Review of 'Soccer Challenge'

Rating:2 User: YOR

It's an interesting concept to say the least but it's just poorly executed. As The Dean states there are four disciplines to train in. There's Dribbing which has you dribble the ball around the cones, or as The Dean states just past the arrow, which defeats the purpose of dribbing the ball. There's tackling, except you can't actually tackle, you just have to go near the player and you'll either take the ball off him or fall on your bum. It all seems luck based to me. There's passing which has you pass the ball to a flashing teammate who are alligned in a circle, and is the only one of the four that makes any sense. And then we have penalties which is self explanatory, run towards the ball and shoot it past the goale, except you run towards the ball from roughly 30-35 yards out, who even starts their run-up that far out anyway? Plus, you button bash to run. And then scoring a goal is luck based anyway, plus you're more likely to run past the ball without even hitting it. And then once you have all the disciplines completed there's the assault course to trynout which has you doing everything all over again, like you can be bothered anyway. Again, nice idea, it's just too bad it doesn't work very well.
