Ahhhhh yes, you have to love sensible soccer. It is a game that I played almost constently when I was a teenager, with Nic and Dave being my main opponents. I had forgotten almost everything about it until about a month ago my brother found a little box that emulated a SEGA Megadrive and let you play the sensible games on your TV. I swiftly brought it for his birthday and got addicted to it. It is just simply excellant. The graphics aren't up to much by todays standard but the gameplay is simply marvellous. Do they make games like that these days ... I don't think so.
In the last couple of weeks I have managed to get an Amiga emulator working on linux and of course Sensible world of soccer works too. This has provided me with a welcome brief rest from my thesis writing which is great.
