Although I am a true PC SWOS player since early on, I personally think that Amiga SWOS is the best version of the famous series!

Some Reasons:

- Amiga has better ball physics
- Goalies on Amiga show much more intelligence
- Gameplay seems better on Amiga as well


Nevertheless, I don't prefer Amiga! I love both versions.

My favorite version is PC SWOS. The graphic is not the best, but I like the gameplay.

Right, the graphic resolution is too low .. 1 point, why AMIGA version is better.

But I think: The PC gameplay is too easy, it's nearly impossible to lose the ball.
Here it's easier to control the ball, easier to score and easier to defend - This is what I feel, when I play PC, AMIGA is the real Competition. Sorry, but I think, PC is like AMIGA "Beginner-Mode". But PC version is nevertheless very good.

But OK, this is my opinion. I saw, you play also very well on AMIGA as on PC, so you know, what you say!

If someone is a great player of Amiga SWOS, he can adapt to all other versions of Sensible Soccer easily! He is "allmighty"!  ;D

All right! Sure, there are specialists, they have some advantages on their "home" system, but, with some practice, you can play also succesful on other systems! There are some differences, you need some games to find out, the way to score and so on ..

But: Like you said, I think also that good AMIGA players are also good PC players, because AMIGA SWOS is the "most pretentious" version!

IIRC, the Amiga can only have 16 moving sprites on-screen at any one time, so maybe the players 'hold position'
better in the Amiga version than in other versions?

I have only played Amiga version recently on WinAEU and I thought it was a lot harder than the PC version (which
I loved).

In fact I loved the 1.1 Version very much, cause we played in our city several tournaments with this version, and it was very fair, all goals were possible to score but also to defend. We never equalized the teams, cause it was possible to win with several teams if you were strong enough.

The difficulty in Amiga SWOS was the highest I think, so it was later the greatest deal to be strong in this version, but sometimes I thought there were not so much teams equal like in 1.1 (exception if you equalized them manually).

PC SWOS was easier but I think even this Version had a great advantage if you played Single Player. Cause it made so much fun when you made an incredible dribbling to stun 5 players and the goalkeeper in not even one half of a second, and afterwards it was like you felt the might of Luke Skywalker cause you just made it without thinking. No version is so fast like this one. (exeption the International PC Version which was getting  faster if youre system was faster I believe)

AMIGA FOREVER! ;D

The SWOS Amiga goalkeeper are very good than in Pc.   For example:In PC version every "diagonal shot" is a goal. In Amiga NO! ;)

. but there are shots in amiga u cant score with pc

which one???  i can't imagine!

But it is true that the Goalie comes off his line earlier and farer. Even out of the 6 yard box sometimes....! I think that is great!

i cant imagine i scored like..  running towards the goal (read: right post) in a straigt line a few inches away from the post.  and about at height of the keeper-area shooting the ball a wit a left curve.. the keeper always dives to the right when i shoot like this..
and u havent got goals with the low passes  that could easily shot-walked in..
quite strange is.. that when i played pc again i just gave all low passes like amiga cause i was to much used to it.. i had it for many matches and it just not go away... and once in a while the low  pass became quite handy!.. but the ball drops mostly dead like a bird from the sky...
