Grass Roots

Having redefined genres for the past 5 years, the concept king turns his magic touch to soccer - and delivers the most character-driven interpretation of the sport seen yet! Leave the professional experience on the bench, and rediscover your roots playing real people with real stories. Create your own sporting saviour from scratch and embark on a campaign for world domination - sampling the culture of each continent and challenging their heroes. Match after match, you'll gain loyal followers and confront bitter rivals as you shimmy your way through a political minefield. But once that dream team has been formed, all that remains is to hit the pitch for the most dramatic sporting action on the planet! When you get back to basics and passion is all that matters, will your roots be strong enough?
Requires a PC compatible with DirectX 7.0 or higher. 1.6gHz processor recommended.
