Finally, some details! And this sounds pretty good, especially so for DSiWare. I also like the look of the pitch from the screen - very nice and bright, and I think the camera angles look pretty nice as well. Can't wait to give this a go - no doubt it'll be a premium title, but it could be pretty damned expensive (in comparison to current pricing for games, at least).

Oh no, I hate football! This will definitely be a dead end in the DSiWare release schedule, if only for me.




This was an actual DS game that got decent-ish reviews. I mean a retail one. It was billed as a good alternative to the giants, FIFA and PES. It may not have sold well because of being over-shadowed? I am a massive football fan (LIVERPOOL, YNWA, lol), but don't really like playing "serious" football video games like fifa and pes. I prefer Mario Strikers in fact. HOWEVER, since this may n ot cost that much in comparison to the retail titles, and gameloft have been generally good with their "ports", I may download this baby.

Can we possibly have a Rugby version? The game sounds pretty neat, but being Welsh I have to take preference for the other sport.

Ooh, downloadable footy! Could be swell. Taking photos for players' faces actually sounds like a cool idea.

Looking Good so far. I am a Footy fan (Favourite teams are Man Utd, Southampton and AFC Bournemouth (I live in the south west) and Inter Milan). I wonder what leagues will appear. I particularly like how they're using the camera for this.

I usually hate soccer games but with Camera funtions, Multiplayer, and crap load of teams this is now a must buy for me.

Okay, this sounds like winner to me. Yet, I'm still hoping for Golf as it is my favorite sport. Too bad Nintendo has not yet brought Mario Golf to the DS platform.




I read a mini hands on play test of the game (some Ware Frankfurt conferance or something). Its the same game as the DS version minus a few modes and a few grounds. Its likely to be 500 points. The RRP was over 5 times the price and this game got around 8/10 type revws. I think its a no-brainer for people who like, or would consider a game like this. I'm in tbh.
