About

Speedball 2 HD is a modern reincarnation on the classic, futuristic cyberpunk sports game Speedball, originally developed by the Bitmap Brothers and first released for the Atari ST in 1990. A brutal mix of handball and ice hockey placed at break-neck pace. Now Tower Studios, Vivid Games and The Bitmap Brothers have created a glorious fusion of classic gameplay and modern technology to launch this game into the 21st century.

Game DescriptionIn 2326, rival gangs formed an ultra-violent street sports league called Speedball to settle their deadly disputes. Two teams face each other in bloody battles for a steel ball: Nine on nine – in an all-out rush on the opponents’ goal. Almost any malicious move is permitted. The winner of the matches secures supremacy over the city.


The highly anticipated PC revival to the legendary Amiga classic transforms the futuristic game setting with state-of-the-art technology into a high-speed sports spectacle.
There are a huge variety of game modes and options - quick matches, single player tournaments, one-on-one multiplayer and full career mode. Your ultimate mission is to assemble your own Speedball team to win the Speedball Intergalactic Champions League and bring the greatest prize in Speedball back to Earth.

Speedball 2 HD reviews and comments

Anyone who has already pulled Speedball on the Amiga or Playstation will have their bright Joy here as well. :) And in this Version, there are even a few new Challenges and more Teams. The Control by Gamepad feels a bit spongy at first, but you get used to it quickly. I bought the Game myself in the Sale, but for speedball fans it is also worth investing the 8 Euros.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Game: Is a futuristic Football Game without Rules, here you are still rewarded with Points ^ ^. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Single Player: You can either take the Career or just make a quick Match. The Career always plays right away from Team A plays against Team B, you can't say more about that. You shoot the Ball, chain it, and fit everything with just one Button. Tactics is actually only to achieve as many Goals and Fouls as possible to win. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Multiplayer: Unfortunately, the Multi-player is only a Local. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Graphic: The Graphics are well done and look beautiful, the Characters could still have set themselves apart a bit. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Music: Is right to the Game, I would call it a Gedudel. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Control: With Gamepad (XBOX360) it went well to play only the Menu guide is grotty with Pad. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pro/Contra: + nice Game for in between-Arena, players, Jerseys are very boring designed-no Online Mode-play Depth is missing easy-crashes without Reason----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Conclusion: A nice Sci-Fi Football game, which will not inspire more than a few Hours. I wouldn't spend money on it, but a Couple of rounds it was quite nice anyway it gets very fast monotonous and boring. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Summarized: Single player: 4/10 Multiplayer: 2/10 Graphic: 6/10 Music: 2/10 Control: 6/10------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------Game: 4/10
