A game designed, apparently, around a vast database of footballing statistics. Like Football Manager it is not a game of graphics and movement but rather of menus and selection.

The trouble is, unlike Football Manager it doesn't crack it as a game. In fact it's barely a game at all - as though someone built up the database of real team performances and then wondered what to do with it.

It may be true that a certain team plays a certain type of game much better than another but simply to be 'given' that factor as a fixed variable hardly makes for an exciting game.

An interesting program for those absolutely addicted to the hard facts of footballing statistics. Otherwise avoid.

FA Cup Games. The game play isn't so hot but it's packed with sporting history.
