EMLYN HUGHES INTERNATIONAL SOCCER was released on pretty much every modern computer of its time, and this happened not only once but up to three times: first as an original Audiogenic release, then as part of at least one compilation (Soccer Stars by Empire Software) and finally when the Touchdown rereleases hit the shelves between 1990 and 1993. Consequently, the game ended up getting reviewed in just about every gaming magazine published within the six years spanning from 1988 to 1993, often with a new review for each individual release.

This means that there is an abundance of Emlyn Hughes International Soccer reviews out there, of which we have so far managed to locate the ones listed below. Thanks to some extremely good-hearted individuals, scans of the articles marked with a green checkmark can also be accessed by clicking the magazine name. Just a word of warning, however: the scanned images are each over 100kb, with some being almost half a megabyte.

Before offering the reviews, we want to take a moment to thank the generosity of the webmasters and other people of the following websites, as they have kindly allowed us to use their scans here:

+ Amigan Software
+ The Def Guide to Zzap!64

CANDIDATES

There are a lot of magazines that we still haven't checked for Emlyn Hughes International Soccer reviews. These include: 64er (Germany), Amiga World, Computer Gamer, C&VG.

In addition to those, the magazines that we have already found articles from may contain more, as the game was released a number of times.

If you can help us to check any of these magazines, or know of other magazines that might have reviewed EHIS (in any language!), please contact us!


FOUND LACKING

We have gone through the following publications and found that they never reviewed EHIS: C=Lehti (Finland), Mikrobitti (Finland). Shame on them!


NOT AROUND

Just to make the list complete, let us also point out that the following famous gaming magazines that might have reviewed EHIS didn't do so for the simple reason that they were not published at the time (1988-1993) or did not concentrate on the platforms EHIS was released on: Amtix (pub. 1985-1987), Big K (pub. 1984-1985), Pelit (Finland, pub. 1992-), Personal Computer Games (pub. 1983-1984)
