    Sensible Soccer, or Sensible Soccer: European Champions is an entry in the Sensible Soccer series of football games. Despite its name, the Sega versions of Sensible Soccer are in fact based upon the Amiga/Atari ST Sensible Soccer 92/93, an update to the "real" Sensible Soccer which was released exclusively for these computers.

    This Sensible Soccer was released for the Sega Mega Drive, Sega Mega-CD, Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear. In North America, the game was renamed Championship Soccer '94 and only the Mega-CD version was sold at retail. The Mega Drive version was seemingly sold only as a rental gameMore...[8], though plans may have existed at some point to sell this version commercially too.

    An update in the form of Sensible Soccer: International Edition was made available for the Mega Drive.
