FIFA Soccer 96 © 1995 EA Sports [Electronic Arts label]

A PlayStation optimised version of possibly the most successful soccer series of all time.

All the expected options are here, from Cup and League creation games to one-off friendlies. Every league and national team operates under FIFA's considerable governing body - that's over 300 teams, all rated accurately according to ability.

The game engine has been completely overhauled to make maximum use of PlayStation technology and it shows - from the impressive Virtual Stadium, to the 7 viewing angles, to John Motson's commentary. The sprites are all motion captured and animated over, so spectacular moves are exaggerated to great effect.
