If you want a game that accurately depicts the feeling you get when you step out onto the field and get ready for a game of the world's most popular sport... don't play this game. As one of Nintendo's first sports games back in 1985 Soccer doesn't have much going for it. It is a very basic game of soccer and it doesn't hold a candle to any of today's serious soccer titles. It's fun to play for awhile, but if you crave realism don't even bother.

Music

The music is credited to a Nick Kondo, which is just an Americanized alias for Koji Kondo who wrote music for many of Nintendo's early games. Like most of the early NES games, the music leaves much to be desired. There are only six tracks and most of them are just simple little ditties. Nothing to write home about.

Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
