Nintendo World Cup

Retrospective: Nintendo World Cup

Never mind female linesmen, here you can kill people.

Let me get straight to the point: Nintendo World Cup is a football game that allows you to kill other players. You do this by performing a Super Shot at very close range, and it's effective roughly eight times out of 10. Push the magic buttons, watch while the ball performs some loopy multi-coloured firework display, and then wince gratefully as it thuds into your rival's stomach with a sound effect that invokes the Incredible Hulk slipping on a stray rollerskate at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
