Power Play (Oct, 1990)
Angesichts dieser brillanten Mega Drive-Umsetzung fällt einem erst richtig auf, wie schlampig die Computer-Versionen von Cyberball ausgefallen sind. Wohl dem, der Segas 16-Bit-Videospiel hat, denn hier wurde die originelle Spielidee glänzend realisiert. Die Grafik ist erstaunlich schnell, doch vor allem die hervorragende Spielbarkeit machen das Modul zu einem Leckerbissen für alle, die sich mit den American Football-Regeln auskennen (wichtige Voraussetzung!). Die vier Schwierigkeitsgrade, der gute Liga-Modus und die Sportschau-mäßige Wiederholung besonders gelungener Spielzüge runden das tadellose Programm ab.
Sega Does (Nov 17, 2016)
Cyberball is a solid addition to any sports video game fan’s Genesis library. Its arcade roots make the game more accessible than a Madden or Montana football title, but the rule changes here may bother some purists. No punting or field goals, thus forcing offenses to score on every possession, puts pressure on defensive play. You won’t find Deflategate suspensions or unsportsmanlike conduct penalties for excessive celebration here, either. Sure, a battery backup and the ability to track and save team and season stats (a la BaseWars for the NES) would have been nice. But what’s important here is that Cyberball plays pretty darned well and is fun to go back to from time to time.
Cyberball is fairly faithful to the coin-op game on which it's based, but the controls do come off a bit sluggish. The field also looks slightly distorted, but the real joy of Cyberball, its game play remains.

With the immense amount of football games available on the Genesis, diehard fans should look elsewhere for their thrills. On the other hand, those wanting to just toss the ball around and maybe smash a few things in the process should give Cyberball a chance. Complete games can be had for peanuts on eBay, and it's a decent enough way to pass an afternoon, provided you don't really have much else to play.
Grafik und Sound bleiben weit hinter den Erwartungen zurück. Der stockende Spielablauf tut ein übriges, um ein spannendes und flüssiges Spiel zu verhindern. Den deutschen Usern - siehe oben - wird dieser Sport-Zwitter kaum Freude bereiten.
