The graphics are funny, with the enlarged heads it looks like you have a team made up of Beavis and Buttheads.

i feared the worst, but having read various previews etc. the signs seem positive so far

still with pes5 in existence, it's debatable if it matters

Very true.

But it's Sensi for gawds sake...I too was concerned that they were going to screw it up but having seen the gameplay video on eurogamer it looks like the classic sensi action but in 3D.

(Please god don't screw it up)

They're also releasing it at a slightly cheaper price point (17 quid for the PC and 24 for the consoles).

Yaaaay. I loved playing this on my mates Amiga. It was just too much fun kicking the shjit out of the other team so much, they had to start putting their injured players back on.
(Used to do the same in Speedball 2)

more importantly could this symbolise the start of a series of classic remakes? I'd love to see some of the old classics with cool new graphics.

I want last ninja and carrier command!

Carrier Command? That crazy RTS game where you piloted a Carrier, and then remote piloted amphibian tanks (outfited w/ a laser, anti-vehicle, or anti-air) or remote piloted small planes (outfited w/ a laser, a bomb, anti-vehicle, or anti-air)? You'd take over an island, assign it a production (tank, plane, laser, bomb, anti-vehicle, anti-air), and chug on to a new target or run back to defend an island you already owned?

Yeah, I had that game on my Amiga. Loved it. I picked it up for the PC a few years back, still shrink wrapped, for less then $5. Plays just the same on the PC as on the Amiga. :D

On a couple of hours play so far on the PS2

SS2006 = Smashing

...although the realistic eyes on the cartoon heads freaks me out

i played the pc demo and thought it was quite fun but rather frustrating.

these two reader reviews from eurogamer are scathing though:

I bought this late last week (impulse purchase). It's not the greatest game ever, but it is loads of fun.

Once you get used to the controls and get out of the PES mindset you can do some wicked stuff. The AI is sufficiently challenging (such that I havent won the wc with England yet... ;)). Two player should be a blast.

I bought the PC version as im trying to retire my PS2! So not sure how different it is but it runs fine on mine. There are a few odd moments where the ball inexplicably appears in the goal keepers hands, but it happens fairly rarely.

Tournament options aren't that good though, a bit inflexible compared to the sensi that I remember as a kid. It doesnt show you other match results and doesn't tally stuff such as top scorers, assists etc. That part looks like it was rushed out...

But for 15 (18 ps2) on play.com definately worth getting for a quick kick around.

yeah i downloaded a 'review copy' and thought it was quite fun. i think i might have felt a bit bad had i paid for it though, the presentation and options are very basic, and as you say some rather glaring visual errors and suchlike
