Actua Soccer 3 on PC and PS1 is the third and last installment of the Gremlin Interactive football simulation series. The creators have made it a priority to improve the solutions from the previous parts of the series and supplement them with new elements.
Players again have the opportunity to direct the players of their favourite teams. This time the database contains information about four hundred and fifty teams from twenty-five national leagues, in which ten thousand players play in total. Official licenses of football federations allowed the creators to use authentic club names and athletes' names.
The creators remained faithful to the tried and tested gameplay mechanisms of the two previous editions of the cycle, but enriched them with new elements, such as the possibility of correcting the tactics used by the team formations during the game. The quality of weather effects, which affect not only the visual layer of virtual matches, but also the behaviour of the ball and players, has also been improved.
Technically, the game is based on an improved version of the graphical engine previously used in Actua Soccer 2. In the audio layer it was decided to change one of the commentators. The place of Trevor Brooking was taken by Martin O'Neill (former manager of Celtic Glasgow club), who is a partner of BBC's well-known sports rapporteur Barry Davies. On the soundtrack of Actua Soccer 3 you can hear Robbie Williams' song Let Me Entertain You.
