Be a Goal-Scoring Superstar Hero!

Sensible World of Soccer, the ultimate installment of the 1990s favorite pixelated sports game, with in-depth management options and over 29 000 real-life players you can pick for your dream-team, is now available on GOG.com, for only $5.99.

This game occupies a unique place in history: considered Best Amiga Game of All Time (by Amiga Power) and included in Stanford University's list of "the ten most important video games of all time" alongside such groundbreaking titles as Space Wars, Tetris, SimCity and Doom, there is more to this sports game than you might think. So what makes it such an amazing title? It combines an elegant simplicity of gameplay--there are eight directions of travel and single key to pass, shoot, head, and interact with the game--with authenticity and a deep career mode, where you must manage an entire soccer club or team as well as play the games.

In Sensible World of Soccer the controls are simple, but don't think the game is easy; it realistically models all of the players who were active in the sport at the time, and while if your finger-twitching skills aren't up to snuff you can still watch your team's games unfold in Coach Mode, you'll find that the A.I. poses a respectable challenge regardless of whether you're playing on the field or managing your team in the league.

Don't be fooled by the fact that this football--erm, soccer--game lacks the features of the most recent FIFA games Sensible World of Soccer is a true gem, and one that clearly has inspired the entire genre of sports games. Get it now for only $5.99 on GOG.com.
IT´S ALIVE!

The 2013 year has been an one with great surprises and hard work from GOG team: Daikatana, System Shock and now Sensible Soccer, very cool!
I know it's a lot to ask, but is there a way to update the players to 2013 names?
I hate soccer.. I still need Myst.

Then it's just not soccer.
How does it compare to Sensible Soccer 2006?

Like a chocolate cake to a pile of shit.
Out of curiosity, anyone knows the EXACT release date for this, in the US or in Europe? I somehow think that January 1st, 1996 is just an estimate by GOG, no?

(Like, are the file dates still intact and reveal when the "Gold Floppy" was done?)

Cheers!

Ah, that's the kind of thing I'd like to see! Anyone know of such patches?

I've seen a video on Youtube but couldn't find an actual download of a patch...

Try sensiblesoccer.de. Don't be fazed by the .de domain as there is an English version of the site.
Awesome, would love to update the players to 2013.

I would like to find joysticks to play this but not like the Flight Sim joysticks, but more like the classic old two button ones.

Anyone come across a site that sells them?

Thanks, that post had me grinning for the first time today!

Also made me want to eat some cake while sitting on the toilet.
Haha. GOG vs DRM - who won?
Fantastic game. Needs to come bundled with a Competition Pro 5000 for full authenticity. :)
