Where NSS differs, though, is in its participation. You're not just adjusting sliders and watching things take place from afar; whenever your guy is involved in the action, you're put in direct control of them, carrying out various minigames that correspond to activities like shooting and passing.


Throw in off-field activities like gambling, looking after a girlfriend and buying a PSP and it's the almost the perfect marriage of quickplay phone game, football management sim and RPG.
