It was that day before the first of the play-offs. We'd had a good season so far and were determined to win through to the Superbowl. As coach, it was all down to me to decide who was going to be playing and what tactics were to be used. Sounds like a nightmare, don't it. Headcoach is a sort of a yankee Football Manager. It's entirely menu-driven and you have to take the part of headcoach or manager of your favourite team and try to play then through to the big 'S'. Before each match you have to decide which players will be playing and in what position. Then if that ain't enough, between each play you have to choose the tactics. Phew!

Headcoach is brilliant. Anyone who misses it at this price is a real fumbler.

Overall Summary

An excellent and deep strategy program now released on budget that will appeal to Am-Foot fanatics as well.
