Back in my hardcore game collection days, Xbox edition, I had to own every Sega game. Sega Soccer Slam was a difficult game to find after the fact, but I was eventually able to track it down. And once I had an opportunity to play, I realized what a great extreme sports title it was!
Three or four years ago when my nephew was over we played some Soccer Slam on my Xbox. Well I guess it must have stuck with him because when he was over for a visit, he asked specifically for that game. I wasn’t even sure if it was backwards compatible, so I inserted the disk and wouldn’t you know it, it was good to go! We played a few rounds and had a blast with the over-the-top action, and the over-the-top characters! The game looked great being upscaled on the 360. If you this type of extreme sports action and can track down a copy, I suggest giving it a serious look, even if it just for a 2-4 player party game. You couldn’t go wrong. Never mind your FIFA Streets, this game is the king of the road!
