Real Soccer 2009 by Gameloft is an awesome game that uses all the iPhones great features. The game’s main menu has several different game modes that you can play in. The first is Exhibition Mode. This mode allows you to play just a single match rather than many at once. The next is Cup Mode.

The controls on Real Soccer are awesome. You can move your player by using the pad in the bottom left of the screen. If you tap the pad twice and then hold it, your player will sprint. You can perform fancy tricks by simply taping in different ways on an empty part of the screen while your player has the ball. When the ball goes out of bounds, you can tilt your device to aim where you want to throw and then shake your device to throw the ball in. To pass to an opponent, all you need to do is press the B button. The longer you hold B, the more powerful your kick will be. If you wish to shoot the ball, all you need to do is tap the A button. The longer you hold A, the more powerful your shot will be. When you are on Defense, you steal the ball by simply tapping the B button when you are close to the opponent who has the ball.
