  1. It's nothing short of an ingenious set-up and, while there's the odd glitch, in general matches are fast-paced and exciting.

    Even if football doesn't appeal, there's still a solid RPG experience to be had. [Nov 2011, p.95]

    Be sure to check out Inazuma Eleven and hope that it sells well enough to get the superior sequel also localised.

    A lively, imaginative and fun RPG, with a football element charmingly blended in. And while some may wince at the unbearably chipper voice acting, there is considerable depth and human drama hidden behind its boyish enthusiasm.

    The game's a solid and fun addition to the DS's heaving RPG roster, although it never quite sparks into life like you hope it will and feels a bit young at times.

    Inazuma Eleven is an intriguing blend of RPG and soccer that works on so many levels, though the occasional scripted match leaves us crying in the stands.

    Inazuma Eleven is a charming RPG with a lot going on, but it doesn't offer a great game of football.
