Quite disappointing. It's choppy framerate, second rate graphics, and bland textures affect both gameplay and fun factor. These characters have character, and it simply doesn't show up on the PS2 version.
Essentially SEGA Soccer Slam fails to hit all the marks a fun arcade football game should hit and indeed were hit by Midways superior RedCard. If its a solid and fun arcade kick-about youre after then plump for Midways game as Soccer Slam is best avoided.
