Lowdown: The PAL-version cover for RedCard Soccer tells you everything you need to know about the game: jostling for position, as one player grabs the nuts of the opponent behind him, and not in a necessarily friendly manner. The opponent winces and looks to be releasing a (presumably low-pitched) yap (the North American version features Brian McBride doing Brian McBride things-yawn.) The game's dirty and bathes in that fact. Players take opponents out with shin slides, flip them up into the air with vicious trips, and punch, punch your way to that next golazo. This is soccer the way Vinnie Jones intended it.
