Great fun, and a worthy successor to the original, but not flawless Martin Smith (66862) unrated

CU Amiga (Jan, 1995)
This is the greatest and mos enjoyable game I've ever played. Sensible World of Soccer is a landmark software title that once again shows the pedigree of Sensible Software and of course the Amiga.
Amiga Computing (Jan, 1995)
I previously believed that Sensible Soccer was only good for two players, but thanks to SWOS it lends itself more towards becoming an almost perfect one-player game. The interaction between the tactics and the transfers is just brilliant and in my mind SWOS is the world's first football game that has managed to get a perfect balance between a pure arcade game and a management simulation. I had my reservations about yet another episode of Sensible Soccer, but I've had those firmly destroyed because SWOS, quite simply, is the best Amiga game that money tan buy. I could go on forever heaping praise upon the game, but I haven't got the time or the space, so I'll leave you to put this magazine down and let you toddle off down to the shops to buy it.
Amiga Bladet (Jan 26, 1995)
Af alle de nye fodboldspil, der var tale om under VM i USA '94, er Sensible World of Soccer det eneste, som ikke udkom i forbindelse med VM. Pudsigt nok er det også det eneste af samtlige disse spil, der virkelig er kvalitet.
90 (Jan 22, 2008)
Grafica semplice e un sonoro di qualità (mitici i vari cori e la musichetta del menù) accompagnano il resto. Che altro dire... se volete veramente conoscere come sono nati i giochi di calcio e volete farvi una cultura sul videogioco non potete non giocare a Sensible World of Soccer per Amiga/PC, per buona pace di recenti remake e future uscite, che non riescono neanche ad avvicinarsi alla qualità di questo titolo.
Amiga Games (Nov, 1994)
Bisher hielt ich kleine Sprites für augenschädlich. Sensible World of Soccer läßt aber alle Sorge ums Augenlicht vergessen, denn in Sachen Gameplay und Einstellungsmöglichkeiten besteigt Renegade locker den Soccer-Olymp.
Amiga Joker (Oct, 1994)
Und weil auch noch ein wenig Platz für unseren tollen Wettbewerb bleiben muß, sei nur noch kurz angemerkt, daß grafisch kein Quantensprung stattgefunden hat; auch die Statistiken sind eher zweckmäßig geraten. Der Sound allerdings ist besser geworden, und das Joystick-Management hat man perfekt im Griff. Wenn es um Action und Management geht, kommt der neue Weltmeister also von Sensible Soccer!
Play Time (Dec, 1994)
Optisch hat sich zu Sensible Soccer nicht viel verändert: Spielfeldsicht aus der Vogelperspektive, kleine flinke Spieler, die gut zu kontrollieren sind und eine tolle Spielbarkeit. Was neu mit dazugepackt wurde, ist jedoch der Hammer. Auf nur zwei Disketten befinden sich nicht nur zwei verschiedene Spielmöglichkeiten (Actionspiel und Managmentsimulation), sondern ganz nebenbei auch noch 1.500 Mannschaften, die aus ca. 22.000 Spielern bestehen. Wem das nicht reicht, der kann mittels Editor eigene Teams erstellen.
