Street Sports Soccer was the only title from the Street Sports series to appear on the IIGS, the others being Baseball and Basketball on other platforms, including the 8-bit Apple II.

After the game loads, which doesn't take long thanks to it being a ProDOS 8 game, you will be asked if you wish to use a joystick, to which yes would be appropriate if you were to play a two player game. The game can be played only as either a one player game against the computer or human Vs human, with one person on joystick with the fire button being button 0 or button 1 and with the keypad, with shift as the fire button. There are various team configs that can be edited.

The game itself is very easy to play. Fire button in the direction you wish to score a goal makes you kick the ball. Pressing up or down with the fire button passes the ball to your teammate. Goalkeeper functions automatically and you have control over the keeper when he or she kicks the ball back into play.

Street Sports Soccer is only a fair game. Human Vs human sports games can be quite fun, and in this Street Sports Soccer is no exception. The graphics are pretty chunky and the sound sparse, but that's life!
