Micro 7 (Jun, 1984)
Le Commodore 64 possède de très bonnes capacités graphiques et sonores. Ces qualités en font l'une des machines adaptées aux animations complexes et en particulier aux simulations. C'est un des tous premiers programmes où cette machine s'exprime à fond.

Πρόκειται για μια πολύ ρεαλιστική προσομοίωση ποδοσφαιρικού παιχνιδιού, που τρέχει στον Commodore-64 και σας δίνει τη δυνατότητα να παίξετε με κάποιο φίλο σας ή με τον υπολογιστή ένα συναρπαστικό αγώνα.
Commodore User (Jan, 1984)
You must have know there must be something better than blow-football or Subbuteo - well, it's arrived. Commodore's Soccer is no less than a brilliant game with brilliant use of graphics, colour and remarkable player maneuverability.
The quality of the game is best summed up by saying that it gets even the cynics who have 'seen it all', playing, and I think it will prove highly addictive.
The game plays well as having outstanding graphics - passing and shooting require considerable skill and it is possible to construct some quite complex moves.
This was the first good computer footy game. Originally coded by Andrew Spencer (of International Basketball infamy) and produced on cartridge for the C64. CRL managed a bit of a Championship run with the game by bringing it out on cassette for the first time. If you own a C64 you really shouldn't be without it.

[Re-release] Despite a few minor faults, it's still the quickest and playable football game on the C64.

Das fünf Jahe alte Modul wird leider nicht mehr vom Hersteller Commodore vertrieben. Bei vielen Händlern gibt es aber noch Restposten. Wer etwas Glück hat, kann das Modul für 30 bis 40 Mark erstehen. Es wäre schön, wenn eine Firma diese Software-Perle bald wiederveröffentlichen würde.

This is the best game Commodore has come out with to date. The most outstanding thing about this animated soccer simulation, is the smooth and natural way that control passes from player to player without the conscious effort and awkward joystick manipulation required by most other "team sport" simulations (a couple of baseball games from last issue come to mind) after a few minutes, it seems like the computer just knows what you want to do. Fast action, great graphics, a joy to play.

Free kicks, corners, throw-ins and goal kicks, they're all here in a game that gets more realistic and fund to play the more skillful you become.
[Round-up] The funny thing is, even with today's high programming standards and the high level that consumers expect to find of today's software, it's still one of the best you can get on the 64.

Nevertheless, International Soccer is fun to play, especially against a human opponent. The game deserves a good grade because it's the best we have - right now.
Press Play On Tape (Oct 04, 2020)
Ik denk dat jongeren die geen geschiedenis hebben met dit spel er ook niet heel veel mee gaan hebben. Daarom geef ik de game een wat lagere waardering dan ik destijds zou hebben gedaan. Maar ken je deze game nog van vroeger, dan blijft het leuk om af en toe weer even een nostalgisch potje te spelen. Zeker een mijlpaal in de geschiedenis van digitale voetbalspelletjes.
64'er (Dec, 1988)
Grafik und Animation sind, wie der Spielaufbau, recht einfach. Die Figuren sind schlecht animiert, ihre Bewegungen grob und eckig. Sound gibt es fast gar keinen. Gelegentlich ist der Pfiff des Schiedsrichters zu vernehmen, Musik nie. Der Torschrei der Zuschauer klingt eher wie eine startende Rakete, aber darauf kommt es bei diesem Spiel nicht an. „International Soccer“ ist ein leicht verständliches Spiel ohne Neuerungen, das im Zwei-Spieler-Modus eine Menge Spaß machen kann.
