A portion of a Baxy-Z review:
"Pure Football is all about arcade-y fun, a simple look at the game of football and instant gratification. FIFA has come a long way, but it is difficult to jump in on the series what with all the gadgets and do-das now attached. With Pure Football, though it definitely isn't refined, it presents the kind of gameplay that FIFA has really grown out of in becoming more serious. I feel this game should appeal to casual gamers or football fans looking for a cheap pop, at just £24.99, it's a good deal."
