Overview

Sociable Soccer is a fast-paced, quick to pick-up, slow to master, football game. Unlike the intricated lifelike simulation of FIFA, this game wants to recreate the frantic feel of classic arcade football games. It has its heritage back in Sensible Soccer, a competitor to Kick Off on the Amiga and Atari ST, that attracted a loyal following for its cute visuals and knife-edge football battles.

Sensible Soccer is more than a quick arcade game though. It offers an ultra-flexible and accessible experience that can be played by anyone but that requires real skill to master. You control the full team or opt to be the manager. There's online play and head-to-head matches if you connect two controllers.

Alongside the main game there's a collectable card team-building aspect that offers 25,000 upgradable player cards, from 1,000 international teams. Add to this the Seasonal League System, 60-hour campaign mode and different online modes and you have a strong package.

Compete on the Couch

Raucous, unbounded, exuberant, all-age competitive fun is something video games are known for. Find the right games for your family and you can create important and healthy ways to let off steam, excel and persevere as you sit next to each other on the sofa. These games can play a big part in raising children to be magnanimous in victory and generous in defeat. Kids love competing online, but the games here focus on battling in the same room. Played with multiple controllers and a shared screen, they offer challenges that require real skill and give everyone a chance to rise to the top of the family pile.
 

Play And Connect

Online games are great because you have a world of opponents to take on and defeat (or be defeated by). But beyond the competitive element of these games are often a strong sense of community and camaraderie.

Players enjoy making new connections in these games, as well as connecting with wider family and friends. Listen to the chatter while children play these games, and you hear as much talk about homework, television, YouTube or what's happening in the world as who to shoot in the head next.
