World Soccer '94, Road To Glory -- Atlus

Indoors or outdoors you call the shots in this realistic soccer game from Atlus. In World Soccer '94 you choose it all--from weather conditions and rule books to skin and hair colors for players. The world league is now your league on the Super NES.

Finally the SNES is getting some sports titles from other companies. Overall I'd have to say this game was awesome! Everything about it was realistic!

Graphically this game was nothing special. The sound to it wasn't too bad. However, the one thing that really was great was the handling of the guys who you controlled. With the ability to play in tournaments and play indoor or outdoor soccer, I think this game will last awhile.

I know that every time I review a sports game I say that I don't like them, but what I really mean is that I can't stand bad sports games. Well, not only is this game excellent, but I liked it a lot! Now I understand why it's the number one selling soccer game in Europe. No flaws at all that I can see. It even intuits which guy you need to be playing more accurately than any other game I've played. You've gotta check this cart out.

Having been a soccer player for a little over 10 years, I can personally attest to the fact that this is without a doubt one of the most realistic soccer titles on the market today. I love the incredible number of play and team options. The control is smooth and accurate. This game is so technically accurate to real-life playing conditions down to control options for the bounce of the ball (wet ground, dry ground, etc.), it feels like the real thing. Incredible.
