  1. It's nothing short of an ingenious set-up and, while there's the odd glitch, in general matches are fast-paced and exciting.

    Be sure to check out Inazuma Eleven and hope that it sells well enough to get the superior sequel also localised.

    Even if football doesn't appeal, there's still a solid RPG experience to be had. [Nov 2011, p.95]

    It may not have the size or depth that other more comprehensive RPGs possess (including Level 5's very own Dragon Quest IX) but Inazuma Eleven is a refreshing take on the genre that proves compelling despite its little foibles.

    A great football game, a great RPG and a wonderful mix. If you like football or RPGs its for you. If you like both, and maybe even anime, then it is a must buy.

    A lively, imaginative and fun RPG, with a football element charmingly blended in. And while some may wince at the unbearably chipper voice acting, there is considerable depth and human drama hidden behind its boyish enthusiasm.
