Soccer (or football) is a very underrated sport here in America. Soccer is a sport heavily reliant on teamwork. It's very physical and competitive.
Those are some of the reasons why I love Soccer. Soccer, released March 1st, 1987 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, is one of the first Soccer video games, and it was the best Soccer for it's time. This was also the first NES Soccer game.
Let's put on our uniforms, lace up our boots, and step our on the field and review Soccer.

GRAPHICS, 8: Soccer looks good for 1987. The first screen you see has a huge sign that takes up 60% of the screen that says 'SOCCER'.
Underneath, you have the option for one or two players. Once an option has been selected, you have match settings.
There, you pick a team, set the skill level, and set the half times. Once in a game, players take the field and kick off.
First off, the top of the screen has the scoreboard. It has your score, the time left in the half, and your opponent's score.
The field is just a big flat green field with white lines. The field doesn't have any detail to point out any grass.
The players themselves look good for the time. Each team has different  uniforms. The players running animation is basic.
The goal keeper has a crouching animation, a diving animation, and a standing save animation. He also has a kicking animation.
After a goal is scored, the players will celebrate while running by throwing their arms up in the air. The other team just runs back to center field.
At halftime, player go to the locker rooms and cheerleaders march on the field and dance.
I did not expect to see cheerleaders in the game, but alright.
After matches, the winning team celebrates and it goes back to the title screen.
The graphics look good for it's time, so graphics get a eight.

SOUND, 8: Soccer only has about five songs. The main menu theme, the song that plays during matches, when a goal is scored, a halftime theme, and the song that plays while cheerleaders are on the field. That's it. At least they sound good.
There are sound effects, however. At halftime, after goals are scored and at fulltime, there is a whistle sound effect.
It doesn't sound bad at all. It sounds good, so it gets an eight.

ADDICTIVENESS, 6: Soccer is fun, but the gameplay isn't that great. The B button passes, while the A button shoots.
Aiming your shots are simple. While you are close to goal, there will be an arrow outside the posts. You can use the D-Pad to aim it, and if you aim it away from the Keeper, it'll go in. It's simple, and it works. Dribbling is clunky and awkward.
You can also control the goal keeper. When your opponents have the ball and is near goal, you can control the keeper with the D-Pad.
If they shoot, you have to move the keeper towards the ball. The gameplay is very simple, and it works.
Addictiveness gets a six.

STORY: Soccer has no story, but I assume you're in the world cup finals, and you must bring your county a World Cup victory.

DEPTH, 5: Soccer has two game modes. Single Player and Two Players. It's either Human vs CPU, or Human vs Human.
There are seven teams. USA, Great Britain, France, West Germany, Brazil, Japan, and Spain.
There are five skill levels, and three time options. 15:00, 30:00, or 45:00 halves.
That's all for depth, so it gets a five.

DIFFICULTY, 5: Soccer has five skill levels. Level 1 is easy, and you can score about 10 goals per game. The computer barley even moves.
Level 5 is very hard and if you don't know what you're doing, the computer can score 10 goals on you.
You can find a difficulty that's right for you, so difficulty gets a five.

OVERALL, 8: Soccer is a very simple game that works. It's fun, but it  does get boring after a few games.
There are a nice selection of teams, and simple controls that work fine.
Soccer is for people who like the sport, but other than that, it's good.

Thanks for reading this review, and until next review, bye!
