Having already done a reasonably good job of knocking out two very playable indie sports titles in the Blast series the folks at Unfinished Pixel have stepped it up a notch to take on a bigger team sport, soccer. Rather than shooting for the more stripped down arcade experience with a limited team Super Soccer Blast features full-sized rosters and that will generally mean you’ll need to try to come to grips with ball movement for success rather than sticking with a core ball-handler. While the controls are relatively simple and work pretty well I’ll admit that your teammate AI is perhaps a little unreliable, often making effective passes tricky but more critically not typically being in good positions to capitalize when you’re trying to set up to score. All that said, I’d say that on average I wouldn’t consider its shortcomings a killer, you can still compensate and find success. Just bear in mind that this isn’t a big-budget outing and in general that its degree of polish and refinement are roughly in line with its budget-friendly price tag.
