There's always been an inherent problem with nostalgia. It works a little like a good post-processing filter, cleaning up the jagged edges and rough lines that our memories don't remember or choose to overlook.
But some of the classics, the gems of yesteryear, cannot be brushed up, improved or glossed over. And one of those has been held up for decades as a pinnacle of great design, pacing, graphics and content. Hell, Amiga Power once praised it as the best game of all time. That game: Sensible World Of Soccer.
My response: bullshit.
