Dig out the cleats -- The soccer season hasn't quite come to a close on your SNES. International Superstar Soccer Deluxe ain't FIFA, but it's a respectable game.

Fielding the Choices

This sequel to Konami's last soccer title gives you larger players with more animations, more moves, and lots of new control options, improved defensive A.I., and more stadiums. The 36 international teams come ready to play with no world-league license or actual players.

Controlwise, the action is easy to handle. The learning curve is short, especially if you use the training mode. Unfortunately, manual goalie control is difficult. As play approaches the net, you must control the goalie, watch the radar, track the play, and control defense.

It Takes Tunes to Tango

Graphically, you get large, fairly detailed sprites. Combined with the close-in side view, though, their size makes high kicks difficult to follow when the ball travels off your screen.

Thankfully, you don't have to listen to the salsa/jazz tunes during gameplay. There's a large amount of voice, and the announcer's excitement is contagious. The crowd chants have a FIFA flavor.

International Superstar Soccer Deluxe brings solid play to the match. Soccer fans should appreciate it.

ProTip: Take on the easy teams while learning the ropes.
