Fever Pitch Soccer (aka Head-On Soccer) is a soccer game developed and published by U.S Gold for the Megadrive, SNES and Atari Jaguar in 1995.
STORY / GAMEPLAY Like in any other old-school soccer game, there is no actual story here. You just choose your favorite team and start your streak playing matches in soccer stadiums from around the world, to win the World Championship title. The odd (and funny) thing with this game (and the detail that makes it different from other soccer games) is that you can easily hold the ball in your possession and you can actually commit lots of fouls without being whistled (or even warned) by the referee. This means that there are only three "rules" here: shoot, score, win!
GRAPHICS / SOUND The game's graphics are presented in isometric (pseudo-3D) perspective. The stadiums are greatly done and well colored and the sprites (the soccer players) are moving nicely and fast around the pitch.
NOTE The sound in this game is a typical "soccer game sound" with crowd wows plus some in-match sound FX (ref whistling etc). Of note: We expected a better SNES version (at least compared to the Sega Megadrive) due to its hardware superiority but, Fever Pitch Soccer is almost identical (with some minor differences in the sound FX).
