Unintentionally hilarious, but lacking as a serious football game Martin Smith (76) 3.5 Stars3.5 Stars3.5 Stars3.5 Stars3.5 Stars

The game can be player with either keyboard or joystick, although I wouldn't recommend the former option unless you have very dexterous fingers! Gameplay tends to be quick and eventful with many goals even though the maximum length of play for a single match is twelve minutes. PC owners looking for a quick armchair dash across the pitch need look no further. Microprose Soccer is a definite winner.
Definition is very close to the functional clarity of the Amiga/ST, and in EGA graphics mode, so is the colour. Scrolling is reasonable and music/sound effects are a nice try at getting something decent out of the aurally incompetent PC. Keyboard control is a finger-twister but Soccer is as fun on as on any other computer, and is probably the best PC football game around.

Fazit: eine ordentliche Umsetzung. Gute Fußballspiele auf PCs sind ohnehin rar.
Die Grafik wurde, entsprechend der hardwaremäßigen Voraussetzungen der PCs, mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail gezeichnet. Und zwar sowohl beim Indoor- als auch beim Outdoor-Soccer Etwas piepsig, doch trotzdem stimmungsvoll fällt der Sound dieser PC-Konvertierung aus. Besondere Beachtung verdient das sehr flüssige Scrolling, das neben EGA-Besitzern selbstverständlich auch CGA-Fans genießen können. Die Steuerung ist exakt und das Gameplay flüssig. Besonders viel Spaß bereitet der Zwei-Spieler-Mode. Insgesamt gesehen also eine spaßige Angelegenheit, die hoffentlich nicht nur mir viele vergnügte Stunden gebracht hat.
