The PVP is terrible, but the single player mode is so enjoyable that I can defintly reccomend it.
First the bad...
In my particular situation I haven't been able to enjoy multiplayer for several reasons. The waiting times are ridiculous, and when an opponent appears, the match is unplayable. The match ends up being very laggy and straight up no fun. I don't play online multiplayer anymore.
Now the good...
If you're a fan of Captain Tsubasa, this game is for you. It covers the Middle School arc, and adds an original story where you create your player. The new hero mode is a delight to play. With several schools you can play with, you can play again... and again... and again.
The game also includes a friendship mechanism in which you can get to talk with other characters in the story, for later on to learn their moves.
After finishing the new hero mode for the first time you get 2 more endings.
Local multiplayer works perfectly.
The game mechanics are very simple and meant to be for an action game. Don't expect something like playing FIFA or PES.
The game is not perfect, but also is quite enjoyable.
If it's still your cup of tea, buy it... when it gets on sale.

Review from Steam


Let it be known to all that I am as biased as one can be. I grew up with the sport football and naturally watched Captain Tsubasa anime since I was able to look at the TV.
Furthermore, I always dreamed of being in the same team as Tusbasa and always wanted an own football team in that universe.
Let me continue with the fact that this game heavily delivers to ALL you fans. I will get as to why in a bit.
Secondly, I shall be comparing this game with another game i like quite a lot: FIFA 08 for the DS. Because both games share a whole lot of similarities and both games are equally fun in SOLO mode as with FRIENDS.
Now, I have been reading on other reviews and I would like to warn all who are friendless (or have anime-allergic friends) that this game is a bit OFF-PUTTING in online mode. Here is why: any game that benefits the lagger more than the skilled player, is a bad multiplayer gaming experience. This applies to this game as well. Tho, I haven't tried the online feature yet, due to the fact that I simply COULD NOT be asked to. I never cared for multiplayer in FIFA games and same goes to this one. For the aforementioned reason. Yet, the rule of thumb still applies: if lag benefits the player more than skill, then you might as well not bother with the online experience and play it with your friends on steam (less lag). Worked for FIFA 08 DS and it works with this game.
So, with the multiplayer out of the way let's get into the real MEAT and POTATOES of this game: the single player. Truth be told, it is just the TOPS. There are some little niggles, but then again where is there a game where there aren't any? So, in short here are some bullet points:
-Story: 2 modes -> Fanservice (non-ecchi kind) and the main story of Tsubasa.
-Customization is the anime version as with FIFA 08 DS: own team creation; logo; jerseys; own character creation, but with more shirts styles and glasses (for some weird reason).
About that HERO mode, because it is where this game truly shines. It is the all 10 school extravaganza story line with your very own character to cream yourself about. If you loved the anime, then this gamemode has its red dot sighted scope aimed right at your Thalamus (brain for all my younger peers). Because it allows you to view each school's struggles and character development in the football fields as well as in the outside life (a bit). HOWEVER, it is needless to say that after 10 runs it might get a bit samey, but nonetheless this is where the game truly shines and where most of the budget has gone into. And it shows!
Now, another good thing about this game is the stat system. In HERO mode, you create and level your own character which then becomes playable OUTSIDE the story line. Which is a bit of a time sink, BUT here is where they nail it: YOUR skills determine YOUR future costum team! So, in other football games you would normally just slap a bunch of 99+ stats on all the bloody skills and call it a day. Become the most OP footballer in the world. But here is the true question: WHERE IS THE BLOODY POINT OR FUN IN THAT? In those games, you would get bored after your Saitama-like power play. THIS GAME - however - allows you to grow each time in a different area and to generate 11 (max 20) playable pawns for your team (or any team if you just switch them beforehand) you desire!
This is good due to the variety of gamestyles you can pick, which is a BREATH OF FRESH air compared to most (repetitive) FIFA games. Whereas in those games you would just slap a 99+ stat on speed and you would be settled, this game requires you to be more strategical about your point distribution in your stats. This can be overwhelming, but do not worry there are plenty of guides online.
For the last part come the last few niggles and info bits:
1-The stamina based gameplay is the tops, but there is no use for switching out players unlike in other football games. Plus, there are no Yellow or Red cards.

2- AI being a load of nonsense in this game
:
The stamina or "spirit" - very clever - depletes but restores during the matches. So, once you have your 11 ALL-STARS on the field and remembering that there are no yellow or red cards, which means you can kick somebody in the toochy for that ball to be yours and the referee will think it is legit... What is the bloody point? They might as well dress up with a cheerleading tutu skirt and some bloody POM POMS for all the help they are for the team :I.
This and the fact that the referee only gives penalties for off-side is a bit of what I like to call a "culture-shock". Since it goes against all my football knowledge of the real world. BUT, this does mean more action in the field, which is a bonus. Plus, you can name your character into somebody you dislike and kick him in his toochy for the ball and laugh at him (in call or on the couch) if that person is sitting next to you.
"10/10; would kick in the toochy again" - Santa 2021.
:
The AI is a load of nonsense. It has 2 modes: busting my bladder hard mode or "don't know how to hold a controller"- mode.
The first one is anything above the 2* rating of difficulty. The AI just KNOWS when you press to dribble/tackle button and will instantly counter that with the respective move. So, you might as well just sprint away and dodge; pass the ball a couple of times. Because it is just far easier to avoid the AI taking the ball away from you after you have had it for 0.02 seconds. And the AI cheats by taking over multiple oppenents and having them coming towards you. Very much like the anime, yes. But I am trying to score and this is my third attempt at this match and I would just like to not be part of your S&M club, thank you very much.
Speaking of S&M group meet-ups outside of quarantine, these also can happen to your own team members. Maybe they just forgot to wish each other good luck and are doing that group YELL thingy, but not during my third-attempt-at-this-rubbish-matches, okey game?
ALL-IN-ALL:
-Buy this game during the sales (summer is best for your free time). It is absolutely worth 25€. The story hooks you in like a powerbait on a fishing hook. You git gut along the story and you get to know the less known struggles of the side characters of the anime.
-Multiplayer: do not bother, unless it is with your friends on the couch or via steam remoteplay.
-Singleplayer: plays like a fighting game but in the football world. Timing; football strats and stat point placement are the key to win this game. Not like most FIFA games where you just pick the "Ultimate XI" or that years most BS team and get the easiest games of your life. Nah, this game is more fair than other football games.
This game has 2 story modes and your usual football game "mini-games".
-Gameplay: again, plays like a action packed football match. With only off-sides as an offence and the referee barely plays a role in this match. Coming to think of it, I haven't seen one at all, so maybe that is why these teenagers are allowed to kick each other in the toochy for that lovely round football.
Stamina/spirit matters only during the match (you can see it as action points for all your moves) and not during half-time break. No reason to switch unless you have evenly good players with different movesets. If that is the case, then it is a good reason. Otherwise do not bother.
Timing, strats and stats are the surname of this game for anybody that bothers "Gitting Gut" at this.
Thank you for those who have read it all :)
Have fun and take care!

This game is just something i continue to come back to, too play the Online might be a little off, But the game is super fun and what you'd want from an anime Soccer game, I hope we got more updates in the future and hopefully an expansion

Review from Steam

Endless hours of fun and entertainment.
Amazing animations with a satisfying feel to them.
A worthwhile story mode with Tsubasa or your own character that involve dramatic events, epic moments, and intense gameplay. There was surprisingly a lot of effort put into this and that deserves huge props.
The story mode can take quite some time to beat on a first run and it also adds its own twist to the anime/manga and just simply expands and builds the universe in a believable manner while respecting the original through its story.
Once you create your own character, you can choose an origin team to play for which alters a lot of the story, characters and moves you get to learn. Talk, play, progress with your team and the friends you make in your playthrough to become one of the best football players.
The game also unlocks many story related movies to view, so you can understand the characters and their relationship better in case you're interested in the universe of Captain Tsubasa.
The music adapts to the match to keep those intense moments going.
Plenty of teams and characters to choose from.
Lots of unlockables.
Incredible fun with friends.
Don't do the ultimate mistake of taking this game too serious.
Don't expect a FIFA.
Some characters are highly unbalanced compared to others - which to me it's just more fun at this point.
Multiplayer is a grain of salt. Don't buy this for that either unless you're playing with someone you know.
Biggest flaw is the fact that your character and team creation slots are very, and I mean very limited.
Leaving some of its flaws aside, this is an unexpected and very underrated gem filled with love and passion by its developers. They deserve the support.
9/10
