Pretty good

For me this is a very good game for the phone but it could be better some of the players with all the contracts are annoying and if you mess up it costs way to much money
Scam
by aycarambachichi on 2019/11/10 02:00
This is an absolute scam, you are absolutely unable to improve or win at all past a certain point unless you want to pay hella cash.
Great game, would love an update...
by TheJoker17 on 2019/10/31 04:47
I think this is a great game but would love to see more updates on the game. Like instead of paying the players through matches they are paid through yearly contracts. Also allowing customs on the players like changing names and numbers would be great. I love the different leagues with the abilities to change leagues and challenge yourself but I would definitely recommend a change to the formats to make it look a little cleaner. Presentation is just as important as gameplay. I absolutely love this game and hope you give some ideas a bit of consideration
This is great game for football fans
by MR-SImpson on 2019/10/30 14:26
this is great game for who likes strategy and football. i realy liked this game
Used to be a great game. Flooded with ads
by RedPhantom123 on 2019/10/25 23:04
The game was amazing before hand. It’s a lot of fun changing up players and moving up groups etc. The game used to give options to watch ads for coins you can use. Now, they play 25-45 sec ads after each game(and some games are basically bag length) with nothing in return. I guess they have to milk money somehow since people prob stopped playing. 5 stars -> 3
Amazing but...
by Toast1744 on 2019/09/25 21:16
Can you please let us play without making us pay to edit our uniform or logo or name? It’s annoying ok. Also you should learn a bit from Dream League Soccer
Good but...
by Bill slamadamadingdong on 2019/09/17 01:30
I love the game but I wish it would stop asking me to access my data for a more personal ad experience. No means no. Stop asking!!!!!!

Good but needs improvement
by Jeffover9000 on 2019/08/23 16:06
It’s a good game with some physics bugs in the game but the manager rating drops easily and is quite difficult to bring back up. The players also tend to get mad easily.
Good game but
by tcyplayzz on 2019/08/20 08:53
It’s a really good game but I don’t like that for the editing you have to pay, because in every other game it’s for free so I don’t get the purpose of having to pay so you can have your own club.
Good

I like this
Great game but
by Taken24 on 2019/08/02 04:08
This is a very good game I like it. Was playing new star soccer and came across this game. The only problem I have with is that there is no way for you to earn or get energy drinks for your team. There should be one drink that replenishes the entire squad because one by one is very difficult to do.
Bad
by heisbshehsbjs on 2019/07/31 03:17
Not a good game, the controls are terrible and the gameplay is boring
Has Potential
by KJ1098 on 2019/07/10 22:05
Hopefully, I will be able to update to a higher star review in the future. The base game is good, but needs some work. Unless you are winning the league, the board, fans, media, etc are all going to be upset. Not realistic, especially if you were just promoted. Once you are able to get silver + level players, they get upset because it’s difficult to get silver level trainers, so you cannot train them. There is also an issue with the keeper getting a red card. You have to play with a keeper and it doesn’t let you sub them out. You lose major points during interviews that test your knowledge on random facts about your play through. Interesting concept, but probably should only have positive effects, otherwise it makes the game annoying to play. Once they fix the balance of the game, I will probably come back to playing it.
Fun game
by Mitchell mitch on 2019/07/04 17:32
This game is really fun and I play it too much, but they really need to fix the half time team talk so it stops where your at rather than taking everything away and pissing you off....
Love this game!
by IanBigBoyyy on 2019/06/24 19:43
This game is easily the best soccer game on the App Store. I do wish there were more stats — you can only see player stats for the current season and you can’t see transfer history (which would be helpful in deciding if you should sell a player or not — am I making a profit?). I get that takes up more storage, but I’d be OK with it. Being able to manage a national team would be sick. The game isn’t as easy as New Star Soccer, but the gameplay doesn’t take long to master. If you let go and it goes to the shooting screen, taking away the cancel button would make it more challenging. Overall, though, I LOVE this game. Main thing was I wish there was more stats and transfer history bc those are so important for a manager. Thanks sm!

Gameplay
by EgeBenji on 2019/06/09 13:38
Can you please make it so you can simulate games, because playing every game becomes a bit tedious
Great game, but it desperately needs these 3 fixes
by bpladdict020 on 2019/05/31 17:16
In a nutshell, the game is incredible but it becomes unplayable after you lose a game. Your team gets really unhappy all of the sudden, which makes you lose again, which makes them more unhappy, etc. I also think there should be a lofted ball/cross mechanism and a player profile tab that shows you who dislikes who because the game makes it unclear. After you get through the long-winded explanation of the game, it’s really fun to play. But I got increasingly irritated with some of the gameplay issues and I ended up deleting the app. First of all, I was baffled by the fact that you can’t do a lofted pass. That means you can’t cross and playing through balls behind the defense is nearly impossible. I don’t know how they could leave that out, especially since they know the sport well. I keep on having issues with my opponents deliberately fouling me as a last resort in front of goal. That should be a straight red but the ref only gives me a free kick with no discipline for the other team. 9 formations is too few if you ask me. I wonder if a couple more could be added, especially ones heavy on offense. It would’ve helped me because my youth academy kept giving me forwards. The game is very harsh on you if you have a player out of position or two players with bad chemistry next to each other. Just having one hiccup in your lineup gives your opponents at least 4 extra chances on goal. I think it would be more reasonable if their overall was lowered for the match and possibly one extra chance but no more. Also, the game stopped telling me who disliked who after a while so maybe a special tab should be made just for that. I ended up deleting the game because all my players suddenly became unhappy with their form after they lost one game and tied another. Because of that they passed inaccurately, refused to defend and gave the opposition loads of chances to score. That lead to us losing, which led to them becoming more unhappy and I suddenly found myself stuck in a paradox. No matter how I played my cards I couldn’t get out of our downward spiral, so I gave up. Maybe reduce how unhappy they get per loss? It makes no sense for a team 6 points clear at the top of the table to panic after one bad match. This is the main issue of the game in my eyes. If you just reduced the amount of unhappiness per loss, added a crossing/lofted ball mechanism and some way of knowing which players dislike each other, I would immediately download the game again and resume playing. It was so much fun and I really want to see it improved.
Amazing game with minor problems
by Evan Rodenberger . on 2019/05/22 15:49
The gameplay of this game is fantastic. The variety of leagues and formations gives you the ability to try any managerial scenario you’d ever want. (besides national teams) However, the game does lag out my phone at least once every 20 minutes I play it. If the phone mechanics where a little better it’d be a perfect game.
Needs some tweaks
by itsyaboymattyt on 2019/05/15 15:24
This game has such a solid foundation but there are some things that can make it very frustrating. First of all the sort of downward spiral you can get stuck in is nearly comical. Let's say you lose 2 or 3 games in a row, now your players are concerned about team form which makes them unhappy, which causes them to make mistakes which makes you lose more, causing then to get more upset. You end up getting stuck as they keep making mistakes and it becomes very difficult to string a couple wins together, as only 1 win has a minimal effect. Maybe to combat this there could be some type of boost to happiness for breaking a losing streak? As the players would be happy for finally getting a win. Another thing that ties into this is player happiness. Maybe some players should be less effected and some be more (and not just from traits) Again tying with the happiness, I'd like to see a system where you can designate a players role. There's only 11 positions, not everyone can be a starter. But if you could search/sign people who are ok with being rotational players or subs it would also help with the happiness problem.
The pay to play thing is brutal.
by RayInOakland on 2019/04/29 18:34
I love the mechanics of the game, but the player packs, replay purchases, etc. are really off putting. Whenever I hit a rough patch in the game (after promotion), I find myself wondering if this is something I can play through or an artificial headache created to bilk $1.99 out of me.
Pretty good
by Aaassdddff on 2019/04/26 05:28
Wish there are 2 things: 1. More in-depth tactics & strategy for your team and 2. Full 90 min length 3D match Apart from that it’s pretty good ok
Fun gameplay, but everything costs money
by Branflakes1522 on 2019/04/21 01:53
Want new players? Pay money. Want to change your jerseys? Pay money. Want to change your team name? Pay money. Want to change your logo? Pay money. I think you know where I’m going with this.
Good game but nearly unplayable
by Da beast incarnate on 2019/04/21 00:17
It’s nearly impossible to get energy and that makes your players injured so you can’t improve your squad. Everything is too expensive. The skill gap between divisions is too large. This is basically why the game isn’t as good as it can be in a nutshell. The game is free but you really need to spend some money if you want the game to not be crazily hard. I get that it’s freemium but you should still be able to play without having to pay. Players should gain energy at halftime and after matches and make it so you can buy packs with the in game currency. Then I will leave a more positive review (if you improve the game)
Good
by tedchick on 2019/04/15 06:34
If you get a red card you can’t sub in a player only problem
Freezes
by Gall114 on 2019/04/10 23:17
This game is amazing.Its fun and addicting, I would spend hours playing this game.However as good as it might be, the game often freezes, the game freezes if I click the screen and I’ll have to delete the tab to play again.
$$$
by Ustas 1971 on 2019/03/25 07:55
2-4 hours and all your team will be tired and loss 100% bs all your opponents have 90% energy despite any number of games before game with u. Other words - impossible to play without donation.
Add Free Daily Pack
by Reppin taylor on 2019/03/19 18:26
Love the game, but it would be awesome to see a free once a day pack that could give you a random training, staff card, team talk, etc to improve the experience.
Your next new addiction
by Texpsych on 2019/03/16 20:53
This game is hands-down the finest, most fun, and most innovative sports game ever to come to the iPhone. It has it all. Strategy, RPG elements, tough decisions that can seriously impact your club...there’s just so much to unwrap when you download this game. It scales very deep, and frankly I’m addicted. Careful if you’re impatient like I am, you’ll end up spending lots of real world money. It’s not “pay to play” per se. You don’t “have” to spend money. But, it’s worth every dime to me just from the sheer quality and innovative game play.
Pretty good but needs work
by Bob jiggly Bob Bob on 2019/03/14 02:49
I think the developers need to realize this is a soccer game not rugby, why is it when the opposition get the ball they automatically kick it off field? When you are in the oppositions half of the field the game should still be playable not automatically ending play and making you use a restart. Allow the purchase of cards to be used by in game money! Also it seems that some of the games are literally scripted, it doesn’t matter how many goals you score or how many times you replay the game, you will not win that game as in the last dying seconds of the game even if you are 7-0 up, all of a sudden the opposition comes back at a ridiculous rate and you lose anyway, like you never had a chance, Needs plenty of improvement
Great game, a few things to improve upon
by Spechtsa on 2019/03/13 16:07
I love this game, up to Season 10 on my current manager, but a few things I have quibbles with: 1) I should be able to choose my penalty/free kick takers. Because the game still uses your formation for set pieces if my CF is my free kick taker it’s very difficult to get #s into the box. 2) The board. Oh, the board. No, I don’t want to sell my best player and top goal scorer even if you think it was a good offer. 3) There should be some advantage for moving leagues, if I’ve built up a dominant side, won the league, international cups, etc...why do I have to start all the way at the bottom again?
Editing
by juanfranciscorl on 2019/02/19 05:13
I put a lot of money in this game and they don’t let me edit the uniforms
Great game but too easy
by Django_Z on 2019/02/11 00:57
I never bought any packs but I was promoted every season and won the premier league the first year I was in it. I think the game needs a little tuning. I'm good, but not that good. Made the journey a bit less enjoyable. Still love everything else about it.
Freezing
by #*%#! on 2019/02/03 22:21
There’s always ads after matches, but lately my screen freezes on the screen that comes up and I tried closing out of the app but it doesn’t do anything. It’s just frozen.

by Cjjonesz on 2018/11/12 16:31
As other reviewers have mentioned, energy recovery for players is a huge problem. Players are exhausted after just a couple games and never can recover. Only way to boost energy at the rate that makes it even playable is buy in game extras.
На удивление хорошая игра
by DISCOINFERNOpb on 2018/11/09 23:56
Игра затягивет, относительно продумана. Есть некоторые минусы, как например привязанность к карточкам, отсутствие молодежного состава. Из за второго приходится постоянно подстраиваться. Надеюсь, что игра продолжит развиваться.
Amazing to play
by MrBnCnTn on 2018/11/07 08:09
Having played NSS for the longest time it takes some getting used to when it comes to the mechanics of this game in particular with the dribbling, shooting, passing and all those good stuff. But nonetheless the game is a masterpiece and easy to navigate that makes it unique in its own way. One thing I wish the developers can change is the In-App Purchases. The reason is who would really pay $4.99 just for a name change or a kit change, like really???
It’s good
by okbigboiglukinho on 2018/11/05 14:34
One thing I think should happen though is that you should be less concerned about having to develop players. Or you have to be less concerned about having energy. I think they should regenerate more energy after each game.
Magisterial soccer game

Needs energy boost
by Elton join the first on 2018/10/29 00:59

Sneaky Pay Walls

So i pay real money to get gold or legendary players only to have them disappear when i don’t have the millions of coins to renew their contracts?! And the only way to really get contract extension cards is to...buy it from packs in the store? Wow. Greed kills another otherwise great game. Are you part of EA?

by coachchrisrob on 2018/10/23 17:31
Played for a awhile and began to realize that you really have to buy cards in order to keep your team happy. I got through about half a season and most of my team was losing happiness because I couldn’t train them or because I couldn’t play them enough. Seems like there should be more ways to earn cards other then the ones provided.
More money

No thanks

by Chech Malin on 2018/10/16 03:20
Great game
Has potential
by The Acadian Kid on 2018/10/10 01:43
This would be a great game but there needs to be a few things worked out first. Firstly, when you’re chasing the ball you have to use your finger on the player you want to use but this often means covering up the portion of the screen that you want to move in to essentially making you blind to whatever is happening in that portion of the field. Secondly, sometimes this game feels very scripted, like it knows you have an objective to accomplish so the difficultly gets turned way up to make it near impossible. Third, the energy levels on players need to be reworked so that players regain at least some energy between games. Without this you’re constantly needing to focus on energy cans and, because of that, you can barely focus on player development. If they can fix these problems this could be a great game.

Pros and cons
by Fytyufrftutrfcyftcfyttycf on 2018/10/01 05:05
It’s really fun and addicting it just gets annoying because the players are constantly out of energy and it’s almost impossible to have a fully energized team. And that would be fine if it weren’t for the fact then when their not energized they are constantly hurt. And since they are de-energized then you have to use your card bonus on energy instead of skill boosts. Then without the boosts the players are left unhappy. And i find it dumb that the only packs you can get are ones you have to pay real money for. They’re should be some you could buy with in game currency even if it’s just low leveled players at least i could then get more people on the bunch to use when energy is low.
Fantastic game
by Wedgie lover on 2018/09/29 12:04
This game is fantastic. One thing I would improve is to give a bit more selection over which position your youth academy players play. I have a player retire, and it would be very helpful to fill that position again, but I have no control over what position I call up. If you wanted to make it more complex, you could show a star rating of the players you have at each position in the academy so you could choose, knowing that you may not be choosing the best rookie because of a positional need.
$5 for team editing?!!!!
by Mackattackgold on 2018/09/28 23:33

$5 for basic customization
by 4cowboys21 on 2018/09/27 21:09
Been waiting for this update for months, $4.99 for some very basic customization tools is pretty ridiculous though.
A shame
by Nick.R.P =] on 2018/09/27 18:53
The game itself is fun and almost completely exempt of glitches. However, the greed that the creators have spoils the game a little as we were promised customization for months and now we have to pay extra REAL money to customize. Come on creators, is it really worth $5 to see my team wear a different color?
A BIG BUST
by Tgod960 on 2018/09/27 01:09
$4.99 to just change a name and some colors on a jersey!!? Ridiculous.... have been waiting for this update to come out thinking it was gonna be free. Maybe $1.99, but 5 BUCKS! Time for a new game ✌🏼
5 for customization
by ejcool27 on 2018/09/26 04:26
Man I want to give this a good rating. I like the game play.its enjoyable to play. I understand the 5 bucks to remove ads that’s fine, but 5 for the ability to customize your team is unreal. It honestly leaves a sour taste in my mouth, and is probably going to cause me to delete the game.
4.99??????
by Vinnyguy10 on 2018/09/26 04:10
this is horrible. how come a soccer game can be so good and bad at the same time. OH I know, just charge them 4.99 which time they to change their club name of kits. UNBELIEVABLE
Paying for Customization!
by Whaleboyyy on 2018/09/25 14:58
(Only giving it 5 stars so it can be seen I would give it 1 star)Are you kidding me? The new update allows you to change your logo, kits, and stadium and team name, that’s cool but then you go and try and edit it and it costs $5!! What a joke I’m not wasting my money just to be able to change my team name and what not, good job new star you turned your game into a pay to win. Terrible company I am never playing new star manager again, GARBAGE!
Good game but.....
by jy8909 on 2018/09/25 14:46
There’s no reason someone should have to pay for the editor. $4.99 just to edit the kits, there are plenty of other games on here which allow you to edit the kit and pay with the in game currency or for absolutely free, if you want to play this game for fun with a generic team by all means go ahead. But if you want to make your own unique team, be prepared to pay the $4.99 just to edit virtual kits.
Great game, just make the editing free-ish
by TubaDiego on 2018/09/25 12:09
I love the gameplay of this, but the fact that the editing isn’t free bothers me. You should make some options free (team name, some colors, etc) but pay for others (stadium name, uniforms, etc)
Segunda temporada
by psjdbjansj on 2018/09/23 15:25
Si ascendes de division se hace imposible ganar, los otros equipos promedian 55 mientras el tuyo promedia 33, entras a un partido y te dan 3 situaciones de gol pero te hacen 7 goles es totalmente imposible, esta hecho para q a medida q avanzes en el juego compres sobres con plata de verdad muy reprobable no tiene sentido tratar de ascender ya q es imposible ganar un partido despues ojala corrijan las situaciones q tenes por partido y principalmente bajen la probabilidad q te hagan un gol, literal no te hacen menos de 6 goles y nada podes hacer.

DEVELOPERS PLEASE READ
by Keekoman on 2018/09/06 20:48
I love this game. I played New Star Soccer before and haven’t played it ever since this game came out since it’s so addicting. Everything was going great until a recent update starting glitching out the game. Sometime it’ll say one player failed to pass to another, which means they dislike each other. But not it says that one player failed to pass to themselves! It cause you to get scored on and makes no sense. Also sometimes when you make substitutions It won’t let you make the subs you want and keep people in it and only works if I put a person in the wrong position. The game got messed up from some update because this never came up when it first came out. The idea is good and the game is great, but I think the latest update messed some things up.
Big fan

Please make promotion available for all leagues
by Tampablake128 on 2018/08/24 16:08
Spent some money on lower league which I realized I couldn’t even be promoted to the upper league. KOR 3. Love the game though
Good but need fixes
by Voftab on 2018/08/19 16:47
The game is very promising but it’s very hard and sometimes forces you to give up ... it’s almost impossible to control player energy and happiness. Sometimes you can see other teams playing against your team and scoring two or three goals in a minute without letting you play. It’s almost unplayable after promoting your team to a higher level league! Change the balances please and fix those issues.
Great until you HAVE to spend
by Jbbears 1028 on 2018/08/18 17:26
This game was very, very enjoyable. But I reached a point fairly quickly that I found if I didn’t spend, I lost every game...I don’t mind spending on games, but I don’t play games where I feel like am am forced to spend to even play at all. So moving on from this one....
Game is choppy and greedy

This game stutters too much. And I feel as if I can’t win without paying. Also can’t seem to find a way to change my team name or select permanent colors
Becoming too tedious to progress without buying packs
by Dalekx2 on 2018/08/14 03:39
This is a great game at heart and could be a runner for game of the year. However, 4 seasons in and becoming a grind. Energy system is broke...too difficult to maintain even with team rotation...unless you buy packs. Also difficult to get cards to fix players management issues...unless you purchase packs through IAP. You can progress...but it becomes a slog. You can progress but requires too much work.
Fun but needs some tweaks
by Calipunk69 on 2018/08/10 21:56
Wish you can keep the upgrades and purchases when you change leagues. Also editing would be nice as well
Great Game!
by GameBoy11776600 on 2018/08/06 19:24
It’s a fun game and very well thought out, but it’s very laggy and hard to play. I’ll improve review when it is fixed! Great!! You fixed it! A little slow still, but better. You’ve really earned these five stars. Great game!
Great Game
by terryrozier on 2018/08/06 06:05
At first I thought it was pay to win, but the only thing you can buy is cards. You don’t need cards to win. Good mechanics and gameplay. I rate it!
NSS fan for awhile
by Bogilicious2 on 2018/08/05 20:52
I have played New Star titles since it was a flash game on Kongregate. This game is a fresh take on the game and runs fairly smooth. I don’t think it’s sporadic choppiness is enough to not give it 5 stars but it could be my phone. Really fun game and really good job New Star. Also the changeable camera angle is awesome.
Player ratings and glitches
by RowanWithADabOfRanch on 2018/08/05 14:32
Quality game and the best football game for a phone however the player rating are a bit broken... I dont know how the best team in Denmark’s best player would only be a 56 with 75 potential. Also I think as a manager you should be able to change teams, it gets boring after you’re in the same league for a few season and your team hasn’t gotten much better. There is also one glitch that happens where you make a substitution and the game freezes and it only seems to happen to me when I’m winning. Thank you
Like the update but...
by Avila29 on 2018/08/05 13:10
Definitely when changing clubs. I think less should be taken away. I know. Jumping from first division and being champion, doesn’t make sense to go to a different club and start at second division. Also when switching clubs. That club you switching to should have some sort of upgrades on facilities and also a signing bonus. When from millions of bux to like 50,000 bux... no point in my belief to change clubs and go to a complete downgrade. You should be advancing and accomplishing more and earning different cups. Also you should be able to buy players from different nationalities and not just from the country you’re playing in. That way you can refer to players from your old club and sign your best onto your new crew! Great game. I play everyday but some major updates should be done
Crashes after latest update
by mukica on 2018/08/04 07:58
After last update, 3 days ago it keeps crashing. Please fix this asap...
Great game but here's a suggestion
by Defe Steel on 2018/08/03 18:42
Why don't yall let layers improve when they play games? Player ability should increase the more they play and coach cards should just be a bonus
One little issue for me at the least
by printed30 on 2018/08/03 17:56
So great game you should try it but in my second season i have almost gone undefeated in i wish you could make the difficult harder
Great game but keeps dying
by Matt901026 on 2018/08/03 03:18
After the update, seems like the game can’t work properly. Keeps dying every time I play it
Deceitful, another typical loot box game.
by Russian153 on 2018/08/02 17:57
They make the first season really easy and fun, and the best season after your promotion!, everything starts falling apart. It become borderline impossible to win any games, your players actually refuse to play on the field and will purposefully give opposition the ball. The solution? Pay with really money card packs that contain better players. But you have to buy lots of packs because the only good player wants other good players with him. This is the equivalent of EA games loot boxes. Awfully sad to see New Star Games go down this path of pay to win only games. Save your mental energy and get a different games.
Fun but glitchy at times
by AC9$Alex on 2018/08/02 06:06
5 Stars cause this is actually a manager game I really enjoy and can’t get enough of, I love that the players have personalities and are all different in different ways. However the only problem I have is that when I click on the card packs after I click shop it just freezes. And I have to close it out and just play
Fun game, however
by Averroe5 on 2018/08/02 03:55
Don't expect to retain top player without spending money on it
A True Addiction
by SnotHexe on 2018/07/31 17:27
Amazing game! Top 5 game I’ve ever played on iPhone/iPad. Build teams, pro/rel, game play, and all of the management issues. MY ONLY criticism is the difficulty level. I set my teams to 100% and have enough subs to rotate on a consistent basis. As a result, I burn through teams that should be destroying me. Need to nerf the energy buff
Needs improvement
by EndChildSlavery on 2018/07/31 07:16
Game crashes a lot during matches and have to reset the game. Also tried to start a match the other day and instead of going to the game screen, it immediately went to the end of match screen and gave me a loss. Need to fix the bugs, otherwise a fun game to play.
One of the best soccer games
by DeFaMe1 on 2018/07/30 00:56
Needs improvement but it’s already better than most of these soccer games
Pay To win Piece of garbage
by Malci 162728 on 2018/07/28 21:13
Constant pushing to buy things, and the inability to keep a team content and happy, there’s almost zero percent chance to succeed unless you buy a pack, new star soccer was simple and achievable to succeed without having to buy anything. Fix this dumpster fire before you lose fans of your money hungry franchise👎🏽
Solid and excited to see the future
by Exciting Ideas on 2018/07/21 07:15
This game is truly remarkable when it comes to its ability to combine fun and challenging gameplay with an in depth simulation of managing a football club. This alone makes this game an amazing experience for me the only things that could Improve this game are. 1. Having the ability to manage a national team. 2. More customization of club kits and crest etc. 3. Manager transfers or the ability to manage another team. Also an extra thing that could be interesting would be the the ability to select a location or city that your team plays in and have certain rival teams which can correspond (teams from the same city or area or maybe a team who tend to beat you ) these rival teams would serve as extra objectives and could be used to make playing in the lower leagues in the beginning of the game more interesting as playing a rival team could mean could mean losing or gaining a large amount of trust from the fans or board. This same affect could be used if I player was bought from or sold to a rival club.
IS THIS REAL?
by Evangelavius on 2018/07/11 20:48
How?! You guys went from an amazingly fun game with New Star Soccer, to an even more fun, slightly different 3D version(which is perfect, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. And if it’s just a little worn out then a little upgrade never hurt did it?!)!! And the best part is that this game you can play for hours on end and never once have to worry about paying or having to get off to get energy back or something!! This company truly is a modern marvel, and should be considered the ideal model for other companies to follow. What I love is that they seriously brought every issue that they had to the table with NSS and clearly, they said “what can we do right now to either fix this, or to make it more fun?” And they absolutely nailed it! Easily the best game I’ve ever played. So far no bugs, no glitches, just another excellent game created by this company. Can’t wait for more from them! Thank you so much!
Decent game overall
by Mikeyy365 on 2018/07/20 15:42
I like the concept of the game with the managing and all but there are some things that could be improved. For example, you start out in the bottom league. My team finished first but my players ratings were well below some other teams ratings so I lost a good amount of games. I was fine with that cause I thought I’d move up one league and still be able to compete. Nope. I moved up 4 leagues and now my team is nowhere near the level of other teams. I didn’t realize that this was gonna happen so now my team gets hammered every game and I have serious player issues. I think each league you win you move up one league not a ridiculous amount. There was no warning or anything about this so it’s kind of screwed up my entire progress. There are also game control problems. For instance, you can’t lob the ball for a cross or play it over defenders. Also, when you give a pass, you can’t determine power. So lots of times I’ll give a through ball that goes all the way to the keeper even though I put it a little ahead of a player. I know I wrote a lot of things but this game is fun and addicting but could be a lot better.
Needs some tweaks
by itsyaboymattyt on 2019/05/15 15:24
This game has such a solid foundation but there are some things that can make it very frustrating. First of all the sort of downward spiral you can get stuck in is nearly comical. Let's say you lose 2 or 3 games in a row, now your players are concerned about team form which makes them unhappy, which causes them to make mistakes which makes you lose more, causing then to get more upset. You end up getting stuck as they keep making mistakes and it becomes very difficult to string a couple wins together, as only 1 win has a minimal effect. Maybe to combat this there could be some type of boost to happiness for breaking a losing streak? As the players would be happy for finally getting a win. Another thing that ties into this is player happiness. Maybe some players should be less effected and some be more (and not just from traits) Again tying with the happiness, I'd like to see a system where you can designate a players role. There's only 11 positions, not everyone can be a starter. But if you could search/sign people who are ok with being rotational players or subs it would also help with the happiness problem.
I have always been a fan of new star but...
by GladiusPrimo on 2018/07/18 03:34
I love literally everything about this game, however three things should be improved. One of them is the free kicks, they are either great scoring opportunities or pointless play resets. What I mean by that is that you can either directly shoot it or you are forced to pass it to someone next to you, there are no real set piece plays in the game. And I think this is due to the next problem. Why can’t you lob the ball? Pls pls add that with the passes just lets select the player and give us an option to hit the ball in a certain way or just two passing options. At least when the player is in a certain position, give the high cross option pls. Finally, the tutorial is kind of sloppy and I don’t feel like it fully introduces the functions of the games. What I mean by that is that there is a lot of managerial goals set by your bosses that I don’t really know how to achieve because the tutorial doesn’t really cover those aspects. For everything else, this game is pure gold.
Really fun but needs work
by yobroitsjo on 2018/07/18 07:43
TL;DR: Good gameplay, players never have energy so you can’t train them, also you never make money and can’t buy things I love the gameplay, the way to pass and dribble and shoot is great. However, it’s so easy to win games. In my first full season I am currently 19-1-0, I should not be that good yet if ever. Plus, there are many out of match things that are lacking. Players should gain energy between games and at halftime. If you don’t rest team at least every other game you will have no one that can play. This also makes it impossible to train the players which always makes them upset they aren’t training. This also means my team is never getting better which is a problem. There just needs to be more energy automatically given. Plus, it is soooo hard to make money and I never buy anything because I’m always broke and stuff is expensive. It takes me a whole season to upgrade 1-2 facilities to level 2, buy maybe a player and that’s it. I love the gameplay and overall feel but a lot of managing aspects need rebalancing.
Like the update but...

Should be 5 stars but..
by john3736251 on 2018/07/15 03:01
The energy and team improvement systems are lacking badly. This game has a ton of potential however. Players should generate energy in between games. One game should not completely make a player useless and extremely vulnerable to injury. The ability to acquire better players is also lacking. There should be a way to get packs without paying real money. Possibly another form of ingame currency that can be earned by winning matches or completing task, or leveling up your manager. The fact that there is no other way to get a pack is very unfortunate. Players should also progress or regress naturally whether that is at a halfway point in the season or after each year goes by. I want to grind to improve but I feel as if the developers of this game are heavily focused on forcing players to purchase packs. I hope there comes better ways to improve. Really want to continue to enjoy this game seeing that I­t­ has a ton of potential.
Great game, would love an update...
by TheJoker17 on 2019/10/31 04:47
I think this is a great game but would love to see more updates on the game. Like instead of paying the players through matches they are paid through yearly contracts. Also allowing customs on the players like changing names and numbers would be great. I love the different leagues with the abilities to change leagues and challenge yourself but I would definitely recommend a change to the formats to make it look a little cleaner. Presentation is just as important as gameplay. I absolutely love this game and hope you give some ideas a bit of consideration
Should be 5 Stars but minor problem
by Phxferrari on 2018/07/23 17:12
I love this game and I have had a lot of fun with it for the past week or so but I just have one minor problem. The European leagues as qualification has a minor problem. I got knocked out in the playoff (the last round) round of the champions league qualifiers and I was expecting so Europa League Football but instead I had no Europe an games. I hope the can fix it where if you get knocked out in the 2nd round qualifying of champions league then you go to the 3rd round qualifying of Europa League instead of going cause that’s how it works in real life. You also can’t transfer list players which is kind another small, but important piece. Plus if your a really bad team and you face a really good team, I understand they will Score a lot but they also score every free kick which is pretty unrealistic. Otherwise it’s a great game and I enjoy it a lot.
Excellent game, could be improved
by Gangsta Timmy on 2018/07/16 05:06
First off I’d like to say that this game is ingenious and creative, and I’m surprised at how much fun it is. I’ve played new star soccer before but this is amazing. However, I have a few ideas that could improve the game. There should be events where you have to defend and clear the ball, where the opposing side has possession and you have to stop them. Also, there could be an event where you’re the goalkeeper and you have to save the ball or be punished with a goal. Some other things: passing back behind the half or passing to the goalie should not stop the play, possibly make a way to cancel passes, maybe find a way to be able to obtain more energy cards when selecting that option, and have player packs that you can buy with in-game currency. I feel that the game could be better with these, but it certainly is fun and unique 👍.
Soo close
by Dackzar on 2018/07/26 15:27
I love the gameplay, it’s really fun and addicting. Nothing beats the feeling of a well orchestrated plan coming together for a win. The biggest thing I wish was that you could select more than end of game reward. It would truly enhance the gameplay a remarkable amount. The opportunity cost of not selecting either the skills coach or fitness coach is ridiculous. And the only reason I can see for having the scout is so that you can complete board missions. The other thing that really pisses me off is that when you scout or bring up a rookie, while they are good players, they are never for a position I care about. It seems like they are the least useful position for your squad at that time. I got like 3 DRs in a row. I wish there was a way to select a position you want to train the rookies to.
DEVELOPERS PLEASE READ
by Keekoman on 2018/09/06 20:48
I love this game. I played New Star Soccer before and haven’t played it ever since this game came out since it’s so addicting. Everything was going great until a recent update starting glitching out the game. Sometime it’ll say one player failed to pass to another, which means they dislike each other. But not it says that one player failed to pass to themselves! It cause you to get scored on and makes no sense. Also sometimes when you make substitutions It won’t let you make the subs you want and keep people in it and only works if I put a person in the wrong position. The game got messed up from some update because this never came up when it first came out. The idea is good and the game is great, but I think the latest update messed some things up.
Has Potential
by KJ1098 on 2019/07/10 22:05
Hopefully, I will be able to update to a higher star review in the future. The base game is good, but needs some work. Unless you are winning the league, the board, fans, media, etc are all going to be upset. Not realistic, especially if you were just promoted. Once you are able to get silver + level players, they get upset because it’s difficult to get silver level trainers, so you cannot train them. There is also an issue with the keeper getting a red card. You have to play with a keeper and it doesn’t let you sub them out. You lose major points during interviews that test your knowledge on random facts about your play through. Interesting concept, but probably should only have positive effects, otherwise it makes the game annoying to play. Once they fix the balance of the game, I will probably come back to playing it.
Pros and cons
by Fytyufrftutrfcyftcfyttycf on 2018/10/01 05:05
It’s really fun and addicting it just gets annoying because the players are constantly out of energy and it’s almost impossible to have a fully energized team. And that would be fine if it weren’t for the fact then when their not energized they are constantly hurt. And since they are de-energized then you have to use your card bonus on energy instead of skill boosts. Then without the boosts the players are left unhappy. And i find it dumb that the only packs you can get are ones you have to pay real money for. They’re should be some you could buy with in game currency even if it’s just low leveled players at least i could then get more people on the bunch to use when energy is low.
Pretty good but needs work
by Bob jiggly Bob Bob on 2019/03/14 02:49
I think the developers need to realize this is a soccer game not rugby, why is it when the opposition get the ball they automatically kick it off field? When you are in the oppositions half of the field the game should still be playable not automatically ending play and making you use a restart. Allow the purchase of cards to be used by in game money! Also it seems that some of the games are literally scripted, it doesn’t matter how many goals you score or how many times you replay the game, you will not win that game as in the last dying seconds of the game even if you are 7-0 up, all of a sudden the opposition comes back at a ridiculous rate and you lose anyway, like you never had a chance, Needs plenty of improvement
Has potential
by The Acadian Kid on 2018/10/10 01:43
This would be a great game but there needs to be a few things worked out first. Firstly, when you’re chasing the ball you have to use your finger on the player you want to use but this often means covering up the portion of the screen that you want to move in to essentially making you blind to whatever is happening in that portion of the field. Secondly, sometimes this game feels very scripted, like it knows you have an objective to accomplish so the difficultly gets turned way up to make it near impossible. Third, the energy levels on players need to be reworked so that players regain at least some energy between games. Without this you’re constantly needing to focus on energy cans and, because of that, you can barely focus on player development. If they can fix these problems this could be a great game.
Wish you had the choice
by Nbaaaaaaa on 2018/07/22 07:41
I wish you had the choice to be your own player like be a pro... almost like your other game but more into this game. Invest and make millions of coins if your player gains up to speculation with his contract I wish the player and this game would allow you to make millions considering that it’s 5 dollars for 1million coins so yeah coins aren’t hard to get but in this game if you don’t use real money they are hard to get. and is amazing you know ? But it’s only an idea and I honestly hate the happiness problem in this game and the player energy problem it makes the game hard and its to much to handle and it’s hard to play a lot of games cuz we can’t buy anything with coins to make them not tired it’s a pain. Please take this into consideration.
Fantastic game
by Wedgie lover on 2018/09/29 12:04
This game is fantastic. One thing I would improve is to give a bit more selection over which position your youth academy players play. I have a player retire, and it would be very helpful to fill that position again, but I have no control over what position I call up. If you wanted to make it more complex, you could show a star rating of the players you have at each position in the academy so you could choose, knowing that you may not be choosing the best rookie because of a positional need.
Could be Improved
by Goobyboi4200 on 2018/07/21 12:44
Huge fan of the original NSS and now manager too. The games are fantastic. However in this particular installment there are some serious improvements that should be made. What I loved about NSS was that it was not a money grab like other games in the App Store, however manager feels more like one. You truly have to grind to make any kind of money to buy upgrades for facilities and better players, but you simply cannot grind because the players on your squad are completely gassed after 1-2 matches. The whole energy aspect of this new game is dreadful. This leads you to either buy player packs or NRG with real money. No thank you. If there was an option to buy player packs with the in-game currency you earn from playing it would be a little better but for some reason this just isn’t an option. The gameplay is otherwise amazing it’s just tough to play when your best players are constantly tired or injured.
Your next new addiction
by Texpsych on 2019/03/16 20:53
This game is hands-down the finest, most fun, and most innovative sports game ever to come to the iPhone. It has it all. Strategy, RPG elements, tough decisions that can seriously impact your club...there’s just so much to unwrap when you download this game. It scales very deep, and frankly I’m addicted. Careful if you’re impatient like I am, you’ll end up spending lots of real world money. It’s not “pay to play” per se. You don’t “have” to spend money. But, it’s worth every dime to me just from the sheer quality and innovative game play.
Player ratings and glitches
by RowanWithADabOfRanch on 2018/08/05 14:32

Great game with room for improvement
by Lucian4848 on 2018/07/27 19:09
Everything is balanced well and costs for players/staff of varying capabilities are reasonable. I love this game and I have played, and left reviews for over 100 games on the App Store. My only major concern is having to start completely back over whenever trying to move leagues. It should be changed so that if u place first in ur current league, I.e. USA2, and win the championship, you should have the option to advance to a higher league, i.e. USA1, while maintaining all ur progress, or at very least keeping ur facilities. Other than that, it’s a great game.
Love this game!
by IanBigBoyyy on 2019/06/24 19:43
This game is easily the best soccer game on the App Store. I do wish there were more stats — you can only see player stats for the current season and you can’t see transfer history (which would be helpful in deciding if you should sell a player or not — am I making a profit?). I get that takes up more storage, but I’d be OK with it. Being able to manage a national team would be sick. The game isn’t as easy as New Star Soccer, but the gameplay doesn’t take long to master. If you let go and it goes to the shooting screen, taking away the cancel button would make it more challenging. Overall, though, I LOVE this game. Main thing was I wish there was more stats and transfer history bc those are so important for a manager. Thanks sm!
Good game but nearly unplayable
by Da beast incarnate on 2019/04/21 00:17
It’s nearly impossible to get energy and that makes your players injured so you can’t improve your squad. Everything is too expensive. The skill gap between divisions is too large. This is basically why the game isn’t as good as it can be in a nutshell. The game is free but you really need to spend some money if you want the game to not be crazily hard. I get that it’s freemium but you should still be able to play without having to pay. Players should gain energy at halftime and after matches and make it so you can buy packs with the in game currency. Then I will leave a more positive review (if you improve the game)
More in depth and interaction with city?
by Csmaster6661 on 2018/07/19 17:20
Great game so far. I like how real it’s starting to feel. I like it. But I honestly think it would be great I think. If you added more interactions with the city you are in. Maybe more depth in merchandise and buildings. Maybe change what the city or location of your city is. Maybe add paint colors or building styles? Or host special events for the fans like autograph signings or like special charity events for the fans. Also maybe add ability to change player numbers? That’s what I got so far. I’ll keep you
Great Game
by CR7 fan 400 on 2018/07/12 23:25
Obsessed with this game can’t wait for the updates to come in so that you can personalize your own kit and team badge!!!! Great game I literally play this for hours, the adds are really annoying, which hinders the game play in the beginning but after I realized I really like the game so I decided to purchase the game with no adds. If you like managing and having a say in matches you will like this game!!!! Definitely recommend.
Pay To Play
by Lil Burn on 2018/07/18 01:51
Such a great game locked behind a towering pay-wall. I enjoy this game for what it is, quality gameplay with a solid manager system, but managing this team is founded on the idea that the player will spend money to get ahead. Almost every thing in this game(including some gameplay features themselves) have some sort of micro transaction involved. •Messed up on a play? Pay some cash and you can redo it! • Want some new players? Slide us a quick 5$ and you can open a pack! •Thought your players recovered energy on their own? Well you couldn’t be more wrong, now pay us! It’s simple things like these that take away the managerial experience away from the player a back them down into a corner with no option but to cough up cash. Money MUST be separated from certain aspects of the game to make this game better than it is. In closing, 2/5 Stars • Very Fun & Enjoyable Gameplay •Terrible “ Football Manager” • Cash Rules King
Amazing to play
by MrBnCnTn on 2018/11/07 08:09
Having played NSS for the longest time it takes some getting used to when it comes to the mechanics of this game in particular with the dribbling, shooting, passing and all those good stuff. But nonetheless the game is a masterpiece and easy to navigate that makes it unique in its own way. One thing I wish the developers can change is the In-App Purchases. The reason is who would really pay $4.99 just for a name change or a kit change, like really???
Fun but glitchy at times
by AC9$Alex on 2018/08/02 06:06
5 Stars cause this is actually a manager game I really enjoy and can’t get enough of, I love that the players have personalities and are all different in different ways. However the only problem I have is that when I click on the card packs after I click shop it just freezes. And I have to close it out and just play
Great addition to the New Star family
by RedDogRER on 2018/07/14 18:34
Great game that combines some of the elements from the old games and adds such a great layer of depth. Very bug free and very fun. Only reason I take a star away is cause I’d love to see a “full game” purchase for say $20 and then I can do any/all things as opposed to a bunch of small purchases. Also, can we get a confirm button for requesting board funds? Was tapping around trying to see what everything did and that was a (unwanted) surprise.
Deceitful, another typical loot box game.

They make the first season really easy and fun, and the best season after your promotion!, everything starts falling apart. It become borderline impossible to win any games, your players actually refuse to play on the field and will purposefully give opposition the ball. The solution? Pay with really money card packs that contain better players. But you have to buy lots of packs because the only good player wants other good players with him. This is the equivalent of EA games loot boxes. Awfully sad to see New Star Games go down this path of pay to win only games. Save your mental energy and get a different games.
Great game, a few things to improve upon
by Spechtsa on 2019/03/13 16:07
I love this game, up to Season 10 on my current manager, but a few things I have quibbles with: 1) I should be able to choose my penalty/free kick takers. Because the game still uses your formation for set pieces if my CF is my free kick taker it’s very difficult to get #s into the box. 2) The board. Oh, the board. No, I don’t want to sell my best player and top goal scorer even if you think it was a good offer. 3) There should be some advantage for moving leagues, if I’ve built up a dominant side, won the league, international cups, etc...why do I have to start all the way at the bottom again?
packs cost money
by Kwame M on 2018/07/12 02:02
I love the developers of the game and the new star franchise. New Star Soccer Manager is a great game, but the players lose energy way too fast and they don’t give them a lot of recovery time either. The free NRG they give you isn’t enough and you can’t get more unless you either pay for it or play another game which reduces the players energy more. If the packs could cost another earn-able currency then it could help out with the people who don’t do in app purchases. I hope you guys can balance the rate at which the players lose energy. Once again love the game and good work with the gameplay!
Becoming too tedious to progress without buying packs
by Dalekx2 on 2018/08/14 03:39
This is a great game at heart and could be a runner for game of the year. However, 4 seasons in and becoming a grind. Energy system is broke...too difficult to maintain even with team rotation...unless you buy packs. Also difficult to get cards to fix players management issues...unless you purchase packs through IAP. You can progress...but it becomes a slog. You can progress but requires too much work.
Love the game, but...
by dgwood10 on 2018/07/17 18:48
Like many comments have pointed out, the player energy levels deplete way too fast, and they don’t replenish fast enough (I don’t think they replenish at all?). I’ve spent $6.00 since downloading the app yesterday...$5 on the full version of the game and $1 on an energy pack. At this rate I’d be spending $1 a day to play the game. The devs need to figure out how to solve the energy level situation stat. Apart from that, the game is awesome!
Good but need fixes
by Voftab on 2018/08/19 16:47
The game is very promising but it’s very hard and sometimes forces you to give up ... it’s almost impossible to control player energy and happiness. Sometimes you can see other teams playing against your team and scoring two or three goals in a minute without letting you play. It’s almost unplayable after promoting your team to a higher level league! Change the balances please and fix those issues.
Great concept but needs improvement
by Doctordonut13 on 2018/07/22 21:01
I’ve loved this game but there are things that need to be added before I’ll continue working on it. First of all, I’d like a promotion system. I started in USA3, won the league easily, then won the playoff, but my team stayed in the same league. I stayed with the team one more season because I thought I did move up, but nope. Then I’d also like to manage other teams besides New Star FC. I think it’s great that this is the ideal starter team but I wanna manage my favorite club. I also think that teams in higher divisions should begin with better facilities. It doesn’t make sense that an EPL team has one grandstand and no training grounds The concept and gameplay are great, but tweaks are needed to take this game to the next level
One thing missing
by Suhjxhkdljjdelguxj on 2018/07/12 23:28
Ever since I retired my NSS player I dreamed of an update or game to be able to manage. Here it is, has a massive learning curve from the mechanics of the last game but is still bloody brilliant. Only criticisms is the game begging me to buy cards and the inability to change my team name (which I think is in the works). Highly recommend though, still my favorite mobile game series!
Crashes sometimes when you try to save replays
by k?! on 2018/07/16 14:24
I don’t want to lose my whole game progress in an important and difficult match because I want to save a goal replay. Also fan attendance is brutal, you’d think you’d be able to sell out a 4000 seat arena in a national cup final regardless of fan base or league. Great game though
NSS fan for awhile
by Bogilicious2 on 2018/08/05 20:52
I have played New Star titles since it was a flash game on Kongregate. This game is a fresh take on the game and runs fairly smooth. I don’t think it’s sporadic choppiness is enough to not give it 5 stars but it could be my phone. Really fun game and really good job New Star. Also the changeable camera angle is awesome.
Amazing game with minor problems
by Evan Rodenberger . on 2019/05/22 15:49
The gameplay of this game is fantastic. The variety of leagues and formations gives you the ability to try any managerial scenario you’d ever want. (besides national teams) However, the game does lag out my phone at least once every 20 minutes I play it. If the phone mechanics where a little better it’d be a perfect game.
Great Idea Ruined...
by Curtis R. Shideler on 2018/07/19 12:02
This is a great idea and next step for this series BUT... it is straight pay-to-play if you actually want to “play” the “game.” Sure, you can download it for free, but energy and pay systems big the experience down. I won’t be spending money on this, let alone even playing it. I loved New Star Soccer BEFORE the app I paid for was stolen by the dev and rebranded as pay-to-win. Doubt I’ll enjoy anything they make again if they keep this up. Back to Football Manager Mobile for me!
Decent game but lacking
by coachchrisrob on 2018/10/23 17:31
Played for a awhile and began to realize that you really have to buy cards in order to keep your team happy. I got through about half a season and most of my team was losing happiness because I couldn’t train them or because I couldn’t play them enough. Seems like there should be more ways to earn cards other then the ones provided.
Used to be a great game. Flooded with ads
by RedPhantom123 on 2019/10/25 23:04
The game was amazing before hand. It’s a lot of fun changing up players and moving up groups etc. The game used to give options to watch ads for coins you can use. Now, they play 25-45 sec ads after each game(and some games are basically bag length) with nothing in return. I guess they have to milk money somehow since people prob stopped playing. 5 stars -> 3
Good game. Small bug
by Sexual Butt on 2018/07/12 19:23
Game is fun but after matches there’s a bug where I can only choose one coaching card reward instead of all available. Ad plays and takes me back to main screen instead of back to other coach card rewards
A True Addiction
by SnotHexe on 2018/07/31 17:27
Amazing game! Top 5 game I’ve ever played on iPhone/iPad. Build teams, pro/rel, game play, and all of the management issues. MY ONLY criticism is the difficulty level. I set my teams to 100% and have enough subs to rotate on a consistent basis. As a result, I burn through teams that should be destroying me. Need to nerf the energy buff
to fix something
by NewstarFans on 2018/07/17 01:07
This game is such a fantastic game love it only reason im giving 4stars is that it would be nice if u perform well as a manager u can go to other teams and take controll of other team instead of just staying with the same team always please fix this and make it right Thanks a lot for this great game
Paying for Customization!
by Whaleboyyy on 2018/09/25 14:58
(Only giving it 5 stars so it can be seen I would give it 1 star)Are you kidding me? The new update allows you to change your logo, kits, and stadium and team name, that’s cool but then you go and try and edit it and it costs $5!! What a joke I’m not wasting my money just to be able to change my team name and what not, good job new star you turned your game into a pay to win. Terrible company I am never playing new star manager again, GARBAGE!

Pretty good
by 7Manchester7 on 2019/11/13 20:58
For me this is a very good game for the phone but it could be better some of the players with all the contracts are annoying and if you mess up it costs way to much money
Scam
by aycarambachichi on 2019/11/10 02:00
This is an absolute scam, you are absolutely unable to improve or win at all past a certain point unless you want to pay hella cash.
Great game, would love an update...
by TheJoker17 on 2019/10/31 04:47
I think this is a great game but would love to see more updates on the game. Like instead of paying the players through matches they are paid through yearly contracts. Also allowing customs on the players like changing names and numbers would be great. I love the different leagues with the abilities to change leagues and challenge yourself but I would definitely recommend a change to the formats to make it look a little cleaner. Presentation is just as important as gameplay. I absolutely love this game and hope you give some ideas a bit of consideration
This is great game for football fans

by Jeffover9000 on 2019/08/23 16:06
It’s a good game with some physics bugs in the game but the manager rating drops easily and is quite difficult to bring back up. The players also tend to get mad easily.
Good game but
by tcyplayzz on 2019/08/20 08:53
It’s a really good game but I don’t like that for the editing you have to pay, because in every other game it’s for free so I don’t get the purpose of having to pay so you can have your own club.
Good

Great game but
by Taken24 on 2019/08/02 04:08
This is a very good game I like it. Was playing new star soccer and came across this game. The only problem I have with is that there is no way for you to earn or get energy drinks for your team. There should be one drink that replenishes the entire squad because one by one is very difficult to do.
Bad
by heisbshehsbjs on 2019/07/31 03:17
Not a good game, the controls are terrible and the gameplay is boring
Has Potential
by KJ1098 on 2019/07/10 22:05
Hopefully, I will be able to update to a higher star review in the future. The base game is good, but needs some work. Unless you are winning the league, the board, fans, media, etc are all going to be upset. Not realistic, especially if you were just promoted. Once you are able to get silver + level players, they get upset because it’s difficult to get silver level trainers, so you cannot train them. There is also an issue with the keeper getting a red card. You have to play with a keeper and it doesn’t let you sub them out. You lose major points during interviews that test your knowledge on random facts about your play through. Interesting concept, but probably should only have positive effects, otherwise it makes the game annoying to play. Once they fix the balance of the game, I will probably come back to playing it.
Fun game
by Mitchell mitch on 2019/07/04 17:32
This game is really fun and I play it too much, but they really need to fix the half time team talk so it stops where your at rather than taking everything away and pissing you off....
Love this game!
by IanBigBoyyy on 2019/06/24 19:43
This game is easily the best soccer game on the App Store. I do wish there were more stats — you can only see player stats for the current season and you can’t see transfer history (which would be helpful in deciding if you should sell a player or not — am I making a profit?). I get that takes up more storage, but I’d be OK with it. Being able to manage a national team would be sick. The game isn’t as easy as New Star Soccer, but the gameplay doesn’t take long to master. If you let go and it goes to the shooting screen, taking away the cancel button would make it more challenging. Overall, though, I LOVE this game. Main thing was I wish there was more stats and transfer history bc those are so important for a manager. Thanks sm!

Can you please make it so you can simulate games, because playing every game becomes a bit tedious
Great game, but it desperately needs these 3 fixes
by bpladdict020 on 2019/05/31 17:16
In a nutshell, the game is incredible but it becomes unplayable after you lose a game. Your team gets really unhappy all of the sudden, which makes you lose again, which makes them more unhappy, etc. I also think there should be a lofted ball/cross mechanism and a player profile tab that shows you who dislikes who because the game makes it unclear. After you get through the long-winded explanation of the game, it’s really fun to play. But I got increasingly irritated with some of the gameplay issues and I ended up deleting the app. First of all, I was baffled by the fact that you can’t do a lofted pass. That means you can’t cross and playing through balls behind the defense is nearly impossible. I don’t know how they could leave that out, especially since they know the sport well. I keep on having issues with my opponents deliberately fouling me as a last resort in front of goal. That should be a straight red but the ref only gives me a free kick with no discipline for the other team. 9 formations is too few if you ask me. I wonder if a couple more could be added, especially ones heavy on offense. It would’ve helped me because my youth academy kept giving me forwards. The game is very harsh on you if you have a player out of position or two players with bad chemistry next to each other. Just having one hiccup in your lineup gives your opponents at least 4 extra chances on goal. I think it would be more reasonable if their overall was lowered for the match and possibly one extra chance but no more. Also, the game stopped telling me who disliked who after a while so maybe a special tab should be made just for that. I ended up deleting the game because all my players suddenly became unhappy with their form after they lost one game and tied another. Because of that they passed inaccurately, refused to defend and gave the opposition loads of chances to score. That lead to us losing, which led to them becoming more unhappy and I suddenly found myself stuck in a paradox. No matter how I played my cards I couldn’t get out of our downward spiral, so I gave up. Maybe reduce how unhappy they get per loss? It makes no sense for a team 6 points clear at the top of the table to panic after one bad match. This is the main issue of the game in my eyes. If you just reduced the amount of unhappiness per loss, added a crossing/lofted ball mechanism and some way of knowing which players dislike each other, I would immediately download the game again and resume playing. It was so much fun and I really want to see it improved.

Needs some tweaks
by itsyaboymattyt on 2019/05/15 15:24
This game has such a solid foundation but there are some things that can make it very frustrating. First of all the sort of downward spiral you can get stuck in is nearly comical. Let's say you lose 2 or 3 games in a row, now your players are concerned about team form which makes them unhappy, which causes them to make mistakes which makes you lose more, causing then to get more upset. You end up getting stuck as they keep making mistakes and it becomes very difficult to string a couple wins together, as only 1 win has a minimal effect. Maybe to combat this there could be some type of boost to happiness for breaking a losing streak? As the players would be happy for finally getting a win. Another thing that ties into this is player happiness. Maybe some players should be less effected and some be more (and not just from traits) Again tying with the happiness, I'd like to see a system where you can designate a players role. There's only 11 positions, not everyone can be a starter. But if you could search/sign people who are ok with being rotational players or subs it would also help with the happiness problem.
The pay to play thing is brutal.
by RayInOakland on 2019/04/29 18:34
I love the mechanics of the game, but the player packs, replay purchases, etc. are really off putting. Whenever I hit a rough patch in the game (after promotion), I find myself wondering if this is something I can play through or an artificial headache created to bilk $1.99 out of me.
Pretty good
by Aaassdddff on 2019/04/26 05:28
Wish there are 2 things: 1. More in-depth tactics & strategy for your team and 2. Full 90 min length 3D match Apart from that it’s pretty good ok
Fun gameplay, but everything costs money
by Branflakes1522 on 2019/04/21 01:53
Want new players? Pay money. Want to change your jerseys? Pay money. Want to change your team name? Pay money. Want to change your logo? Pay money. I think you know where I’m going with this.
Good game but nearly unplayable
by Da beast incarnate on 2019/04/21 00:17
It’s nearly impossible to get energy and that makes your players injured so you can’t improve your squad. Everything is too expensive. The skill gap between divisions is too large. This is basically why the game isn’t as good as it can be in a nutshell. The game is free but you really need to spend some money if you want the game to not be crazily hard. I get that it’s freemium but you should still be able to play without having to pay. Players should gain energy at halftime and after matches and make it so you can buy packs with the in game currency. Then I will leave a more positive review (if you improve the game)
Good
by tedchick on 2019/04/15 06:34

by Gall114 on 2019/04/10 23:17
This game is amazing.Its fun and addicting, I would spend hours playing this game.However as good as it might be, the game often freezes, the game freezes if I click the screen and I’ll have to delete the tab to play again.
$$$
by Ustas 1971 on 2019/03/25 07:55
2-4 hours and all your team will be tired and loss 100% bs all your opponents have 90% energy despite any number of games before game with u. Other words - impossible to play without donation.
Add Free Daily Pack
by Reppin taylor on 2019/03/19 18:26
Love the game, but it would be awesome to see a free once a day pack that could give you a random training, staff card, team talk, etc to improve the experience.
Your next new addiction
by Texpsych on 2019/03/16 20:53
This game is hands-down the finest, most fun, and most innovative sports game ever to come to the iPhone. It has it all. Strategy, RPG elements, tough decisions that can seriously impact your club...there’s just so much to unwrap when you download this game. It scales very deep, and frankly I’m addicted. Careful if you’re impatient like I am, you’ll end up spending lots of real world money. It’s not “pay to play” per se. You don’t “have” to spend money. But, it’s worth every dime to me just from the sheer quality and innovative game play.
Pretty good but needs work
by Bob jiggly Bob Bob on 2019/03/14 02:49
I think the developers need to realize this is a soccer game not rugby, why is it when the opposition get the ball they automatically kick it off field? When you are in the oppositions half of the field the game should still be playable not automatically ending play and making you use a restart. Allow the purchase of cards to be used by in game money! Also it seems that some of the games are literally scripted, it doesn’t matter how many goals you score or how many times you replay the game, you will not win that game as in the last dying seconds of the game even if you are 7-0 up, all of a sudden the opposition comes back at a ridiculous rate and you lose anyway, like you never had a chance, Needs plenty of improvement
Great game, a few things to improve upon
by Spechtsa on 2019/03/13 16:07
I love this game, up to Season 10 on my current manager, but a few things I have quibbles with: 1) I should be able to choose my penalty/free kick takers. Because the game still uses your formation for set pieces if my CF is my free kick taker it’s very difficult to get #s into the box. 2) The board. Oh, the board. No, I don’t want to sell my best player and top goal scorer even if you think it was a good offer. 3) There should be some advantage for moving leagues, if I’ve built up a dominant side, won the league, international cups, etc...why do I have to start all the way at the bottom again?
Editing

by Django_Z on 2019/02/11 00:57
I never bought any packs but I was promoted every season and won the premier league the first year I was in it. I think the game needs a little tuning. I'm good, but not that good. Made the journey a bit less enjoyable. Still love everything else about it.

As other reviewers have mentioned, energy recovery for players is a huge problem. Players are exhausted after just a couple games and never can recover. Only way to boost energy at the rate that makes it even playable is buy in game extras.
На удивление хорошая игра
by DISCOINFERNOpb on 2018/11/09 23:56
Игра затягивет, относительно продумана. Есть некоторые минусы, как например привязанность к карточкам, отсутствие молодежного состава. Из за второго приходится постоянно подстраиваться. Надеюсь, что игра продолжит развиваться.
Amazing to play
by MrBnCnTn on 2018/11/07 08:09
Having played NSS for the longest time it takes some getting used to when it comes to the mechanics of this game in particular with the dribbling, shooting, passing and all those good stuff. But nonetheless the game is a masterpiece and easy to navigate that makes it unique in its own way. One thing I wish the developers can change is the In-App Purchases. The reason is who would really pay $4.99 just for a name change or a kit change, like really???
It’s good
by okbigboiglukinho on 2018/11/05 14:34
One thing I think should happen though is that you should be less concerned about having to develop players. Or you have to be less concerned about having energy. I think they should regenerate more energy after each game.

Played for a awhile and began to realize that you really have to buy cards in order to keep your team happy. I got through about half a season and most of my team was losing happiness because I couldn’t train them or because I couldn’t play them enough. Seems like there should be more ways to earn cards other then the ones provided.
More money

Needs more ways to make money
No thanks
by Darth Ling on 2018/10/17 20:06
Controls are clunky. Have to spend real money to get new players. Wasn’t really fun enough to keep playing more than an hour, much less make me want to spend money.

Great game
Has potential
by The Acadian Kid on 2018/10/10 01:43
This would be a great game but there needs to be a few things worked out first. Firstly, when you’re chasing the ball you have to use your finger on the player you want to use but this often means covering up the portion of the screen that you want to move in to essentially making you blind to whatever is happening in that portion of the field. Secondly, sometimes this game feels very scripted, like it knows you have an objective to accomplish so the difficultly gets turned way up to make it near impossible. Third, the energy levels on players need to be reworked so that players regain at least some energy between games. Without this you’re constantly needing to focus on energy cans and, because of that, you can barely focus on player development. If they can fix these problems this could be a great game.
Idk

This game is fun but you’re doomed if you don’t spend money on the team and relationships

by wesyhood on 2018/10/03 04:02
please iv been asking for this for the longest time please i want to play my matching in full with a joystick & buttons on the screen please you guys will be the best developers ever if you do this for me please
Pros and cons
by Fytyufrftutrfcyftcfyttycf on 2018/10/01 05:05
It’s really fun and addicting it just gets annoying because the players are constantly out of energy and it’s almost impossible to have a fully energized team. And that would be fine if it weren’t for the fact then when their not energized they are constantly hurt. And since they are de-energized then you have to use your card bonus on energy instead of skill boosts. Then without the boosts the players are left unhappy. And i find it dumb that the only packs you can get are ones you have to pay real money for. They’re should be some you could buy with in game currency even if it’s just low leveled players at least i could then get more people on the bunch to use when energy is low.
Fantastic game
by Wedgie lover on 2018/09/29 12:04
This game is fantastic. One thing I would improve is to give a bit more selection over which position your youth academy players play. I have a player retire, and it would be very helpful to fill that position again, but I have no control over what position I call up. If you wanted to make it more complex, you could show a star rating of the players you have at each position in the academy so you could choose, knowing that you may not be choosing the best rookie because of a positional need.
$5 for team editing?!!!!
by Mackattackgold on 2018/09/28 23:33
Why would anyone pay FIVE DOLLARS to edit the name of their team!!!!!!!????
$5 for basic customization
by 4cowboys21 on 2018/09/27 21:09
Been waiting for this update for months, $4.99 for some very basic customization tools is pretty ridiculous though.
A shame
by Nick.R.P =] on 2018/09/27 18:53
The game itself is fun and almost completely exempt of glitches. However, the greed that the creators have spoils the game a little as we were promised customization for months and now we have to pay extra REAL money to customize. Come on creators, is it really worth $5 to see my team wear a different color?
A BIG BUST
by Tgod960 on 2018/09/27 01:09
$4.99 to just change a name and some colors on a jersey!!? Ridiculous.... have been waiting for this update to come out thinking it was gonna be free. Maybe $1.99, but 5 BUCKS! Time for a new game ✌🏼
5 for customization
by ejcool27 on 2018/09/26 04:26
Man I want to give this a good rating. I like the game play.its enjoyable to play. I understand the 5 bucks to remove ads that’s fine, but 5 for the ability to customize your team is unreal. It honestly leaves a sour taste in my mouth, and is probably going to cause me to delete the game.
4.99??????
by Vinnyguy10 on 2018/09/26 04:10
this is horrible. how come a soccer game can be so good and bad at the same time. OH I know, just charge them 4.99 which time they to change their club name of kits. UNBELIEVABLE
Paying for Customization!
by Whaleboyyy on 2018/09/25 14:58
(Only giving it 5 stars so it can be seen I would give it 1 star)Are you kidding me? The new update allows you to change your logo, kits, and stadium and team name, that’s cool but then you go and try and edit it and it costs $5!! What a joke I’m not wasting my money just to be able to change my team name and what not, good job new star you turned your game into a pay to win. Terrible company I am never playing new star manager again, GARBAGE!
Good game but.....
by jy8909 on 2018/09/25 14:46
There’s no reason someone should have to pay for the editor. $4.99 just to edit the kits, there are plenty of other games on here which allow you to edit the kit and pay with the in game currency or for absolutely free, if you want to play this game for fun with a generic team by all means go ahead. But if you want to make your own unique team, be prepared to pay the $4.99 just to edit virtual kits.
Great game, just make the editing free-ish
by TubaDiego on 2018/09/25 12:09
I love the gameplay of this, but the fact that the editing isn’t free bothers me. You should make some options free (team name, some colors, etc) but pay for others (stadium name, uniforms, etc)
Segunda temporada
by psjdbjansj on 2018/09/23 15:25
Si ascendes de division se hace imposible ganar, los otros equipos promedian 55 mientras el tuyo promedia 33, entras a un partido y te dan 3 situaciones de gol pero te hacen 7 goles es totalmente imposible, esta hecho para q a medida q avanzes en el juego compres sobres con plata de verdad muy reprobable no tiene sentido tratar de ascender ya q es imposible ganar un partido despues ojala corrijan las situaciones q tenes por partido y principalmente bajen la probabilidad q te hagan un gol, literal no te hacen menos de 6 goles y nada podes hacer.
Transfers
by Target icee on 2018/09/16 19:22
Great game The only problem is if my team is in the UK I’d like a to get players from Spain and the US too
I love it
by Ppsz2205 on 2018/09/08 14:28
It has everything. Awsome work; excited to see the future of it
DEVELOPERS PLEASE READ
by Keekoman on 2018/09/06 20:48
I love this game. I played New Star Soccer before and haven’t played it ever since this game came out since it’s so addicting. Everything was going great until a recent update starting glitching out the game. Sometime it’ll say one player failed to pass to another, which means they dislike each other. But not it says that one player failed to pass to themselves! It cause you to get scored on and makes no sense. Also sometimes when you make substitutions It won’t let you make the subs you want and keep people in it and only works if I put a person in the wrong position. The game got messed up from some update because this never came up when it first came out. The idea is good and the game is great, but I think the latest update messed some things up.
Big fan
by CallMeCheez012 on 2018/09/03 14:36
What an improvement from your previous New Star Soccer!!!
Transfer account
by Jai0204 on 2018/09/01 03:30
This game is so good I love it but the only problem is that I recently got a new phone and I can’t transfer my old account from my old phone to my new phone this is a problem because I have to restart from scratch and lose all my staff and players
Perfect
by RezaShamsi on 2018/08/30 07:08
This is absolutely the best soccer game and soccer manager game in mobile. Combined together.
Bux issue
by Gigifhghug on 2018/08/29 17:10
The game is great but could me better if we are allowed to carry money(bux) as we move to other national leagues
Please make promotion available for all leagues
by Tampablake128 on 2018/08/24 16:08
Spent some money on lower league which I realized I couldn’t even be promoted to the upper league. KOR 3. Love the game though
Good but need fixes
by Voftab on 2018/08/19 16:47
The game is very promising but it’s very hard and sometimes forces you to give up ... it’s almost impossible to control player energy and happiness. Sometimes you can see other teams playing against your team and scoring two or three goals in a minute without letting you play. It’s almost unplayable after promoting your team to a higher level league! Change the balances please and fix those issues.
Great until you HAVE to spend
by Jbbears 1028 on 2018/08/18 17:26
This game was very, very enjoyable. But I reached a point fairly quickly that I found if I didn’t spend, I lost every game...I don’t mind spending on games, but I don’t play games where I feel like am am forced to spend to even play at all. So moving on from this one....
Game is choppy and greedy
by Jon_8ball on 2018/08/15 09:46
This game stutters too much. And I feel as if I can’t win without paying. Also can’t seem to find a way to change my team name or select permanent colors
Becoming too tedious to progress without buying packs
by Dalekx2 on 2018/08/14 03:39
This is a great game at heart and could be a runner for game of the year. However, 4 seasons in and becoming a grind. Energy system is broke...too difficult to maintain even with team rotation...unless you buy packs. Also difficult to get cards to fix players management issues...unless you purchase packs through IAP. You can progress...but it becomes a slog. You can progress but requires too much work.
Fun but needs some tweaks
by Calipunk69 on 2018/08/10 21:56
Wish you can keep the upgrades and purchases when you change leagues. Also editing would be nice as well
Great Game!
by GameBoy11776600 on 2018/08/06 19:24
It’s a fun game and very well thought out, but it’s very laggy and hard to play. I’ll improve review when it is fixed! Great!! You fixed it! A little slow still, but better. You’ve really earned these five stars. Great game!
Great Game
by terryrozier on 2018/08/06 06:05
At first I thought it was pay to win, but the only thing you can buy is cards. You don’t need cards to win. Good mechanics and gameplay. I rate it!
NSS fan for awhile
by Bogilicious2 on 2018/08/05 20:52
I have played New Star titles since it was a flash game on Kongregate. This game is a fresh take on the game and runs fairly smooth. I don’t think it’s sporadic choppiness is enough to not give it 5 stars but it could be my phone. Really fun game and really good job New Star. Also the changeable camera angle is awesome.
Player ratings and glitches
by RowanWithADabOfRanch on 2018/08/05 14:32
Quality game and the best football game for a phone however the player rating are a bit broken... I dont know how the best team in Denmark’s best player would only be a 56 with 75 potential. Also I think as a manager you should be able to change teams, it gets boring after you’re in the same league for a few season and your team hasn’t gotten much better. There is also one glitch that happens where you make a substitution and the game freezes and it only seems to happen to me when I’m winning. Thank you
Like the update but...
by Avila29 on 2018/08/05 13:10
Definitely when changing clubs. I think less should be taken away. I know. Jumping from first division and being champion, doesn’t make sense to go to a different club and start at second division. Also when switching clubs. That club you switching to should have some sort of upgrades on facilities and also a signing bonus. When from millions of bux to like 50,000 bux... no point in my belief to change clubs and go to a complete downgrade. You should be advancing and accomplishing more and earning different cups. Also you should be able to buy players from different nationalities and not just from the country you’re playing in. That way you can refer to players from your old club and sign your best onto your new crew! Great game. I play everyday but some major updates should be done
Crashes after latest update
by mukica on 2018/08/04 07:58
After last update, 3 days ago it keeps crashing. Please fix this asap...
Great game but here's a suggestion
by Defe Steel on 2018/08/03 18:42
Why don't yall let layers improve when they play games? Player ability should increase the more they play and coach cards should just be a bonus
One little issue for me at the least
by printed30 on 2018/08/03 17:56
So great game you should try it but in my second season i have almost gone undefeated in i wish you could make the difficult harder
Great game but keeps dying
by Matt901026 on 2018/08/03 03:18
After the update, seems like the game can’t work properly. Keeps dying every time I play it
Deceitful, another typical loot box game.
by Russian153 on 2018/08/02 17:57
They make the first season really easy and fun, and the best season after your promotion!, everything starts falling apart. It become borderline impossible to win any games, your players actually refuse to play on the field and will purposefully give opposition the ball. The solution? Pay with really money card packs that contain better players. But you have to buy lots of packs because the only good player wants other good players with him. This is the equivalent of EA games loot boxes. Awfully sad to see New Star Games go down this path of pay to win only games. Save your mental energy and get a different games.
Fun but glitchy at times
by AC9$Alex on 2018/08/02 06:06
5 Stars cause this is actually a manager game I really enjoy and can’t get enough of, I love that the players have personalities and are all different in different ways. However the only problem I have is that when I click on the card packs after I click shop it just freezes. And I have to close it out and just play
Fun game, however
by Averroe5 on 2018/08/02 03:55
Don't expect to retain top player without spending money on it
A True Addiction
by SnotHexe on 2018/07/31 17:27
Amazing game! Top 5 game I’ve ever played on iPhone/iPad. Build teams, pro/rel, game play, and all of the management issues. MY ONLY criticism is the difficulty level. I set my teams to 100% and have enough subs to rotate on a consistent basis. As a result, I burn through teams that should be destroying me. Need to nerf the energy buff
Needs improvement
by EndChildSlavery on 2018/07/31 07:16
Game crashes a lot during matches and have to reset the game. Also tried to start a match the other day and instead of going to the game screen, it immediately went to the end of match screen and gave me a loss. Need to fix the bugs, otherwise a fun game to play.
One of the best soccer games
by DeFaMe1 on 2018/07/30 00:56
Needs improvement but it’s already better than most of these soccer games
Pay To win Piece of garbage
by Malci 162728 on 2018/07/28 21:13
Constant pushing to buy things, and the inability to keep a team content and happy, there’s almost zero percent chance to succeed unless you buy a pack, new star soccer was simple and achievable to succeed without having to buy anything. Fix this dumpster fire before you lose fans of your money hungry franchise👎🏽
Solid and excited to see the future
by Exciting Ideas on 2018/07/21 07:15
This game is truly remarkable when it comes to its ability to combine fun and challenging gameplay with an in depth simulation of managing a football club. This alone makes this game an amazing experience for me the only things that could Improve this game are. 1. Having the ability to manage a national team. 2. More customization of club kits and crest etc. 3. Manager transfers or the ability to manage another team. Also an extra thing that could be interesting would be the the ability to select a location or city that your team plays in and have certain rival teams which can correspond (teams from the same city or area or maybe a team who tend to beat you ) these rival teams would serve as extra objectives and could be used to make playing in the lower leagues in the beginning of the game more interesting as playing a rival team could mean could mean losing or gaining a large amount of trust from the fans or board. This same affect could be used if I player was bought from or sold to a rival club.
IS THIS REAL?
by Evangelavius on 2018/07/11 20:48
How?! You guys went from an amazingly fun game with New Star Soccer, to an even more fun, slightly different 3D version(which is perfect, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. And if it’s just a little worn out then a little upgrade never hurt did it?!)!! And the best part is that this game you can play for hours on end and never once have to worry about paying or having to get off to get energy back or something!! This company truly is a modern marvel, and should be considered the ideal model for other companies to follow. What I love is that they seriously brought every issue that they had to the table with NSS and clearly, they said “what can we do right now to either fix this, or to make it more fun?” And they absolutely nailed it! Easily the best game I’ve ever played. So far no bugs, no glitches, just another excellent game created by this company. Can’t wait for more from them! Thank you so much!
Decent game overall
by Mikeyy365 on 2018/07/20 15:42
I like the concept of the game with the managing and all but there are some things that could be improved. For example, you start out in the bottom league. My team finished first but my players ratings were well below some other teams ratings so I lost a good amount of games. I was fine with that cause I thought I’d move up one league and still be able to compete. Nope. I moved up 4 leagues and now my team is nowhere near the level of other teams. I didn’t realize that this was gonna happen so now my team gets hammered every game and I have serious player issues. I think each league you win you move up one league not a ridiculous amount. There was no warning or anything about this so it’s kind of screwed up my entire progress. There are also game control problems. For instance, you can’t lob the ball for a cross or play it over defenders. Also, when you give a pass, you can’t determine power. So lots of times I’ll give a through ball that goes all the way to the keeper even though I put it a little ahead of a player. I know I wrote a lot of things but this game is fun and addicting but could be a lot better.
Needs some tweaks
by itsyaboymattyt on 2019/05/15 15:24
This game has such a solid foundation but there are some things that can make it very frustrating. First of all the sort of downward spiral you can get stuck in is nearly comical. Let's say you lose 2 or 3 games in a row, now your players are concerned about team form which makes them unhappy, which causes them to make mistakes which makes you lose more, causing then to get more upset. You end up getting stuck as they keep making mistakes and it becomes very difficult to string a couple wins together, as only 1 win has a minimal effect. Maybe to combat this there could be some type of boost to happiness for breaking a losing streak? As the players would be happy for finally getting a win. Another thing that ties into this is player happiness. Maybe some players should be less effected and some be more (and not just from traits) Again tying with the happiness, I'd like to see a system where you can designate a players role. There's only 11 positions, not everyone can be a starter. But if you could search/sign people who are ok with being rotational players or subs it would also help with the happiness problem.
I have always been a fan of new star but...
by GladiusPrimo on 2018/07/18 03:34
I love literally everything about this game, however three things should be improved. One of them is the free kicks, they are either great scoring opportunities or pointless play resets. What I mean by that is that you can either directly shoot it or you are forced to pass it to someone next to you, there are no real set piece plays in the game. And I think this is due to the next problem. Why can’t you lob the ball? Pls pls add that with the passes just lets select the player and give us an option to hit the ball in a certain way or just two passing options. At least when the player is in a certain position, give the high cross option pls. Finally, the tutorial is kind of sloppy and I don’t feel like it fully introduces the functions of the games. What I mean by that is that there is a lot of managerial goals set by your bosses that I don’t really know how to achieve because the tutorial doesn’t really cover those aspects. For everything else, this game is pure gold.
Really fun but needs work
by yobroitsjo on 2018/07/18 07:43
TL;DR: Good gameplay, players never have energy so you can’t train them, also you never make money and can’t buy things I love the gameplay, the way to pass and dribble and shoot is great. However, it’s so easy to win games. In my first full season I am currently 19-1-0, I should not be that good yet if ever. Plus, there are many out of match things that are lacking. Players should gain energy between games and at halftime. If you don’t rest team at least every other game you will have no one that can play. This also makes it impossible to train the players which always makes them upset they aren’t training. This also means my team is never getting better which is a problem. There just needs to be more energy automatically given. Plus, it is soooo hard to make money and I never buy anything because I’m always broke and stuff is expensive. It takes me a whole season to upgrade 1-2 facilities to level 2, buy maybe a player and that’s it. I love the gameplay and overall feel but a lot of managing aspects need rebalancing.
Like the update but...

Should be 5 stars but..
by john3736251 on 2018/07/15 03:01
The energy and team improvement systems are lacking badly. This game has a ton of potential however. Players should generate energy in between games. One game should not completely make a player useless and extremely vulnerable to injury. The ability to acquire better players is also lacking. There should be a way to get packs without paying real money. Possibly another form of ingame currency that can be earned by winning matches or completing task, or leveling up your manager. The fact that there is no other way to get a pack is very unfortunate. Players should also progress or regress naturally whether that is at a halfway point in the season or after each year goes by. I want to grind to improve but I feel as if the developers of this game are heavily focused on forcing players to purchase packs. I hope there comes better ways to improve. Really want to continue to enjoy this game seeing that I­t­ has a ton of potential.
Great game, would love an update...
by TheJoker17 on 2019/10/31 04:47
I think this is a great game but would love to see more updates on the game. Like instead of paying the players through matches they are paid through yearly contracts. Also allowing customs on the players like changing names and numbers would be great. I love the different leagues with the abilities to change leagues and challenge yourself but I would definitely recommend a change to the formats to make it look a little cleaner. Presentation is just as important as gameplay. I absolutely love this game and hope you give some ideas a bit of consideration
Should be 5 Stars but minor problem
by Phxferrari on 2018/07/23 17:12
I love this game and I have had a lot of fun with it for the past week or so but I just have one minor problem. The European leagues as qualification has a minor problem. I got knocked out in the playoff (the last round) round of the champions league qualifiers and I was expecting so Europa League Football but instead I had no Europe an games. I hope the can fix it where if you get knocked out in the 2nd round qualifying of champions league then you go to the 3rd round qualifying of Europa League instead of going cause that’s how it works in real life. You also can’t transfer list players which is kind another small, but important piece. Plus if your a really bad team and you face a really good team, I understand they will Score a lot but they also score every free kick which is pretty unrealistic. Otherwise it’s a great game and I enjoy it a lot.
Excellent game, could be improved
by Gangsta Timmy on 2018/07/16 05:06
First off I’d like to say that this game is ingenious and creative, and I’m surprised at how much fun it is. I’ve played new star soccer before but this is amazing. However, I have a few ideas that could improve the game. There should be events where you have to defend and clear the ball, where the opposing side has possession and you have to stop them. Also, there could be an event where you’re the goalkeeper and you have to save the ball or be punished with a goal. Some other things: passing back behind the half or passing to the goalie should not stop the play, possibly make a way to cancel passes, maybe find a way to be able to obtain more energy cards when selecting that option, and have player packs that you can buy with in-game currency. I feel that the game could be better with these, but it certainly is fun and unique 👍.
Soo close
by Dackzar on 2018/07/26 15:27
I love the gameplay, it’s really fun and addicting. Nothing beats the feeling of a well orchestrated plan coming together for a win. The biggest thing I wish was that you could select more than end of game reward. It would truly enhance the gameplay a remarkable amount. The opportunity cost of not selecting either the skills coach or fitness coach is ridiculous. And the only reason I can see for having the scout is so that you can complete board missions. The other thing that really pisses me off is that when you scout or bring up a rookie, while they are good players, they are never for a position I care about. It seems like they are the least useful position for your squad at that time. I got like 3 DRs in a row. I wish there was a way to select a position you want to train the rookies to.

Has Potential
by KJ1098 on 2019/07/10 22:05
Hopefully, I will be able to update to a higher star review in the future. The base game is good, but needs some work. Unless you are winning the league, the board, fans, media, etc are all going to be upset. Not realistic, especially if you were just promoted. Once you are able to get silver + level players, they get upset because it’s difficult to get silver level trainers, so you cannot train them. There is also an issue with the keeper getting a red card. You have to play with a keeper and it doesn’t let you sub them out. You lose major points during interviews that test your knowledge on random facts about your play through. Interesting concept, but probably should only have positive effects, otherwise it makes the game annoying to play. Once they fix the balance of the game, I will probably come back to playing it.
Pros and cons
by Fytyufrftutrfcyftcfyttycf on 2018/10/01 05:05
It’s really fun and addicting it just gets annoying because the players are constantly out of energy and it’s almost impossible to have a fully energized team. And that would be fine if it weren’t for the fact then when their not energized they are constantly hurt. And since they are de-energized then you have to use your card bonus on energy instead of skill boosts. Then without the boosts the players are left unhappy. And i find it dumb that the only packs you can get are ones you have to pay real money for. They’re should be some you could buy with in game currency even if it’s just low leveled players at least i could then get more people on the bunch to use when energy is low.
Pretty good but needs work
by Bob jiggly Bob Bob on 2019/03/14 02:49
I think the developers need to realize this is a soccer game not rugby, why is it when the opposition get the ball they automatically kick it off field? When you are in the oppositions half of the field the game should still be playable not automatically ending play and making you use a restart. Allow the purchase of cards to be used by in game money! Also it seems that some of the games are literally scripted, it doesn’t matter how many goals you score or how many times you replay the game, you will not win that game as in the last dying seconds of the game even if you are 7-0 up, all of a sudden the opposition comes back at a ridiculous rate and you lose anyway, like you never had a chance, Needs plenty of improvement
Has potential
by The Acadian Kid on 2018/10/10 01:43
This would be a great game but there needs to be a few things worked out first. Firstly, when you’re chasing the ball you have to use your finger on the player you want to use but this often means covering up the portion of the screen that you want to move in to essentially making you blind to whatever is happening in that portion of the field. Secondly, sometimes this game feels very scripted, like it knows you have an objective to accomplish so the difficultly gets turned way up to make it near impossible. Third, the energy levels on players need to be reworked so that players regain at least some energy between games. Without this you’re constantly needing to focus on energy cans and, because of that, you can barely focus on player development. If they can fix these problems this could be a great game.
Wish you had the choice
by Nbaaaaaaa on 2018/07/22 07:41
I wish you had the choice to be your own player like be a pro... almost like your other game but more into this game. Invest and make millions of coins if your player gains up to speculation with his contract I wish the player and this game would allow you to make millions considering that it’s 5 dollars for 1million coins so yeah coins aren’t hard to get but in this game if you don’t use real money they are hard to get. and is amazing you know ? But it’s only an idea and I honestly hate the happiness problem in this game and the player energy problem it makes the game hard and its to much to handle and it’s hard to play a lot of games cuz we can’t buy anything with coins to make them not tired it’s a pain. Please take this into consideration.
Fantastic game
by Wedgie lover on 2018/09/29 12:04
This game is fantastic. One thing I would improve is to give a bit more selection over which position your youth academy players play. I have a player retire, and it would be very helpful to fill that position again, but I have no control over what position I call up. If you wanted to make it more complex, you could show a star rating of the players you have at each position in the academy so you could choose, knowing that you may not be choosing the best rookie because of a positional need.
Could be Improved
by Goobyboi4200 on 2018/07/21 12:44
Huge fan of the original NSS and now manager too. The games are fantastic. However in this particular installment there are some serious improvements that should be made. What I loved about NSS was that it was not a money grab like other games in the App Store, however manager feels more like one. You truly have to grind to make any kind of money to buy upgrades for facilities and better players, but you simply cannot grind because the players on your squad are completely gassed after 1-2 matches. The whole energy aspect of this new game is dreadful. This leads you to either buy player packs or NRG with real money. No thank you. If there was an option to buy player packs with the in-game currency you earn from playing it would be a little better but for some reason this just isn’t an option. The gameplay is otherwise amazing it’s just tough to play when your best players are constantly tired or injured.
Your next new addiction
by Texpsych on 2019/03/16 20:53
This game is hands-down the finest, most fun, and most innovative sports game ever to come to the iPhone. It has it all. Strategy, RPG elements, tough decisions that can seriously impact your club...there’s just so much to unwrap when you download this game. It scales very deep, and frankly I’m addicted. Careful if you’re impatient like I am, you’ll end up spending lots of real world money. It’s not “pay to play” per se. You don’t “have” to spend money. But, it’s worth every dime to me just from the sheer quality and innovative game play.
Player ratings and glitches
by RowanWithADabOfRanch on 2018/08/05 14:32
Quality game and the best football game for a phone however the player rating are a bit broken... I dont know how the best team in Denmark’s best player would only be a 56 with 75 potential. Also I think as a manager you should be able to change teams, it gets boring after you’re in the same league for a few season and your team hasn’t gotten much better. There is also one glitch that happens where you make a substitution and the game freezes and it only seems to happen to me when I’m winning. Thank you
Great game with room for improvement
by Lucian4848 on 2018/07/27 19:09
Everything is balanced well and costs for players/staff of varying capabilities are reasonable. I love this game and I have played, and left reviews for over 100 games on the App Store. My only major concern is having to start completely back over whenever trying to move leagues. It should be changed so that if u place first in ur current league, I.e. USA2, and win the championship, you should have the option to advance to a higher league, i.e. USA1, while maintaining all ur progress, or at very least keeping ur facilities. Other than that, it’s a great game.
Love this game!
by IanBigBoyyy on 2019/06/24 19:43
This game is easily the best soccer game on the App Store. I do wish there were more stats — you can only see player stats for the current season and you can’t see transfer history (which would be helpful in deciding if you should sell a player or not — am I making a profit?). I get that takes up more storage, but I’d be OK with it. Being able to manage a national team would be sick. The game isn’t as easy as New Star Soccer, but the gameplay doesn’t take long to master. If you let go and it goes to the shooting screen, taking away the cancel button would make it more challenging. Overall, though, I LOVE this game. Main thing was I wish there was more stats and transfer history bc those are so important for a manager. Thanks sm!
Good game but nearly unplayable
by Da beast incarnate on 2019/04/21 00:17
It’s nearly impossible to get energy and that makes your players injured so you can’t improve your squad. Everything is too expensive. The skill gap between divisions is too large. This is basically why the game isn’t as good as it can be in a nutshell. The game is free but you really need to spend some money if you want the game to not be crazily hard. I get that it’s freemium but you should still be able to play without having to pay. Players should gain energy at halftime and after matches and make it so you can buy packs with the in game currency. Then I will leave a more positive review (if you improve the game)
More in depth and interaction with city?
by Csmaster6661 on 2018/07/19 17:20
Great game so far. I like how real it’s starting to feel. I like it. But I honestly think it would be great I think. If you added more interactions with the city you are in. Maybe more depth in merchandise and buildings. Maybe change what the city or location of your city is. Maybe add paint colors or building styles? Or host special events for the fans like autograph signings or like special charity events for the fans. Also maybe add ability to change player numbers? That’s what I got so far. I’ll keep you
Great Game
by CR7 fan 400 on 2018/07/12 23:25
Obsessed with this game can’t wait for the updates to come in so that you can personalize your own kit and team badge!!!! Great game I literally play this for hours, the adds are really annoying, which hinders the game play in the beginning but after I realized I really like the game so I decided to purchase the game with no adds. If you like managing and having a say in matches you will like this game!!!! Definitely recommend.
Pay To Play
by Lil Burn on 2018/07/18 01:51
Such a great game locked behind a towering pay-wall. I enjoy this game for what it is, quality gameplay with a solid manager system, but managing this team is founded on the idea that the player will spend money to get ahead. Almost every thing in this game(including some gameplay features themselves) have some sort of micro transaction involved. •Messed up on a play? Pay some cash and you can redo it! • Want some new players? Slide us a quick 5$ and you can open a pack! •Thought your players recovered energy on their own? Well you couldn’t be more wrong, now pay us! It’s simple things like these that take away the managerial experience away from the player a back them down into a corner with no option but to cough up cash. Money MUST be separated from certain aspects of the game to make this game better than it is. In closing, 2/5 Stars • Very Fun & Enjoyable Gameplay •Terrible “ Football Manager” • Cash Rules King
Amazing to play
by MrBnCnTn on 2018/11/07 08:09
Having played NSS for the longest time it takes some getting used to when it comes to the mechanics of this game in particular with the dribbling, shooting, passing and all those good stuff. But nonetheless the game is a masterpiece and easy to navigate that makes it unique in its own way. One thing I wish the developers can change is the In-App Purchases. The reason is who would really pay $4.99 just for a name change or a kit change, like really???
Fun but glitchy at times
by AC9$Alex on 2018/08/02 06:06
5 Stars cause this is actually a manager game I really enjoy and can’t get enough of, I love that the players have personalities and are all different in different ways. However the only problem I have is that when I click on the card packs after I click shop it just freezes. And I have to close it out and just play
Great addition to the New Star family
by RedDogRER on 2018/07/14 18:34
Great game that combines some of the elements from the old games and adds such a great layer of depth. Very bug free and very fun. Only reason I take a star away is cause I’d love to see a “full game” purchase for say $20 and then I can do any/all things as opposed to a bunch of small purchases. Also, can we get a confirm button for requesting board funds? Was tapping around trying to see what everything did and that was a (unwanted) surprise.
Deceitful, another typical loot box game.
by Russian153 on 2018/08/02 17:57
They make the first season really easy and fun, and the best season after your promotion!, everything starts falling apart. It become borderline impossible to win any games, your players actually refuse to play on the field and will purposefully give opposition the ball. The solution? Pay with really money card packs that contain better players. But you have to buy lots of packs because the only good player wants other good players with him. This is the equivalent of EA games loot boxes. Awfully sad to see New Star Games go down this path of pay to win only games. Save your mental energy and get a different games.
Great game, a few things to improve upon
by Spechtsa on 2019/03/13 16:07
I love this game, up to Season 10 on my current manager, but a few things I have quibbles with: 1) I should be able to choose my penalty/free kick takers. Because the game still uses your formation for set pieces if my CF is my free kick taker it’s very difficult to get #s into the box. 2) The board. Oh, the board. No, I don’t want to sell my best player and top goal scorer even if you think it was a good offer. 3) There should be some advantage for moving leagues, if I’ve built up a dominant side, won the league, international cups, etc...why do I have to start all the way at the bottom again?
packs cost money
by Kwame M on 2018/07/12 02:02
I love the developers of the game and the new star franchise. New Star Soccer Manager is a great game, but the players lose energy way too fast and they don’t give them a lot of recovery time either. The free NRG they give you isn’t enough and you can’t get more unless you either pay for it or play another game which reduces the players energy more. If the packs could cost another earn-able currency then it could help out with the people who don’t do in app purchases. I hope you guys can balance the rate at which the players lose energy. Once again love the game and good work with the gameplay!
Becoming too tedious to progress without buying packs
by Dalekx2 on 2018/08/14 03:39
This is a great game at heart and could be a runner for game of the year. However, 4 seasons in and becoming a grind. Energy system is broke...too difficult to maintain even with team rotation...unless you buy packs. Also difficult to get cards to fix players management issues...unless you purchase packs through IAP. You can progress...but it becomes a slog. You can progress but requires too much work.
Love the game, but...
by dgwood10 on 2018/07/17 18:48
Like many comments have pointed out, the player energy levels deplete way too fast, and they don’t replenish fast enough (I don’t think they replenish at all?). I’ve spent $6.00 since downloading the app yesterday...$5 on the full version of the game and $1 on an energy pack. At this rate I’d be spending $1 a day to play the game. The devs need to figure out how to solve the energy level situation stat. Apart from that, the game is awesome!
Good but need fixes
by Voftab on 2018/08/19 16:47
The game is very promising but it’s very hard and sometimes forces you to give up ... it’s almost impossible to control player energy and happiness. Sometimes you can see other teams playing against your team and scoring two or three goals in a minute without letting you play. It’s almost unplayable after promoting your team to a higher level league! Change the balances please and fix those issues.
Great concept but needs improvement
by Doctordonut13 on 2018/07/22 21:01
I’ve loved this game but there are things that need to be added before I’ll continue working on it. First of all, I’d like a promotion system. I started in USA3, won the league easily, then won the playoff, but my team stayed in the same league. I stayed with the team one more season because I thought I did move up, but nope. Then I’d also like to manage other teams besides New Star FC. I think it’s great that this is the ideal starter team but I wanna manage my favorite club. I also think that teams in higher divisions should begin with better facilities. It doesn’t make sense that an EPL team has one grandstand and no training grounds The concept and gameplay are great, but tweaks are needed to take this game to the next level
One thing missing
by Suhjxhkdljjdelguxj on 2018/07/12 23:28
Ever since I retired my NSS player I dreamed of an update or game to be able to manage. Here it is, has a massive learning curve from the mechanics of the last game but is still bloody brilliant. Only criticisms is the game begging me to buy cards and the inability to change my team name (which I think is in the works). Highly recommend though, still my favorite mobile game series!
Crashes sometimes when you try to save replays
by k?! on 2018/07/16 14:24
I don’t want to lose my whole game progress in an important and difficult match because I want to save a goal replay. Also fan attendance is brutal, you’d think you’d be able to sell out a 4000 seat arena in a national cup final regardless of fan base or league. Great game though
NSS fan for awhile
by Bogilicious2 on 2018/08/05 20:52
I have played New Star titles since it was a flash game on Kongregate. This game is a fresh take on the game and runs fairly smooth. I don’t think it’s sporadic choppiness is enough to not give it 5 stars but it could be my phone. Really fun game and really good job New Star. Also the changeable camera angle is awesome.
Amazing game with minor problems
by Evan Rodenberger . on 2019/05/22 15:49
The gameplay of this game is fantastic. The variety of leagues and formations gives you the ability to try any managerial scenario you’d ever want. (besides national teams) However, the game does lag out my phone at least once every 20 minutes I play it. If the phone mechanics where a little better it’d be a perfect game.
Great Idea Ruined...
by Curtis R. Shideler on 2018/07/19 12:02
This is a great idea and next step for this series BUT... it is straight pay-to-play if you actually want to “play” the “game.” Sure, you can download it for free, but energy and pay systems big the experience down. I won’t be spending money on this, let alone even playing it. I loved New Star Soccer BEFORE the app I paid for was stolen by the dev and rebranded as pay-to-win. Doubt I’ll enjoy anything they make again if they keep this up. Back to Football Manager Mobile for me!
Decent game but lacking
by coachchrisrob on 2018/10/23 17:31
Played for a awhile and began to realize that you really have to buy cards in order to keep your team happy. I got through about half a season and most of my team was losing happiness because I couldn’t train them or because I couldn’t play them enough. Seems like there should be more ways to earn cards other then the ones provided.
Used to be a great game. Flooded with ads
by RedPhantom123 on 2019/10/25 23:04
The game was amazing before hand. It’s a lot of fun changing up players and moving up groups etc. The game used to give options to watch ads for coins you can use. Now, they play 25-45 sec ads after each game(and some games are basically bag length) with nothing in return. I guess they have to milk money somehow since people prob stopped playing. 5 stars -> 3
Good game. Small bug
by Sexual Butt on 2018/07/12 19:23
Game is fun but after matches there’s a bug where I can only choose one coaching card reward instead of all available. Ad plays and takes me back to main screen instead of back to other coach card rewards
A True Addiction
by SnotHexe on 2018/07/31 17:27
Amazing game! Top 5 game I’ve ever played on iPhone/iPad. Build teams, pro/rel, game play, and all of the management issues. MY ONLY criticism is the difficulty level. I set my teams to 100% and have enough subs to rotate on a consistent basis. As a result, I burn through teams that should be destroying me. Need to nerf the energy buff
to fix something
by NewstarFans on 2018/07/17 01:07
This game is such a fantastic game love it only reason im giving 4stars is that it would be nice if u perform well as a manager u can go to other teams and take controll of other team instead of just staying with the same team always please fix this and make it right Thanks a lot for this great game
Paying for Customization!
by Whaleboyyy on 2018/09/25 14:58
(Only giving it 5 stars so it can be seen I would give it 1 star)Are you kidding me? The new update allows you to change your logo, kits, and stadium and team name, that’s cool but then you go and try and edit it and it costs $5!! What a joke I’m not wasting my money just to be able to change my team name and what not, good job new star you turned your game into a pay to win. Terrible company I am never playing new star manager again, GARBAGE!
