When it comes to quality, sports games haven’t been able to keep up with other types. You can find games with some polish these days, but most of the biggest and most in-depth games are free-to-play. That is a letdown. Even in 2017, the sports games genre still has a long way to go. Even though there aren’t that many sports games, there are some good ones.
We tried to add as many games that you only pay for once as we could. You can also use Google Play to look for yourself. There are some games with great graphics. But because the games are free, it’s hard to really enjoy them. Anyway, let’s look at the best Android sports games!
FIE Swordplay is one of the surprising sports that a lot of people like to play. This one has to do with fencing. You choose a weapon, tweak your equipment, and fight other players. Real fencing moves, good-looking graphics, easy controls, online PvP, a story mode, and support from the International Fencing Federation are all part of the game. So, it makes sense to put it on this list. Even though fencing isn’t the most popular sport, this is a great game.
The new game in the FIFA series is FIFA Soccer. It is also one of the most popular sports games. It has all of the players on more than 550 real teams. This includes both old and new stars. The graphics in the game are also some of the best we’ve seen in a mobile game. It is a game by EA. So, you should get ready for everything that is free-to-play. You shouldn’t expect a perfect game, but this one is above average. Plus, it gets updated every year with new rosters and sometimes even changes to how it works.
Grand Mountain Adventure
Grand Mountain Adventure is a skiing game that looks better than you might expect. Skiing is done in an open world with great graphics, simple controls, and lots of things to do. You have to avoid different obstacles and try not to lose. There are five mountains to climb and explore in the game, as well as different challenges and an online leaderboard for speed runs and perfect runs. It can also be played without an internet connection. It has its own Discord server and doesn’t have any “free-to-play” game mechanics. It’s a beautiful game with great skiing. Anyone who likes winter sports should check this one out. Also, if you have Google Play Pass, it’s free to play.
Madden NFL 22 Mobile Football
Madden NFL Football is the most played mobile football game. It has good graphics, easy gameplay, rosters that are always up to date, and more. The game also has tournaments every week. This is mostly a simulation game, which is too bad. You take charge of a team and add players to it. The players level up and get better in different ways. It’s yet another free-to-play EA Sports game. Unfortunately, EA just pays more attention to this space than other big developers. The free-to-play parts weigh a lot. But the game does get some new features and updates once a year.
MLB 9 Innings 22
MLB stopped making RBI Baseball games, so other companies now cover baseball games on mobile devices. Even though it’s just okay, MLB 9 Innings is about as good as it gets. The game has about 2,000 MLB players, all 30 MLB ballparks, and a lot of animations to show all of the different ways people throw and hit the ball. The game is like a gacha. You get baseball players to make a team, which you then use to play against other teams. You can move forward faster if you spend real money, but you can still move forward if you don’t.
NBA Jam is what happens when EA Sports finally makes a good game. This is a basketball game in an arcade. Two players go up against each other. The rules aren’t as strict, you can play with other people online or in person, you can use a hardware controller, and it even works with Android TV. It’s a copy of the 1990s arcade game. It’s still better than almost all sports games, though. It costs $4.99 up front, and there are no ads or extra purchases in the app. This is the best basketball game you can play on your phone, and it’s also one of the best sports games.
NBA Live Mobile
Actually, NBA Live Mobile is a pretty good basketball game. It’s both a simulation and a real sports game, which is a popular mix. Players make teams, and then they go up against each other in a game. This one is easy to play and has good graphics. You can make your own team in the game. It also lets you play on the court with that team. It’s mostly about online PvP. There are also a few good ways to play the game. It’s a free-to-play game that’s also pretty rough. That’s what you should expect from EA games. This game is more like the real thing than NBA Jam. But NBA Jam is a little better all around. NBA 2K18 is another option. It’s a basketball game from 2K Games that’s a bit more polished.
OK One of the newer sports games is golf. This is a tribute to the old arcade golf games. To shoot the ball, you pull it back and let go. It works from a simple point of view. There aren’t any clubs or other things to play with. It’s just a nice game of golf to play when you want to relax. It has a few courses, pretty good graphics, and some hidden things for you to find. The game reminds us of the old arcade golf games that used to be in restaurants and bars. It’s a game you only pay for once, and there are no extra ads or in-app purchases. If you have Google Play Pass, it’s also free.
Boxing Star is one of the best mobile boxing games you can play right now. It’s easy to learn, has lots of cool features, and has pretty good gameplay. Using virtual and touchscreen controls that are easy to understand, you can dodge and block your opponent’s punches while throwing straights, hooks, and uppercuts. When you stun an opponent, you can use a frenzied special attack on them.
When you win a Story Mode match, you’ll get some in-game money and new gear. You can change how your boxer looks and give him or her all the “swank” that comes with being a boxing star. You can pick what kind of car you drive, who you hang out with, and even where you live. Some of the best gear comes from PvP rewards, which are set up in a way that makes IAPs more appealing. For instance, if you win a package in a PvP match, you won’t be able to open it for 5 minutes. As your rank goes up, these timers start to get longer, which can be annoying if you’re not a patient person.
You can play Boxing Star for free, but you can also buy some items with real money. But the game gets a bonus point in this category because it has a feature that isn’t often seen: you can turn IAPs off. You can just turn them off in the game’s settings menu, which I think is a great way to improve the quality of life. Boxing Star keeps getting better and better because the development team is still making updates to it all the time.
