Ratings and Reviews
Fun addictive game
To get any pleasure out of this game you will need to get rid of the ads as this sometimes crashes the game. You can play this without getting any additional funds, but it will be very difficult. I purchased 1m funds after disappointing first season in the conference league. I was wasn’t get very far as other reviews will point out how difficult it getting the balance right with players fitness, skill and happiness, whilst managing your funds. You’ll find that you always get a few players who play nearly every match, even score or assist and they will still be unhappy or you don’t have enough money to renew their contract.
I’m in 8th season now in the premier league. I’ve not had to purchase anymore addition funds. I didn’t go mad and buy all the best players and max out on staff facilities. I built it up in time spending at least 250k in my second season which was enough to win the league. I now actually earn that in two games in the premier league. I still don’t have the best team. It’s a good champions league team doing quite well in the premier league.
So I just hope this shows that it is worth getting extra funds as it does increase your enjoyment of the game. You can get an extra shot in a game by watching an advert. I tend not to bother as it risks crashing the game, but fortunately everything is saved up until this does happen.
This game is pretty good I like the fact you can have sponsors and press talks and you can actually build your club from the ground up (stadium, fitness centre , club store , etc). The only thing I feel that slacks on this game is the ability to buy players from different leagues. I have started many different careers to get a feel of different leagues and I’m currently playing in the Portuguese league but there are not many gold players you can buy because the league lacks in these types of players which is a really big problem when you come up against teams such as Manchester City in the europa league. If you added the ability to buy players from different leagues I think it would make the game much more fun and would also give you the opportunity to build your squad and make it better and it would be more of a challenge because the game can buy players from other leagues. Also I think that you should be able to get more energy cans after each match automatically so you can still get energy cans and get skill cards because your players seem to moan about there development a lot and there is just not enough skill cards to make them happy and when you use skill cards there is then not enough energy cans to refill there energy which means you can’t play them in the next match. All in all this game is a really good game :)
Didn’t expect this from new star devs
I’ll sum up this review firstly in this line, if you aren’t prepared to pay in app purchases then don’t get this game, as you don’t stand a chance without them.
I’ve been playing new star games since they were out half a decade ago (soccer one), so when the devs released this I thought it would be awesome, they would simulate a manager game without compromise and quality. But boy I was wrong. Everything in this game is geared to get you to spend money, on a mobile game which is ridiculous. Note, that I do sometimes pay in app like 1.99 or 2.99 here and there, but the starting price for some “bux” which are the in game currency here, are 9.99! For me and those that understand the value of money, it’s CLEAR that this game is a scam, and the only way to enjoy and prosper is to invest your real life earnings for a mobile game you’re probably going to forget about in a couple of weeks.
And the funny thing is, even if you pay 9.99, you’re probably going to have to top that up again further down the line as some of the other reviews stated, initiating a vicious cycle of needing to pay to actually play the game. The reason I didn’t give it 1 star even though developer greed does entitle it for a 1 star review, is that the core game isn’t that bad, still some issues with passing and energy but the upgrade standpoint isn’t a bad system, it’s just the way your forced to buy in app purchases to upgrade them is ridiculous.
