Power Unlimited
Voetbalachtig Spel waarin alle remmen los gaan: tegenstanders onthoofden, aan een spies rijgen, etc is 'dood' normaal. Gooi je de bal niet in het doel dan is het wel iemands hoofd. Een wreed en hard spel met helaas soms wel wat onoverzichtelijke graphics.

Violence, violence and more violence, this is the name of the game in Brutal Football. Upon slapping in your CD you are presented with a rather nice intro sequence of a scientist at work on his football players – but something is wrong. I fiddle with the volume, no joy. Are the audio leads properly set up, yes. So what is going on? For the intro sequence Millennium have left out music. This may be unimportant, but games on the CD32 should really use its potential for top quality music.

Amiga Format
A sideways-scrolling orgy of tongue-in-cheek, bone-crunching, limb-tearing violence, Brutal Football is one heck of a rumble. The idea is to score more goals than your opponent. And if you inflict some damage upon them along the way then hey, so much the better. Pick-ups abound – the hare is useful, it gives you a Linford Christiean (can you say that?) turn of pace.

Le plus impressionnant est sans conteste la musique qui accompagne le jeu. D'une durée équivalant à un match entier, elle changera de thèmes grâce à de parfaites transitions, dans un style plutôt hard que les mélomanes retiendront. Enfin une version CD-32 qui en a, de l'intérêt, qu'est-ce que vous alliez imaginer.

Amiga Joker
Die Diskversion dieser Mischung aus herkömmlicher Lederei-Action und nackter Gewalt haben wir unter dem Titel "Crazy Sports Football" getestet – so wird auch hier wieder die offizielle deutsche Ausführung heißen. Aber damit genug der Förmlichkeiten, das Schlachtfeld ruft: Bis zu acht Spieler übernehmen jeweils ein siebenköpfiges Barbarenteam, um sich im Einzelmatch, während einer Ligarunde oder im Rahmen eines Pokalwettbewerbes zu duellieren; Fehlende Mitstreiter ersetzt der Rechner, Spielregeln im üblichen Sinn existieren dabei praktisch nicht.

Digital Press - Classic Video Games
Even though the graphics are weak, the sound is even worse. Mere words do nothing to describe the atrocious music that plays during the game. A grinding mix of 80's heavy metal and awful classical, this is one of the worst soundtracks you'll ever encounter in a video game. Granted it can be turned off, but then you're left with nothing but NES-styled sound effects that do little to enhance the experience. Though the presentation leaves a bit to be desired, this one is still a blast to play, especially with a friend. Punching and stabbing his/her entire team is priceless and will surely start a few arguments. It's a very competitive game and it's obviously programmed to be so. Memorable moments are sure to ensue and make this one a worthy addition to a CD32 library.
