  1. This game is not worth your money or even the time it takes to download it. Not having the ability to play against another human is a huge strike to this game. Bottom line is to avoid this game.
  2. A real mess of ideas that tries hard but just doesn't have what it takes. [Issue 26, p.118]
  3. Sadly, Cyberball 2072 doesn't live up to our feelings of nostalgia, and a couple of design choices by the dev team leave this port on the wrong side of the line of scrimmage. [Dec 2007, p.78]
  4. You'll need to be a serious American football/robot fan to get stuck in now. [Dec 2007, p.96]
  5. Without the ability to compete against human opponents, this version of Cyberball 2072 is a completely useless waste.

The only downsides I noticed were some slight control issues (the analog stick doesn't translate the digital controls 100% perfect, and the d-pad just sucks) and the bizarre omission of access to the game's dip-switch settings (you only get to change the game timer, and it's already defaulted to the slowest setting, so there's no need to change it). Even so, this game just ROCKS on Xbox Live. Great stuff. Full Review »

I loved Cyberbal 2072... but I'd be more comfortable downloading this if someone could tell me whether there's any difference between this game and "Tournament" Cyberball 2072, which came out not too long afterwards. If there were any updates (other than the 4-person cabinet), I'd rather be playing the latest version of the game. Full Review »
