This is very different to many footy sims that have been released. But despite interesting graphics and some nice features it's still flawed.
Nintendo Power Magazine
Whether you call it football or soccer, it's still the world's most popular sport and every four years the top teams compete for the prestigious World Cup. Now with Nintendo's World Cup for Game Boy, you won't have to wait until 1994. You won't even have to wait until you get home! All the excitement and action is right here. Choose your favorite national team, pick players, challenge a friend with Game Link then pass, dribble and shoot your way to sports history!

Eine technisch erstaunliche Umsetzung: Sieht man einmal von den fehlenden Farben ab, muß man bei der Grafik keine Abstriche gegenüber der NES-Version machen. Die Sprites sind groß, gut auseinanderzuhalten und witzig animiert. Auf die bekannten Makel dieses Spiels trifft man allerdings auch bei der Game-Boy-Version: Der Spielablauf ist sehr actionlastig und artet nicht gerade in eine sonderlich anspruchsvolle Sportsimulation aus. Außerdem ist das Gekicke ziemlich unübersichtlich: Ihr seht jeweils nur einen sehr kleinen Ausschnitt des gesamten Spielfelds, der zwar munter gescrollt wird, aber für umsichtige Pässe zu knapp bemessen ist.
