Real Soccer 2012 is full of little details that soccer fans will enjoy much, as "did you know...?" sentences and quotes at loadings, five difficulty settings from junior to legend, intro movies and trivia questions to earn more coins exchangeable for fields, leagues and improvements for players' prowess. Players earn experience and give you coins for doing what they do best.
Casual gamers will appreciate tip by tip tutorial gaming that allows to learn from scratch, though it's a pity there isn't a tutorial to initiate those players who don't know the basics of soccer (this is a flaw that nearly every sport game shares). It doesn't matter how you look at it: graphics, sound and gameplay are great. It can be a little bit laggy when running on a not top notch device, but it's bearable.
If you check the pros below, you'll see that game's free, with no ads. In fact, there are ads: real companies are announced at the billboards, just like they'd be in a real soccer game. Nearly all licenses are official, except fields. If you run short of in-game currency, you can exchange real money for coins through an in-app purchase. Anyway, you can play for a long while and enjoy it much without needing to spend a cent on it unless you want to play more than three matches in a row: a stamina meter will induce you to spent in-game money on energy drinks.
We could be talking about weather conditions and every single feature that put this game on a level with any portable soccer simulator, even the most well known ones. It's true that some sides have been made easier or have been simplified than in a console game, but it's rather obvious that it's been done for mobile gameplay sake. Daily notifications on your status bar aren't the best deal either, but anyway here we have a great soccer game you won't need to pay for. Five out of five. Now, If I may, it's kickoff time.
