Majik  "I Rented International League Soccer With The Idea Of Using It To Pass A Wet Weekend - And That Dreary Weekend Just Got Worse.

The Game Looked Good To Start With - Nice Graphics And An Interesting Tactical Layout Which You Could Alter During Play To Enable Effective Wing Play Or Close Do Your Opposition Thru' The Middle. At Least Thats What The Idea Was.

The Game Started And The Setting Of The Stadium In A City - With Moving Trains, Birds, 'planes Etc Looked Better Than Fifa 2001 (ps2) For Example.

Then Things Went Wrong.

The Commentary Didnt So Much Begin To Flow As Fall From The " tv Team ". There Was As Much As A Whole Second Between Phrases In A Sentance - That Might Not Sound Like Much But When Its Like That.....

.....every Sentence You Begin To Get Very Annoyed. The Commentary Is So Bad It Could Almost Be Described As Entertaining.

Ok So Commentary And On Pitch Sounds Only Add To The Complete Package - Just As Long As It Plays Well.

Sadly Taito Didnt Manage To Get This Right Either. To Say That The Players Are Slow Is An Understatement - Even When "sprinting" They Acted As Tho' They Were Running 4 Feet Of Water And When It Started To Rain - The Weather Could Change During A Game (nice Fog)- Its As If The Water Turned To Treacle With Even The Ball Nearly Stopping On The Pitch.

The Control Response Times Are Dreadful. If You Want To Cross The Ball In For A Header You Have To Make The Move About 15 Yards Early (or Considering The Speed At Which These Players Run About 2 Hours Early!) For Fear Of Running Over The Endline. Then You Have To Turn, Make Tackles, All The Usual In A Football Game - No Sorry This Wasnt A Game It Was More Like Pulling My Own Teeth With A Pair Of Pliers - I Have Seen Sunday Morning League Players With More Grace After 20 Pints The Night Before And They Showed More Consideration For The Beauty Of The Game!

Never In My Life Have I Played A Game As Bad As This - Quality Control Must Have Been On Valium The Day This Came Down For Checking.

Pretend You Never Even Seen It On The Shelf!"
