Pure Football – неплохой нишевый проект, который призван развлечь нас (и еще парочку друзей, если играть в online) не хуже любого профессионального симулятора. Нам бы стоило пожурить Ubisoft за откровенные заимствования, но достаточно вспомнить, когда выходила последняя часть FIFA Street – и всяческие претензии к издателю отпадают. PureFootball вышел в нужное время и в нужной реализации, чтобы завоевать сердца если не миллионов, то тысяч поклонников футбола по всему миру.
Pure Futbol is a mess of a soccer game. Its cover claims that an authentic experience awaits, but what's actually in store for players who pick up this game is far from the real deal.
Pure Football may be an arcade take on the sport, but that doesn't excuse its repetitive gameplay and general lack of game modes.
It has some redeeming features and won't be the most depressing footballing experience most of us endure in the next 30 days, but rather like most professional footballers, it would do better to focus more on its football than the surrounding pageantry - and on the pitch it can't even get the accents right.
A bad game with awful graphics, repetitive sounds and a control system that doesn't match this gen gaming standards. A game that soccer lovers must avoid at all costs.
The most telling problem though, is that even when playing with the very best squad of footballers that Pure can muster, it just isn't engaging and fluid enough to be of interest for more than a couple of matches.
Overall, Pure Football is a weak attempt at obtaining the football crown. Whilst it offers a unique experience and some promising ideas and concepts, the over-use of meters, the lack of game modes and the poor implementation of features means the title is one to avoid, even at the reduced prices retailers are offering the game for.
