Learn how to program.....
....or dont bother asking for repeat customers. All I see are updates that feature new games, new articles of clothing. But if you took the time to read reviews you would see that almost 100% of the problems experienced are for the connection drop issues especially at the higher levels. Call it cheaters hacking or glitches, whatever, this issue has been around since day one and is totally ignored. That tells me your priority is sucking more money out of unsuspecting fools like myself rather than providing a quality game. You guys are either the worst marketing strategists or the crappiest app designers out there. You would have easily double the fan base if you would simply address the issue everyone complains about. Instead we get a new badge for our garments while you ignore the folks who have been paying money in favor of attracting new membership with shiny objects. Once they figure your scam out, they will leave but who cares, right? You’ve already fleeced what your marketing strategist reports to be people who will no longer cough up money just to lose it on a fake connectivity issue. At least make it look like you are interested in stopping the cheating and crappy programming flaws instead of leveraging the biggest complaint for more real money. Hahaha, jokes on us, eh? One of these days apple will clamp down on the licensed stealing folks like you are getting away with now. Meanwhile, steal away, right?
Fun but expensive
I like this game a lot, but like most other games that are actually fun to play, the price for upgrades and new items are ridiculous and outrageous! It’s hard to explain but if you have played the game yourself, then you know what I’m talking about. You don’t get to pick outfits or cleats, etc.. you earn them in bags awarded or if you somehow have enough coins, or cash, you can buy higher value bags. Either way it’s no telling what you get. To boost up your players or the soccer balls you use, gets more expensive each time you have upgraded the player or soccer balls. The game itself is pretty cool and fun! But it becomes boring and annoying after a while because of the value of your real money, time, and effort to upgrade when in reality you don’t get full control on what you want to upgrade. The game play is cool. It’s hard to block some shots because of the view point of the goalie to the other player kicking. There really is no skill level needed to play this game, just get lucky haha it’s 50/50 really. You win some and you lose some. You’re playing against real ppl so it depends on you to succeed. Playing against a computer is easy, eventually you gain strategy but not against real players!
Not really playing live
By Bristal Grimstein
So this game gives you the illusion that you are playing other people live but you are not. The app takes our info and profiles and uses it to generate “live” games, except they are not live, you are not playing against other players you are playing against the computer using other players profile images. Certain things give it away such as when the app uses algorithms to decide when you should play against against a difficult “opponent”. When this happens your goalie will not work properly and will fall down and do something you didn’t “tell” it to do when swiping, and sometimes if you manage to get your goalie in the right position to block the ball the ball appears to go through your goalie. They also do other tricks such as use dialogue boxes to make it appear your opponent is interacting with you. There are many other little tricks they use to make you feel like you are competing against other people, but having said all that, outside of the games the app decides its time for you to lose, it is still a fun game to play.
Good but not perfect
I want to start by saying that this game is really fun. However, there are many flaws that cannot be ignored. I play the free kick mode constantly, and am always losing coins. This is incredibly frustrating as you need coins to get better! Also, you can’t do anything other than the practice mode if you don’t have coins. This problem is an easy fix- add a mode that costs nothing and gives 50 coins to the winner. To make it so people don’t take advantage, you could only allow players to use this mode when they can’t afford to do anything else. This is a much better alternative to waiting for 2 hours for 280 coins. I also think it should be made easier to earn the dollar things. They give so much of an advantage, but only players who pay a lot can afford them. It should not be this hard to get a good soccer ball. I also believe upgrades to stats should cost less. Coins are hard to get a lot of, and upgrades are incredibly important, which makes the game nearly impossible for new players.
If you enjoy not being in control...
This game could be so much better. First, it matches you against people that 20+ levels above you with super shots and super balls. Oh, you can pay to buy the bags that possibly contain cards that may one day be enough to get you the balls and skills you need to win, but don’t hold your breath. Then, there’s the game play. You’ll quickly realize that no matter how quickly you swipe the screen or where you tell your keeper to jump, the game has a mind of its own. Sometimes your keeper is superhero quick and your shots are genuine lightning strikes and other times your guys are hung over and/or outright drunk. You can swipe your finger till it bleeds, but your guy is going to give you the middle finger and do whatever he wants... And don’t get me started on the wind challenge. Wind blows a certain direction and you have to fight the wind to hit your target. We aren’t talking a gentle summer breeze. I’m talking category 5 hurricane! Inside a stadium!! Anyway, if you are willing to overlook the fact that you aren’t actually in control, you’ll enjoy this one.... lol
Fun but there needs to be a change
Dont get me wrong this game is really fun i enjoy playing it but the game its self is really missing some things that should be switched. One of them being how long it takes to open a bag like its rediculos its almost to the point where you only get to open one a day unless you use your in game money to open it which id rather save than use to open a bag where im just gonna have to keep wasting money on. Also in my opinion the water bottle idea in the carrer mode just ruins the feel of the game. Its just more time to wait for games to be played and that is getting annoying because i would like to play carrer mode but have to wait for water bottles and i feel like this concept was a good idea but should be removed in the future i feel like it would increase the quality time spent on the app. Thats all i have to say thanks again for making such a fun game and i hope you read this and mabye take some of what i had to say in consideration :)
Great game, one problem
This game is very fun and very well balanced except for one thing. I believe that the goalie stretch animation where he touches his hands to both shoulders should be removed. It is a long animation and it completely obstructs the view of the ball so if someone shoots while you’re goalie is doing this animation you cannot see the ball, which is almost impossible to save at that point. If this is animation is removed from the game it will be perfect!
There are some cheaters who need to be dealt with in the game too, they are very easy to find in the leaderboards because they will have ridiculous win rate and shooting race scores. Some even advertise what hacking source they are using in their profile pictures. These people ruin the game and it’s hard to get rid of all of them but some of them are very easy to see, like Macimbatumba, Wahid, Pedro, just to name a few from just the very first names you can see.
Good game, has some flaws
By THE.REAL Easy Eight
I have had this game since last year and I play it all the time. It is pretty fun and it doesn’t get very boring after a while. But there are a few little flaws with the game. The biggest thing that made me not want to play this for a few weeks is that I had saved up my Cash for a long time and I had over 350 Cash. When I decided to spend about 300 of it on a VIP ball, it said something like “this item is sold out” and it took my money away from me. It’s not that big of a deal, but I have had a lot of this developer’s games for long time and I have not experienced anything like this. Please either find out a way to refund me the money or give me the item that I spent my money on. That’s over three hundred Cash that you stole from me that I am not going to get back any time soon if you do not refund me my money. Please find out a way to fix this or I will delete the game. Thank you for reading this review.
Expensive & requires Facebook login for playing across devices
I like this game a lot and it's fun to play as you can play quick games against other real people. The lack of Game Center integration means you must connect to Facebook to play across iPad and iPhone. I hope the developers will add Game Center support soon as Facebook shouldn't be required for cross-device play. Like other reviews, this game gets expensive fast. They're should be other ways to acquire the in-game currency to open bags. I love challenging people to rematches! Unfortunately when you win, the time it takes to show you the bag you've earned from the last game and it gets out of the way, it's often too late to get a response from you opponent as they think you've left. This would be a simple fix for the developers to make. Don't have the bag get I'm the way of requesting a rematch or speed the bag appearing up. If these changes are made, I could be playing this for years.
Only needs little things
The game is overall really fun. The mechanics work great, there’s a decent amount of strategy, and I like the animation. However there are just some minor things I’d change. 1. Signing in: players should be allowed to make an account with twitter or email, rather than just Twitter. I don’t have a Facebook so I’m stuck with guest (insert many numbers). 2 Power: It would in my opinion the free kick taker should have an energy bar so people don’t abuse the speed of their shots every time. 3. a matchup range: I’m currently a level 16, and have progressed through the career quickly. Recently I’ve hit a road block, because I keep getting matched up against levels 30+, and therefore getting destroyed. There should be a limit of like 5 levels difference either way for matchups. These improvements I think would help the game should they be added.
