Review: Sensible Soccer 2006

Hi there. I hope you managed to have a good Christmas, under whatever strange and/or difficult circumstances were imposed on you this year. Sneaking in with one last review for the year, we take a look at the mid-00s attempt to revive a much-loved football franchise: Sensible Soccer 2006. (Yes, it seems the pull of […]

This was down to me more than anything else, and […]

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.

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. One imagines it’s even less enjoyable to play now, with the hideous sight of players’ bulky knees even more […]
