Red Card ist schnell, adrenalinhaltig und vor allem zu zweit ein Garant für heiße Fußballschlachten. Midway vermittelt ein packendes, schnörkelloses Spielgefühl, das trotz all der übertriebenen Dribblings, Karate-Fouls und Zeitlupen-Schüsse noch genug Raum für taktisches Vorgehen und schönen Spielaufbau lässt. Hätte man in Sachen Kollisonsabfrage und Torwart-KI noch etwas mehr Feintuning angesetzt und beim Abschluss mehr Vielfalt geboten, wäre Red Card auch im Einzelspieler-Modus locker in Award-Nähe gekommen. So bleibt ein sehr gutes Fußballspiel mit kleinen Tücken, das zwar bei weitem nicht an die Spieltiefe eines Pro Evolution Soccer rankommt, aber den Arcade-Soccer-Thron auf der PS2 erstürmt und ISS2 sowie FIFA WM 2002 locker hinter sich lässt - für Einsteiger und Profis gleichermaßen zu empfehlen!
A good, fun, solid sports title which even those who are non soccer fans like me can enjoy. With a variety of options, unlockable teams, and simple to pick up gameplay … this one definitely deserves a chance in your PS2 collection.
Un excellent défouloir que l'on soit fan de foot ou nom. Le principe n'est pas des plus fins mais s'avère particulièrement amusant même si le tout perd rapidement de son intérêt, un titre à découvrir en tous les cas.
Despite the gripes I had with the game, they're minor in contrast to the decent qualities sported by RedCard. It's easy to pick up and play, somewhat difficult to master, and is loads of fun to play either by yourself or with a friend. RedCard is not going to give EA's FIFA games a run for the money, but it's not designed to do that. RedCard set out to be an enjoyable, slightly over the top soccer game, and on that front it's a success.
RedCard Soccer 2003 is a good start for Midway's newest foray into the world of arcade sports. It goes into slightly more realistic territory without sacrificing the fun, easy-to-learn gameplay that most of Midway's sports games possess. Soccer fans looking for something a little more lighthearted would do well to check this one out.
Gaming Target
While the commentary is both accurate and complete, the two announcers in the game don’t deliver what most might expect in terms of Midway fashion. Yes, the calls are professional and what not, but the missing elements of jokes, sarcasm, and quips don’t add up. This makes the game feel even more like a run of the mill soccer title, the direction that Midway doesn’t want their franchises traveling.
Game Revolution
While some fans may be disappointed by the fact that this game is grounded in reality and not completely insane, those with a finer palette will enjoy RedCard's uniquely violent and rewarding gameplay. If this game had more options, modes, customization, and better licensing, it might be one of the best soccer games on the market.
Wer Arcade-Sportspiele mag und häufig gegen Freunde spielt, der kann bei diesem Titel beruhigt zugreifen. Schnelles Gameplay, gute Grafik und spektakuläre Szenen am laufenden Band heben RedCard 20-03 aus der Masse der Sportspiele hervor und sorgen trotz einiger Schwächen für viel Kurzweil.
PSX Extreme
Red Card 20-03 is somewhat like a double-edged sword. On one side, there are a few nice additions to the sport, such as the Matrix-like finishers and the allowance of tackling and kicking. Furthermore, the gameplay and controls are both solid and well-oriented. But on the other side, the game just doesn't bring a presence that's extreme enough to really be a full-fledged rule-breaker. If Red Card 20-03 boasted some sort of on-fire mode, or something else to further accent the unrealistic play, maybe the game would be a bit better. In a nutshell, Red Card doesn't really know what it wants to be: a simulation or a rule-breaker.
The schizophrenic hybrid brother of FIFA World Cup and Soccer Slam, RedCard 20-03 is a solid if not middle of the road game. If you enjoy futbol more than anyone else in your neighborhood, however, and absolutely need to have every game on the market, you could do a lot worse. Not realistic enough for the hardcore EA crowd and not outrageous enough for fans of Midway's previous efforts, we'd recommend this one for rental with the option to buy.
Operation Sports
If you are looking for some soccer action but are not a serious soccer fan, RCS may be the game for you. I enjoyed playing the game but the re-playability with only one player is limited, unless you really like the challenge of unlocking teams and stadiums. In some ways it is surprisingly soccer like and for me this made the game more fun, for others who really like the arcade style game they may be somewhat disappointed.
