Soccer may have an enormous fan base throughout the world, but only the most die-hard fans of the sport will find much to love with STICKMAN SOCCER 2014. The game's not terrible, but it suffers from two sets of poor controls, which frustrate the user in different ways. The virtual joystick isn't reactive enough and -- as several other apps have shown -- isn't the ideal way to control players on-screen. The automatic mode, though, reduces the player to spectator too often, especially on defensive plays. 

The characters are cute at first but soon become a collection of on-screen blurs, largely indistinguishable from each other -- and it's hard to care who wins. The alternate game modes are fun, but accessing them requires players to slog through some not entirely fun gameplay and to watch some intrusive ads. World Cup fever might be encouraging interest in soccer, but this game won't maintain that attention.
