Golazo boldly recalls the glory days of the arcade soccer games, bringing back memories of cult classics we all know. With its vintage, not-too-serious, artistic and creative modern approach to classic gameplay, Golazo is certainly a perfect game for people who are weary of football managers or complicated hard-core simulators.

    Golazo does a lot right even in spite of a few nagging issues with shooting and passing. I sincerely enjoy the presentation as it has a wacky yet still grounded feel. The single-player offerings aren’t all that deep, but in a multiplayer setting, this is an enjoyable sports game. It’s light and breezy with just enough strategy that it could rouse amusing competition out of a local multiplayer session.

    Golazo! is a competent love letter to '90s arcade football games, accurately capturing both their strengths and weaknesses. Playing alone against the CPU can be a frustrating affair, but get some pals involved and this one's got post-pub entertainment written all over it.

    Golazo! does not deliver a serious football simulation and that's fine - fun and intense moments is all what this game is about, with its dribbling and tackling moves, enjoyable local multiplayer (pity for the lack of online though) and overall sense of satisfaction of a few hours well spent. Some technical issues need to be addressed and the emphasis on a more action/arcade experience will leave out more committed fans of the king of sports but Golazo! is more than able to provide some hours of less than serious fun.

    Golazo! is a good arcade football title, casual and willing to give good moments of relaxation with fun matches. However, its technical section is improvable and its gameplay does not always respond to expectations.

    The core of Golazo!’s gameplay is fine, It plays like a soccer game from the 16bit era. However in making it accessible, the team at Purple Tree omitted a little too much. The game is certainly worth a fun afternoon jaunt with some friends, but it’s not exactly going to be training the next wave of digital footballers.

    Golazo! is a humble game and it definitely entertains for a while, especially if you are into co-op games with friends. Unfortunately it doesn´t live up to the standards of yesteryear due to all the crazy stuff happening during the matches as well as the excessive lack of depth.

    For lack of a better term, Golazo! is a pretty run-of-the-mill arcade football sim. It does well to channel a '90s aesthetic and it is sure to create some memorable moments despite the hiccups in its design. The controls are simple enough to pick up and play and the gameplay solid enough to warrant whipping it out for a night of arcade fun with friends, but it certainly isn't going to hold most players' interest when it comes to playing solo against the CPU.
