Cart: Sensible World of Soccer Coin: Sensible Software Cab: Amiga/PC/Various
Sensible World of Soccer, or SWOS to its legion of fans, was an outstanding football title that still stands up today as an excellent game. We will cover the game in far more depth in a future article, but for now we will concentrate on the intro and title theme music.
Like Cannon Fodder, this featured an original music track, along with the typical Sensible shenanigans video. This time the team mixes real video of themselves messing about with frankly woeful 3D footballers, which somehow makes sense in the context of it being a Sensible Software game.
Anyway, the music “Goal Scoring Superstar Hero” is by Jon Hare and Richard Joseph, with vocals by Jackie Reed.
