Pro Soccer 68 is a football / soccer video game released for the Sharp X68000 and the Nintendo SNES (known as World League Soccer). The game is actually a port from the original Amiga Kick Off 2 which was one of the most popular soccer games of the early 90s.

Pro Soccer 68STORY / GAMEPLAY
This is a soccer game, so no actual story here! The only goal is to ... score goals and win the Championship! Pro Soccer 68 plays exactly like Kick Off 2 and features a full size multi directional scrolling pitch. Both teams play the game strictly according to tactics. The sprites move into position to receive passes and keep the ball under possession. The ball moves ahead of the player and this makes the tackle a matter of skill rather than a choice. Each player on the pitch has a unique combination of attributes and skills suitable for the skill level at which the game is played. It also features new details, like action replays, players with different characteristics, different tactics and a variety of referees that show different mood! There is a selection among four pitches to play and up to 24 international teams to choose. The gameplay is tough and needs some skill as the ball handling tends to be extremely tricky despite the game's simplistic approach to soccer. Other than that, if you finally master the controls (after a number of attempts) Pro Soccer 68 will become a very addictive soccer game, especially when played on a two-player mode!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
Though the game is visually minimal, the graphics look cool and feature smooth and fast animation on the pitch. The action takes place from a top down camera. But, the game's sound is quite poor as it offers only of a few sampled looped cheers (of bad quality that is) when a goal is scored, along with some simplistic sampled sound effects when, for example, the ball hits the goal posts. Unfortunately the X68000 kick Off version follow the original series' full set of wonderful sound effects, but overall it still is a Kick Off! What else could a X68000 gamer ask for anyway!
