Game Set and Match is the second of the compilations released by Ocean in oversize boxes that make them look for all the world like a jigsaw. On it are all the games you'd expect to find on a sport tape, such as Hyper Sports, conversion of the arcade ex-favourite. World Series Baseball makes an appearance which I find fun merely for the ads and messages that flash up on the giant video screen. Konami gets it feet well in the door with Tennis and Ping Pong, two great arcade games that are not so great in 48K. Ol' Jonah Barrington's Squash is there too, with its amazing reprosound. There's Pool, Gamester's Basketball is 'OK', but I don't find it follows the blurb very closely. And you can't have a sport compilation without Daley, so Supertest is dropped in. Barry McGuigans Boxing makes a giant leap for mankind. And there's... Super Soccer I'm sorry, but that has let down the entire rating by being just crud.

A strong sports sim with treasures old and new but why so costly? Ten games and more than 20 events.

8/10
