Released in 1995 by Ubi Soft Entertainment, ACTION SOCCER is a colorful and fun soccer game
that adds some quirks and comedy to soccer. Its 16 different players are represented with
humorous animal cartoons and they are given hilarious names like the Dancing Dolphins,
the Nagging Horses, and The Flying Moles. Its graphics are cartoonish, colorful, and quite
interesting to look at.
Alongside the option to select how the weather is going to look on
the football pitch, whether snowy, rainy, night, or day, players can choose what camera angle
they prefer from either 3D isometric and 2D overview, The 16 different teams have strong and
weak points in terms of skills like strength, speed, and shot power. This allows players to
choose from a wide variety based on the strength of their gameplay. In addition, ACTION SOCCER
offers players the option to choose what kind of strategy will their soccer team use. Are they
going to play offense, defense, or are they going to play a balance of both as normal?
All of these options are playable and players can compete and win in the UBI CUP, a tournament,
or a championship. Although the game follows some basic football rules, it is more focused
on fun than realism and does not account for offside and player's fatigue levels. This emphasis
on the fun side of soccer is made more memorable by the funny and witty commentary of Jonathan
Pierce and UBI soft entertainment’s editor during matches. Action soccer is a joyful and funny
game that players will cherish as both single-player and multiplayer.
