Kick Of 2 is the best football game ever to grace the ST, and if you don't believe me, I'll burst into tears (don't cry for me, Maradonna!). Roll on 1994...
A monstrously stonking arcade style football game with the emphasis on pace and passing. Wondrous in every exciting sense.
What a game! The best football sim just got a whole lot better. Purists won't be able to get enough of the one-touch, choreographed, passing that can split defences in half. Cynics will revel in extra-curricula delights such as professional fouls, time wasting on goal kicks and debilitating opposing teams by constant heavy tackling. Unless programmer Dino Dini
included national anthems, shirt pulling, and Saint 'n' Greavsie, it's hard to imagine how this magical game could be any more authentic.
If you've never played the original Kick Off then you won't realise what you've been missing. Fortunately, the sequel offers a larger variety of options to enhance the original, and if you're a fan of footie games you'd be a fool to miss it.
There are some flaws. There always are. On the Amiga, for some unknown reason, the size of the screen has shrunk (it's now Player Manager size), and on the ST the scrolling is a bit jerky. These are only minor quibbles though, which don't radically affect the highly addictive gameplay.
Sprites are the same as in the Amiga version, small, well animated and fast moving. However, the pitch's markings aren't as clear, the goals are just a few lines rather than a proper graphic, there's no stadium around the pitch and whatever pitch you choose it's always the same two-tone green stripes. Sampled crowd and kick sounds aren't as clear as on the Amiga, but the basic game as a whole stands up very well.
