The PS4 version is already out, but it's the PC one I want us to start playing as soon as it is out. It's the best football game of all time and perhaps even the best sports game of all time. Certainly one of the best.

P.S. This is best played with an arcade stick, believe it or not. I doubt you can be very good in this with a controller, unless you can also do well in STGs with a controller.

Having said that, I read somewhere that it's a bad remake, so unless you plan to buy it anyway let me get it first and try it out, and then I'll let you know if it's worth getting.

I hope it's in a solid state right now, I've been trying to find a decent review of this, but a lot of them just state that the feature list is underwhelming, Sensible was better, and that the game is too hard. Reading some of the review comments, the fans have been saying it's not on par with the first two games, but who knows, the game has gone through about 5 patches now, so it might be in a better state.

It would be cool to have a sports game like this in our MP rotation and I was thinking of getting this on the PS4 anyway. I'll gift you a copy if you're up to try this out sometime. Otherwise, I'm trying to get into the PC closed beta they have going on. He directed people on the game's community Discord to friend him on Steam and ask for a beta key, but I doubt he'll respond to me, lol. The Discord server can be found in the link below as well as his Steam page.

The price is negligible, so that's not my issue. I just prefer to play everything on Steam if possible. You think the PC port might be worse than the PS4 version? My understanding is that they'll either both be good, or not.

It's definitely worth trying both versions though, just in case the netcode is better in one than in the other, so I'll get both.

I think they will be nearly the same, I'm just eager to try out the game. After reading your review all those years ago, I attempted to find an emulator or see if I could get my hands on an Amiga and a copy of the game, lol.
