It's that time of year again folks. No not flying ant day, it's the end of September which means the latest versions of FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer are coming out. So what better way to celebrate this than by playing a much better football game; Sensible Soccer.

This week on Community Service we're joined by Sensible Software co-founder Jon Hare to play Sensible Soccer, before going online with FIFA and Pro Evolution.

Further details on how to get involved, can be found on my GameSpot blog.

Wednesday 26 September at 9am Pacific | 5pm London | 2am Australia

Any plans for a remake of Sensible Soccer (I have SWOS) or Cannon Fodder for XBLA?

I used to love football games, don't really get on with them anymore.

Swos was the first game i went crazy like a crack head for lol!!

 

The managment aspect of it  was emense, and the sheer number of nations, leagues, teams and real player names has not been matched since i dont think! Not even by current/last gen manager games!

Sensible Soccer.. the immense hours I spent playing it against my brother on the old Amiga 600. Great times! Cannon Fodder is still one of the funniest games I've played.  One question, how in the world did you get so many real teams and players at that time? Your own database? On a time that the majority of football games had no Portuguese teams, you had them all the way to the 2nd or 3rd Division, I remember being fascinated by it at the time.

Absolute pinnacle was SWOS... Awesome theme tune too! Not as good as Cannon Fodder's though. :D
