Before I start talking about this game I would like to tell you that I really love it. When it was launched I spent many sleepless nights only to play this game alone or with some friends, because it is a very cool game, easy to play, with many teams to choose from all over the world. And the best thing is that you can be either player or coach of your favorite team! Sounds good enough? Try it! That is all I can say.
Sensible World of Soccer was made in 1995 by a company called Sensible Software, and this was the second in the series of soccer games. Games in that series are even produced nowadays. This game was one of the first that gave you an opportunity to play or manage your team in the same game, so this is an update with many management options that open a lot of new perspectives, but in a very easy way to learn it.
If you want to play with your favorite team that really existed at that time, you can edit the real players’ names, the real name of the team, and choose appropriate tactics. You have more than 1000 teams at disposal. Can you imagine that?!
This game gives you a chance to play with a league team or with a national team. You can also save the best goals your players scored and see the highlights of their actions.
Let us begin. First you can choose to play either 3 minutes or more. You can play on pitch type (it is very hard to play at the frozen field), and you can decide to put all teams at the same difficulty level or make different conditions for them.
You can try to buy the best players on the world, but to do that, you need money, which is very hard to earn; you need to play against strong teams to attract more visitors to your stadium or you can try to play all competitions to receive a good prize at the end. You can also play using a tactic that exists in the game or create a new one. Even today when I play Sensible World of Soccer I select the option to play an entire career as player manager. The career goes to the maximum of 20 years and every season is different!
After all what I said, it is your turn to play. And I promise you, after you finish some games you will play it more and more because it has very good gameplay! I can claim that this was the best game at the time it was made. You can rest assured that Sensible World of Soccer is the greatest soccer game ever made. Consequently, it has been released to every platform available.
I give it a rating of 5 stars.
This game needs DOSBox to run.
