Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

If you've been playing games for some time--and by "some time" I mean long enough actually to have a Spectrum or Amiga computer collecting dust in your closet--it's likely that you'll remember Speedball 2. Well, that classic game from the Bitmap Brothers has spawned a new sibling. Speedball 2100 is not necessarily a completely new game, but more of a reworking of an old friend--and growing where it needed to grow.

Based around a combination of a soccer-management sim, a soccer-arcade sim, and a beat-em-up, with its main inspiration coming from Real Tennis, this isn't your average game. Your task is to play, manage, and guide your team through a futuristic league that's controlled by large corporations. Along the way, not only do you have to beat the other teams, but also you've got to collect money and power-ups to fund new uniforms and the ever-expensive transfer fees.

Although difficult, this game will keep you going for sometime as you battle your way through the leagues, knockout cups, and championships. This makes for a great multiplayer game, too, as you try to build better teams to beat your opponents. Many a sleepless night was lost on the original, and I'm sure the same will be the case with Speedball 2100. --Stuart Miles

Pros:

  • Improved game of yore
  • Great as a multiplayer game
Cons:
  • Not a completely new game

I spent many nights playing the original, and on the genesis, i looked forward to it coming out on the ps. However i expected a beefed up version, instead it is just a recopy of the original which came out several (pre ps) years ago. the characters are the same, and there is no multi-season options. the first time i played it i managed to finish 2nd in both leagues. it should have been simple to upgrade the gameplay along with the graphics. and it doesnt work on the PS2 WHEN YOU WIN. But it was only ... so what can i expect.

Verified Purchase
Speedball is an arena game that almost reminds me of what hockey would be like if the players ran on foot and carried the puck. Except more violent.
I vaguely remember that I liked the game Speedball way back when I had an Amiga computer, and thought I'd give this one a shot even though it got a few bad reviews - especially since you can get it for cheap now.
And I'm glad I did!
Admittedly the first couple of times I played I nearly agreed that the game should renamed "Slowball." If you go right into a game without checking out any of the options, it feels like the players are running through molasses.
The deal is this:
Before you enter any game, you get the option to "upgrade" your team as a whole or individual players. As you might guess, one of the most important upgrades you can buy is "speed"!
After discovering this and upgrading speed and other attributes (such as aggression, strength, throwing, intelligence, etc) the game will be pretty fast right from the start, and keeps getting faster as you progress through the game - in later rounds it gets so fast it's hard to keep up with the game!
Anyway, beyond player upgrades, more about the game:
The goal of the game is to score more points than the other team, which can be scored in a variety of ways. The main way is to score a goal on the other team. More points can be scored by injuring other players or hitting targets on the walls. As another way to rack up points, on each side of arena is a "ramp" you can attempt to get the ball into, which multiplies the points you get when you score afterwards.

"Speedball 2100" is a remake being offered by Empire as part of it's value priced catalog. While 3-D has been added, the makers wanted to keep the spirit of the original. After playing the game, I ask: "Why?". In a half-baked effort to "upgrade" to 3-D, the players look like road kill. The graphics are dark and dull, and so is the sound.
Even worse, SB is UNforgivably unplayable, and for a game called "Speed" ball, the players are so slow. There is a GM function, but this game is so bad, who cares?
What a shame. With a little effort this game could be great. Instead, the makers figured at the low price, you could regurgitate it and land a few nostalgia gamers and cheapskate curiosity seekers.
With 4 next generation systems to be on the market in a few months, marketing a game like "Speedball 2100" as a stand alone product at this point in time has to be called into question. At any price. -Dan Moreland

The Bitmap Brothers (the people behind the programming of the original game) never thought this would be such a blockbuster. Speedball has sold over a million copies in Europe. It can be found in Commodore 64, Amiga and now in Playstation (probably there will be a PC Version).
Guys. Do enjoy this piece of art, it is one classic that will blow your mind away. It took almost 4 years to come up with this Playstation Version.
Basically, it is an Arena Sport, where you have to find your way to beat the opponent [with a metal ball to score points]. Plenty of action, nice frames and nice sound. There's always the option to trade, buy and sell players, a gym where you can train your hordes and 3 sorts of tournaments.
So compulsive and attractive, you won't take your hands off the console for hours ! [And considering the low retail price, you must be off your trolley if you don't get this game].
The Bitmap Brothers are working on a 3D version of the game.
