Missing Music!

Posted on 2012-08-14 09:01:36 byexo's avatarexo:

I just set this game up and noticed there was no music in the menus.
glancing at the config.ini file I see the guys at GoG set the C: to be the source directory, which makes no sense as they are mounting the cd image to the D:.
Changing the source drive from c: to d: suddenly enables the music on the cd.
Good going guys ;)

WOW, what a raisin in catalogue. The Game I would never expect to land at GOG :-).
Well, game is for sure pumped with fast action. Game was also released on Play Station 1 and it's only proper rival were, at the time, Fifa 96.
We have nice 3D graphic, nice for middle of 90's of course, football players are well motion-captured, every one of them described by 8 skills more Matches take place on good rendered staiums with funny commentary. Plenty of game modes avaiable, meny additional options to set, multiplayer. Basicly all we know from later sport games.
Virtual rality Soccer is piece of sport PC games history and game you should buy! Maybe it's pity that in late 90' FIFA series took first place along soccer games...

Surprisingly good!

At first this game seem like a long shot, since my idea of good soccer game being FIFA 98 Road to World Cup.
Decided to give this game a chance from lack of alternatives and guess what, I'm not at all sorry.
In fact this game is excellent!
The graphics, although very outdated, is probably state of the art for its time and still very nice by today's standards and the game is veryread more customizable.
One thing though, unlike in FIFA, there are only two keys to operate (shoot and pass). If you want to steal the ball you'll have to make a real effort rather than pressing a key in FIFA.
It is very hard and frustrating at first, but as they say, practice makes perfect.
