Game Review

Dino Dini's Goal (also know as Goal!) is a soccer game created by the famous British game designer and programmer Dino Dini, author of Kick Off and Kick Off 2. The game was sponsored by Adidas and it was published by Virgin in 1993 for the Amiga and PC. The Atari ST version followed one year later, like the Sega Mega Drive version, that was a bit different and got another name (Dino Dini Soccer).

In 1993 Dino Dini was not working at Anco anymore, that's why he didn't take any part in the creation of Kick Off 3 (that Anco released in 1994). This explains why the fans considered Goal! the true sequel to Kick Off 2 (the most popular soccer sim of the early '90s, before the arrival of Sensible Soccer). The huge success of Sensible Soccer, released in 1992, influenced Dino Dini: Goal! is a bit easier compared to KO2, it's possible to zoom out the view, more or less at the same distance from the field of its competitor and there are now real players name.

Despite this, Goal! was not able to replicate the success that Kick Off 2 had in 1990, Sensible Soccer was unbeatable. But this doesn't mean Goal! doesn't have its fan base. There are people considering Goal! a superior game, more a simulation than an arcade, more challenging and more difficult to master compared to Sensi. The decision is entirely up to you. Go, play and decide!
