Personal review
MatchDay? Sensible Soccer? FIFA? All these games pale in comparison to the original king of the CPU-kickabout.
The most important element of any football game – behind all the options and fancy graphics – is the actual game of football itself. Where alot of football games fall at this hurdle – Emlyn (the game) excels.
Ignore the strangely rectangular pitch and marvel at player animation well beyond it's 8-bit years. If options are your bag then don't despair Emlyn (the game) has options coming out of every pixel.
From kick directions to number of subs to points for a win, all tastes are catered for here. If you like your football fast and want to tinker with, well, everything, then Emlyn Hughes International Soccer is the game you should've have and should still have today!!
