Fast, furious, involving - GREAT! That's Kick Off 2... on the Amiga. On the PC it's somewhat fast... and well... that's basically it. Everything that made this game the best football game on the Amiga was left out on the PC. On first sight it seems to be there, but then the handling is just not quite the same... The slight border was crossed and now you will just run past the ball if you're one pixel too far away, however you can count on knocking the ball away when you just wanted to run around it. You can pretty much forget about the kind of handling the Kick Off series introduced back in its Amiga days... it was perfected later on in the Sensible Soccer series - however pretty messed up here in its PC version. Also the AI is pretty stupid. On the one hand you have your own teammates madly kicking the ball back into the direction of your own goal as well as spinning around for no obvious reason. Fortunately the players in the computer's team do the same kind of stuff as well, so that makes up for it.

Die Kick Off Reihe war schon der Burner, mit dem nachfolger GOAL! haben die meines erachtens nach EA herausgefordert und siehe da die FIFA Reihe wurde zum leben erweckt!

Na ja, Goal ist ja von einer anderen Firma... gleiches Team, aber andere Firma. Kick Off 3 dagegen hat nichts und niemanden "herausgefordert" ;)
