Addictive Football

Developer - Addictive 247

“It’s football not soccer!” proclaims the message at the start of the game. Only thing is, it’s not. While this top-down five-a-side soccer sim does provide some glimmers of entertainment thanks to its end-to-end, all-out attacking gameplay, it’s simply too riddled with shortfalls to be able to recommend.

For starters, the inadequate control system lacks a “change player” key, meaning you’re left at the mercy of the auto-change function, which often leaves you well off the pace. What’s more, all the players are clones, collision detection is suspect and the four playing surfaces (grass, astro, indoors and concrete) seem virtually identical in all but appearance.
