X2 Soccer 2010 seems to be one of the first games to actually support iOS 4 multitasking, a feature that’s only available on the iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch third generation, and the iPhone 4. While it’s not a huge update, the main issue here seems to be the online multiplayer stability fixes.
Since my review, I have not played one full online multiplayer match. The farthest I’ve gone is about 3 minutes before I inevitably disconnect from the server and have to go through the entire connecting process again. Hopefully the update will fix these issues, as I am dying to show off my soccer skills to the world.
I haven’t been able to test the update yet though, since people don’t seem to be playing online (waiting for games for atleast 5 minutes now), and I’m not sure if it’s because of a lack of players or the fact that the update did absolutely nothing.
While I’d like to believe the former, it would be nice if X2 Games fixed the framerate issues, animation problems, and sprinting control issues. Some higher resolution graphics for the iPhone 4 would be quite nice also, although I’m not expecting too much for now.
With that said, hopefully this update will fix all of mine (and your) online multiplayer woes.
