I always preferred the original Speedball...maybe I am alone on that, just think it was more raw and fun.

Myself and Mr Beard are with you there.

Speedball 2 just messed up the winning formula.

It did have a shocking A/B difference though. Someone should fix that.

Ha thanks Steve, glad I am not alone...something about Speedball was pure, simply but total fun.

Speedball 2 added to much, tried to be more like a management sports sim...played it lots like, but always preferred original.

And I preferred the original Xenon too...

OK, you are three then!
I haven't played much Speedball 1 tbh, but over here we treated Speedball 2 as a pure 2 player arcarde sports game. As such it was one of the very best.
