As a fan of handball I really looked forward to this game, the result was pretty much what I expected.
Handball Challenge 2014 Offers great atmosphere and several different teams from different leagues and real-like commentary.
And that's about it, gameplay is extremely buggy and stuttering, sound effects aren't fluid at all and yet the "real-like" commentary even feels like the commentator is extremely bored, like made with google translate and says obvious and weird things in random places. Sound quality is really bad. Animations and models are really rough and it makes the game really annoying to play when hands and ball aren't in any kind of synchronization.
This is great idea, but lack of resources and knowledge ruined this game without mentioning the price.
Still if you're hardcore handball fan and you wanna get control of your favourite team, yes, you can buy this. In some places bugs are fun and the slow motion replays adds great ability to watch the most epic/weird goal.
