Captain Tsubasa


Tecmo's final cinematic soccer-sim makes full use of the Mega CD's capabilities
for animation and CD audio.

The game opens with a great anime style credit sequence which also serves as a prologue to the Story mode. There are loads of game modes including a two player option but the main game, as I already mentioned, is the story mode.

This mode takes the usual 'cinematic soccer' gameplay and seamlessly mixes it into an animated story just like one of the OAVs! While the action has barely changed since the first game six years earlier combining it with a fully animated storyline really makes it seem new and exciting. This is probably what Tecmo was aiming for from the start.

The Mega CD Captain Tsubasa features great artwork, more interactivity and a true feeling of taking part in an anime. Tecmo's final Tsubasa game and definitely the Captain's best finest!
