Were these each re-reviews? If so, any edits to the scores or ranking of them?

Super Sidekicks is my favorite soccer series by far. I'm a big sports fan, but I'm not a soccer guy at all, so the realistic soccer games don't appeal to me. Super Sidekicks is my kind of soccer game - it's like the NBA Jam of soccer games. I came late to the Sidekicks party - I only discovered it when I got my MVS a few years back. My MVS multicart does not have Sidekicks 1 on it, so I've only played Sidekicks 2 and 3. Both are great games, but I do agree that SS 3 is an improvement over SS 2.

The first Super Sidekicks is new. I was able to obtain the Japanese version on AES, and I was surprised how good it was. SS2 and SS3 are re-reviews. I adjusted the second one down from B to B-.

Great reviews. I've been so consumed with Viewpoint, Blazing Star, and Metal Slug 3 I haven't played any sports games lately. These reviews really make me interested to see which of the Super Sidekicks games is the best. I've only played the 3rd one, which was good. These are probably the few times when I'd love to have someone to play against. I played a decent amount of Street Hoop and couldn't stop thinking about how it'd play 2 player. I have a feeling SS1 will be interesting.
