This Codemasters Press Release
announces development of Sensible Soccer, an
upcoming sports simulation for the PC, Xbox, and PS2 due in Q2 2006. The
official Product section is online (thanks Frans
) with eight screenshots, and
here's a bit from the announcement:
The all-new Sensible Soccer will
launch Q2 2006 and come complete with lightning fast football action,
mesmerising dribbling, physics defying sliding tackles and, most famously, a
huge amount of unbelievable goals, that can go curling into the top corner,
thanks to the outrageous levels of after-touch.
Renowned as the greatest multiplayer kick-about ever, Sensible Soccer will
return with a modern take on its trademark zoomed out camera and truly intuitive
control system, which delivers total 360-degree control over your players’ kicks
and movement. Visually, the game will have a distinctive new graphical style,
which includes cel-shaded players with the classic enlarged heads, designed to
appeal both to fans of the series and appeal to a new generation of gamers.
The trademark top-down view allows you to see the build up play better than you
can in any current football game. This gives the player a huge degree of
tactical awareness and control that has never been bettered.
