Our videos of Kick Off Revival

Our videos of Kick Off Revival

If you're old enough, you must have played Kick Off back in the days, and you must have found it pretty hard because of its challenging control scheme. Chances also are that you preferred Sensible Soccer, which was our case actually. We know Dino Dini wouldn't be too happy to read this, but we just had more fun with Jon Hare's game, even though it was merely a slightly modified version of the original concept. Dino Dini's Kick Off Revival is back this week on PS4 for a 6 months exclusivity and in our opinion, it's going to have a hard time convincing old and young players alike. Well, unless they have a lot more patience than we do that is. The gameplay video inside should prove how complicated the game still is, which is good news of course as it is faithful to the original title. The question is, is there still a place for such takes on football today? Quite honestly, we don't know.


Gameplay #1 - Learning

I always wanted to be good at FIFA/PES, but they're just too hard for me to master (I suck, I know).
I don't know why anybody is doing a proper arcade football game, like Virtua Striker for example. I can't be the only one who enjoys football games but sucks at them.

This remake came out from nowhere, I was actually hoping for a second... I didn't remember it was even harder than today's games.

Amazing/Best soccer game!!!
Buy it now!!

Dino Dini is a true Legend! He managed to transfer a legendary 2d game to 3d and make it as good!!
I can't stop playing it!!! OMG I'm 13 again!!!

Nostalgia isn't all that. Great in its day but this new KO really does look awful in comparison to modern football games. It looks like a free android/ios game.

not a huge fan of football games but this was exceptional fun back on the Amiga. I play it occasionally and it's still the most intensely fun you can have 2 players. Looks definitely aren't always everything

It appears to handle closely to the original just looking at the video so I may keep an eye on this. I wonder if it still has a referee choice which was always hilarious if you chose Screech

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (47 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (50 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (55 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (57 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (58 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: generally yeah. i mean, MS need their next gears of war-level success, even if it just becomes an annualized addition to their usual games. but it would be something. (59 minutes ago)
