GameSpy (Oct 06, 2002)
Slam's single-player mode is solid, but its multiplay is where the thing really shines. GameCubists have been partying with this one since the spring and now it's the Xboxers turn. The quick games, fast action, and varied tournament modes are the perfect components of a title that's made for trash talking. If the multiplay has one drawback -- and this is an odd one -- it's that it makes the single-player game seem a bit lackluster by comparison. I was originally sold on Slam by its single-player game. I thought it was tight and fun, but after going head-to-head against live competition, the solo three-on-three action loses some of its luster.

Already a hit on the GameCube, Sega’s Soccer Slam takes its rough-and-tumble gameplay to the Xbox arena. Those who were always tempted by sports games but never had the patience for endless menus and realistic nitpickings will find Soccer Slam to be an addictive, fast-paced blast. Even punters of the GameCube version will find a host of new options in this Xbox incarnation most notably extra players and multiplayer games.

GameSpot (Sep 04, 2002)
Sega Soccer Slam was a highly entertaining game when it first appeared on the GameCube, and the extras that Sega has added to the Xbox version make it even better. The expanded lineup of characters and the few additional modes of play unquestionably help prolong the life of the game. Xbox owners interested in a fast-paced, funny sports game with plenty of personality and deceptively deep gameplay shouldn't think twice about picking up Soccer Slam.

Auch auf der Xbox, die der GameCube-Fassung optisch nur hauchdünn unterlegen ist, bietet Sega Soccer Slam Arcade-Fußball pur: Brodelnde Stadien, spektakuläre Schüsse und abgefahrene Comic-Charaktere. Es macht einfach Spaß, sich den Ball mit akrobatischen Fallrückziehern um die Ohren zu jagen, oder den Gegner kurz vor dem Torschuss mit einer saftigen Ohrfeige zu stoppen. Und weil trotz der Power,- Killer- und Spotlightschüsse auch konventionelle Taktiken wie schnelle Pässe und gute Dribblings zum Torerfolg führen, ist Segas Kick weit mehr als eine einseitige Effekt-Hascherei. Zwar kann der Einzelspieler-Modus trotz freispielbarer Goodies und gelungener KI nicht langfristig fesseln, aber dafür glüht der Rasen im Mehrspieler-Modus vom Anstoß bis zum Abpfiff!

Sega Soccer Slam has a number of different play modes. Practice Mode contains a number of different drills that will teach you the ins and outs of the game. In Tourney Mode, each team plays fifteen games and the team with the best record at the end wins the Tourney Championship. Challenge Mode allows you to choose three players from any team to compete in a string of four games. Winning all four games will unlock extra characters. Quest Mode is perhaps the most intriguing. You’ll begin by choosing a team, each of which has different strengths and weaknesses. The catch, though, is that you only actually control one player. The other players must be controlled by other people or by the computer. This makes for a much different experience and is a nice change of pace from the other modes.

Sega Soccer Slam ist eines der ganz großen Funspiele. Arcade Spaß pur dank tollem Gameplay und witziger Comicgrafik. Wer diesen Hit ausschließlich in guter Gesellschaft spielen möchte, darf die Wertung ruhig noch großzügig aufrunden.

IGN (Aug 21, 2002)
Soccer Slam features five basic game modes: Arcade, Quest, Challenge, Tourney, and Practice. Quest mode is the center of the single-player experience where you will attempt to beat opposing teams in a set of matches and bonus challenges, similar to Sega's own Virtua Tennis. You'll have your pick of six multinational teams at the start, with three more unlockable teams. Light your fire with team El Fuego, storm the field with Tsunami, spark up your life with Volta, or go for Toxic, Spirit, or Subzero. The choice is yours. Each team is comprised of three individual players plus a generic goalie.

Still, you'll have a lot of fun with it when you first get your hands on it, and even those of you who just blew £40 on Pro Evolution Soccer 2 will find a home for its unique blend of footy and fighting. Better than Midway's RedCard, and more violent than the average ice hockey game, Sega Soccer Slam is pure arcade fun, albeit not very long-lived.

Alles in allem ein echter Hit, den es mittlerweile schon für lau zu haben gibt. Nur Einzelspieler werden wohl auf Dauer nicht auf ihre Kosten kommen, wer aber des öfteren ein volles Haus hat und seine Freunde an die Joypads der Xbox locken kann, macht keinen Fehler mit einem Kauf dieses Spiels.

Sega Soccer Slam nos ofrece un producto típicamente Sega, de aspecto vistoso y colorido, con una aproximación netamente arcade en su desarrollo y jugabilidad; con la suficiente variedad como para engancharte durante algún tiempo. Por desgracia ocurre lo que también es habitual en juegos de Sega, longevidad reducida. Sega Soccer Slam es divertido, mucho, y especialmente con amigos (cuantos más mejor), pero la verdad es que si juegas solo te va a durar más bien poco. En apenas una semana habrás destripado todo su contenido fundiendo incontables porterías. Esto hubiera sido fácilmente solucionable con unos modos más largos y profundos de ligas, copas y demás parafernalia, que deberían venir adornados con una cantidad mucho más larga de equipos y estadios. No olvidemos la profundidad jugable, base de la duración de un juego deportivo, que se encuentra algo mermada si lo comparamos con joyas como PES, NBA 2K o Virtua Tennis.

As a soccer version of Hitz, Soccer Slam is not a must-buy for everyone. I highly recommend it as a rental, especially if you have a lot of friends coming over, since it is a great multiplayer game. The Quest, Arcade and Challenge modes are good, so it's not like you'd be bored playing the game by yourself. As with all sports game though, it is more fun to play against a real-life opponent than it is to play against the computer. To be safe, rent this one before making a final decision on whether or not you should purchase it.

JeuxActu (Oct 11, 2002)
Sega Soccer Slam est une vraie réussite, autant du point de vue technique qu’esthétique. Les modes de jeu sont nombreux, et l’on y trouve même une espèce de "World Tour" à la Virtua Tennis. Sachant qu’il est possible d’y jouer jusqu’à 4 en même temps, tout fan d’action et de foot devrait se laisser tenter par ce jeu hors normes.

Jeuxvideo.com (Oct 25, 2002)
Un titre sympathique et sans prise de tête... C'est un peu du plug'n play à la Microsoft, on lance une partie et rapidement on s'éclate, grâce à une excellente ergonomie et un gameplay à la fois rapide, technique et très accessible. Idéal pour les soirées multijoueur, puisque c'est là que Soccer Slam s'avère le plus fun.

Game Critics (Jun 05, 2002)
Sega has created an anomaly in the paradigm with Sega Soccer Slam. Gamers looking for flash will notice this title from the moment they see the disc case. Right off the bat, Soccer Slam presents itself as something different from the traditional soccer videogame. In the clearest sense, Soccer Slam is an extreme take on the sport, focusing on competition and personalities rather than authentic re-creation.

X-Power (Nov 17, 2002)
Qua grahpics, geluid, presentatie en gameplay is het spel gewoon fantastisch. Maar als je niet het soort persoon bent die zich dagen of weken met een arcade spel kan bezighouden, dan zoek je misschien best elders vertier. Toch is dit spel een aanrader, en iedereen die zoekt naar een leuk multiplayer game zal zijn gading zeker vinden in Sega Soccer Slam.
