Not another football manager game, i hear you all cry. Well, go and get a large box of tissues, 'cos that's exactly what it is. international Soccer comes with a list as long as your arm of things that supposedly make this different from the other footy games. The list includes a colour editor (woo!), American championships (woowoo!) and a manager's rating (the train now arriving...!). Excited yet? One thing that does single out international Football from the other squllion football manager games on my desk is the graphics the programmers have included to try and brighten the game up. They aren't exactly arcade quality (well in fact they're just the shirts and shorts), but it's the thought that counts. Something that surprised me about this game is that the character set has been redefined. Not unusual you may say, but in football manager games it is.

I'll tell you what annoys me the most about International Football: the waiting while the computer recalculates everything. I simply hate it. If you feel you need to add another football manager game to the million you already have gathering dust on the shelf then look at this.
