Personal review

The port of this fantastic game from Amiga to ST didn't really lose anything in terms of gameplay, but suffered in the sound and graphics department. Developed to work on the standard ST (not the STe) it lacked sampled stereo sound and had sligtly lower colour resolution graphics. Even so, the game is still great fun to play and vastly enjoyable.

Official description

Welcome to the year 2100...
And to the only game in town: Speedball 2. The original game - which evolved from a barbaric street fracas - was phased out five years ago in 2095 due to widespread corruption. Now, with the creation of the Speedball Players' Association and the newly formed 16-team World Speedball League, Speedball 2 preserves the outrageous violence of the original game - the supreme factor of its universal appeal - in a radical 22nd-century arene setting where you can snap up extra points and power-charged weaponry.

Your team, Brutal Deluxe, is the League's doormat - sitting at the bottom of the WSL's Division 2. But now you're in charge - and an entire team's future rests in your hands...
