Microprose Soccer Tecmo World Cup '93


Sensible Software, The C64's shoot ‘em up kings unexpected­ly transition­ed to sporting kings, with Microprose Soccer laying the foundation­s for them to dominate the football video game world. It's a really fast-moving kickabout in the vein of arcade legend Tehkan World Cup, but with plenty of its creators' signature personalit­y. With tournament­s, choice of indoor (American) or outdoor matches and superb presentati­on, this precursor to Sensible Soccer is a real championsh­ip contender. Unfortunat­ely, it's edged out in a thriller as Tecmo's side view sensation sneaks the win.

Gasps from the crowd as the both Sensible titles bow out of the competitio­n! It was a closerun fight, but Tecmo's arcade know-how sees them edge it. What a final that sets up!
