Still reckon it'd play a better game of football than England did last night.

I liked DD's introduction to the project but I'm disappointed that it's going to be a Sony exclusive (but kudos to them for giving him a free dev kit).

I may have to rethink the Vita. The main thing that puts me off getting one is that it's history on then high street and I wonder how long it's going to be before Sony pulls the plug on online support for the system but if the indie business model is working for them it may be around for a while.

[facepalm] Didn't read the whole thread before posting and now realise that it's been released and that it's apparently not very good :oops: .

That's not saying much. The wheelie bins in my street would play a better game of football than england did last night.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Interesting seeing Dino's reaction. I never paid attention to his barny with Stu Campbell back in the day but the way he's handling this isn't great.

His whole defense seems to be 'I said the whole game wasn't finished yet' and 'well people on Twitter really like it' as opposed to admitting he released a rushed piece of cack.

They could form a decent wall anyway. Was so close to buying this then read the thread. Saved me £8.

His Twitter account is just him seeking out any positive comments and retweeting them while inferring that any bad comments are because reviewers don't know how to play the game. He's entirely on the defensive with that stuff. Is also blocking a lot of accounts that aren't positive and apparently trying to take down negative vids on youtube. There's an account called Kick Off World who are following it more. This video from Dino was quite telling.

https://twitter.com/KickOffWorld/status ... 6760756224

The Metacritic round up for this game is legit brutal - http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstat ... ff-revival - and the only really positive review I saw for it gave it 8 for sound and graphics and 10 for playability. The sound is, at best, a 2. It's a game devoid of any atmosphere. It plays worse than it sounds.

Damn, it's entertaining when a dev goes mental because people don't like the product. :lol:

I haven't played it as don't have a PS4, however kickoffworld are doing the opposite of Dini and told retweeting any negative stuff, which is based to a previous falling out they had, Kickoffworld are/were making their own game and using the kick off name and from what I can tell they got in a spat with Dino Dini.

The other day they had a video of some bad keeping resulting in a horrendous own goal, however they post it again saying the game was terrible because the players on the other side celebrate the goal even though know of them scored it. Which just seems incredibly petty from them.


Addition: I think they might actually be linked to that DX soccer 2 game which is decent and has a nice old school feel to it, although it's also lacking polish.

kick off world make after touch soccer which is a port of ko2 they employ steve screech who fell out with dino after ko2 thus dino made goal and steve made ko3, basicly kow dislike dino for no reason.

yes kor has bugs and missing features but dino admits it was released early but he's been workin on patch 1 and hopes to support the game after this.

with all that said as a swos fan I still love kor as do my fifa friends I got to test the new build and its great it even has a full tutoriial now. i like it but others may not fair enough, but kow are trolling so n sos.

Doesn't Dino have a history of ranting at anyone that doesn't agree with him?

Kick off had lots of bugs.

Does he really think it is OK to release an unfinished game and not understand why people think it is awful?

to be fair he has explained he had a set dead line to meet and he had to work day and night on the patch to adress problems and having tested the new build it's better now plus hes working on new features

It's a mess. If it's not finished you shouldn't release it. It's the equivalent of us releasing an issue of retro gamer with 3 articles in it and promising the rest at a later date.
