Its not bad. Couple of glitches in places. Online play though everytime i've been live theres no one about to play a match. I've heard alot of people say this as well.

My tag is weaponx031277 if you fancy a match.

It's been Lag City when I've played it. Still fun though when it does work. Even though I do get my arse kicked.A lot.

I couldn't agree more.

I was expecting the Amiga version, but after speaking to Daz he informs me that it's a Megadrive port.

:(

It runs far too fast, and the sound is crap.

All I wanted was a port of the Amiga version. Surely I wasn't asking too much.

Ouch :(

My mates and I were all so disappointed. The one game we'd been waiting months for and it turns out to be complete tosh.

I hope for the sake of a close friends sanity that Sensible Soccer turns out ok. He'll be devastated if it's not.

i dont think its too bad. i too was expecting the amiga port (ahhhh, the amiga version. STILL my amiga holy grail! and in this sort of race theres no silver medal for finishing second.........sorry! went all sean connery there!!) but this one's not as good as the amiga version. its missing that sort of something. its got the yells of ICE CREAM, ICE CREAM, but its not got that pull the amiga one had.
i'd say 69% (ooo-er!!!)
