Kick Off 2 Matrix video

The video begins with two goals that show how easy it is to shamelessly exploit the absence of the accidental slide feature. When you are not worrying that your player will slide, you can keep the ball on your feet for as long as you want. Expect me to do that all the time if the removal is voted for, so don't say I didn't warn you.

Next you have two great defensive headers, followed by a goal that never went in and a few nice goals. Finally, the video ends with a killer corner routine.

Great stuff!

The hugely dramatic music in the start provides a funny contrast to the hilarity of a bunch of Amiga players chopping away at the human player in slow motion to no avail.

My favorite goal is the one starting at 0:42. It's an impressive final twist to force through the goal after the initial diagonal run might have been slightly off timing (not really sure about that). Also the header at 0:53 is a pleasure to watch, diagonal jump and instant change to vertical direction before hitting the ball.

Wow! This Matrix music is a brilliant match to your KO2 action! 8)

Personally I much prefer seeing players exploit valid gameplay rather than obvious bugs so this is great! Having said that, I'm sure better defences that the cpus will have something to say about this move! :) At the very least, you have demonstrated how this bug fix has opened up new gameplay possibilites! 8) Contrast this with the accidental/unintended slide bug which invariably leads to the ball going out of play/play being stopped due to foul.

Back to the video.... fave clearing header 0:21, fave matching music to action 0:40 and fave goal 0:45. I like the way you pack a variety of action in - your videos are somehow getting better and better!!!! 8) 8) 8)

You can't fool me Alkis - that last goal was accidental ... you missed a sitter! ... nice reactions to correct the mistake though :)

I'm interested to hear Gary's reactions to your first couple of goals with autoslide turned off ... or shall we call them auto-goals?

Nice skillz! Keep practicing and one day you could be champ ;)

I've experimented with the goal you've shown and as far I can see it's always been possible. The main difference is historically, one of the chasing pack would try his luck and autoslide in.

Of course it was accidental, it was scored by Panayotis! :lol: It would be cool if we could score that and mean it, though.

Alkis, if this were to happen to me in Athens I would love every minute of it! Just as in real life where rules are tweaked to benefit the attacking player to make the game even more exciting, Kick Off 2 is now no different. :)

Love the video too. That goal at about 0:42 is crazy! Makes me wanna play KO2 again :)

I don't suppose you checked the goal height for this apparent non-goal, Alkis ?

Btw I like the way you remember to remove the scanner when recording your replays - nice touch. Wish I could remember! :lol:

Great video and great goals!

I'm sorry Alkis, but those two goals show only how stupid is the IA! I'm sure that humans can steal the ball! :wink:
