    This is not something you will play for hours at a time. As a cheap, content-light package, it is most enjoyable in small doses. Still, Soccer Slammers definitely has a spot in any local multiplayer-oriented catalog. If you and your friends are looking for something immensely frantic and easy to pick up and play, then Soccer Slammers is a worthy addition to your library.

    Blocky graphics combine with lighthearted gameplay for what works best as a party game.

    Soccer Slammers is a frenetic arcade football game that's extremely light on depth and content but high on immediate thrills. It's the ideal half-time snack, but it won't sate your hunger for a more meaty football experience. Thankfully, with FIFA 18 already available on Switch a more immersive experience exists, but if it's casual action you're after, this could be the fixture you need.

    Soccer Slammers offers easy to pick up and super fast-paced arcade soccer action. It was never going to rival FIFA in the battle of the football games, but it offers unadulterated short burst fun in a way that its heavyweight rival doesn't.

    Despite its fun art style and great arcade feel, Soccer Slammers doesn’t capture the magic and spirit of the sport it emulates. A lack of depth, an unbalanced system, and a small offering of control takes away from what could be a great little time killer.

    For all its silliness, Soccer Slammers is just too random to be really engaging.

    There are two modes in this game, quick match, where you can play up to 4 players local co-op and World Cup, where you can play up to 2 players local co-op.

    The music is good, the crowd noise is great!

    This game really shines in multi-player. The frenzied game play reminds me of Foosball. This is a perfect game party game for the Switch.

    All in all, Soccer Slammers is an ok football game.The matches are short and given a little time and practice can be very enjoyable. TheAll in all, Soccer Slammers is an ok football game.The matches are short and given a little time and practice can be very enjoyable. The selection of teams gives the game some variety, however, it is obviously a smaller game and at times feels like a cash grab to coincide with the World Cup. I feel like Atooi missed a huge opportunity in not adding online multiplayer. I think if the game had an online aspect, it’s life span would stretch way beyond the end of the World Cup.
