Actua Soccer 2

aka: Actua Soccer 2 featuring Alan Shearer

Description official descriptions

Following the success of the first Actua Soccer game, a sequel was likely. The game is fast-paced with more of an action than simulation feel, and an emphasis on ground play rather than heading.

A young Michael Owen provides motion capture to produce realistic player motions and actions - the different builds and styles of players are taken into account. 64 top international teams are featured, as are 24 distinct stadiums, with weather conditions having both visible and noticeable playing effects.

This was one of the first games to feature 2-man commentary, with former England captain Trevor Brooking joining Barry Davies in the analytical role.

Alan Shearer, the soccer captain of the English national team, is on the European cover.


In a time where some players questioned if game developers actually cared about the sport itself, Actua Soccer 2 included an interesting touch: In the printed manual credits, the name of each developer is followed by the club they support. The only exception is Barry Davies, who always made a point on never disclosing his supporting side. There's also a natural dominance of Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday supporters.
