PC PS2 Xbox

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.

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!

    nostradamus massive downgrades coming from the staples achieved w/ the Halo 3 sandbox/physics, with Dice/BField it should never be a trade-off, ony thing they should be trading its engine if it isnt up 3 the job (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus tech? I dunno, go get some insight of Activision (the good input, not the misogyny), all they COD devs make evident generation leaps tech-wise. Do they keep being the same core IP? I think so. (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus so Halo must be thet bottomb of the barrel FPS to keep its identity. Add some negligible subsurface scattering reflections or some other tech only possible now and call it the day copy/pasting the ol (3 Days ago)

    nostradamus engines. I mean, If you can have a PS3 Ratchet & Clanck that looks like a vaseline ps3 game, and a PS5 Ratchet&Clack that looks like a goddamn next-gen game, why can't Halo Evolve - Ugly FPS Seal™ (4 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo Infinite sure is one ugly damn game. Pretty obvious nothing is going to massible change if the Ip doesn't die and start from the ground up with another publisher/dev that doesn't retread the ol (4 Days ago)
