    Pure Football is a nice soccer game, but it could have been a lot better. The gameplay is fun, but it has some complications. Visually the game is nice, but the audio isn’t, because it’s kind of empty. Pure Football is a nice combination of FIFA Street and 2010 FIFA World Cup. Short: a nice game, but could have been a lot better.

    Competently put together and actually pretty well presented. [Issue#194, p.95]
  3. No serious competition for FIFA Street. The gameplay is not dynamic and badly coordinated. Only the campaign mode is somewhat fun.
  4. Pure Football may be an arcade take on the sport, but that doesn't excuse its repetitive gameplay and general lack of game modes.
  5. 40
    Pure Futbol is a mess of a soccer game. Its cover claims that an authentic experience awaits, but what's actually in store for players who pick up this game is far from the real deal.
  6. The most telling problem though, is that even when playing with the very best squad of footballers that Pure can muster, it just isn't engaging and fluid enough to be of interest for more than a couple of matches.
  7. If only the gameplay was better. [Aug 2010, p.96]
