A Look At Speedball II

Summing up Speedball II is an almost impossible task. It retains the basic gameplay of the original, but expands on practically every part of it. In fact, there is absolutely nothing to fault in Speedball II, the people involved have produced a sequel which far exceeds any of my high expectations and, in the process, have created a game which is without a doubt a classic.

With these words, in March 1991, CU Amiga granted the game 96% as an overall score and a Screen Star Award. Once again, the incredible Bitmap Brothers managed to produce a game that would raise the level of the software to come in order to keep pace with those remarkable coders.

Fast and brutal action were the keys to success. High playability and a well-conceived futuristic visual made the rest. After all these years Speedball II remains a timeless classic, well worthy of your time. Not having a 9,6 to among my pictures, I will eagerly promote it to a full 10. Enjoy!
