Sega Soccer Slam for the Gamecube is not your normal run of the mill sports title but instead is something a bit different and interesting. It's a wacky title which is great fun. So if you're bored with your other sports titles then I suggest trying this entertaining game.
As far as the gameplay goes for this version there is plenty of action and fun. All the matches you play will be four vs four players, including a goalkeeper and three players you can control for yourself. There are many varied power ups you can use during the game such as bursts of speed, flying up in the air in slow motion and also many charge ups. All of this helps to create and maintain the wacky atmosphere in the game. There are six teams to choose from which each represent a different country with varying attitudes.
There is also a season mode which is a nice feature to the game and you travel round the globe to face different teams and then you go to the play-offs to try and win the championship. By doing this you can raise money and unlock concept art and also new powerups to aid your team and their abilities. In addition to all this there are several mini games you can try your hand at to earn extra cash. There is an exhibition mode for playing with friends. Also, there is a tournement mode and a practice mode to hone your skills.
The graphics are cartoon like and bright and colourful. They really add to the atmosphere too. The sound is good too, without ever being spectacular.
If you want a sports game with a bit of a difference and enjoyable too then look no further than this title. If you want realism then this isn't for you but otherwise I highly recommend it as you won't be bored.
