The gameplay in VR Soccer
is amazingly realistic. As with many first efforts, though, a little tightening up would have been worthwhile. You can trap a high ball, control your passing ability, and switch defenders with some other players. With practice you can get the hang of it quickly, but it's normal to completely lose control when playing for the first time. You'll also find that your goalkeeper has a will of his own, and that your passes tend to go astray, even when your players have control of the ball. The game's best feature is the means by which it shows what your players can do; when one of your players has the ball, shapes indicating which actions he can perform will appear beneath him. Star, circle, and square stand for shooting, passing, and crossing the ball, respectively.
Unfortunately, the game does not use actual league statistics and players' names because Gremlin did not have the license, but the 44 international teams included can be edited. The menu options are very detailed, and allow you to modify everything from player statistics to custom cups, leagues, tournaments, multiplayer modes and much more. VR Soccer
also makes use of many different viewing angles which do a good job of showing the realistic motion of the players (though not as well as in Actua Soccer).
The biggest negative point about VR Soccer
concerns the AI. Once you have mastered the task of controlling the ball, you will score many goals, possibly more than six or seven per game, because the computer-controlled players make lots of mistakes.
To conclude, this is a game with good graphics, even when the players are shown close up, but it isn't very difficult once you understand how it works. For this reason, I give the game a 4, as it is almost perfect. One Direct Link HERE OR HERE
