Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Match Day II'

Rating:4 User: Matt_B

This sequel does a fairly good job of sorting out the flaws of the earlier game, but it's still some way off the mark as far as computer football games go.

Yes, it's amongst the most popular ones for the Spectrum, but against near contemporaries such as Microprose Soccer on the C64 and Kick Off on the 16-bits it's decidedly pedestrian.

Ball control is a bit more intuitive and the computer opponent isn't a complete dead loss, but realistically you're going to need a human opponent on hand to get anything much out of the gameplay.

About as good as football games got on the Spectrum, but that's not really saying much.
