"This game really proves that graphics don't make a game, it's the gameplay."
Olympic Soccer, is a game for playstation made a while back. It has many features that do not come with games these days, such as the gameplay value or the many options and easy options menu. As you can guess, this game is a soccer game. You can choose from any country as a team and can play differen't gameplay modes. One of them is exabition. In this mode, you play 1 game either against a friend or the computer. The game includes many options such as the view. You have many ways the view the game such as a top view, view from the goal, or say a 75 degree point view. This adds the the reply value and variety. This game lacks some essential needs in a game also. One of them is the realistic factor. The game isn't played to much like a soccer game.. it's like a mix of soccer and rugby(which makes it really fun). An example is when you slide tackle. When you slide tackle, you slide about 10 or 20 feet(NOT realistic). This however, ads to the stratagy of the game and fakes, because if you slide tackle, and miss, it will be awfuly hard to catch up to the player when you are in his dust. Overall this game gets a 8. The game is great to play and a must have(even if you aren't a soccer fan).
