1001 Video Games
The Amiga version of Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe
appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die
by General Editor Tony Mott.
The Genesis port is a very quiet port, a lot of sound effects have been left out. The MegaDrive version that went out in Japan had silver and gold teams rather than red and blue.
