Digital Press - Classic Video Games
This game gave me hundreds of hours of fun in the early to mid-eighties. I imagine it plays as well as or better than any other "classic" soccer cart; indeed, the two-player game is more fun than lots of soccer garbage that came out for the NES and SMS. Still, why bother when there are so many superior versions of soccer currently available for the 32-bit systems? Today it's just a nostalgia piece that holds very little play value but lots of fond memories.
The Video Game Critic
Controlling each player is also problematic, since they never want to move out of their assigned zone. Like most "old school" sports games, you can run off one side of the screen and onto the other, but you have no control of the goalie, and the ball is constantly going out of bounds. The non-stop "galloping" sound effects would be more appropriate for a horse racing game. You can set the clock for any length, but I'd recommend the mercifully short five minute option.
