20 Seiki Striker Retsuden (20th Century’s Strikers)(AKA Viva Football in export version) by Virgin Interactive contains over 1,000 teams from the past World Cups. You can play as or against any of these teams, allowing you to create historical match-ups that can be relived in the comfort of your own home.
Whether you play alone against the computer or with up to three of your friends, you have access to over 16,000 real players, all with their own characteristics, changing the way that they play the game; it’s your choice, and your choice alone. You can choose from Friendly, History or Training modes. In all of these modes you have full control over your team. Kick, block, tackle, clear, head, volley, redirect, chip or pass just like your player’s real-life counterparts do.
The Friendly mode is the American equivalent of an exhibition game. You have the choice of any country’s World Cup qualifying squad since 1958. Choose from five, 10 or 15-minute games, and play your heart out.
The Training mode lets you practice different aspects of the game. Every move is available to you and you can practice until you feel that you’re ready to play in one of the more challenging modes, like History.
In the History mode you select any World Cup tournament and team between 1958 and 1998. Choose from any worldwide Confederation, and begin. The tournament puts you into different brackets and you must come out on top to continue on. Becoming champion is no easy feat however, as you must beat the real champion to do it.
Other modes include: PlayerChat, where you can invoke players to spot darting runs made by teammates; Celebration mode allows you to celebrate your goals in style; and there’s even an Instant Replay mode.
