DescriptionWorld Trophy Soccer
(also known as European Club Soccer
) is a reworking of Manchester United Europe
, using the same side-view gameplay and a wider view than Krisalis' other football game of the time, John Barnes' European Football
All the teams who were in contention for one of the 3 main European tournaments as they were at the time of the game's release are included, although with fictitious player names and a few inaccurate kits. Cutscenes detail the match's progress, while a referee is active on the screen. The game can be played in arcade or simulation modes, with 6 different formations available.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
The US version is practically a clone of the PAL version, which is an adaptation of Manchester United Europe. Fearing the European Champions Cup (now known as the Champions League) would not be as well accepted there, Krisalis replaced clubs by national teams (although only 32), but big changes stop there. The competition is exactly the same, a 32-team knockout with 2 legs, the cup shown at the victory screen still is remarkably close to the Champion's cup and even the tunes are named after the original PAL release. No surprise the US version is practically unknown.
