I wasn't really impressed with Speedball on the Master System, but this is a completely different kettle of fish. The original game was quite slow and tedious, but even with the bigger play area that the Master System has to cope with, Speedball II manages to retain the same manic pace as the Amiga classic. The graphics are fine. Obviously, the colour and definition aren't quite as smart as the 16-bit versions, but the actual gameplay remains really close to the original. My one gripe is that the player intelligence isn't quite as advanced as the original versions and with no Kick Off-style scanner, passing the ball is made very difficult because you can't really see where your players are. Other than that though, Speedball II remains an excellent sports sim that should appeal to anyone owning a Master System.
Speedball 2 è migliore del capitolo precedente sotto tutti gli aspetti, ma si porta ancora dietro dei difetti che ne diminuiscono la giocabilità. Un titolo comunque da provare soprattutto se avete la possibilità di giocare contro un amico.
