    It sure brings back a lot of memories... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I know it won't be exactly the same feeling like playing the actual game and accidentally smashing random opponent's players with your knees, but at least I hope it'll be as good as the computer game version from 1990...

    Edit: Ok, I played a couple of games... Tbh, I expected it to be a lot better and polished... Too simle, too few options, too scrappy work... Well, anyhow, it IS Subbuteo, so, I'll probably keep it in my flashcard (it's only 8MB, after all), but I got a bit disappointed, after getting equally excited... Even the 18-year-old Amiga version looks and (more importantly) plays a lot better than this one...
    Seriously now... What the hell were you playing as a kid??? Pokemon, or something??? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Yeah, sort of defeats the purpose of learning the skill of flicking it no?

    We never got this game in the US since... well, since we don't particularly care for football.

    Looking at the new website for the game, I see the have moved from little figures to cheesy carboard cutouts. What the heck?

    why play tennis. football, racing whatever games on ds? i know its something where you can get your 'real game' out easily (oops i dont have it) but its just a small 'leap' to the others.
    Not sure how well the real game of subbuteo plays on a bus with the ball falling off and rolling under the seats.
