I’m giving a positive thumb up for 2 reaons :
1) I’m happy that a dev choosed to make an Handball game. This sport has been forgotten for too long, especially by big compagnies. I want to encourage you to continue and to make the game even better as I believe it’s the only way to improve.
2) It’s way better than the previous one(s).

REVIEW + GAMEPLAY VIDEOS
HANDBALL 21 does a brilliant job of recreating the awesome Sport of Handball.
The characters, arenas and animations are almost perfect and Graphically I find Handball 21 pleasing to the eye.
A good match full of end-to-end action can be very rewarding and ultimately the Handball 21 experience has made me aware of and appreciate far more the sport of Handball.
Much of what Handball 21 does is spectacular but the game is unfortunately ruined slightly by the collision and push/trip animations which are unbelievably poor. They fundamentally ruin immersion in what is otherwise a fantastic title.
In addition the game (in BETA) did have quite a few logic bugs and crashed only a few times, on the most part the game is very stable and runs well.
The unique control systems and the lack of tutorials will make many new players feel confused, frustrated and lost and only by trial and error can you really learn how to play.
The league is basic plug and play and a good way to Learn The Game.
The single player career is more involved adding a lot to replayability with 3 divisions to climb.
Ultimately it is trying too hard to copy FIFA with their Booster Packs, a feature I dislike immensely in FIFA but at least here it seems to be in-game and not purchasable with real money.
I've never played Handball before & learning the rules and techniques has been tricky.
On the most part I have really enjoyed the experience (although frustrating at many times) and the game could be excellent, if only they could fix the collision and push/trip animations.
