  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. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. It's really a case of great game additives making up for mediocre game design.
  7. 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.

    Sorry to say, I returned Red Card after 9 days of mixed emotions. Being a big Hitz and Blitz fan (I thought they would name this game Sorry to say, I returned Red Card after 9 days of mixed emotions. Being a big Hitz and Blitz fan (I thought they would name this game Kickz...), I greatly anticipated Red Card. The graphics are decent - 8, the gameplay is pretty much right on with charge-up super moves and shots - 9, the initial controller layout was an atrocity, but no prob due to the customizable controllers (Something no game should be without!!) - 9, and the Multiplay is only decent with only 2 players being allowed simultaneous play - 7. However, the real drag is the lame ass(or ungodly) goal keepers. You can rip a charge-up super shot just inside the box only to be stopped, and the next minute duff a weak shot from outside the box only to sail over the keepers head - 5. Did I miss something? Well, the developers did, and now I have $40.00 to spend on FIFA Soccer 2002! Collapse

    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! The whole concept of this game is wrong, Midway have ost their way on this one! Expand
