Academy of Champions: Soccer (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
21 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Ubisoft’s Academy of Champions: Soccer ambitiously attempts to tie together three core gameplay premises by creating a family-friendly and a very much over-the-top arcade soccer experience, inserting this into a solid single player adventure, and housing the single player adventure in a Harry Potter meets soccer mash-up.

Academy of Champions: Soccer Review

Cheat Code Central
10 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Academy of Champions: Soccer is not a must-have game by any stretch. However, it is a very competent collection of soccer-themed mini-games. Still, I wish soccer matches weren't quite as simple as they are, but I doubt the intended audience will mind much. After all, both the mini-games and the soccer are brought together quite nicely in the game's Story mode, which will likely keep soccer-loving kids engaged for hours.

Fast-paced soccer fantasy story with Pele and Mia Hamm.

Common Sense Media
9 December 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that the highlight of this exciting, unrealistic sports game is the story mode, which features real soccer stars Pele and Mia Hamm running a castle-like school for budding sports stars. Academy of Champions Soccer is as much a fantasy as any of the Mario sports games, in that supernatural settngs and special powers come into play.

Academy of Champions Soccer

Digital Chumps
8 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Academy of Champions Soccer is a cute $30 package that doesn’t seek to redefine the world of casual sports games, but which is a perfectly sufficient distraction in the hands of the right individual. And, by all accounts, that individual is most likely a young amateur gamer who is enthusiastically interested in all things soccer.

Review: Academy of Champions Soccer (Nintendo Wii)

Diehard GameFAN
5 December 2009
  • Summary: While it’s not tight enough to please everyone, Academy of Champions Soccer is a good enough game of football to please it’s target audience – children – and has enough going on elsewhere to keep them attracted for a long time. There are flaws, but not enough to keep anyone from having fun so long as they can take their heads away from the Premiership tables long enough to lighten up about football.

Academy of Champions: Soccer - WII - Review

GameZone
21 November 2009
  • Excerpt: If the degree of difficulty were to be scored on a scale of 1-10, it would be an easy 10; if scored in terms of player ability, the moves in Academy of Champions: Soccer would make Ronaldinho sit up and take notice. Ubisoft’s new franchise is in the Academy of Champions theme, with the first release keying on soccer and featuring icons Pele and Mia Hamm.
