Description

An official licensed game of the European Championships held in England in 1996. All 16 teams are available to choose from and the following Game Types: European Championship, Friendly Game, Practice Penalties and Practice Match (only the opposition's goalkeeper is on the pitch).

A couple of options of note are variable/adjustable wind and a choice of referees each with two difficulty levels of 'vision' and 'discipline' (the latter is available for friendly games only). Long time BBC sport commentator Barry Davies provides the commentary. The game is based on Gremlin Interactive's Actua Soccer engine.

Trivia

Taking advantage of the first qualification for a major competition since 1986 and the dominance of the Sega Saturn, the game was heavily marketed in Portugal, and was one of the first localized titles released in the market. A massive TV campaign included FC Porto players Domingos Paciência and Vitor Baía (which also gave interviews about the game) was started before the tournament and commentary was provided by the late Jorge Perestrelo, who would provide commentary for EA's games in 2003.
