Gary Lineker's Superskills

Seeing that everyone's getting (or always has been) thoroughly sick and tired of anything to do with football, this seems like an ideal opportunity to take a look at... another footie game. It's essentially a joystick waggler, where you have to work your way through a never-ending series of events (press-ups, weight lifting, penalties etc. etc.) with the general intention of sorting out Gary's footie playing (and he could certainly do with a bit of improvement, eh, West Germans?). The presentation is up to scratch, but the game itself is, well... Once you've done one squat thrust you really won't feel like doing any more. And when you find out that the monkey bars and weight lifting are along very much the same sort of lines, well, Gary is likely to be paid a visit by old Mr Reset Button.

Not an inspiring re-release.
