  • Summary: Neither the traditional action-simulation nor management game, Quizball Goal is a completely different take on the football genre; an arcade quiz football game where you control a team during matches against either a human or computer controlled opponent and where success is dependent on your football knowledge, strategic wit, and reactions (as well as a bit of luck). Lead your team to victory on the pitch by answering football related questions for each pass, tackle or shot you attempt. Answer correctly and you succeed, answer the questions incorrectly and your passes will go astray, your shots will miss the target and your tackles on the opponent player will fail. Expand

  1. It's like FIFA meets Buzz, fortunately without quizmaster Buzz. Anyone who thinks that a successful combination of these two genres is as unlikely as Fernando Torres scoring a goal, is sorely mistaken because Quizball is actually quite enjoyable. [April 2012, p.100]

    Too limited to considered great, but still a fun experience for soccer fans with a brain.

    A somewhat strange combination of soccer matches and soccer quiz. The high difficulty level of the questions may alienate a lot of players, but if you've got some friends who share your passion there is potential for some fun and exciting rivalry in this charming title.
  4. From awful to appealing. [May 2012, p.116]
