World Tour Soccer: Challenge Edition Review

Image for World Tour Soccer: Challenge Edition

It looks nice, but control-wise this is sometimes wanting.

★★★★★

Although far from perfect, World Tour Soccer is still worth a shot if you’re hungry for PSP footy thrills.

The crisp graphics and opportunity to play as classic teams such as 1966 England will be enough to convince most fans to squander 30 quid, but devotees of console kickabouts such as Konami’s International Superstar Soccer may feel frustrated by the players’ shallow selection of moves and robotic movement around the pitch.

The intelligence of your computer-controlled teammates also leaves a lot to be desired – occasionally they’ll just stand and stare at the crowd when the ball rolls to their feet – but WTS still has an old-school charm that will keep most gamers happy until FIFA 2006 shoots for PSP glory in November.
