It wasn't the business model that rankled with us, however. It was more the fact the action on the pitch was utterly woeful, as our 4/10 review made abundantly clear.
Still, Gameloft appears to be attempting something a little different with this second shot on the freemium footy net, with Real Football 2013 possessing a more feature-packed take on the beautiful game.
The first big new change is the user experience. The whole UI and progression side of the game have been completely overhauled.
Onto the subs bench go the traditional - but dull - menus from the last game. Onto the pitch comes an interface that more closely resembles a footballing community (stadium, gym, etc.).
You can upgrade these facilities to help certain areas of your club - substituting better medical facilities for inferior ones heals your players faster, for instance - and there's definitely more of a personal feeling about this side as a result.
There's more of an involved career element to this year's edition, too: you're now in charge of one club and have to turn it into a superstar team.
You start the game with a selection of pretty poor players, but by using cash earned in matches (or bought with actual money), you get to initiate "transfers" for new signings, as well as get handed one free transfer per day.
