  1. Lightweight footie fans will love VS3 for its accessibility; footie nuts will love it for its attention to detail and near perfect gameplay.
  2. It's still far from reality, in that the ball is changing hands (or is that feet) literally every second...But it is fun. [June 2002, p.63]
  3. Poor control with one camera angle does not make a great game. You can have all the features in the world but if you don’t enjoy the gameplay then it was all for not.
  4. More of a self-running soccer simulator than a soccer game. The computer takes care of the majority of the controls.
  5. The close camera makes the game less of a sim in that passing is hit or miss. The AI tends to show hints of brilliance followed by complete idiocy.
  6. Breaks the cardinal rule of videogaming… it isn’t fun. And despite everything else, the graphics and franchise mode, the gameplay breaks the title.
