The Euros: A Brief History

It’s the Euros! The final! And England are in it! As usual, the real football created a hankering for some virtual football, and so, in time-honoured tradition, I dug out whatever modern-ish football games I bought last time there was a tournament on and failed terribly at them. I’m not sure when exactly I went […]

The FFG Football League

Some dull site trivia for you: the early incarnations of FFG didn’t have a dedicated sport section. Although we’d resolved to make sure we found space for a review of Puma World Football, it was buried rather incongruously among either the action or simulation titles. This was down to me more than anything else, and […]

Review: FIFA 2000

Hello there. We’re going back to the 90s for some football action today, with a review of FIFA 2000.

Vault of Regret: Sensible Soccer

I’m not particularly proud of the fact that Sensible Soccer and I have never got on.
