Total! (Germany)
Konami hat sei grandioses ISS 64 also noch weiter verbessert und mit einigen interessanten Neuerungen versehen, die sicherlich auch Besitzer des Originals überzeugen werden. Wer noch kein Fußball-Spiel für sein Nintendo64 besitzt, sollte unbedingt zugreifen – es gibt nichts Besseres.
Consoles Plus
La version Playstation est peut-être plus aboutie, mais cette version N64 est excellente.
Super Play
Det är en smaksak om man väljer att köpa International Superstar Soccer '98 eller World Cup '98. Electronic Arts spel innehåller ju alla riktiga spelare och dessutom det riktiga VM 1998, medan Konamis alternativ har mer komplett strategihantering, fler spelfinesser och större realism. Men i slutändan är det ändå spelkänslan som räknas, och där går det inte att säga vilket spel som är bäst av International Superstar Soccer '98 och World Cup '98. Det är upp till var och en att avgöra.
International Superstar Soccer '98 replaces ISS64 as my all-time favorite soccer game. While World Cup beats it in presentation, graphics and sound, ISS plays just like a good soccer game should. The control is impeccable, the AI smart, and everything feels just right. Well, not everything. I think it's about time Konami realized that a soccer game isn't complete without an official license. A picture of Valdeerrama and three arenas is just not the same as having the real teams and players. If you already own ISS64, see if you find a trade-in deal to get your hands on the new one, otherwise, the amount of additions is not quite enough to warrant purchase of the sequel.
Si vous ne possédez pas encore une version antérieure d'ISS et que vous aimez les simulations sportives, procurez vous le cru '98 les yeux fermés. En revanche, les modifications apportées ne justifient pas son achat par les possesseurs d'ISS 64, sauf si vous êtes un fou furieux de jeu de foot.
Game Play 64
Bref, si la ludothèque de votre Nintendo 64 ne doit compter qu'un seul jeu de football, c'est bien celui-là !
All Game Guide
International Superstar Soccer '98 is much like your typical yearly sports update, except players and teams don't need to be updated since they aren't real. Instead, the game tries to appease hardcore soccer fans with many small changes, including better intelligence, more teams, much-improved sound, and new options. Casual soccer fans don't need to purchase this update, but die-hards may want to rent it first to see if offers enough improvements for their tastes.
Power Unlimited
Het eindcijfer van ISS 98 had met wat meer extra's (die World Cup 98 bijvoorbeeld wel heeft) nog hoger uit kunnen vallen. Desondanks heeft Konami weer een heerlijk voetbalspel gefabriceerd, waarvoor we helaas nog tot de herfstperiode geduld zullen moeten opbrengen.
Nintendo Power Magazine
Soccer fans and sports gamers should check this one out. the play is intuitive and realistic. the improved AI is very good and the game is a real challenge.Lack of a FIFA license takes away from the sim feel.
