First images of Sensible Soccer

First images of Sensible Soccer

You who used to play on the old Amiga should remember the lovely Sensible Soccer, the true footy-king of the last-last-last-last-last-gen "consoles". When I found out a new version was coming to Xbox, PC and PS2, I was hoping that we still would get the fantastic 2D - but in a new, original shape. Well, I can announce I'm not hoping for anything from this game anymore.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Wow...cannot believe this is coming out! Thing is - will it be the same without the classic Amiga joystick?

No, it probably won't, fatsausage, but it's still a wonderful prospect! This played so much BETTER than some of the new footie games, in fact, thanks to actually being able to put the ball exactly where you wanted to.

If it has the management elements of Sensible WORLD of Soccer aswell then this will be a must-have!

It's a shame some of you are hyping this just because it's a classic, it seems to be a very low budget game, destined to flop.

I'll give it the benefit of the doubt, but I highly doubt it'll do well. Who's developing this game?

Press-release:

And it's not just Sensible Soccer's playability-oozing action that's back: Jon Hare, designer and producer of the original Sensible Soccer, has been working with Codemasters' gameplay gurus, David and Richard Darling, on a collaborative game design. Kuju Entertainment, publishers of Tower Studios' Sensible Soccer for mobile phones, is managing development.

Sensible Soccer has always looked crap, this will be no different in that regards. But its gameplay that will shine and this is where it made its mark as the finest football game of all time. So fingers crossed this plays as well.

Not at all, I think it works as a good unique graphical motif to the series. Sensible Soccer itself is a kind of ironic title as the game was anything but!

Kick Off 2 will always be king. Does anyone play sensible soccer anymore? Kick Off 2 has an anual world cup as well as many national and regional competitions. Kick Off 2 Forever!

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's honestly going to be hard to go back to playing it in flat mode. which reminds me, gotta get back to dirt rally in VR (26 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Nietzsche: the driving model is great. but they obviously need to add more content (tracks mainly imo) i'm sure they can find time to make a time trial mode for VR. (29 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog tbh, i don't really sub to these things for the "third party" stuff. it's the exclusives. i did drop from the 4k package to the HD one though. (31 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MikeManiac61: i've either seen or have no interest in those. and looking at bigger lists that seem to be the case with everything that fox has on there. (33 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke The thing is that Hulu, HBO, Amazon Prime... don't have a license for Belgium (and other European countries). (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If Netflix and HBO are smart to keep the competition at a distance, they should work together. Join forces. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Marvel not being exclusive to Netflix. The big shows like House of Cards and OitnB are ending. Luckily the still have Stranger Things as a big hit. (3 Hours ago)
