About This Game

Speedball 2 HD is a modern reincarnation on the classic, futuristic cyberpunk sports game Speedball, originally developed by the Bitmap Brothers and first released for the Atari ST in 1990.

The winner of the matches secures supremacy over the city.

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

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.

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!

Surprisingly, not bad. Plays smoothly and has all the charm of the original. The additional leagues and seasons add a nice touch and the management aspect of the game is still quite enjoyable without being over complicated.

My major complaint would be too much importance placed on the injuring of opposition to score. It always fristrated me when I lost one of my best players in the original and on top of that the opposition gets their goal score from it. Always seemed too major a penalty and this version has taken it up another notch. Disappointing but I'm finding I'm injuring my opposition much more than they're injuring me anyway.

The inclusion of online multiplayer would have made me a very happy fan but can't have everything I guess. Bitmap Brothers please take note though, based on the reviews and the feedback people obviously want it. Please deliver!

Preamble - I was an avid Amiga owner and at the time a fan of pretty much anything involving Renegade or Bitmap Brothers.

This? This is a missed opportunity.

It's the laziest port I could possibly imagine. The original parts of the port - the new character models and the stadium graphics are the kind of quality you would expect to see from work experience placements, not a decent studio. There has been no attempt whatsoever to update the game with modern effects, playstyles or really much of anything over the original game save a couple of powerups.

So it's not a new or expanded game; it's a faithful conversion of the original, right?

Well, no. It's not a very faithful or interesting remake either. The parts retained from the old amiga game appear to be a few faces and still shots (like the winning/losing graphics and the team portraits) which have either been resized and given the blur treatment, or traced very horribly. Worse, these scaled up and blurred originals contrast garishly with the new player graphics and other elements, making the whole thing seem like a poorly stitched-together hack job.

The gameplay is at least loosely faithful to the original, meaning that the players are feel hard to control at first (a fair complaint to level at the original and one that sadly hasn't been improved), but they've actually managed to make the original - which gets better with practice - worse, in that it feels very floaty and unpredictable off of the ball, and simple things like catches that would at least act consistently in the 'miggy version are almost impossible to pull off as the timing on performing a catch and/or a slide seems way off.

I would've hoped - since they were departing from a flat conversion by so much - they would've taken the extra mile and applied more interesting effects on the player field, and actually made a smoother analog-friendly movement and control scheme (GASP! Seperate out catch, throw and tackle buttons! Put aftertouch on the triggers or bumpers! ZOUNDS!) to actually play to the strengths of this PC platform rather than bringing all the problems of having to cater to a userbase mostly having one button joysticks.

Eh, too much work it seems.

So... Graphics? Miss. Gameplay? Miss. Sounds? Well, they nicked a bunch of the original ones but chucked some other stock effects in there so I'm going with miss. The gym interface is slightly better I guess. Hard to screw that up with a mouse you would think.

Don't bother. Play the original on an emulator instead. You'll get a more consistent and coherent experience, and if you take a moment to scale the emulator surface at least everything will look equally stretched and blurred.
