It's obviously not the first time that a sports figure or an athlete give name to its own and personal video game. Real Madrid coach, José Mourinho, will also have a video game copyrighted with his name: "Mourinho Special One", which was also developped by the Portuguese company, Biodroid and have a release date announced to January 2012. However, it's this new Cristiano Ronaldo video game that is sparking a lot of interest among football fans, as well as in those who appreciate everything that is made available for Apple's iPhones and iPads.
In a quick attempt to describe "Cristiano Ronaldo Freestyle", we can say that it is more of a rhythm and dancing game, where the user is intended to play at the sound of a background music and on-screen commands. We'll list below some of the features included in this game:
- There are 5 gameplay modes to choose from:
Hype Endurance: The user can perform hype tricks, while he juggles the ball to get the crowd's attention as quickly as possible.
Time Attack: The objective is to obtain as many points as possible in the period that the song lasts.
Freestyle Battle: You're asked to compete in a 1-on-1 situation.
Don’t Drop the Ball: As the name implies, you're asked to keep the ball far from the ground.
Freestyle Showdown: You're granted 15 seconds to show your best moves.
- You can unlock and obtain a lot of cool stuff to change your Cristiano Ronaldo character, like making him wearing different shorts, t-shirts, sunglasses, shoes or force him to use a new hairstyle.
- Shuffle Mode: An option to randomly pick a different level in the game.
- Play soccer in "samba-style": A very nice feature that allows the user to play with Cristiano Ronaldo, while he dances to a Brazilian beat.
- 25 challenges in 6 unique world locations: Play against other opponents, who have their own characters and from several different countries, such as England, France, USA, Japan, Spain and Portugal.
Real Madrid next scheduled match is against Ajax, for the "UEFA Champions League", on the 7th of December, 2011. There's a good chance that Cristiano Ronaldo could be spared from this match, if Mourinho decides to rotate the team.
