You see all those negative reviews? Those are from people who grew up with Speedball 2 and hate this HD remake. I never played the original. So you could say I'm not bias and I'm not looking at this HD with rose tinted nostalgia glasses.

This game is good. It's fun once you get the hang of it. The sprites look kinda bad but it doesn't take away from the game in any way. If you used to play this game as a kid than maybe it will, but if you haven't than it doesn't change anything.

I haven't noticed any frame rate issues or weird resolution issues either. The game runs fine. Again if you've never played the original don't be afraid of this HD remake, it's perfectly fine it's just people complaining due to nostalgia...

Speedball 2 HD...Hmm, where to start? Lets go back to yonder days when I was much much younger than I am now, the mid 90s (Speedball came out in 1988 and 1990 (2) but was re-released for 95/98 in a multipack) and I remember spending many an hour running around with my cyberpunk steroidal war bears beating up the enemy for ball possession and winning the majority of my games purely by knocking out enemy team members (which gives you as many points as scoring a goal might I add) and screaming at my goal keeper to stop being a poof. Ahhh, good times.

Fast forward to today and Speedball 2 HD is a re-release of the 1988 cult classic set in the future of a bloodbowl sport which is a combination of lacrosse, american football and cage fighting. It's exactly like the original (as far as I can remember) and I have already spent a few hours knocking out the enemy and scoring obscene goals. It's such a good remake it has all of it's warts and boils with the buggy player swapping whenever the ball is perfectly between three of your players causing it to bounce all over the place. But all that is forgotten when you get your players hip dancing and kneesliding from scoring or knocking out the enemy players.

Brutality aside, this is classic game that is challenging, requires a little thought on how you move around and a lot of keyboards from smashing the spacebar. The challenging enemy players can range from "screwdrivers in their heads" stupid to "holy hell I haven't even touched the ball and it's already half time". Great to pick up for a quick laugh then put back down. I can imagine friendships being broken when this game is played on the LAN!

After playing it for 7 hours, I can say this:

Difficulty:
Positive: The difficulty can be hard or easy base on your and opponents team statistics
Negative: At the begging of single Career AI is too easy it gets harder but after you upgrade your team some matches are ridiculously easy with no Challenge.

Gameplay:
Positive: Character controls feels smoothly, you can play local multiplayer also a single player career mod .
Negative: The game change your active character too jerky sometimes rapidly and also gives you the control of goalkeeper every unexpected time, no online multiplayer also you need to unlock stages and teams to play them in local multiplayer.

Soundtrack:
Positive: The music and sounds are ok also if you dont like the music just turn it off.
Negative: i dont see anything negative.

Graphics:
Positive: The Graphics are kinda ok.
Negative: Animation is poor.

The reason i recommend it is only because i had a lot of fun playing in local multiplayer.

Games like Speedball 2 should be based around multiplayer in my honest opinion. Fact that Multiplayer for this game is local only takes a lot from it because Ai is not particulary strong. Not playing old Speedball I have no nostalgic memories to influence my review. I think that MP with things like online tournaments, ladders, seasons and decent matchmaking would make this no brainer for most players. I was just not having fun playing vs ai teams. Up to that lack of mini map with random switching of your players is not quite well made and you are often forced to just move in dirrection of opponent with someone outside of map.

To be honest I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this game with online multiplayer but at it is I would recommend it only for old fans of franchise or people who liked old NHL 96 because this game resembled it a lot with the way it was played.

Absolutlety loved the original on the Commodore Amiga (kids of today will be asking... Whats one of them? lol). Still love it today, simple and great fun! Although no vast improvement on graphics or gameplay, I love the simplicity, not something I would pay full price for but I bought it bundled with The Chaos Engine (another Amiga Classic) when it was on sale!

Would love to see an ONLINE MULTIPLAYER option with some online leagues, would be great for esports.

Would be great to see a true next-gen updated version with the graphics and gameplay of FIFA or something similar, and losts of gore!

This is pants... Get the original from an abandonware site and run it in DOSbox. The original creams all over this.

Don't waste your money... It isn't even worth being free.

There is no excuse to make a worse game with today's technologies and knowledge than it was more than 20 years ago! Terrible looking sprites, bad animation, bad ball "physics", terrible controls, could have been a Flash game. Even the original Amiga version had a better feeling!

Argh, conflicted. Thumbs up or thumbs down?

There are good(ish) and bad points to this tarted up version of the 1990s classic.

Good(ish):

It looks OK
It's full of nostalgia
It's playable enough
You can turn your brain off and jusy play

Bad:

Gameplay (and to my mind graphics) are not as good as the Amiga or Atari ST version. This is not forgiveable in 2014.
It's too easy
The ball velocity has been slowed down
Clumsy animation

So why am I still playing it? Because my Amiga mis long dead and as bad a version as this is, it's still as close to the original as I'm going to get.

Marginal thumbs up 5/10

Terrible game! The controls are godawful, I get that it's a remake of a classic, but come on! Fix the controls! Skip this one and play the original. Much better game!

Imagine the original Speedball 2... now imagine it slowed down to a snail's pace, with a choppy framerate, ugly looking sprites and sub-par controller support. That's this game. Avoid at all costs, it's more of an HD ♥♥♥♥-up than an HD remake.

Best for fans of the original. Gameplay is faithful to the Amiga classic, though in modern terms, it can be a bit repetitive.
