It's basically big scam...

This game has a very good premise. But it's just big mess. It starts out all fun but as you get further Score Hero starts to become totally impossible. Your teammates are braindead idiots cos the AI is embarrasing and broken. The opposition players are always faster and they are always able to cut your passes when your teammates decide to jog away (or stand still like statues) when receiving a pass. The energy system or whatever is a joke. A BIG ONE. By this, game makes sure you have to spend your fake dollars or actual money to progress. Its soooo frustrating to always lose all your energy cos you cant get a simple cross in the box without it being intercepted ( cos your teammates dont brother to jump). This game is just terrible. Its a scam, way too difficult to be enjoyable or fun, full of glitches and bugs and whatever and trying to get you to watch stupid ads all the time to earn 10 fake dollars. Don't use your real money in this. Its not worth it. It would be one star eaaaasily, but the premise is good and the graphics are ok so i will give it two but as god is my witness, i will not recommend this to anyone! Its a big big big big big mess and scam.

This sports-themed app features lifelike graphics and simple gameplay that anyone can grasp and understand. Score! Hero 2's focuses on players draw a line with their finger on the screen to kick the ball or pass it to a teammate. Once the ball is in play, they'll get a chance to direct teammates who have control of it, ultimately trying to make a goal. The matches are compiled as a season, and players can view their progress on a numbered map. You may enter a game that's already started and try to contribute to the score. Players can't really employ too much strategy throughout games -- they're told at one point to aim for the top corner of the goal, but the outcome is basically determined by how straight a line they can draw on the screen and how the goalie reacts, which seems to be somewhat arbitrary. Passing, too, can be tricky if the ball is intercepted.

Players can run out of energy, which is spent shooting and passing, and they may be motivated to buy additional bundles of cash to get more. They can also wait six minutes though, for it to replenish -- and won't run out at all if they play well. Notably, the clubs and leagues included in this game could be a draw for U.K. football fans, and U.S. soccer aficionados may potentially enjoy trying to maneuver around the field and the fanfare surrounding goals. Younger kids, too, might get a kick out of the cheering crowd and fairly simple game controls in Score! Hero 2 -- even if they don't fully grasp the rules of the sport.
