Yup that'd be me. How did you find that then Sid, it's years old?
<edit> just read your post again, good old Google eh :) </edit>

See my article about the World Cup in Holland 2003 :)

And our latest issue, #84 as well. Not that there's anything about KO2 in this of course but I may as well pimp it whilst I'm on here :P

I'm glad you posted here, hero-hont! Welcome to the forum btw. :) I hadn't read this review before...

The crowd roar, the players file out from the tunnel, the ref blows his whistle and – bang! The pitch starts whizzing around the screen like it's been hit by an earthquake. The ball pings from man to man – a bit of swerve here, a lob there, a pixel-perfect pass to a winger flying down the touchline. A smack of the button sees the action change direction – both players intense with concentration, the game zooming along. A foul! The crowd roar once again – a player gets booked, yellow card. Arse.

Off again. Bish, bash, bosh. A cross-field ball picks out the lone attacker, a quick joystick-prod controls the ball, and – wap! A stinging shot crashes off the post. It flies out – smash! It's in! GOAL!! Keeper never even saw it. 1 - 0. Time off the clock – 30 secs. Players jump and roll in celebration. Back to the centre circle… kick off. No. 9 jinks past one, and another… blasts a long, arcing shot from 40 yards. “No chance from there…”. Wrong. GOAL!! Time off the clock – 40 secs.

This is a game of KO2 between two decent players. You can't really call it the beautiful game. It’s football played to a techno beat. As a rush of adrenalin, there's little to touch it. After two 5-minute halves, your brain is fried, you need to rest, but you can't. One more game. The goal, this time – revenge. 13 years on, the appeal is still very much alive.

Great read, agree with it all, nothing beats 2 rivals slog it out for hour on end with no sign of the last game approaching and time flying by, the birds start to sing and you know its time to go home......until tomorrow then. :D
