CRITICS SAY

“Soccer Superstars is an excellent pick. You still have real soccer play, but between the RPG elements and the super-players, there’s enough ‘videogame stuff’ to deliver fun escapism.”
IGN

“Football title with the emphasis very much on the cartoony and extravagant, with explosions leaping from boots and cutaways of your players in the style of an anime battle sequence.”
PocketGamer

“You will lose entire afternoons to playing series of games to improve your customized teams and players.”
Touch Arcade

“The game will be a addictive game that should turn out to be a must buy.”
Appmodo

I think the game has a great team selection menu but as soon as it gets past that it kind of strays past the idea of a “soccer game” with the concept of a super player. (wtf is a Blue Comer? “A man made steel robot”).

I think the game has great controls, mostly because it is retro style. Other games like EA’s FIFA game or Gameloft’s Real Soccer 2010 has better graphics but the controls are harder to use and master.

One random tidbit: I don’t like how small the ball is. You can hardly see it.
Another one: Why does the game play for you if you don’t do anything?

Time to sum it up!

Graphics: 4/5 – Retro!
UI: 4/5 – GBA style.
Gameplay: 5/5 – Great!
Creativity: 0/5 – It’s been done before.
Sound: 4/5 – Retro!
Controls: 4/5 – D-pad, A, B and S.
Difficulty: 5/5 – I suck at soccer.
Longevity: 4/5 – Meh.
Entertainment: 4/5 – Really fun!
Value: 5/5 – On sale for $2.99!

Total: 39/50 or 78% – Buy it now.
