Ok here is my review:
First of all, the game itself is pretty good but also can be fustrative at some points.
After buying active soccer, I had to reboot my iPhone, I am not too sure why, but I wasn't able to play it as the game was crashing just before the beginning of a match.
After rebooting my iPhone, everything worked fine.
The menu is one of the problem, too small and not really friendly, hard to find what we want and substituting a player could be easier.
After a few tries, I could manage to do what I wanted
Then the game itself:
Fast and easy to move your players around, but passing is something of a challenge, keeping the ball feels like kickoff, shooting also feels like kickoff, which means that it could be a bit easier.
This game is in between kick off and sensible soccer, it feels great but also a bit frustrating, goalkeepers are often too slow.
Also I would suggest you guys to add a "change player" option, because I often want to play another player on the pitch, but as it is automatic, I can't defend like I would like to.
So to my point of view, this game has a great great potential, but it definitely needs a good update (game play, menu and a player's name editor)
Would be also gorgeous to have a few more Asian team ((China, North Korea and Taiwan)
African team (Burkina faso, Nigeria, Cameroon and Morocco)
Well done, really good game with a great great potential

Just played with the easy control option on and wanted to say that the game feels actually better now, easier and smoother.
For me, it's a 4 stars game, needs an easier menu and name editor and easier team tactics menu (some players are playing LB instead of RB, hard to know who plays where.

Updated with some bug fixes.

What's New in Version 1.1

Bug fixing:

- Extended compatibility: now it supports iPad 1 and iPod Touch 4th generation (close running apps and reboot the system if necessary).
- Multiplayer online match bug fix

Where do you find the easier control option? Is that in the update?

Screen doesn't flip though is my only complaint. Please fix that.
Hmm icade ! Tempting ! Good idea as i dont think theres any footy games which support the icade.

But screen flip sounds bad, i hate that ! Feels weird playing the wrong way round on my ipod/iphone.

I think it has good potential as well, but it hasn't really hit me the way Super Soccer Champs did. The graphics are great, and the gameplay is getting there, but the menus really do need some work, they look a bit cheap at the moment imho. I found myself struggling with the controls quite a bit, so it'd be great if there's an "easier control" option as mentioned above?

Will the screen flip issue be sorted in an update ? I presume it doesnt auto-rotate from what i read above.

It currently supports Right Landscape and Portrait mode and even auto-rotate mode (detecting orientation during the match), you can choose these settings on options menu.
However we will add the 4way screen rotation on our to do list.

PS: i have noticed you love iCade as well! :-)

Funny game indeed, more I play, more I enjoy it. It really feels like sensible soccer. Thank you for the update! Great work!
