Well I was bad on the 1st day ...

My v first game was against the man himself Dino Dini!

I lost 2 - 1

but the second day had more wins

I was up against Dino a few more times as we played league then play-offs...

I only made it to the Bronze Cup - comp. but I got to the final of it... and Fluffed it! :) Good fun!

Kickoff 1 and 2 was excellent games, while Kickoff 96 have been contended to one of the worst game ever (example Amiga Power gave it a 1%). Im do read Dino was not behind that one. But nede competion :-).
Greedy Mouse - Karma Miwa - Spot Race - CatchOut - Android Extras - is on a vacation trip, home before end of few days in jan.

He has a deal with Sony to make Kick Off Revival for PS4...

So the KO2WC was great research on what makes KO2 so great...

Its almost a perfect game! Like Donkey Kong - never tire playing it...against humans that is!
