Mean Machines (Nov, 1991)
The world's finest soccer game finally arrives on the Master System... and it's utterly, utterly superb. It's got exactly the same graphics, gameplay and game logic that made the Amiga version one of the greatest games ever written. The controls are superb, although those new to Kick Off might find them a bit strange at first because the ball doesn't stick to your feet like in other football games. Instead you "run" with the ball. It might sound weird, but believe me, once you master it you won't believe the moves you can get your players to pull off! The computer logic is simply brilliant, with your team seeming to read your mind! When you pass there's always another player running onto the ball, keeping play going and making it possible to string together complex, sweeping moves! The computer teams are very intelligent, and it takes an awful lot of practice before you can consistently beat them!
Incredible though it may seem, Super Kick Off on the Master System is one of the best versions of this all-time classic you'll ever see! Quite how the programmers have stuffed this inside Sega's 8-bit machine I don't know, but believe me, it's utterly brill! The manic pace and playability of the Amiga original has been faithfully recreated, and at first glance you'd swear blind you were playing on a 16-bit machine! With just about every feature of the original built in, this is a dream come true for MS-owning soccer freaks across the land. Buy it or stay left on the touchline as everybody else latches onto a good thing and enjoys top-notch entertainment on Sega's evergreen machine!
Sega Force (UK) (Jan, 1992)
A good, comprehensive footy game, then, fast and highly playable. It's not a perfect miracle, the Mega Drive still has room to do better restoring some of the original's subtlety, but it's amazing for 8-bit and well worth buying even for non footy fans (ie Arsenal supporters!).
Video Games (Feb, 1992)
Kick Off ist die realistischste und zugleich schwierigste Fußballsimulation auf dem Master System. Alleine den Ball einigermaßen zu kontrollieren stellt ein ausgewachsenes Problem dar (...) Technisch ist das Modul gelungen. Die Spieler wetzeln recht flott und geschmeidig über den Bildschirm ohne durch Flackern oder Ruckeln gebremst zu werden. Alles in allem eine gute Umsetzung und zugleich das beste Fußballspiel auf dem Master System.
Leider präsentiert sich Super Kick Off von der spielerischen Seite her eher mäßig. So ist die Steuerung lange nicht so präzise wie beispielsweise beim Amiga. Die Computer-Gegner spielen schwach, nur die Torhüter (auf beiden Seiten) sind (zu) stark. Zu guter Letzt wird das Scrolling sehr langsam, befinden sich nur wenige Sprites gleichzeitig auf dem Screen oder Spieler bzw. Ball verschwinden kurzfristig. Das alte Master-System-Leiden eben.

Semplicemente il peggior gioco di calcio che io abbia mai giocato.
Play Time (Mar, 1992)
Einstellungsvielfalt, Spielvarianten und Animation der Spieler sind meiner Meinung nach gut gelungen. Der wichtigste Punkt aber, das eigentliche Spiel, wurde leider doch ziemlich vernachlässigt.
