Review of 'World Cup '86'

Rating:2 User: YOR

One of the early BASIC football manager games. There are no highlights at all, it takes you straight to the result which is fair enough. But team selection is odd, all the players are blank and you have to fill them in at the very beginning, so I just put in England's 86 World Cup squad. Injuries are very common and you'll most likely run out of players by the time you reach the tail end of qualifying. It always plays a beepy God Save the Queen every time it loads your squad. There isn't much waiting in this game which is great but there isn't a lot of everything else along with it. With all the injuries causing your squad's rating to go down you don't stand much chance of winning the World Cup anyway, I lost to El Salvador which says it all.
