Speedball 2 - Amiga 500 (Released 1990)

This brutal sports game was released on several platforms, including the Atari ST, C64, Megadrive and later the GBA.....but I'm reviewing the definitive edit, on Commodores big white baby the Amiga 500!!

The game, developed by UK company The Bitmap Bros, is part of a trilogy. Don't worry about the 3rd installment of the series, which appeared on the Playstation as Speedball 2100 - that was absolutely horrible, whilst the original Speedball (multiplatform) was decent enough.....its Speedball 2 anyone should really care about.

Speedball 2 is a violent, futuristic sports game, which puts you in charge of a team called Brutal Deluxe. Your team begin as feeble weaklings in the 2nd division, and your goal is to battle for promotion to the 1st division, and be the best, as all good sports games do! Your team consists of 12 players, 9 outfield players (1 goalie, 2 defenders, 3 midfielders, 3 forwards and 2 substitutes), and the aim is to get as many points as you can in the 3 minutes (90 seconds each half) as you can against the opposition.

The pitch is a big steel rectangle one with boundaries so the steel ball can't go out of bounds thus meaning the game simply never stops. Same with football, there is a goal at each end that you must strive to protect or attack. Rules? There are none, you need to get points via scoring goals, hitting points stars on the side, or point buzzers. The players throw and run with the ball, passing it to teammates, but you must watch being tackled by the opposition, who can attack you without any rules or regulations.....anything goes! If a player ends up getting injured enough (each player has a power bar), then they will go off and be replaced by a sub.....which then gives the opposition points. Yes, you get points for INJURING a player!!

During the games, you MUST collect coins. This is key to advancing, as you need money to buy new players, or build existing players up at the gym. Other collectables on the pitch are items which temporarily build up strength, speed, throwing ability etc, as well as a temporary freeze of motion on the opposition, which gives you a few seconds to reap advantage!

I've described the game in a nutshell (some may say a large nutshell!). This game is simply awesome, and literally one of the best games ever made. It's so devilishly addictive and playable and is still unique to this day. It looks and sounds the business despite it being developed now 18 years ago, and there is nothing quite as exhilirating as an epic Cup final against Super Nashwan or Fatal Justice (Speedball 2's finest opposition teams) where the pace is so fast and frantic.

I urge anyone who uses emulators to download this game, or anyone with an Xbox 360 to purchase Speedball 2 on Xbox Live Arcade. Its the perfect videogame, and i've not even mentioned yet the fact that its multiplayer! An amazing gem of a game......they really don't make them like this anymore. ONE OF THE GREATEST VIDEOGAMES EVER MADE.

Score : 10/10

Hmmm, would that have been "Z"? Or perhaps Xenon 2?

Bitmap Bros did make some decent titles, but Speedball 2 was their masterpiece.

Aww still bitter about me?

I tried the Xbox Live version recently - it is terrible and once again tries to go all "3D", but it doesn't survive the transition. They seem to have a "retro version" like the original, but it doesn't work and seems too slow as well, and doesn't feel right on the Xbox pad.

The original though stands up well to this day, and is one of the most exciting games ever made.

The only way to play this game properly is either through an Amiga emulator on the PC, or better still, on a joystick ON the Amiga.

actually i just played it (see how much i value your opinions?). its comparable to a mario strikers of yore and actually its fun. but only for a minute. i can see why this game is a classic- gameplays very robust and just feels right, but its not all that deep and doesnt hold up so well today. tbh though it *is* probably better than tecmo bowl, which is an achievement

It's much better than Mario Strikers charged. The game is excellent, and the League Championship gets incredibly intense, especially in division 1 against the strong teams like Nashwan and Fatal Justice. Also the transfer bit really adds a spice of management to the game.

It's not fun only for a "minute", otherwise I wouldn't have been playing this game consistently for the past 17 years. Me and a mate still to this day play the game on a regular basis, doing the league/cups and 2 player games - it has almost infinite longevity. It has a depth and addictive game engine that the original SNES Mario Kart has as well. As you say, the gameplay is very robust and feels right, and as skill levels increase, and players get stronger, lightning fast reactions are required, as well as skills. It's one of the most intense and playable games ever devised.

The XBOX Live version is hugely disappointing compared to the original, which is a shame, as they messed up.

i can see what kind of game you like- not bad ones. there ones with gameplay which is simple on the outside but very robust, effective and fun. kind of a minute to learn a lifetime to master kind of thing. of course im referring to speedball and mario. speedball is a lot of fun and can be continued to play, if with friends, for a while, if your into the lifetime to master. i just prefer games which are more complex off the bat.

Yet, I found MGS games vastly easier to finish than Speedball 2 and certainly never found it complex, in fact MGS games are reasonably "user-friendly" and has a gentle learning curve. Playing Super Nashwan on the opening day of the season of Speedball 2 when you are newly promoted has proved VASTLY more challenging than absolutely ANY boss ever on any MGS game, as it would for anyone.

Your condescending tone about this is doing you no favours whatsoever, its just making you sound like a gaming snob with this "superior" attitude. You just sound bitter to be honest, and its not exactly endearing. I know you want to prove yourself..... but ultimately, you are just an average kid and a bit MGS obsessed and geeky.

flameboy118
20-06-2008, 06:11 PM
hang on... im condescending? not, oh i dont know, somebody else here?

mgs4 is very hard on hard settings- believe me, you would really really struggle to beat a boss, particularly on something like extreme difficulty- there are diffiulty settings ranging right up to 'if you get seen you lose' so i dont know how its easy

again, youre labelling me without meeting/knowing me. an average kid? why do i always have to bring my exam results into it (not exactly disproving the geeky theory) but an average kid doesnt get full A*s at gcse (mocks) with 3 100%s

As YOU say, WHY do you always bring exam results into arguments? It proves absolutely nothing, other than you get A*s at GCSE mocks!. Many many people are academic.....doesn't mean they (or you in this instance) are "intelligent", or "better", or not "average" even.

You come across on these boards as an average kid who's ego has been rather over-inflated by GCSE mock results! I actually feel embarrassed for you for even bringing this up.

uhh again, judging me. when was this ever about our characters? anyway, i never really want to bring up exam results, but i always end up feeling pushed into it.

you? youre biggest problem is how insecure you are. hence the insulting me/p-sleva/joeeda and constantly bringing me into debates while also denying that you are geeky and bringing up your mates/girlfriend at every intervel. dunno why, but while im sure you have friends and are intelligent, you are insanely insecure and it comes off badly on you while pushing others away from you while you insult them. thats all.

Bringing up exam results is the worst possible thing you could do. It makes you sound very young and naive. Which I guess you are....so its not a bad thing. If an adult was to say "yea, but I got a degree in this" or "straight A's" to try and defend themselves.....you'd know they were desperate and on the back foot!! Just like I knew you were just then.

Advice....if you are ever questioned or feel under pressure with insults, don't ever use the "exam results" response. Trust me, it made me think even less of you, although I did slightly pity you for such a knee-jerk reaction.

Believe me, I don't push away people that I don't want to, and I am actually very secure about myself, possibly a bit too cock-sure in fact at times which could be perceived as arrogance!! :D

flameboy118
20-06-2008, 08:35 PM
umm.... thanks for the advice?

and you do seem arrogant- but only because it makes you feel better about yourself because your so insecure. so really its the worst of both worlds.... i wouldnt have said that if you hadnt so utterly laid into me in the other thread

the word brutal is quite significant. the name of the team you play is brutal deluxe, the same name as the developer (i think). plus the fact that the game is really rather brutal

It is. It's basically a cross between football and rugby, but with literally no rules when it comes to violence. And of course its on a steel pitch.

I fully expect a sport like this to be about by 2095. Naturally i'll still be alive and pulling the birds.

Speedball 1 was pretty **** tbh......Speedball 2 (along with Street Fighter 2) could go down as one of the most improved and great sequels ever made.

Speedball 2 is up there amongst gaming legend. It's appeal back in the early 90s was massive, and you would not appreciate that not being round at the time.

It was one of the Amiga's gaming elite....alongside Monkey Island, Pirates and the original Civilisation.

Easily one of the most playable games ever made, and one of the greatest 2 player games of all time. It's on par with Super Mario Kart its THAT special.

i love the way you consider pirates to be an amiga game when it was out three years later on it. monkey island too was a pc game, and while il give you civilization, all the others are pc games (as are all other sid meier games up to revolution). really that amiga elite, besides speedball, were all, and are all remembered as pc games, all of them evolving into pc franchises (if you just count pirates as a sid meier game). the only possible way in which they were better is audiovisually, something which you frequently say doesnt matter. i should try to be nice, as certainly pirates, monkey island and civ are the kind of slow, pc games i like, but really the point is that they are exactly that- pc games. as for speedball, it may have been popular at the time, but it hasnt been remembered much, has it? i mean, for *me* not to have heard of it aside from seeing it get reviewed for the VC on ign (got a 7 or so- dunno how they screwed that up) means it must be fairly obscure. also you still cant say its nearly as famous as SF2, civ2, quake 2 tbh.

Oh jesus christ, you are starting an argument on Amiga's VS PC's now?!!

For starters, Monkey Island first came out on Atari ST and PC......secondly, the Amiga version when it did come out a year later was easily the best port of them all and most popular on that system.

Don't know much about Civilisation, but the sound card on the Amiga was miles ahead of anything on its time, so was likely to have the best version.

Pirates wise....that was originally on the COMMODORE 64.....but again, it was the Commodore Amiga version which was the superior version of them all. Trust me, the memorys and legendary status is down to the Amiga, which made those games.

As for Speedball 2......you are off your head. Many people of my generation (which makes up a HUGE part of the videogaming community) remember Speedball 2 very well. The game is very fondly remembered, and I found the 360 port of it a huge disappointment and a missed opportunity.

Get off your high horse and accept that in the latter part of the 80s, and early part of the 90s.....gaming was dominated by the NES, Amiga, SNES and Megadrive......NOT the PC which was in its infancy, basically until Doom and Sim City 2000 came out. Before then, it was vastly behind in technology when it came to gaming.

You are too young to remember, so don't even pretend to understand.

oh look, i think i spot the age card again. im sure the amiga versions were better, in fact they were. but really, they arent amiga games tbh. the point isnt whether the amiga was superior (and, btw, your always saying audiovisuals dont matter, and yet that was all the amiga was ahead of- its impossible to deny that the snes had better games). these are PC-style games, which have since grown into pc franchises, so if you like the amiga, surely you like the pc for having 3 of the 4 amiga elite?

anyway, pc has since taken over.

also, you are fairly controversial in that you always proclaim that the wii is the best becuase it sells the most. how did the commodore and amiga sell then?

on a (un)related note, can i join the review team yet? you like my galaxy review i sent you? you havent had any review for ages and lack reviews of brawl and mgs4- 2 of the years 3 biggest games, which i could review (ive beaten mgs4, and played much more brawl than you). what about if i win user of the month? dont say you got enough reviewers,because you havent had a review in a month. and dont tell me about quality control, because you have reviewers like Prometheus who doesnt know what penultimate means.

Your attitude is too wrong to become a reviewer. You are bitching about people like Prometheus who has done some decent reviews. Who cares for a minor grammatical mistake? Only geeky little you it would seem. You don't deserve to be a reviewer because a) your galaxy review wasn't up to much and b) your attitude towards fellow reviews is rather dubious and c) you are far too pedantic and biased.

Er, the SNES and Amiga were on par in terms of gaming catalogues overall. The SNES was stronger in some area's, and the Amiga in others (game wise)....the same could be said about the audio/visual aspects. You can't compare the two systems......however, you COULD compare the Amiga and PC.....and yes, they shared many of the same games, but the ease of use for Amiga games, the controls, and yes.....the graphics and sound, were vastly superior over the PC versions.

The C64 and Amiga 500 were MASSIVELY popular during the 80s and early 90s. Tens of millions of Commodore 64s/Amigas were sold during that period worldwide.

Sure the PC has since taken over, but who cares? Silly little boys with very little in their lives. I love the Amiga, and love the fact that most of the best games (and best versions of those games) made during the late 80s and early 90s were indeed on this system. The Amiga was a personal computer (PC), so i don't understand why you trying to put it down....you're just a bit of a loser aren't you?

(its mgs4). also, when you say my attitude towards reviewers is wrong, I like both punkster and joeeda, and have really never 'met' any of the others except you. i dont think your galaxy review was 'up to much' at all- you basically say nothing much about it, not capturing why its good, ramble on with badly written sentances before suddenly proclaiming its perfect. i reckon if we put it up to vote, people would say my review is better. but you wont do that becuase you know im right. who cares about a minor gramatical mistake? well you it would seem: 'Please take extra care in spelling and grammar, and please please check your review thoroughly before submitting.'. either way, no-ones reviewed a game in ages, you could use someone to review mgs4, for example and i havent seen too many other people be turned down from the review team. i would go make a poll on whose galaxy review is better right now, but i know you would delete it...

in all, im not going to argue with the about the amiga. i havent played enough of it to justify arguing against it (but thats silly, saying something you never played is rubbish, right?), the only point i was trying to make was that a) its really not all that famous, same goes for amiga exclusives and b) if its a pc, with games which went onto become pc games then why dont you like pc gaming?

Oh, and sorry your over-inflated ego took a bashing because I thought your Galaxy review was boring, but I was being honest. At least my reviews have passion, where as your reviews read far too stuffy and boring.

You are so up your own arse, and whats amusing is that you are only a kid (at least being older you have more RIGHT to be full of it!). At least have something to back up your arrogance or have a sense of humour about it. Instead, you just come across as a bland, immature and boring little boy.

im not devoid of wit or personality at all, perhaps im just too busy trying to make a point when posting at you, but more importantly i dont make witty or personal quips because i feel its always an argument between us, so they would be misplaced

dont think i havent noticed the 'ive been beaten (again), so im going to go to the lowest common denomonator and insult him personally, so it seems like im on top and so he's too defensive to notice that im out of things to say.' you do it all the time, we argue for ages, looks like itll never end. then suddenly, after a particularly valid point, you just revert to insulting me/whoever.

you think im making a fool of myself, and that everyone is cringing at how much of a fool im making of myself? you reckon everyones thinking: 'oh that nintendgod, hes effortlessly and witfully won another argument, showing himself to be superior, and making the other person a cringeworthy laughing stock?' you think thats what people think of you?

Firstly, you've never made a valid point on here.....you just rant on aimlessly. I know one doesn't tend to read their own posts.....but perhaps you should read your own.....for your own sake!

Oh, as for your last comment - I don't care what anyone else on here thinks, and it doesn't matter what I say, because you are making yourself look like the biggest prat.

and yet 2 people have PMed me telling me how youre easily the biggest prat. hmm. my posts are fine, read your own if you like. i dont rant on, i make decent points and dont repeat the same stuff over and over, relying on reviews and simply turning to criticism of the person and their arguing style rather than making a valid point...

Wow, 2 people PMed you saying that I am "easily the biggest prat" - that really burns!! The fact is they are probably as much a big a loser as you are!

You never make decent points, you seem to waffle on about nothing of any interest.....1000+ posts on senseless bull**** since MAY!!! :eek:

It doesn't make me right, its just fun making you look silly again.

I don't really mind people mentioning me in PMs to you.....just shows that i'm making you look stupid and you are crying about it behind closed doors :p

For a grown up, that is pretty immature. And for anyone to dissagree with that statement also needs to give it a think through.
Besides this isnt a "Drama Thread"

Its a good review on a game.

I'll leave you to it.
