  1. This may just be the best high energy sports game on the planet...Soccer Slam breaths new life into the system and gives us a taste of what real GameCube games can look like. [Apr 2002, p.50]
  2. 100
    Attention to detail is the name of the game. Despite the over-the-top premise, this is one of the richest titles released in sometime.
  3. While the single-player mode may get a little tiring, playing Exhibition mode against your friends is always going to be a blast.
  4. It’s fast, furious and above all, a whole lot of fun.
  5. 90
    A non-stop adrenaline rush, and as a multiplayer game, it is dangerously addictive.
  6. It has a whole lot of action in a short amount of time.
  7. Everything is extremely bright and colorful, and no matter what’s going on there are never instances of slowdown – except when there is supposed to be slowdown.
