Total Football

Total Football

Among the many Genesis soccer games is a title that was never released in North America. Total Football is a competent game that may be worth closer examination, but its quirky control scheme and sub-par feature list may keep more diehard fans glued to their copies of FIFA and Sensible Soccer.
