    Championship-winning concept held back by a few lacklustre mechanics. [Apr 2012, p.91]

    Inazuma Eleven 2 definitely stays true to the simple charm created by the first game, providing what is very much more of the same. An engaging premise sets the early theme of simple but enjoyable fun, which the gameplay is more than happy to uphold. Those looking for a challenging experience won't find that here, but there's plenty of enjoyment to be had by those prepared to sit back and enjoy the wacky adventures of the Raimon team.

    The enormous amount of recycling makes it difficult to enjoy and recommend this game over its predecessor, and that game should be available for cheap by now.

    Those looking for more of the same will get just that, but if you weren't won over by the original, an alien footy team from outer space will be an even harder story to stomach.

    There is something appealing about the soccer mechanics in the Inazuma Eleven-series, but the way the concept stands today it's no more than decent. The Inazuma-series has potential, if just Level-5 (who are also behind the Professor Layton games) dares to develop it further.

    Inazuma Eleven 2 offers a new story and a couple of gameplay tweaks but is ultimately more of the same.

    Prendere un inazuma eleven da manuale e migliorarlo non è roba da tutti, ma è roba per i migliori.
    99/100 e tutti muti e testa bassa.

    Prendere un inazuma eleven da manuale e migliorarlo non è roba da tutti, ma è roba per i migliori.
    99/100 e tutti muti e testa bassa.
    Gioco spettacolare, che fa sognare e divertire allo stesso tempo.
    Quasi perfetto se non per qualche piccola sbavatura.
