Unfortunately, this game came too late to be included in the league of football games in this month's football feature. Just as point of information, the points I would have awarded it are: Graphics: 10, Sound: 8, Playability: 9, Value: 9, Fun: 9. Total: 46. A clear winner. Forget the sweaters. Forget the squeaky voice and cuddly personality and think about the game.
Commodore Format
It's quick, it's accurate and it's got tons of excitement, so it beats the real England football team hands down. This, combined with the rather spiffy selection procedures and the full set-up of a World Cup to play, makes Emlyn Hughes International Soccer a king amongst footie games. It's miles better than going down the park for a kickabout.

Don't be put off by the fact that the game carries the name of that annoying twerp - Emlyn 'Crazy Horse' Hughes. It is an excellent game despite this. Provides for good quick attacks and enjoyable shots at goal. Manual control over the keeper is another nice touch.

All in all, this is an extremely thorough game that provides stiff competition to Microprose Soccer for the title of best football game around.
The Games Machine (UK)
The player controls are comprehensive, giving many combinations of height, direction ans strength. And while all these will take a long time to master, the options allow the complexity of controls to be gradually build up, easing the burden till you're ready to tackle a very complete simulation.
Power Play
EMIS ist eine spielenswerte Sport-Simulation, die auch langfristig motiviert. Neben MicroProse Soccer ist das Programm das beste Fußballspiel, das in letzter Zeit erschienen ist. Wenn ich zwischen beiden wählen müßte, würde ich den MicroProse-Konkurrenten wählen, bei dem einfach mehr los ist. Da EMIS sich aber anders spielt und bei den Details wie dem Liga-Modus die Nase vorn hat, können sich Fußballfans ruhigen Gewissens beide Programme zulegen.
