Some recent articles about KO2

An Italian one:

And a Norwegian one:

I found them in the referral logs of the "The Heat Is On!" video on Youtube. Each article gave in the ballpark of 500+ hits.

Translation:
Kick Off (2) is a game from the Amiga-age, and simply was an amazing footy-game where your own joystick-technique was way more important than anything else. Ballcontrol sucked, graphics probably ever porer - but entertainment-value was sky high.

I want Kick Off, where we still see thing top-down, and where ballcontrol still i just as hard, in a new version working on modern pc's - and with some bettered graphics.

And then I defo wanna be able to myself choose the ref who always gave yellow cards for fouls. Nothing is more fun then running over the legs of your opponent who's sliding, securing him a card.

Kick Off (2)
Kick Off (2) er et spill fra Amiga-tiden, og var rett og slett et helt fantastisk fotballspill der din egen teknikk med joysticken var betydelig viktigere enn noe annet. Ballkontrollen var elendig, grafikken var kanskje enda dårligere - men underholdningsverdien var helt fantastisk.
Jeg vil ha Kick Off, der vi fortsatt ser ting ovenifra, og der ballkontrollen fortsatt er like vanskelig, i en ny versjon som fungerer på moderne PC-er - og med noe bedre grafikk.
Og så vil jeg definitivt selv kunne velge han dommeren som alltid gav gule kort for fellinger. Ingenting er mer moro enn å løpe på beinet til motstandere som gjennomfører sklitaklinger, for på den måten å sørge for at han får kort!

Nice find Dagh - so they used your youtube video to recall some KO2 memories and seek KO2PC ? And cheers for the norweigan translation Jorn.
