  1. Serious soccer fans should like it as much as casual fans looking for a fast-paced game. [Aug 2002, p.143]
  2. It may not have the totally outrageous antics of NFL Blitz, or NHL Hitz, but it does thrive on contact, speed and transition.
  3. It goes into slightly more realistic territory without sacrificing the fun, easy-to-learn gameplay that most of Midway's sports games possess.
  4. All of the elements of the game are pretty sound, but it occupies a strange place in the sport... too exagerrated for sim fans and not exegerated enough for some arcade fans.

    The ability to smack players around, power-up, and cover more field with lots of frantic exchanges of possession makes RedCard entertaining.
  6. A game which while enjoyable at first, is neither all out brutal or skill–full enough a simulation to make you want to hone either your fighting or football skills for months to come.
  7. Midway should’ve opted for smaller teams rather than 11 on 11 play. Think of Hitz, Blitz or Jam. This was a major game design folly here.
  8. It's really a case of great game additives making up for mediocre game design.
  9. All credit to Midway for trying their luck with the football market, but they should have left things up to the big boys; ‘FIFA’, ‘ISS’ and ‘PES’.
  10. Holds it own as a fun, easy to pick up soccer title.
  11. Definitely more fun multiplayer than alone, I'm still not sure how long you'll want to play this one after the novelty wears off.

    Far too quick gameplay. Fouling is just madness, you get absoloutely nothing from this game. No features, it dosen't even include a career orFar too quick gameplay. Fouling is just madness, you get absoloutely nothing from this game. No features, it dosen't even include a career or manager mode!
