FIFA International Soccer is a soccer simulation where you can take control of a team during matches. Your goal is to win the match. You can also determinate your tactic and the players' positions.
Based on international teams (with fictional player names), their abilities in each skill area are rated out of 10 to give the player an overall impression of how good they are. The options available follow the standard set: fouls and offsides can be toggled on and off, the match length can be set, and if the timer operates continuously, or only while the ball is in play. Gameplay privileges include quick runs, short passes and blistering shots outside the penalty box, and set pieces are controlled by moving a box into the target area for the ball, and then passed, lobbed or kicked directly. On the tactical side, formations can be selected with 5 different strategies also available as can the team coverage - the areas which defenders, midfielders and strikers cover.
