I've always been a big fan of soccer sims, but finding a decent one on a mobile device is like scouting for a decent English center forward - i.e. they are few and far between.

Ultimate Football is not a bad attempt at a mobile soccer game. In terms of the quality of its graphics and sound it's probably in the same league as console forerunners such as Kick Off and Sensible Soccer rather than the likes of Pro Evolultion or FIFA. The player animation may not be entirely realistic but the crowd noises are authentic and the viewpoint adopted is that 3D angled one used in modern soccer sims.

One of the things that impressed me most about Ultimate Football is its intuitive control system. You control a player simply by tapping on him and dragging the stylus to where you want him to run. Passing is done by tapping the player you wish to pass to, and to shoot you just need to tap on the goal. You can even hone your skills in Ultimate Football's tutorial mode before you start a match.

Ultimate Football lets you choose to play either an exhibition match against the PDA or take part in either the English or Italian league. Unfortunately though, there's no two-player option, which decreases the longevity of the game somewhat.

It's certainly one of the better attempts at a mobile soccer sim, but don't expect anything too realistic from Ultimate Football.
