Review of 'Match Day II'

Some people claim this sequel to be better than its predecessor. They are right. But I simply hate the players graphics, and never got used to them. Sure you now can jump and play with your head, or use a backheel move, or defende with your goalkeeper, which was an essential addiction, but I still prefer the normal looking sprites on the original Match Day, instead of this midgets with no neck in diapers.
A great game spoiled by the artistic execution.
