First in Krisalis' trio of soccer games based on the exploits of the eponymous team, Manchester United Europe is a fun action soccer game that lets you lead this popular club in major European tournaments, including the European Cup, European Cup Winners Cup, UEFA Cup, European Super Cup, and even the World Club Championship – a more obscure tournament held each year in Japan.

Although the PC version is inferior to the Amiga original (which features excellent graphics and four-player action via a four-player joystick adapter), it's still a very good game that incorporates plenty of details that will delight fans of the sport. You can, for example, easily execute one-touch aftertouch tricks. In contrast to most other soccer games of the era, you also have full control over your goalie. Coaching options, while much more limited than specialized soccer sims, are adequate: you can do substitutions, see players get yellow and red cards from the referee, and watch action replays. There's little difference between "full simulation" and "arcade" mode since the effects of your coaching strategies aren't too obvious. Still, Manchester United Europe paves the way to more full-fledged soccer games from Krisalis, and is great fun for casual soccer fans who are confident in their joystick skills. It's not Sensible Soccer, but it has its own personality and style that deserve a closer look. Thumbs up for this one!
