Chop Chop Soccer is a fun soccer sim for the iPhone and iPod touch. Although not realistic like PES or Real Soccer, Chop Chop is well worth installing if you're a soccer fan.
The control system in Chop Chop Soccer couldn't be simpler. Unlike other the more serious iPhone soccer titles, there's no on-screen joyppad or buttons. Instead, you move your player by holding your finger down and dragging it around the screen, with the ball automatically sticking to your feet. Passing and shooting in Chop Chop Soccer is done by flicking your finger in the direction you want the ball to go.
Although the controls are intuitive, your finger can get in the way at times, unlike the iPad version, Chop Chop Soccer HD, which is more enjoyable to control.
Chop Chop Soccer has a real sense of fun. The 3D graphics are large, bright and colorful. Refreshingly for a soccer sim, the players are girls, and they all look like they’ve come straight from an episode of the Powerpuff Girls cartoon.
There are three game modes in Chop Chop Soccer You can play an exhibition match, enter a tournament as one of 12 international teams, or practice the controls in the training mode.
Noticeably absent is a multiplayer mode. This would’ve helped to improve the longevity of Chop Chop Soccer HD, which is a bit too easy to keep you hooked for long.
Nevertheless, Chop Chop Soccer makes for an amusing and refreshing change to all those straight iPhone soccer games.
