[Budget re-release] It's violent. It's fun. And it's a challenge. So get it.
If you have a CD 32 and never played Sppedball, you're in for a treat. If you've bought a CD 32, but miss the game, you'll be ecstatic at the new version, If you haven't a CD 32, go an find an original Speedball 2 and play it on your Amiga.
The CD32 version has much improved graphics. The amount of detail and the colours for each team are a lot clearer than they were on the original Amiga version. Thus it's easier to see who is on your team and who the opposing player is. Loading still takes a while and the frame rate hasn't been increased but it's still very playable.
Well to put you out of your misery without
further ado, CD32 Speedball is enhanced, and it hasn't just got a CD quality soundtrack tacked on to it; graphical changes are there too. I was a bit disappointed when the intro ran because it's
exactly the same as ever, but at least the tune has been altered for the better.
Considering Speedball 2's age, the first thing that strikes you when playing is how incredibly well it's aged. Even though they've been only slightly touched-up (oo-er vicar!) the graphics are still nice and crisp, and the gameplay is still challenging and fun
— particularly the two player games (in which I managed to thrash Andy quite convincingly).
Traurig genug also, daß man sich hier kaum über Verbesserungen freuen darf, sondern vielmehr über jedes Feature froh sein muß, das sich gegenüber dem Original nicht verschlechtert hat. Jedoch läuft Speedball 2 auch auf 1200ern mit CD-ROM tadellos, was insofern sehr löblich ist, als die ECS-Versionen die Zusammenarbeit mit AGA-Rechnern ja stets verweigerte. Und so ist dieser Import-Titel trotz seiner englischen Kurzanleitung und sonstiger Macken halt unter dem Strich doch eine Bereicherung für die Silbermine der Amiga-Familie.
