    You're first impression is: I hope I didn't just give up some cash for a cheap looking game like this. Given 10 more minutes, and you'll never want your money back.

Given 10 more minutes, and you'll never want your money back. New Star Soccer 5 is a great and addicting game, even for those who think the sport is lame. I've never played so intensely on something so basic and simple. The game is always challenging as you progress, and packs in a lot of things to do. As far as the game dynamic, I would rate it a 10/10. The only things keeping the overall review from this score are the rare, small bugs during matches, and the annoyance of getting a low performance rating when the chances are rigged. Maybe that's part of the challenge to overcome, but it can be angering for just an app game. Expand

    Unlike other cash grabbing mobile games out there this game is genuinely good, it wants to accomplish something other than your money. The gameplay is extremely simple, when the ball gets to you, pass it to the other player in your team, if you see the net in your screen, try to goal or assist, and pray for the best. But the game is more than that. You also have to train to get stronger,Unlike other cash grabbing mobile games out there this game is genuinely good, it wants to accomplish something other than your money. The gameplay is extremely simple, when the ball gets to you, pass it to the other player in your team, if you see the net in your screen, try to goal or assist, and pray for the best. But the game is more than that. You also have to train to get stronger, keep your relationships with your boss, team and fans high, oh and you also have get a girlfriend and some sponsors.

    The AI can be a little stupid sometimes but they can also score at the moment you never expected.

    And you don't have to entirely depend on in app purchases to be successful, if you genuinely play good then you will get rich in the end anyways.

    Surely the best game ever.
    Addiction is high, fun is extreme. Having a chance of making choices is perfectly adapted in game.
    Unlike its opponents, the game is very hard what makes it more charming.

    New Star Soccer in equally horrible on the eyes and incredibly addictive to play. If you have any kind of interest in soccer you really just have to download it.

    Once you complete a few matches you'll be snared. [Sept 2012, p.111]

    It's fantastic to see such a simple yet gripping idea be implemented quite so well. Just expect your iOS device battery to run low regularly. Not through inefficient coding but through the way that New Star Soccer makes two hours feel like five minutes. It's pure, unadulterated joy.
