Real Football 2013 is a realistic soccer playing/management sim where you have to master every aspect of playing and coaching a soccer team.
When you start Real Football 2013, you must choose the club that you want to take to the top. Unfortunately, due to licensing issues not all of the players and teams are real names which reduces the realism a bit. A detailed tutorial explains the different facets of the game during pre-season. You must develop the abilities of your players but also to buy reinforcements in transfer windows which can suddenly open. You can also benefit from one free random transfer per day although the quality of the player you receive varies.
Improve your club
As you progress through RF 2013, you earn virtual money which allows you to expand the club facilities, the training center and things such as the medical care center or spa. You can even hire more qualified coaching staff. And if you're short of cash, you can use real world cash to purchase more virtual credit.
Tactically good but room for improvement
The tactical side of RF 2013 is very well done with a clear and practical interface. However, the actual game phases are disappointing, especially considering the amount of effort needed to get so far. The gameplay is average and you can make lots of different moves. However, some of the animations are quite poor and repetitive.
Remember that older versions of Real Football on iOS are still available for download:
Real Football 2013 is overall a highly realistic soccer sim although the actual playing of games and graphics could definitely be improved.
