Test your footie knowledge with the much-loved retro football
show from yesteryear. A generation of football fans grew up
with Saint and Greavsie on Saturday afternoons, providing
sometimes-insightful commentary, but more often than not,
an amusingly irrelevant look at the week in football...
and Greavsie's Football Quiz is an interactive DVD for
one to two players or teams. The questions are either video
clips, with a 'what happened next' motif or static multi-choice
To be honest it's hard to know what to make of this and maybe
I'm not the best person to review it as my interest in football
extends to knowing what it is and who a few players are. This
I attest to having been beaten up as a teenager for not liking
football, which coloured my view of those that do. Still,
I also have fond memories of whiling away the odd Saturday
in the company of Ian St John and Jimmy Greaves, mostly because
they found so much humour in two teams of grown men kicking
a bladder around a field.
DVD is pretty easy to use and follows the format of jolly
banter, the aforementioned multiple choice or video questions
and then scores. You can choose to play as either Scotland
or England, a fact I presume reflects the nationalities of
the hosts rather than a dislike of Wales or Ireland.
Visually, the shots of S & G look like they have been shot
on a digital camera without a proper white balance, making
the over bright cheap set a bit of a blinder, this is not
a DVD to put on with a hangover. The quality of the excerpts
from various matches is understandably variable, but the overall
effect is of a game with pretty low production values.
as a non-football fan it's obvious that this game should not
be played on your own, but rather with a few mates after a
liberal libation, as a solitary pastime it's less than satisfying.
