The popular PC game of the same name is soon to be released on the Genesis. This cart has you dashing around the playing field after the ball trying to get it past the goal post. This is obviously not as easy as it seems. The other players can attack your teammates at any time! This doesn't mean you cant attack-of course. Before the game, you can adjust your stats and modify to make your strengths. Time to rock!

People say:


While I give this game a couple of points for at least trying to give us something new and different, the execution and control just don't deliver. The futuristic sport doesn't really get you excited in the way a football title might even though it's a nice try it comes up short.


Speedball 2 is a challenging futuristic soccer/rugby-type game. To me it is a lot like Power Ball and while the action is intense and the game play good, there is not that much difference between the two games. Needs more color and sound otherwise it's OK.


Speedball 2 is an OK computer game to port over to the Genesis. But the game still plays like a computer game and that isn't too great. The graphics are yet good yet very choppy and the there isn't any background music. Not one of the better sports game available.


Speedball 2 - another name for a fast sphere of energy that you chase around, smacking opponents and laying them out on their respective duffs. Sound exciting, probably not, because this has been done too many times before. Oh well, creativity is hard to find.

Game Reviews

It's a blend of football and soccer with some hard hitting action. Pick different players and teams. Score big points on this one!

There's a problem with this game. It installs fine, but when you run it, you get a "WARNING: checksum incorrect" and a hard reset.
