Vault of Regret: Sensible Soccer

I’m not particularly proud of the fact that Sensible Soccer and I have never got on. Even our first, rather negative, mention of the series in the form of a now ancient review of Sensible World Of Soccer (which comes close to being filed under “20-something delights in mildly controversial opinion” or “that thing you […]

Vault of Regret: The F.A. Premier League STARS

We mentioned last time the consequences of reckless spending in the budget section of 90s gaming shops: namely, that you end up buying Zone Raiders. Like all bad habits, this one of mine has occasionally been subject to periods of abstinence and, of course, massive overcorrection: I’ll just buy one really good game, like normal […]

World Cup Viva

Viva Football was not a good game. Initially remembered in these parts as a clumsy but ambitious outsider in the 90s football race, our late 00s evaluation indicated that the intervening years had not been kind.

Hello. It’s a return to retro football action with today’s review, of Manchester United: The Double. Warning: contains the embittered ramblings of a Leeds United fan.

Great feet for a big lad

Hi there. We’re at the newer end of what’s permissible on this site today, with a review of the retro-flavoured indie football game from 2011, New Star Soccer 5.

England are rapidly heading for success

Hi there. Tonight we’re back to the early 90s for some long-forgotten football action, with International Soccer Challenge.

It’s in the game

I like football games, possibly more than I actually like football. A couple of matches in the evening after work during the week is one of life’s simple pleasures. But recently I’ve found it difficult to find a footy game I can get on with. Not since PES 2008 (which. depending on your point of […]
