European Championship 1992 is a conversion of the old Tecmo World Cup 1990 arcade game, with the title altered to make it seem modern back in 1992. It has been made into a rather poor, one-dimensional Sega Megadrive game, and it came out as an equally poor 16bit game for the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST and PC (MS-DOS). This is the closest you could get to Tecmo's fun arcade football game, and although its (several) glitches, it is quite good fun with plenty of goals and incidents in every match.
 
Review
European Championship 1992STORY / GAMEPLAY
The game plays in side-on perspective. The full gamut of soccer rules and actions are implemented, including tackles (stealing), throw-outs, and penalty flags to remove aggressive players. Players run, steal, and defend better depending on who you pick, but unfortunately there is a little variation in the type of shots you can produce rather than several overhead kicks and diving headers. It's pretty slow-moving, but you get the essential action replays after a goal, which you can save on disk and load later.
The most unusual feature is that you actually control your goalkeeper, the best feature is probably the groovy brass band which match up and down the pitch in fine style at half-time.
All in all, the game is quite good fun. You get lots of goals and plenty of incident in every game, but it doesn't shape up well alongside either the other footies such (the older!) Manchnecster United by Krisalis Software.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
As with all three versions, graphics are rather unimpressive and looked outdated for its time with up to 16 colors screen (although running in...VGA mode here), and players completely devoid of any facial characteristics! The only difference between this version and the Amiga and ST version is that, gameplay is quite faster with smooth enough player movements and pitch scrolling. There is no introductory animated scene found only on the Amiga version.
Sound is on the negative side here, offering some simplistic sound effects (no sampled sound found only in the Amiga and ST versions) even with a sound card.
