Neo Geo Cup '98 Plus Color (Neo Geo Pocket Color review)

Developer: SNK
Publisher: SNK
Released: 1999

Neo Geo Cup '98 Plus Color is a football game that's part of the Super Sidekicks series.

+ Does a good job of explaining the strengths and weaknesses of each team, and allows you to customise match tactics.

+ Story mode continually rewards you with points that you can spend to upgrade your team, which adds longevity.

- Camera is too zoomed-in for strategic play, as your teammates aren't usually visible which negates the passing game.

- Auto-player selection feature doesn't work properly and it often refuses to choose the teammate closest to the ball.

- Opponent's goal is only seen by dribbling halfway into the 18-yard box, so you can't aim shots based on the keeper's location.

- CPU is frustratingly aggressive, and not only are they always in the vicinity of the ball, they can also outrun it when it's kicked!

- No real difference between each team, as Brazil players seem to have the same stats as Japan, despite what the game says.
