Actua Soccer was the first game series from Gremlin to use the 'Actua' prefix essentually as Gremlins version of Sega's 'Virtua' Series. The game itself is a update of 'UEFA Euro 96 England' that Gremlin had released the year before, though this version focuses on the English Premiership and does include all the real team and player names of the time unfortunatly that along with a tweeked interface and a few other option updates are the only real changes from the standard version of Actua Soccer and the Euro '96 games. The game modes include Practice, Friendly & Season all of which can be played in either Arcade or Simulation modes. You can also customise offsides, subs, freekicks the length of the matches, bookings and wind speed along with a random referee where his vision & discipline vary.
You can now play as your favourite Premier League team in your quest to lift the championship trophy. Choose your line-up from the latest squads and play through the entire season. With new live commentary from football's finest, Barry Davies, Actua Soccer Club Edition is as close to real league action as you can get.
