Many spectrum games are much better than it's rushed C64 conversions, Match Day and Emlyn Hughes were 2 great examples of that. I didn't find a single football match I like on C64. And yeah Match Day was great for headers especially MD2 :)
Striker was also decent indeed, I played it several times too, mostly on PC. And Lotthar Matthaus too, a nice Emlyn Hughes improvement, problem is that when I got it I already had Sensi so didn't spend much time with it.

Marek PeMksa in Frankfurt, 7M (they just renamed Tony Yeboah) and Beguiristain in Barca,15 M (renamed Romario) are "stains" on SWOS reputation

Penksa and Beguiristain are real players, do you mean they messed up when transferring Yeboah and Romario so that overrated players were left behind?

Oh, and FIFA has absolutely overtaken the only-getting-worse-since-WE6FE PES series by now but both games are relatively rubbish.

Apart from SWOS I guess I've spent most time with Goal! on the Amiga (the real sequel to KO2).

WE6FE

That was like what, 7 years ago? Trust me, the most recent iteration of the J-WE franchise is leaps and bounds better than anything currently available on the shelves, "next-gen" PES and FIFA included.

Along with SFIV it's the only game that prevents me from playing SWOS from time to time and I don't even get to play it with friends or online otherwise it'd be addicting.

also: your J.League database is like 3 or 4 years behind and oftentimes doesn't make much sense, btw, get it checked.

Yes, exactly :-)

What current iteration is that? And for what system?

I had already posted about it on the last page, lemme quote myself (btw it's for PS2):




uhh, not sure what happened but when I modified the links to embed one of the videos the post layout got screwed and it wouldn't let me repost any link...so I'll do it here:

I always loved to play these soccer games:

ISS Deluxe (SNES), an awesome game! Really a big one for me.
Striker (DOS), great ball physics for shooting.
Kickoff 97 (Windows) --> You could do some really dirty tackles there...  ;D

Is that at me? My current update doesn't include the J.League, I didn't have time, so of course the data included is the original 96-97 (very old) with the wrong team names (for licensing reasons) etc.

If I had a J.League database it would be tidy and correct ;)

I'm gonna provide you some data then, been following J.League religiously since when I was a kid (by the way, the original 96/97 data Sensible Software relied upon wasn't completely correct either, aside from the mangled team names that were pretty much unavoidable due to copyright issues they ended up mixing up rosters from "94 upwards for a lot of teams, especially for the ones that belonged to the former 2nd division/JFL)!

FIFA is fawking amazing this year, I've been one of the biggest detractors of the series up until now but boy, did they get this right this time around.

Basically, it flows like Football Kingdom, controls better than Winning Eleven, plays like a sim, looks (finally) like a true "next-gen" title and most importantly it's unbelievably fun in multiplayer (whether it's online - there's no lag whatsoever btw - or in local with your friends). Presentation and players' characterization are still lacking but who cares honestly, the gameplay's so good I'll gladly turn a blind eye at that.

A def cop if you own a PS3 or a 360, I'm loving every minute of it.

Excluding SWOS, it would be Striker for Amiga and also the PC version of it.

I allways played football games. There is a game that I really enjoy, Microprose Soccer, then I meet Lothar Matthaus and I play a lot of time this fabulous game. Now I´m playing Fifa 14 because of his online functions and is a very good simulator. But allways SWOS will be the best of the best

I really like Super Soccer on the SNES, when it comes to two player matches. Against CPU it is to easy and to much in one way so it is fun, but it is not very eciting after two or three matches vs. cpu.
Maybe I should try Super Formation Soccer 94. It is based on Super Soccer but only released in Japan.
