However, if you take all of these points into consideration, what shines through like a beacon is the program's massive potential. If you're prepared to put a little more time than usual into mastering the complex control method, then patience will reap huge rewards - and I, for one, can hardly wait for I play: 3D Soccer 2.

Over the long term the lack of tactical options and a comprehensive league, plus the ease with which you can win the cup (just enter two teams), may limit single-player lastability. However as a two-player game 3D Soccer finally approaches the fun of Amiga Kick Off with a very different game style.

Players seem lifelike and solid, it's all in real 3D and you can alter the level of detail to speed up the game. All in all, it's a very nice offering which is just a tad less playable than some. Goggle at those graphics though.
AmigaAmiga Action (Jul, 1991)
Watching somebody else play this game I must admit to becoming very excited. Technically, it cannot be faulted with smooth 3D update and convincing player animations. What lets it down is the gameplay. The perspective makes it difficult to tell who's in possession and the game becomes confusing. Another serious problem is the omission of a league or cup competition. If you're after the ultimate football sim, look no further than Kick Off 2. It's leagues ahead of this in terms of playability.

This game only just fails to achieve what it sets out to do (and designing a football game handled from the player's perspective is a tall order). It's a pitch worth peeking at even though the graphics came close to scoring an own goal.

So ist 3D-Soccer ein Spiel, dem es an Ideen nicht mangelt. Die technische Ausführung jedoch läßt Wünsche offen. Das Problem ist wohl, daß sich Simulmondo zuviel vorgenommen und dabei der Spielbarkeit des Programms zu wenig Beachtung geschenkt hat. Schade um ein Game, das in den Ansätzen vielversprechend, in der Realisierung jedoch nur durchschnittlich ist. Dennoch, über ein Update sollte Simulmondo nachdenken.
