Sensible Soccer makes a return.
Any true gamer will know that graphics do not necessarily make a great game. Sure they can help with the atmosphere a bit, but theres a reason why Tetris is still one of the most played games on a daily basis, why many regard Lumines as the best game on PSP, and why cel-shaded games are admired for their artistim. The origingal Sensible Soccer was released on multiple formats back in 1992 and was quickly regarded as one of the most playable soccer titles of all time. Since the first title there were multiple releases with the last being Sensible Soccer 2000 on the PSOne in 1999 - a title which lost most resemblance to the original both in terms of graphics and gameplay.

The game includes 50 different competitions include World and European Cup events, plus leagues and cups from all the top European nations.
