FIFA 23 and PES, or eFootball as it’s now known, might be giving you modern football fatigue, but a 90s sports game classic is thankfully coming to Steam
Bring this on for a sequel please!
But..the sequel came out in 1998 already ;)
Sequel sequel bid ;)
I think football fans are crying out for a new franchise. EA have been complacent for years and eFootball got off to the worst start possible. I remember having fun with Actua Soccer but even back then, the older PES games (ISS Pro 98/Evolution) were king.
I'm shocked there's not a good alternative to Fifa, seeing as the sport is arguable the biggest in the world. I get licensing can cause an issue but a good game will see and can grow into a franchise. There's always work arounds such as an edit player/team/league names option. I'm surprised there isn't more fun arcaedy options too. Mario Strikers is the only game I can think of.
It is unfortunate since many of the European leagues sell their licenses exclusively to whoever they choose. Premier League and La Liga are sealed up tightly with EA.
Loved actua soccer back in the day, played it heaps with mates...although if you got the curve controls nailed you could score from just over halfway quite a lot
