Soccer Slam for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
Developer Visual Concepts' first soccer game offers three-on-three action with a choice of six exotic teams: El Fuego, Tsunami, Spirit, Volta, Sub Zero, and Toxic. Offbeat characters represent each squad, from a kilt-wearing Scotsman named Angus to a purple-skinned medicine man known as Djimon, each individually rated in speed, hitting, passing, shooting, and stealing. Four modes of play include Exhibition, Practice, Quest, and Tourney. Exhibition lets players choose the teams, one of nine stadiums (three are initially available), and both field and weather conditions. Practice is a tutorial designed to familiarize players with the controls, while Tourney is a five-day event with all six teams playing each other in a round-robin format. Quest is the heart of the game, consisting of a full season of competition as players attempt to win the coveted Continental Cup.
