Game Review – Real Football 2009


Developer: Gameloft
Category: Games
Price: £5.99

It’s hard enough for developers to get sports games right on the major consoles, let alone on portable platforms. Real Football 2009 aims to buck the trend and, surprisingly, it succeeds. The difficulty comes in getting full functionality for team sports into such a small space with adequate controls, and this is where Gameloft’s title scores. Using a simple onscreen D-pad (a four-way directional control) and two simple buttons, players can be controlled in a number of ways, and there’s a variety of shots and tricks available. Built-in game modes include Training, Cups and Exhibition Matches, with the former a must for those looking to find the net quickly. This is a top buy for sports fans.
