It's no secret that the App Store currently lacks any good soccer games, especially after FIFA Mobile Soccer ended up being more of a card game and less of a sports game. One of the most entertaining soccer games out there is Active Soccer 2, which - shockingly - focuses on actually playing soccer, and now we just got Active Soccer 2 DX [$2.99], an improved version of Active Soccer 2 that comes with some new features and plenty of little improvements. There are some gameplay improvements like a dedicated dash button, many more teams, updates to team data and competitions to bring them up to date, classic teams addition (with the likes of Maladona and Cruiff), and more.

Active Soccer 2 DX might not have the visuals of the latest soccer games, but it offers the kind of soccer game older players (like me) grew up on while also improving the formula. You won't get scripted goals here (cross, header, goal) that you get in games like FIFA, which definitely makes it more challenging. The game costs $2.99 and is out now (at least in the US).

    This is THE KING of football/soccer games on iOS. AWESOME improvements πŸ‘πŸ»!!!

    Couple of improvements not mentioned above:
    - you can switch off auto player switching
    - there are 3 game speed options (slow/normal/fast) - go fast πŸ˜‰

    Bahahaha: "...which - shockingly - focuses on actually playing soccer"

    it's a shame that you totally forgot about PES, which is focused on gameplay (btw in my opinion best gameplay and touch controls on mobile)
    where every goal is different and hugely rewarding
    not to mention about real players, incredible physics system and much more!
    i dunno exactly why this game is missing here and apart from single news there is no deep review..

    • Raoul Rico

      because there is no mobile version.
      unfortunately

      • zim3k

        PES2017, check in AppStore

        It is only soft launched in a few countries, that's why.

    The game has MFi Support?!
