That was the feeling I had when I first played the game. I was surprised by the highly rated reviews on the press. I really regret for giving £14.99 to buy it. Why? Read the review and you will understand.... ETW is a typical soccer game with a pseudo-3D perspective similar to some old soccer games like John Barnes Football. The concept behind the game is to make a new Sensible Soccer. From the intoduction you can understand that it's a badly designed game. The graphics are poor and everything looks jerky. A nice bit though is that you see a different intro every time you load the game. There are a lot of options in the game. You can play the World Cup, there is an Arcade Mode which reminds me of Speedball 2, and the usual Friendly Game option. You can specify the resolution that you wish to play (320x200 or 640x480), if you want speech or crowd fx, duration etc. So what's wrong with the game? At first the graphics are quite nice but there is no scrolling (!) but a fast flick-screen...And please don't try the hi-res mode. It's SLOWWWWW. If you can live with that, how about the fact that you don't control the players in most of the game? Players seem to avoid going on the ball and sometimes they prefer to go for tea with the crowd!!! The sound is terrible as well. The speech is an option that is poorly executed (the speaker repeats words, doesn't finish the sentences etc). And forget about the authentic names of the players. The Arcade Mode is slightly better just for the idea to play with bonuses (increase players' speed etc.) but suffers from the same drawbacks mentioned above. The game has endless bugs and makes me wonder if it was playtested. It is possible to be taking penalty kicks and suddenly, in the middle of the procedure, see the players take the ball and start playing a third half!!! So is there anything good? Just a good idea that is poorly executed. The game needs a lot of work. As it is it doesn't deserve anything higher that 35%.
