Real Soccer 2010 offers the most game types in the iTunes App Store, tons of flexibility in formations and substitutions, and plenty more, but doesn't stand out on the iPhone because of less-than-stellar gameplay and graphics. Though the fields and stadiums look pretty good graphically, the player animations are fairly simple and the overall look is not as realistic as other titles in this genre. The controls include an onscreen joypad and two buttons for passing and shooting. You also get a special dribble move by double-tapping on the screen, but it's always the same move and rarely very effective.
Real Soccer offers several ways to play the game with modes that include Season Club Master (in which you lead a team), Cup Tournaments, Penalty shootout mode, League play, and Enter the Legend (in which you play as a single player at all times). The action is pretty good across all game types, but the AI seems a little simplistic on both sides of the ball.
Overall, if you're looking for a good soccer game on the iPhone, this title offers all the options that are included in other titles in the iTunes App Store. The HD version even makes it ready for iPad, but it may not be worth the price. When pitted against the other top soccer titles in the iTunes App Store, we think Real Soccer 2010 is lacking in a few key areas that would make this good game a great game.
