fun and less serious soccer games by neogeoowner on August 12, 2014
There are plenty of serious soccer simulations on home consoles these days, with realistic graphics and animation, plus all of the well known football teams to choose from. The problem is that they are not that much fun for non-soccer fans.
Soccer brawl is a simple and fun arcade soccer game. It is designed to be picked up in 30 seconds for a quick 5 minute game. The added violence gives it a more universal appeal (and is what is missing from the real game imo :)
This was the game that I used to bring out on my Neo Geo when I was a kid, when my friends asked "do you have any football games".
It's a great game and exactly what you would expect from an SNK soccer game. It has huge sprites (for a soccer game) and they just couldn't resist making it a beat em up too!
