to get a lot of mileage out of the newly revamped online component.
Honestly, this is not a game for people looking for a lightweight, pick-up-and-play baseball game. Despite its cutesy appearance, Superstars is about as hardcore of a simulation game as you can get. The sheer number of customization options and modes it offers might overwhelming, but after creating a character, spending a lot of time reading the manual, and playing a ridiculous number of games you’ll catch on. If intricate RPG elements and season modes that you can sink dozens (if not more) hours into are your thing, by all means pick up your bat and step up to Baseball Superstars 2011′s plate.

3 | Soccer Superstars 2011
Even if it doesn’t exactly resemble real soccer Soccer Superstars 2011 is an incredibly deep sports game with a variety of options available for long-term commitments. Styled much like an old Super Nintendo title, GameEvil’s take on the popular field sport takes the same arcade-y approach that you’ve probably seen in any number of the similar-look Baseball Superstars. Ditching hard realism, SS 2011 features special players with super-powered kicking powers, often with flashy effects.
Coupled with the retro-style gameplay, Soccer Superstars 2011 also gives you plenty of ways to get the ball rolling in several modes. Numerous countries are represented in the game, and whether you play a world tour, regional cup tournaments, or simply coach a team to victory, there’s something new to do at each turn. At the very least, it’ll help you pass the time until the next World Cup.

2 | NBA Jam
This iOS port has all of the playable characters you’d expect from the console versions of the game, including special characters like mascots and political figures like President Obama and Sarah Palin. The classic two-on-two game comes packed with a campaign mode, dozens of challenges that allow you to unlock legendary players, and a classic “play now” option for whenever you feel like dunking a burning basketball over the enlarged heads of some AI opponents.
NBA Jam uses three virtual buttons (turbo, jump/shoot, and steal/shove) as well as a virtual stick for movement, and that all works surprisingly well. Everything from the way players move to the shouting announcer who knows the names of every single player (“Obama goes for the three-pointer!”) smacks of a game that should cost far more than $0.99, especially by App Store standards.
Aside from its unfortunate lack of two-player options, this is a complete package that controls beautifully and has production values that could easily rival that of the Wii version’s. Even if you’re not a huge NBA fan, this is a basketball game that can stand on its own based purely on the fun offered by its mechanics.

1 | Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2
Many say that the best Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game is THPS 2 (even though the correct answer is THPS 3), and now you can carry it wherever you go.
The iPhone inherits the pros and cons of the original game, making THPS2 both great and occasionally a little frustrating. Its portability works well with the 2 minute time-limit of the old Tony Hawk games, so you do a few high-score runs and the put it down – or sit down for a marathon session if you have time. The virtual controls are a bit tricky to get to grips with, as they often are in iOS console game ports, but practice makes perfect, and once you’re up to speed it’s the same great Tony Hawk experience you remember.
