World Cup NES Review - What were they thinking?

by Arnaud Sprenger on Wednesday, August 21, 2002
Just like Antoine Pijnenburg, who is also from the Netherlands, I wonder what they where thinking when they (Taito) created this game. Were they creating a serious game, or a silly game, a parody of soccer? I mean, after you've played it 5 minutes you know two things - one: this game kicks ass, and two: this game has very little to do with soccer. There is'n't even a referee, players pass out on the pitch, you have a (limited amount of) superkicks which leave the field in devastation, and the players look like cartoons. This is not soccer - but that doesn't mean it isn't great fun. Probably one of the best games to play with your friends, and you can even play it with up to four persons with that FourScore device (but who has that?). Rating: 9.5/10
