Summary: Sensible soccer is fast and intuitive.The action is non stop.The controls are simple and easy to use. The team and player names are different because codemasters didn't have the license. It's a good fun game to play with friends. Creating chances is relatively easy. Creating and playing a custom team is enjoyable. Rewards given for winning cups and leagues are player improvements.
Brilliant game that just needed another month of bug testing

Summary: I was a really big fan of the Sensible Soccer series in the 90s and bought this game solely on that kudos. However, I was bitterly disappointed by this modern remake. The pros are the graphics... it looks exactly the way a modern Sensi should! The players have been given the potential for personality (many styles to choose from) and the pace of the game is just about right. Unfortunately there is much to say about the broken parts of this game.
Summary: Sensible Soccer, the classic football game. Hours, days and weeks lost in the days of the Amiga. Simple yet compeling gameplay, only Pro-evo. beat it. Then it is released, updated, for the Xbox. And oh no, what have they done, what a mess. Okay for half an hour, but then you begin to remeber the original (and yes I still have an Amiga and yes I do occassionally still play it, so it isn't rose tinted specs.) and you realise that they have sullied the name of a classic.
Summary: I loved this game starting from the Amiga 500 days, so I thought I would give it a go on the Xbox. Quite disappointed and here are the reasons for that: 1) This game has no special features, basically all you can do is play in the world cup or European cup. 2) The game has no difficulty level, from turning it on I had won the European Cup with ease with scores as high as 6 - 1, 7 - 1 etc. Very easy, I expect a game to give some sort of challenge.
Summary: I loved the Sensible Soccer games in the 90's. Huddled around the Amiga, friend against friend, frenzied cries of 'good tackle' and other entendres, to the victor a bottle of beer, to the loser the boobie prize of doing the dishes and the ridicule of fellow flatmates. More than a decade on the flatmates have long gone. So how does the game play? It plays very much like the original.
Summary: Was brought up on games like Sensible World of Soccer 1995/96 so was v eager to see what this is like - bought it this morning and within the space of an hour had won the world cup as England scoring 12 goals and conceding NONE. its far far too easy, shoot from anywhere in the box directly at goal and the ball will go in everytime, to tackle you only need to bump into your opponents players meaning you will win the ball everytime.
