The Kick Off series dates all the way back to 1989, and back then it was a critically adored smash hit. Well, jump forward almost 30 years and the formula just ain't popular anymore.
Importantly, Dino Dini's Kick Off Revival is seemingly less of a game than the 1989 original. It features shoddy graphics, cheesy music, and (literally) one or two sound effects. Just like its predecessor, Kick-Off Revival has only 3 modes and uses only one button to kick/head/tackle the ball.
Dino Dini's Kick Off Revival is proof that some things are just better left in the past, where nostalgia can gloss over impurities.
