Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

You beat one defender, then another, then another, then another then curled it into the top corner from 37.5 yards out in your dreams! Do it for "real" in Sensible Soccer!

With insane speed, spectacular goals with loads of after-touch, gripping gameplay and a zoomed out camera for the best view of the pitch it's all in the return of Sensible Soccer, coming to PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC this summer.

And on top of everything loved by millions comes new features, including replays with typical Sensible Soccer humour that feature caricatured players with the biggest heads you've ever seen in football!

Inspired by the pixel players with enlarged heads of the original game, this all new version of Sensible Soccer will include fast cutting replays that take you right into the action as your big-headed players, shown in a new 3D cel-shaded visual style, celebrate those outrageous curling goals from 30 yards out in glorious animations that you were always telling your mates about.

The new exaggerated visual style of the game perfectly complements the addictive, super fast kick-about gameplay that's just pure Sensible Soccer.

When the replay's done you're straight back to the match viewed with Sensi's trademark zoomed out camera. The return of a bird's-eye view to football gaming lets you see more of the pitch and provides you with the very best way to execute your passing, dribbling, and perfect finishing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good price, but asks a lot of the player 14 Jun. 2006
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Being an absolute avid player of the original 1994 Sensible World Of Soccer, I was reasonably excited when I learnt that a new version of the game was to be released. Having bought the game and played it, I have to say that I feel slightly disappointed and even let down.

Clearly, and rightly, the game hasn't even tried to boast impressive graphics. Instead, the players in the game have cartoon like features. Initially, I enjoyed this but it soon becomes tiresome and the screen is just too full of colour.

The in-match game play tries to be original but instead I found slightly confusing. It's hard to progress down the pitch quickly because of extremely poor manuvarability of the players and passes frequently go wayward. Shooting is a nightmare and adding curl on the ball requires you to do so by using the right analogue stick. Of course, the high speed of the game has been mostly kept since the 1994 version but this works against you whilst shooting as there is just no time to move your right hand to the right analogue stick. Similarly, goalkeeper kicks and saves requires right analogue stick action, which proves to be extremely difficult and unnecessary.

One of the main reasons why I loved the original SWOS was the aspect of management. Whilst it wasn't 'easy', it was enjoyable and the simulation of match results was realistic. In the 2006 version, I couldn't even find any sort of transfer market. In a Premiership season for example, the matches simply follow on one to another after a simple result and table screen. This was incredibly disappointing.

The names of quite a few teams and all the players involved in the game are slightly wrong due to copyright issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what we remember 25 Jun. 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
To start with what this game is not, it is not sensible world of soccer on the amiga. That game, as mentioned below was quite possibly the finest game on that system, other than Elite 2, and this version has clearly set out to try to recapture the playability and fun of the unrivalled original.

To some extent it does succeed, this is a game that majors' on game play over graphics and i for one found it much more accessible than newer titles, such as your fifa's and pro evolutions, the controls are simpler and seemed very easy to pick up.

For me the best analogy is this game is like Ronaldo in this world cup, we remember just what a great player he was in his heyday, and we can still see flashes of it today, but the older version still takes the new one to the cleaners. Sorry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sensible Soccer is Back! 28 Jun. 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Before I start, arent you fed up of people reviewing games before they have actually played them, anyway, I have played this game!

If you are after a great football game full of realism, stats, hundreds of options and be able to rival that of Pro Evo and Fifa then this is not what your loooking for.

If however you are either after a real fun, quick paced, great goals footie game you can just pick up and play. Or you want to reminisce about SWOS on the amiga then this game is perfect.

It is very similar to the original SS on the amiga but an updated version. Menu systems and humour is the same, top down view of pitch zoomed out playing up or down is the same. Hundreds of club and country teams and players (although named diff due to licensing, ie Rooney is Riinay in game). You can create your own team and name all players etc.

Style of play is the same with fast action passing the key to victory, and great goals being able to be scored with lots of aftertouch applied. Sliding tackles and all set pieces play out just like the original.

There are some down points. The crowd noise is very simple leading to little atmosphere, and could have been updated with the rest of the game. Sometimes the ball can jump into keepers arms (but then it did in original SS as well, but people just dont seem to remember) and the loading times are long, especially for a simple game. However all this does not take away from the great gameplay it offers.

Overall this IS! just like an updated version of SS for the PS2 and if you liked the original series and gameplay is what your after you cant go wrong with this, especially at budget price.

If realism is more important to you though, stick to Pro Evo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast, frenetic, but not the same... 14 Jun. 2006
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes I was among those who geekily lost years of their life taking teams from the old Division Four through to the European Championships, being promoted to England Manager and winning the world cup before starting all over again.

The 2006 version of SWOS is different. And I suppose it needed to look different as the old version looks ancient, although it played easily and was more fun in my humble opinion.

The new version has proven to be very challenging in comparison. No longer am I winning matches 5 or 6 nil. Now i'm lucky if i pull of a one nil victory as the goalkeepers seem to be everywhere you don't want them to be.

What i do find annoying particularly is the insistance of the new "Hold the button down longer for more height" option. Oh come on, purleeaaaase. How many others out there have found 9 out of 10 shots from a distance spiral towards the skies when blasting in a curler from beyond the box? It's just SOOO annoying that my easiest route in the 1993 - 5 versions to goal is now a non-starter.

Fun? A little. Frustrating? Afraid so. It takes long to load too!
