Marcel Desailly Pro Soccer
Who the hell
is Marcel? I can give you the hot tip before I got this game, I sure as heck
didn't know and having played the game I still don't! Now before Nokia panics,
that's not because the game is bad, in fact for a person who doesn't really
like traditional sporting games, this title was very well put together in a
very comprehensive package.
This is where
it get's tough to judge the power of the Chelsea central back powerhouse against the
leviathan that is the Fifa franchise brought to you by Electronic Arts.
first, this is a sweet looking little game with a lot of detail packed into a
really small package. More of a sim in it's nature than the arcade feel of
your other soccer games, this is a game that is really well thought and and
guaranteed to satisfy enthusiasts. Pro Soccer has been developed by Gameloft
who have been behind a number of the hits on this format and certainly get
down and dirty when doing their N-Gage titles, making sure that they are a
force to be reckoned with.
be aware that this game is not one that you are going to get in and start
playing immediately as this puppy needs a ton of button pushing to get the
most out of it. This is because the game wants to get so in depth that there
are multiple ways to just pass the ball alone and you will notice that the
game runs slightly slower than some soccer titles to accommodate the
To vary the
experience of kicking a ball around the pitch, the great thing is that they've
taken the time to make the stadiums appear slightly different. It's a credit
and an innovation given the storage space of the medium, though really
considering the way that portable memory is expanding at a huge rate, it won't
be long before there are games for this medium that are over 500mb to a GB!
feature that will have heads up and looking is the introduction of up close
and personal scenes of the action that do succeed in making you feel a lot
more like you are in the thick of it as opposed to just slapping the buttons
on your gorgeous new Nokia QD, you do have a QD right? Add to the graphics
some awesome crowd audio that do seem to react to the ongame play you have to
be more than happy with the overall appearance and feel for this game.
There will be
fans out there who won't look past the Fifa franchise and that's fair enough
as it's a great series, however I'm here to tell you now that Marcel Desailly
looks a LOT better than it's pixelated counterpart and for overall structure
and depth, this is the superior soccer game.
To sum it all
up, Marcel Desailly Pro Soccer is the best soccer game out there for N-Gage
The Final Say!
