Reviews: World Cup Italia '90 / Super Futebol II - review by CVG magazine "Complete Guide to Sega"

World Cup Italia 90 can be played by one or two competitors, and is divided into three sections. The penalty shootout, a one-off match option and The World Cup is the main event, with all six groups represented and all the teams from this year's event.

It certainly looks good when you load it, since it features some excellent presentation screens. However, when you play the game itself, disappointment is the order of the day. The graphics are dreadful and the pitch is so tiny, you've got no room to manoeuvre.

Control is very poor - you can plough through the opposition, shoot diagonally and stick it into the net easily! And that's not all The graphics are all out of scale (the men are nearly as big as the goal!), the ball movement is utterly unrealistic and the sound is dreadful.

In fact the only thing that's good is the penalty shoot out! If you haven't got a football game, get the vastly superior (and cheaper) World Cup Soccer. Otherwise wait for something better.
