Call Yourself a Ref, 5 Mar 2011
This game is very good on the points of law, and uses real video footage from games in England for the action sequences. The action sequences are generally shown from a distance (presumably so you can get a feel for play), and because the video screen is only 1/3rd screen size incidents can be difficult to see. The ability to enlarge the video screen would greatly enhance the product (perhaps you can but I haven't found out how).
When you've made your choice of answer, you get an explaination of the correct decision if you were wrong, and also get a chance to rerun the video. The incidents are shown in real time, and there is a time limit for you to answer, so for anyone who hasn't had the joy of refereeing, you get an idea of how quick a decision is needed, though you may have problems in a game if you took the full time allowed.
If you want to improve your knowledge of the Laws of the Game, become a referee, or are a level 7,8 or 9 ref, then this is a good way of enhancing your knowledge, if the videos were closer, it would also be good for level 6's. For anyone else interested in football, it could be a bit of fun, when there isn't a game to watch.
