As far as football strategy games go there are none better for the HTC One X than the excellent Football Manager 2012 Handheld.

Players are given a season objective at the start of the game and if they achieve this their contract may be extended, fail and they may be shown the door. Expectations of the board are realistic so you are not expected to avoid relegation with Manchester United or win the league with Norwich City. This realism extends to transfer dealings where you can search the world for player to compliment you squad. This title is very addictive and it zips along at a very quick pace for a mobile game. The developers have omitted some aspects of the main game on this title to help the game to deliver optimum performance. Things like backroom staff and reserve squads are not accessible but this leaves the player with the more important task of managing the first team squad.
