A simple and very fast paced soccer game. No nifty tricks, very straightforward.

Get this if you're looked for a cheap priced, fast paced soccer game.

Slightly unstable, as expected from a game made in 98 or whenever Actua 3 was made, but it is 100% bearable.

The game won't even run. I want my money back. As soon as it launches it says "actua99 has stopped working" then it crashes.
You need to have a play time of 5 minutes to write a review so I had to stare at THIS for 5 minutes because that is the only way for me to "play" the game.

Overall, I would say that the whole experience isn't worth the money to be honest.

360 controller works too, although can't change config.

Game is what you will remember it as

It doesn't make any sense in relaunching a classing game and not supporting newer operative systems... A complete waste of money until they patch it.

As of right now, I have been unable to find a work-around to allow this game to run at all on Windows 8, and based on comments here and in the forums, this is far from the only operating system with such issues. I don't understand why they would re-release an old game in such a way without having it be at least somewhat functional on modern systems. In any case, unless you're running a really old OS, you should likely avoid this except in a bundle or something, because even if you're not on Windows 8, there's definitely a good chance the game still won't launch. At least, that's my recommendation unless/until a patch or fix comes around. P.S.: I saw the warning posted on the store page, and it's a very good thing it's there now. I don't recall seeing it when I got this game in a bundle, at least that I noticed, so hopefully this review is a bit more visible. In any case, I wanted to at least try to play a game I paid for, even if only as part of a bundle.

Not worth buying unless/until it is patched to work with modern operating systems. I've given up trying to play it on Windows 7. Googling for an answer seems to give lots of people saying they can't play it and no answers.

Seems to have no working sound during games, can't reconfigure controls. Maybe pick it up if it's less than $1/1€ and it brings some nostalgia.

What a terrible take on a classic game. The only sound that works is "Let Me Entertain You" by Robbie Williams (there is literally no sound in matches) and although you CAN play with a 360 controller, you can't change the buttons so you've basically gotta figure it out in a match.. Not good!
