Sensible Soccer

Sensible Soccer, often referred by fans as Sensi is a football video game series that was highly popular in the early 90's and still has a cult following, despite the last title being released in 1999. Developed by Sensible Software and first released for Amiga and Atari ST computers in 1992, it featured a bird's-eye view (most games until then such as Kick Off and Matchday used top down or side view), editable teams and (some claim) gameplay still unsurpassed today.

Trivia
Sensible Soccer spawned several clones, amongst them Croteam's Football Glory, for which they were sued by Sensible Software.
There are still many shareware/freeware projects which are inspired by Sensible, such as Yoda Soccer or Andreas Osswald's Championship Soccer.
The graphic style of the game was used in other Sensible Software games, such as Cannon Fodder and Sensible Golf.
SWOS 1996 received a score of 96% from Amiga Power, the highest mark given for any game in their 65-issue run.
A group of fans in Serbia named "SWOS Witnesses" ("SWOSovi Svedoci" in Serbian) organized four World Swos Tournaments from 2001 to 2004. WSTs were held in Backa Palanka (2001 and 2004), Belgrade (2002) and Nova Pazova (2003). Most players were from Serbia, but there also were contestants from Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, Bulgaria and Lebanon.
Regular tournaments are also still held in Czech Republic, Germany and Brazil.
