Well written article and a very good read. Can't say that I relate to it, though. The minimalist graphics were fine, but Sensi Soccer always seemed more arcade than sim to me (and to the point that I never could get into it).

Perhaps some (all?) of it is that being from the US I haven't seen a lot of soccer/football. Granted -- I never disliked it like many others from the US, and by the World Cup in '94 I was very much enjoying it and understood many nuances. But I guess I saw Sensi Soccer as being in the same league as any other sports game you'd drop a quarter into.

In any event, I always sort of wondered if my view of Sensi Soccer was shared at all. (I think this is a bit of a derail, perhaps though.)

Anyway, back to the article. Very good, like I said. And my being unable to really relate is probably just a cultural thing; I know Sensi Soccer enjoyed/enjoys great popularity.

You have to understand, I've never hated football. I just didn't understand football.
Kinda, like, *perfectly* describes me humble persona.
Never knew what's with Sensible Soccer, though I did like the managing mode. And Liga Polska Manager. Adored Retee 2!.
My first game for the PS1 that I got on the January of '97 was Adidas Power Soccer. Than FIFA '98 Road to World Cup.
My first game for the PC (Celeron 333) I got on the December of '98 was FIFA '99.

But no, I still don't understand "what's in it for me"...
