If scoring by curling the ball with extreme spin hilarity is your kind of thing and you enjoy tackling, passing and shooting with just a single button, well then Sensible World of Soccer for the Xbox 360 now available on Xbox Live Arcade is for you.
It had a bumpy start due to it being pulled not long after it was first released Wednesday (wouldn’t keep you logged into Xbox Live), but to their credit, the game is back again with the error fixed and in timely fashion to boot.
This title is a must purchase if you have friends who also want to explore the gem of this title. Single player isn’t really going to get your heart pumping when next generation football games are available with vast career modes, but for a quick online romp every now and then, Sensible World of Soccer is perfect. I even get to play with Nottingham Forest in the highest tier of the English leagues, now that really is nostalgia for me!
Sensible World of Soccer brings all its classic elements to a new generation of players across Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360.
