Summary: This game is a lot of fun when playing multiplayer. The gameplay is so basic but this is an advantage. It eradicates the chances of a Pro evo expert winning against a football game virgin. It's hard to get a rhythm with the ball when in possession, meaning you cant just run and score with the same technique like in Pro evo. I thought that Pro evo 3 couldn't be beaten as a multiplayer football game. It's a great development from the classic ISS on the old SNES.
Summary: This game HAS to be one of the worst football games ever. Cast your minds back to the 1990s SNES classic, ISS. It had it's flaws - there were lots of unrealistic goals and the challenge mode was nigh impossible at times. BUT, it was fair and so bad in everything that it was awesome - it didn't try to be the best, it just accepted it was pants and thats why we all loved it. Fastforward to 2002, and out pops this version.
Summary: This is a great game to have! It is fun and there is loads to do in the game! The create player and team is good and the multilayer is excellent! The commentry is a little repetitive at times but thats nothing and the gameplay is easy to get to grips with and its smooth! ISS is still one of the best footy games around today (now PRO EVO SOCCER) but the best was prehaps on the SNES, what fun that was, but this is just as good on the Gamecube and you can now pick it up at...
Excerpt: Those who read my reviews regularly (virtually none) will know that a few months ago I reviewed Fifa 2003 and awarded it 5 stars. Now I’m going to rate International Superstar Soccer 2 (ISS for short), its main competitor. Sounds pointless, right? What’s the point of rating another, significantly older football game when I’ve already given Fifa full marks? Well, although they’re both football games, they have very different styles of play and basic gameplay.
Summary: It's a pretty average footie game with 1 annoying drawback: it is almost impossible to change control to the player you need. This is great for the attacker but very very annoying for the defending player. Get Fifa 2003 instead.
Excerpt: Firstly, let me begin by saying how much I hate football games that have 'Soccer' in the title. Thoroughly irritating. Soccer is a game played only in the US and features such things as: 'a net-shot opportunity'; 'the shot-zone'; 'sudden death match-up'; 'net-shake legends'. All these taken from American Commentary on the World Cup.
Summary: Its a real shame: I mistakenly believed having played ISS evolution on the playstation that the Nxt Gen conversion would be ultra cool, but then this is not Evolution... The goalies are fools, jumping lacklusterly, missing just about every free kick aimed at them, there is the 'golden spot', i.e.
Summary: International super star soccer for the Nintendo 64 saw me vegetabalized for the good part of 3 months. Me and my housemates played it so much we started betting on each game and using manual Keepers, if we were to die there playing, the police would have had to use our dental records for identification as the skin on our finger tips were quite literally shaven.
Summary: International Superstar Soccer. The name is synonymous with the best video game adaptation of the beautiful game. From the critically acclaimed SNES version to the well received ISS 2000 on the dear departed Nintendo 64, ISS has carved itself a niche into Electronic Arts’ FIFA dominated football game market. Many people would suggest that ISS, especially the N64 versions, were deemed to be the greatest football video games around. They’d be right of course.
Summary: Maybe I'm influenced by only playing the FIFA games before but I'm blown away with this. If you're a big football fan you'll definitely appreciate the way you can build up play, thread through balls between defenders and generally do all the things you would expect to be able to do! Of particular note is the defending - you can actually get defenders to work together rather than in (frustating) total isolation as with FIFA.
