And we all know how they made that sound when they made the game, don't we :)

My first memory of ko2...

We'd been playing Kick Off to death, and my mate, the one with the Amiga, was all fired up, showing us about Ko2 in the amiga-mag. And I still remember us loading the game for the first time, looking at that Oracle Splash-screen (whoops) :lolo:

I think we played it at least a week before we discovered Aftertouch in the options...

But after that, we was hooked. I'll never forget scoring almost from midfield, a bit on the right, about the edge of the circle, with Scott; that fantastic flow the ball got, gliding in at the upper right corner... Just wow... After that, it was Bring on the Lobs!

Scotts goals....thing of
Legend! He could hit such weird angles (mostly at the corner flag)

I remember trying for ever a goal like you talk about except i wanted bottom corner ;)

I could, but Alkis would get to know it as well, and that would spoil the fun...

My first KO2 memory is about frustration. It was just too fast, and I really thought I had wasted 3990 pesetas (24 euros today) in a stupid impossible game. I spent several months playing at 50% speed, to get used to that diabolic game.

I was far to know that, in many senses, this game would change my life.
