The Games Machine (UK) (Feb, 1990)
Most Kick Off owners are very happy with the game; using it with Extra Time should make them ecstatic. Kick Off is now variable in many ways so that its difficulty and gameplay can be tailored to your own preferences, psycho or sedate tactics, bouncy or dead pitch, whatever. Its the perfect complement to Kick Off and should help convert other people to its delights as well as giving hours of even more involving matches to existing users.

For those already in possession of the original, Extra Time is a brilliant addition. The new options alter the game for the better, and it plays incredibly fast. The best just got better.
Amiga Computing (Apr, 1990)
Although most of these improvements can be turned off, doing so would mean that you had wasted your money. To be honest, if you have completely mastered the original game, and are looking for a real challenge, then Extra Time is it. Otherwise, stick to Kick Off, because beginners are heading for hours of fruitless frustration.
Amiga Format (Feb, 1990)
What a great idea all these variations are. What a shame they are a total waste of time. The strength meter just does not work as an idea, the different pitches have little effect and the new tactics make little difference. It is almost like you can take all the good bits out of Kick Off and play a very average football game. Don't bother wit it.
Zzap! (Feb, 1990)
Overall, Extra Time does not offer as many options as we had hoped for but the ball control options do change the nature of the game to a more skilful one, putting an extra lease of life into a footy classic.
