PC Gamer: Football Superstars review

PC Gamer: Football Superstars is an ambitious attempt to make football into an MMO. Rather than controlling an entire team, you’re in charge of an individual footballer, joining in games with other players online.

On the pitch, it’s a strange hybrid of sport and team-deathmatch: you create your odd-looking character, select your team and hop into a game. In the starter amateur matches, the charm isn’t immediately apparent, as everyone will try to be as individual as Ronaldo. They’ll fail. It takes time to get used to the subtleties of controlling just a single player, understanding how the angle of the mouse selects the shot distance or when best to use your buffs (360- degree spins, feints). (Football Superstars, PC) 58/100
