Kick Off 2002 Coming in June
12:01 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Kick Off 2002, a fast-paced football (or soccer, as it is known in the U.S. and Canada) game will be coming to the Mac in June. According to an e-mail by IMG reader Danny Dinneed, the game is expected to go Golden Master this month and will be published by Softline Distribution, Ltd. The game is currently being ported to the Mac by Virtual Programming, the same company that ported WipeOut 2097 to the Mac.

Here's more info on Kick Off 2002:

One of the most successful selling football games of all time makes it to the Mac for the very first time, with a whole new look and feel. The Kick Off brand has sold nearly 3.5 million units world-wide over the past 12 years and now for the first time ever Mac owners, whether old or young, can experience a totally different and fun packed experience in football gaming.  What makes Kick Off so exciting is that it will be by far the fastest football game available to play. It throws the player head first into the pace and excitement of international soccer with a sprinkle of humour. Kick Off will stand out amongst other football games because of it unusual control system and playing mode.
Have you been itching to play a soccer game on the Mac? Maybe Kick Off 2002 will help relieve that nagging itch. Stay tuned.
