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. A brutal mix of handball and ice hockey placed at break-neck pace. Now Tower Studios, Vivid Games and The Bitmap Brothers have created a glorious fusion of classic gameplay and modern technology to launch this game into the 21st century.

Game Description

In 2326, rival gangs formed an ultra-violent street sports league called Speedball to settle their deadly disputes. Two teams face each other in bloody battles for a steel ball: Nine on nine – in an all-out rush on the opponents’ goal. Almost any malicious move is permitted. 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

I had fun playing this but there is one glaring issue that reduced my enjoyment.

When you get to division 1 the gulf between the teams you play in the league and the teams you are forced to play in the intergalactic cup is huge. You're forced into a cycle of winning 7 really easy games against 3 star teams and then getting ♥♥♥♥♥ by a 5 star team in the first round of the cup which injures your players.

The game desperately needs another league between Div1 and the intergalactic cup/champion's league ♥♥♥♥-a-thon.

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!

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.
