When all the silicon juice gets fired up, the Sega Saturn comes close to duplicating the visual and audio razzle-dazzle of a $20,000 coin-operated machine. Worldwide Soccer does a fair job at taking advantage of the 32 bit system. It has dynamic camera perspectives and lifelike animation that enliven a quick-moving competition. As a sports simulation, though, it’s shallow: no stat keeping, no real players, and only 12 teams. And come on…it’s soccer. Last time I checked, the folks at the corner bar weren’t tuned in to any FIFA matches. C+
