Who the hell needs FIFA and PES when you’ve got Captain Tsubasa to play now? Not me. This humble little “arcade football game”, produced by a tiny team at Tamsoft for a fraction of the cost that EA and Konami’s monoliths are made with, is simply better entertainment. I mean, sure, you can’t stare awestruck at a precise digital recreation of Neymar’s face, but since the real football games haven’t managed to emulate Neymar’s inability to stand up, that “realism” in the face mapping area doesn’t really mean that much, when you think about it. Captain Tsubasa, meanwhile, has real personality and charm going for it. Cooking Simulator VR
Unlike the more serious football games, you won’t need to memorise dozens of control inputs with Captain Tsubasa… which is a good thing. I miss when football games were a simple, clean combination of pass, shoot and tackle commands.

There’s some real energy to the action. Little cut scenes highlight special shots and particularly heroic displays of tackling and passing. The only real hope you’ve got to score on goal is to let loose with one of those special shots, and each time you unleash one of those, you get to watch the goalkeeper desperately try to grind out a save, which may well end up hurling him, ball and all, deep into the net. Coupled with the cel-shaded visuals and character models that are appropriate to the classic anime and manga property, and Captain Tsubasa is quite the audio-visual treat. All that lets it down is some occasionally wonky AI, but it’s nothing that outright ruins the game.
