Description:

New Star Soccer 5 is a single-player sports management game that has you creating a young athlete and attempting to become an elite soccer player. In addition to improving your 16-year-old's abilities on the pitch, you'll also be responsible for training, conducting interviews, signing sponsorship deals, and even deciding which luxury items to purchase.

You'll also be able to spend your wealth at casinos and acquire exotic cars, lavish new homes, and other status symbols of the rich and famous. Like most games of its type, the gameplay primarily involves navigating a series of windows comprised of icons and text. There's little emphasis on presentation, so matches are viewed from two-dimensional, overhead perspective.

As you progress, a newspaper will display highlights (and potential low-lights) of your athlete's career depending on the decisions you make. The game includes thousands of clubs and hundreds of leagues, though there are no licenses for real-life clubs or players. While there is no multiplayer support, the game does include a global leaderboard so that you can compare your progress and transfer value against the stars from other players around the world.

Players have two options for playing New Star Soccer 5. They can first try the game for free by downloading and registering the game on the publisher's website. This version comes with five free matches and the ability to keep playing up to three matches per day. The paid version removes the daily restriction. Both versions require an Internet connection.
