Developed by Psygnosis in their Paris offices Power Soccer, with the Adidas endorsement, had a lot to live up to. Fortunately, this is a game that delivers. Taking the full advantage of motion-capture technology, the graphics are superlative. In practice mode - the sprites are colourfully handsome and beautifully shaded. In-game, the fluidity of play is practically liquid and the sprites, animated with some 123 separate frames, pull off some extravagant moves. Apart from the on-pitch action, there's also a strong managerial aspect spicing up gameplay as you seek to strengthen squads and wheeler-deal to finish with honours.
