Game Review

The FIFA World Cup 2018 is starting, so it's time for some football nostalgia! Italy 1990 (know as World Class Soccer in the US) is a soccer sim developed by Tiertex and published by US Gold in 1990.

As you can imagine, the game is set during the 1990 FIFA World Cup that was held in Italy. The game was released for the Amiga, Commodore 64, DOS, ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC. Tiertex didn't do a very good job with the official 1986 world cup soccer game; in fact, they lost the official FIFA license. However, with Italia 1990, they definitely created a better title.

We are not talking about Sensible Soccer or Kick Off. This means the ball is always attached to the players. But despite the pure soccer gameplay is probably too simple, the overall presentation of the game is well done and it's able to create a nice experience.

The game received decent reviews from the magazines, and there are some people with nice memories of this game.
