Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe is a remake of the Bitmap Brothers classic futuristic handball game on the Commodore Amiga from 1991.
Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe is a brutal game where anything goes, and points are won from knockouts, not just goals. Each team wears a coat of armor and play within a metallic arena where players can pass, shoot and attack, while off the ball the same controls allow tackles and catches.
Points are won by scoring goals, knocking out opponents, and also by hitting bumpers, stars and ramps on the pitch. This gives the game and element of pinball to it, and means that focusing on goal scoring is never enough. This PC version is exactly the same as the original and features the classic sounds and ambiance ("Ice Cream! Ice Cream!") from the original.
Unlike the Amiga version however, Speedball 2 Evolution offers more modes, such Tournament, League and Manager Mode. The controls are a bit awkward - sometimes you don't know which player you are controlling but you can play multiplayer against friends which is great
Speedball 2 Brutal Deluxe is a great version of the classic Amiga game. Whether you were a big fan or not, its still an additive and unique sports game.
