Post by pav82 » Fri Mar 30, 2007 2:52 pm

Does anybody know this game was realesed only in Europe?
I've never seen it as a long box version.

I wish greatly Panasonic would make 3do Next Generation Console some day.

Yes, this game was released in Europe back in 1995, it may even have been a UK only release. Striker was a massive franchise back in the early 90's along with Sensible Soccer, but I don't think they were distributed outside Europe. It would have been great if 3DO had Sensible Soccer, Olympic Soccer was the closest we got to that.

What do people see in Football games? Sensible Soccer is excused because it was actually fun but most Football games are really boring.

In fact I don't like football or even sport games too much, but I really want to collect all 3do games. 8)
I wish greatly Panasonic would make 3do Next Generation Console some day.

I don't think many 3DO games were exclusive to Europe. Was Cannon Fodder released in the States? I also heard that Defcon 5 was only released in Europe. Not sure if that was true.

Defcon 5 for 3do was advertised in US mags along w/the PSX & Saturn versions, but for unknown reasons never did make it to US shores. Unless I am very mistaken, this game is one of only 2 UK exclusives (the other being Striker)

I knew this post had a familiar ring ...

I still have some doubts about an additional soccer/footie game ... can anyone confirm or deny?
