That's done it, I've cracked! AAARGH!!! Do you have what it takes to become the greatest manager in British Soccer and lift your team to Super league glory? Well, to tell you the truth, I really don't want the chance, and I'm sure 99.9% of the readers aren't that fussed. This looks exactly like all the other Cult football games, and is probably programmed by the same people (you would never guess!). And it is quite badly programmed. The program itself may be a masterpiece of machine code (if it is in machine code - I have my doubts), but the sloppy way the game loads, and the normal INPUT statements used to enter information, immediately put off anyone who knows what he or she is looking for.

If this game wasn't bad enough already, the amount of time you have to wait while the computer calculates all it's bits and pieces is simply ridiculous. Once you get the 'PLEASE WAIT' message on the screen, you may as well go on a two week cruise! By the time you get back it may have just finished initialising, and you can start the game.

There is one thing in favour of British Super League. There are graphics in the shape of a view of the pitch and players running about on it. But don't open the champagne, because the pitch is the size of half the screen, and the players are four pixels high!
