Dino Dini’s Kick Off Revival
Coming more than 25 years after Kick Off 2, Dino Dini’s Kick Off Revival released earlier this year to provide some old-school soccer gameplay. However, after playing FIFA 17 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2017, and looking at how far soccer games have come, this reboot does not offer what you would want from such a game and the series’ charm seems to have disappeared. The top-down camera angle makes tactical play hard and the gameplay is too tough for players that never experienced the originals to enjoy. It terms of looks, the gameplay isn’t smooth and bugs frequently interrupt matches, making the whole experience look awful. Retro looking games can be fine if they run smoothly, but the style of Kick Off Revival highlights the visual faults and there are more than any game should have anyway.
