Probably wasted on todays youth Classic games in my opinion,

360 controller support and full audio commentry.

What platform? Are they Xbox One screenshots Buzz?

Still the best football game I've ever played for addiction and game play!

Cant understand why this hasn't been re released as an App. They would make a killing

What a classic game,

As a teenager, I would spend hours on end playing this.

Forget Fifa and PES,

This is the No.1 Footie game next to the original days of Championship Manager.

Wish they would bring it to Playstation etc.

SWOS is on Xbox Live (360) I'm not sure about PS though.

Agreed! I got this on the 360 and it was my most played game on the console out of the 50+ games that I had (sold the entire collection off including the console for a Wii U). Is this the same version as the 360?

Had this on the amiga 500. Epic entertainment.

Game of my youth!

Check out pixelreplay.com if you like SWOS!

JoyToKey is an excellent shareware app I just found that let me configure my 360 pad in minutes to play with

This deal is hotter than Jason Lee's pineapple haircut!

How do you get a 360 controller to work?

Looks like Pinnacle Game Profiler doesn't have a profile for this game

Regarding the GoG version (they seem to be license holders of this version)

"Will that allow me to use my xbox360 controller?"

"Yes, as long as your PC recognizes it and you will be able to play online, too."

Fantastic game. Have fond memories of managing to get this running on the uni pc's about a decade ago. Me and mates having mass Sensi sessions hogging all the PCs to the annoyance of many Norwegians (other students too polite to say anything I guess).

Couple of reports of people using Joy2Key (Sure it cant be too hard, Only 5 buttons to assign ;))

This will kill your eyes. So worth it though!!!!!!!!!

Cold.

No Messi and Ronaldo rendered in several hundred thousand polygons.
No 4K resolution option.
No +300fps frame rate.
No season pass or micro-transactions.

It doesn't even display at lowly Xbox One resolutions so it must be rubbish.

/sarcasm

Hot, simply because I wasted a good few months of my life during my teens playing this beauty or an earlier version anyway. I wouldn't go near it again as sometimes nostalgia has a way of booting you in the balls.

happy days playing this on my shiny Amiga 1200. no fancy graphics, no Alan Smith dodgy commentary just pure addictive playability.

Best game ever. Used to be so addicted to it, my dad used to have to drag me away from the PC at tea times because I always needed just 5 more minutes!! Happy days :-)

What I need really is an iOS release for ipad

Utter utter rage at going down 0-3 to Southampton in front of the faithful. Haven't raged that hard for some time!
At this rate ill struggle to beat the 34 points we got in the real league that year.

No Messi and Ronaldo

That should solve that problem at least!

Had many a drunken night playing this with mates on my Amiga :-)

Ha! Brilliant! With the roster being up to date then Rooney should have hair again and 'JT' should be collecting the World Cup dressed in his Chelsea kit soon!
