    Shrinks the field, boosts the action and scoring, and its multiplay makes for a party that's even more fun than passing around pitchers in a sports bar at seven in the morning.

    Even punters of the GameCube version will find a host of new options in this Xbox incarnation—most notably extra players and multiplayer games.
  3. Xbox owners interested in a fast-paced, funny sports game with plenty of personality and deceptively deep gameplay shouldn't think twice about picking up Soccer Slam.
  4. Although it could use a tad more variety regarding game options, it's a brilliant start to the franchise and one of Xbox's best single-machine multiplayer games.
  5. Better than Midway’s "RedCard," and more violent than the average ice hockey game, Sega Soccer Slam is pure arcade fun, albeit not very long-lived.
  6. A refreshing change from FIFA et al. It is easy to get into but addictive enough to keep you coming back for more.
  7. The world's videogame players require this monstrosity like they need an extra hemorrhoid, a tattoo of child actor Emmanuel Lewis on their buttocks, and the director's cut of "The Adventures of Ford Fairlaine." [Fall 2002, p.119]

    This game rocks. Furious mix of fighting and sports. Before Deathrow this WAS the best multiplayer sports game. Definitely worthwhile.

    The best sports game on xbox, but hard to get your hands on it these days. If you can find it get it. (works on 360 also).

    It's a great game. The characters are so fun. The only drawback is that it's a little simple.
