never play the original games, so i cant compare them, and i got this game for free tho.
first time i open the game, i was surprised there is no turtorial or training section, this is not an ordinary sports like soccer or football that anyone knows the basic.
so i select the quick match and decide to see how it plays.
the controls are simple, you only need one button and 4 direction button when playing a match.
press action button for short pass and hold action button for lob pass, anyway the shoot button and pass button are same, so its pretty hard to score at the first time, but then you will realize that you can kick the goalkeeper ♥♥♥, so you can score easily. and the pass are pretty hard when you first time playing it.
the ai are too easy, you can score easily.
there are some way to make some score. first, shoot the ball to the goal, just like soccer. second, bounce the ball to the "pinball like" thing and stars. the last one, you just need to knockout your enemy, it gives you plenty of score.
the graphic are okay, but the animation is funny (in a bad way)
the music and sound are good, nothing bad in here. oh and that "ice cream" sound is funny (in a good way, of course)
the major problem in this game are there is no online multiplayer, i think online multiplayer would be great in this game.
afterall, this game is great, its worth to play
but it is worth $9.99? nope, if they add some online multiplayer mode, buy it at a full price, if they dont, just grab some free copy like me or wait for discount
(sorry for my bad english)
