  • Summary: Redcard 20-03 shows why soccer really is a contact sport with over-the-top kicks, scores, celebrations, and tackles. In this combination of fast-paced soccer and authentic gameplay, 50 international teams compete for the Cup Championship. You can play as fantasy teams, such as Martians, Ninjas, Matadors, and Apes, or you can create your own superteam. Take your team through various modes--including Friendly, Party, World Conquest, and Finals--and increase your players' turbo power by collecting boost points. Expand

  1. It’s almost mind boggling how the opponent can easily deflect your super power kicks but totally not catch the weaker shots you happen to unleash.
  2. It still takes the same exciting type of "no rules" approach that the previous games have taken, but RedCard resembles the actual sport of soccer far more than, say, a two-on-two basketball game represents actual NBA play.
  3. Surprisingly enough Midway has done a fantastic job keeping the game real enough to keep hardcore soccer fans satisfied.
  4. A unique title with controls too complex for an arcade title and action too ridiculous for a simulation.
  5. A merely adequate, uninspired, but occasionally funny soccer game. [Oct 2002, p.108]

    Serious soccer fans won't get all of the authenticity they want and casual arcade fans won't get all of the thrills they expect from a Midway game entitled RedCard soccer.
  7. The beautiful grass texture made us feel all outdoorsy and sexy. [Fall 2002, p.121]

    You know i was going to give this game a ten... but then i started to name the cons about the game. Goalie's AI is weak, it is too easy to find a hot spot to score from everytime, hard to get control of the ball(trap it), free kicks are hard to understand, no curve control(if there is then they should tell you), and a lot of the times u get frustrated because you go right through the guy u r trying to tackle. even with all the cons you're prolablly sayin scr*w this game, but this game is worth it. it is thee funniest soccer game i've played(besides the ones u used to laugh at on sega and super). you get a great feeling nailing the ref for a bad call or for fun. this game is sweet, creavity, and of course FUN. a definite game to waste 5 dollars to rent. I would like to see a sequal.... c'mon midway u always make games better then their ancestors. Expand
