You get the Sweet Tooth truck by getting one win, in any game mode, with each and every car- in case you didn't already know!

UHHHHH you got sweet tooth, you bastard.

I saw someone playing with him last night and someone asked him how to pop it, but his answer was different from yours. So I gotta keep unlocking cars then huh? a got a few last night, not sure how many more I need.
I'll check in about 2 hours when I get home :)

Yeah that is definitely the way to unlock Sweettooth, I thought it was to do with your rank at first but after winning one game in each car once (I think there is 10 in total) it unlocked

I unlocked sweettooth last night I did it by getting a win in all the cars in Exhibition, apparently winning online matches doesn't count as wins with the cars lolololol go figure.

I've been a little hooked on this game on PC. Maybe a lot of our forum trolls have been too :D

http://www.twitch.tv/ecole93 was streaming world tournament matches, some of the best players I've seen.

I played it a bit today. I thought it was boring too. I played against the AI on normal difficulty and it's so easy to win. All you have to do to score a bunch of easy goals is to boost right at the start and hit the ball first. If you aim it right you'd get a goal right at the kickoff more often than not. I was winning games like 11-2 or something like that. I guess it would be different against human players, but I'm not too interested in the game.

Try it on Pro or All Star difficulty, you can't score goals from the half way line off the start anymore, or at least only on rare occassions

Looks badazz but I not sure if i should buy this game :)

I mean how can this stay fun after 50h or so.... It seems too simple to me to stay fun for long.

I guess you'd be wrong then :)

You need only play it for 20 hours for it to cost $1 per hour.



Here's another vid

Me and some buddys got hooked by this little game, too. Its the c'mon-just-another-one type of game. Cool physics, nice graphics, smart design. You feel how you get better and better at it and that is fun. Love it!

Another arcade gem on my HD! Got it completely for free as a Plus-user on PSN some weeks back.

Anyone else think the orange site of the Coliseum is a bit too bright? ;)

Completely agree with Fong. Its always: "Just ONE more game!" And then you end up with 27 more games :very_drunk:
People that think its boring havent played this game long enough to have entered the upwards spiral of becoming better, learning new ways to score or pass. Thats the main aspect of the game that keeps me addicted, the will to improve and test out new moves.
They havent figured out the little differences between the cars' handling models and hitboxes, they havent played it with friends and developed new strategies to beat tough opponents.

Thats some of the reasons why l love this game. Its so easy to play, yet so hard master.
There's several types of players you encounter online:

1. I like to call them Chicken. Players that chase and kick every ball at all costs. No sense for tactics whatsoever.

2. Advanced. Players that certainly figured out the basics like passing, goalkeeping and staying away from some balls.

3. Experienced. Players that figured out that aerials are the key to win matches. They know very well how and when to pass, when to leave the ball and they also use aerials to goalkeep.

4. Pros. Players that hit nearly every aerial, be it to pass or to score. They developed advanced techniques and strategies with their friends. They are masters at goalkeeping, passing and scoring.

5. Aliens. Mostly Veterans from the predecessor SARPBC. They mastered all kinds of aerials, masters at goalkeeping, they have fleshed out tactics and can do things with the ball you havent even dreamed of.


A little example of what an Alien player can do. Uploaded this a few weeks ago, when l still was between a chicken and advanced ;) l couldnt believe what l was seeing...

Ha ha yes, the 'chicken' people are common, reminds me of the sketch by comedian Harry Enfield- skip to 2:03 for the bit I mean, the rest of the video is funny though too :)

At the time I realized I left pool 1. and entered pool 2. (where I still reside imo), I almost kicked myself for being so dumb for too long :D Thats the learning curve I guess :rolleyes: But that was the point where I realized how rewarding this game can be and hence I got hooked.


@KK78:
The video gave me a good laugh man :D The chicken parallel is epic!
