Superb sports simulation from the author of 'International Soccer' One or two players with nine computer levels The long-awaited sequel to International Soccer has been floating around for months in various pirated and rather unsatisfactory pre-production forms. Now at last the real thing is here, and it's brilliant. Anyone who has seen International Soccer will instantly recognize the players, only this time they are bigger and are dressed in really cool basketball gear. For the two of you who haven't seen Soccer1, control of a team of players is easy. The nearest player to the ball is chosen by the computer and put under your control. You'll know which player this is by his vest changing color slightly. If you pass a ball, then the receiving player is automatically selected for you to control. On loading, you are presented with a series of options. Select one of the nine computer levels or play two players with a friend. If you don't like your team's colors, then you can change them from a varied choice of strips. This program also allows you to play three types of rules: NCAA, NBA, and Olympic. Each setting has its own rules and characteristics. Once you are happy with the settings, you can start the game which begins with four cheerleaders doing a little dance. The teams then run out of the changing rooms onto the pitch and go to their tip-off positions. A whistle will sound, and the match starts. The ball is thrown into the air, and the players have to jump up and knock the ball. Thoroughly enjoyable sports simulation which had just as much impact as its older brother Soccer. Action-packed, with great attention to detail and play that you can really relate to, make this one an instant classic. I loved every minute playing it, and it's released at a price that anyone can afford. Don't miss it.
