X360A Review: Pure Football
Written Wednesday, June 02, 2010 By Dan WebbView author's profile
To undoubtedly capitalise on the impending World Cup fever - yes, I have started to tingle with excitement already over the potential of pretty much watching football every day for a month - Ubisoft have entered the wonderful world of football. A barren world in which good and evil fight it out every year for supremacy of the land (you argue amongst yourselves out of which FIFA and PES is the evil one).
Instead of opting to lock horns with the two "big boys" in the genre, Ubisoft have decided to slip down the over-the-top FIFA Street-esque nature of doing loud, in-your-face 5-a-side football with a wonderfully colourful exterior. Excuse the horrible football puns now, but we have to ask, is Pure Football a wonderful recreation of the beautiful game? Or is it destined for an early bath, a demotion to the reserves and a trip home on the night bus?
