Handball 21





Handball 21  


There have been plenty of disappointments in 2020. Sports video games would not go on that listing. I appreciate new and different sports games that have made it to the marketplace. There was all kinds of excitement here at Family Friendly Gaming concerning Handball 21. The only thing I knew about Handball is the game where two people play one on one and they throw the ball off a wall. Sort of like racquetball but with one wall only.

Handball 21 on the Personal Computer (PC), Playstation 4 (PS4), and Xbox One (XBONE) is way different than I expected. There are two teams in Handball 21. We play on a court that is a mixture between a basketball court and a soccer field. There are goals and goalies in Handball 21. There are teams and lines. The player trying to score must stay behind a certain curved line to try and make a goal. Sounds simple right?

The modes in Handball 21 are Quick Match, League, Solo, My Squad, Online Match, Challenges, My Collection, Controls, Options and Credits. Handball 21 is very offensive heavy. I had issues defending in Handball 21 every single game I played. This led me to a lot of frustration and confusion about why my goalie was not blocking the ball even though he stood in the way. I watched my goalie move his leg out of the way and let the other team score.

Even on the easiest setting Handball 21 is maddeningly difficult. I took the best team in the game and lost 9-4, 13-5, and 10-4. Want to know the real kicker about those losses? I was playing against the worst team I could find in Handball 21. How is that even possible? How can I lose that badly over and over again playing the best team against the worst team? I can think of plenty of other sports games that you would need to try really hard to barely lose in that same scenario.

The graphics in Handball 21 look decent. I did not even know this was a sport. I wish there was some way to steal the ball or be more aggressive on defense. The music in Handball 21 is fun to listen to. There are multiple leagues and teams in Handball 21 to play. I am glad I was exposed to Handball 21. Gamers into difficult video games will eat up Handball 21. For me losing all the time is extremely frustrating.
