The Press Says

The Games Machine (UK)
This must be the definitive Spectrum action football game. The graphics are functional rather than superlative, though better defined than the original's. What makes Match Day II such a great game is that it is instantly playable, and the twin-player option adds an extra dimension with team cooperation absolutely necessary. Match Day II is a must.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Despite the lack of colour, the Spectrum version of the game is every bit as compelling, frustrating and enjoyable as the other versions. The characters move around the pitch slightly faster on Spectrum turf than on Amstrad turf, and this makes for a marginally better game. A minor niggle is the fact that it is sometimes difficult to spot your player when there are several others jostling for the ball. Every bit as exciting and as playable as any other version.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
The monochromatic graphics are a bit slow, but the play is the important thing, Brian, and this has it all.
