Awesome Soccer reviewed at OutOfEight PC Game Reviews

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

Awesome Soccer has been reviewed at OutOfEight PC Game Reviews (where, unsurprisingly, the maximum score awarded is 8).  We scored a slightly dissapointing 5/8, with the reviewer citing the control system’s simplicity as an area for improvement.  Reading between the lines, the cross/lob function kept accidentally being pressed to his chagrin.  Here’s the summary:

The Good: Simple controls make it easy to bend shots, many teams with real players, custom tournaments, formation and team editors

The Not So Good: Terribly imprecise one-button controls are too simplistic

Awesome Soccer Reviewed in CaptainD’s Gaming Blog…

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Awesome Soccer has been reviewed over at CaptainD’s Gaming Blog, scoring a very favourable 7/10.  Here are some of the review highlights:

“Overall Awesome Soccer is a simple but very enjoyable game…..the vital fun factor is definitely there and the game’s charm mainly lies in its complete accessibility right from the first time you play it. Don’t be fooled though – while it’s simple to play, mastering it completely is going to take you quite some time!”

“For the quality of game and length of gameplay you can expect from it, the price of $14.95 is very reasonable.”

“Awesome Soccer by Red27 Studios is a no frills soccer (football) game that focuses on simple and deep gameplay. Awesome Soccer immediately reminds one of the classic Sensible World of Soccer. Awesome soccer has a simplified control system where you move with the keyboard and only have one button to execute all your passing, shooting, slide tackling, etc. There is also an aftertouch system that allows you to put “swerve” on your shots (another similarity to Sensible World of Soccer). Luckily for Awesome Soccer, it’s visuals are not a decade old. (more…)
