You know it's a tough market when mega publisher Gameloft starts slashing their prices on their games. Real Soccer 2009 [App Store] is the latest Gameloft title to find a price drop to $0.99.
I enjoy the gameplay in X2 Football more than in Real Soccer because the controls are so much more intuitive and responsive.
.... For me, the game seems to flow better in X2 Football, but I will say that Real Soccer has more depth in terms of teams, the use of real player names, and the ability to choose different stadiums.
Still, $0.99 can be hard to compete against, and Real Soccer 2009 is remains a pretty solid title. Here's our early video of Real Soccer 2009 when it was first released:
