How is Active Soccer 2 DX (EU)
? Is it the new Sensible World Of Soccer? Want to know if is fun or not?
This is a 90's styled football game very much like Kick-Off and Sensible World Of Soccer (Walkthrough SWOS
) where arcade is king and simulation was kept aside. This is played in a vertical, isometric, sideways manner bringing the simplicity of the 90's sports games had. There are a few modes to chose, be it a simple exhibition match or career mode.
Active Soccer 2 DX provides a complete career mode, implementing many international leagues, cups and championships. Imagine being the manager of a 5th division English team - you have a budget and your goal is to be promoted to higher divisions, by purchasing players, creating tactics, managing the team and playing real matches.

There are several methods to earn all 10 trophies. Many will unlock in a single match, while others require a little skill i.e. score a goal with a overhead kick; it takes some timing, but nothing impossible.
For the overhead kick related trophy I can only suggest that you familiarize yourself with the game and you find that it'll come naturally. Try to cross from outside of the goalie box to a teammate with the
button. If a player is nearby and in the correct position, hit the button
to score and you unlock this trophy.
The remaining trophies should be earned without any problems.
