The first (and only) football game to be produced by the Actua Soccer team after Infogrames purchased Gremlin, UEFA Challenge surprised a lot of players when producer Jon Watson joined one of the most popular football-gaming forums in 2001 (now defunct Soccered), in a time where FIFA fans tried their best to be heard by developers. The result was a single patch with requested features such as basic kit importing and physics tweaks before Infogrames stopped supporting the product.
