About Captain Tsubasa
"Captain Tsubasa" is a highly innovative game based on a successful sports manga/anime about a Japanese junior soccer player and his teammates. The game is played indirectly by menus similar to RPG combat systems. Every action (pass, shot, dribble etc.) is accompanied by good looking graphical scenes. The game is also one of the few early 8-bit titles that make really good use of its manga/anime license. The game excellently captures the spirit of the series. It includes all the well-known "special shots" and characters. Now with all these very good points I am still not convinced by the gameplay itself. As innovative as it is, I would still prefer a well-playable "action" soccer game over this one.
