Human Sports Festival (ヒューマンスポーツフェスティバル) is a compilation of sports games developed by Human Entertainment for Super CD-ROM² hardware. There are three games in the compilation, two of which are modified versions of games previously released for the PC Engine.

Games included

Human Sports Festival presents the user with a menu to select a game, along with voiced introductions to the compilation and each game. The user can also read instruction screens which also includes advice on how to play each of the games.

Performing a software reset (HOLD  RUN  SELECT ) during gameplay in any of the games will return the user to that game's title screen, while performing it on the title screen will exit the game and return the user to the game select menu.

Fine Shot Golf

Fine Shot Golf is a golf game and the only unique game in the compilation.

Formation Soccer: Human Cup '92

Formation Soccer: Human Cup '92 is a modified version of the earlier-released Formation Soccer: Human Cup '90. The game retains the same gameplay modes and a roster of 16 national teams to choose from, though the list of teams is now different:

  • Argentina Argentina
  • Belgium Belgium
  • Brazil Brazil
  • Cameroon Cameroon
  • Colombia Colombia
  • England England
  • France France
  • Netherlands Holland
  • Ireland Ireland
  • Italy Italy
  • Japan Japan
  • Romania Romania
  • Uruguay Uruguay
  • United States of America USA
  • Germany West Germany
  • Yugoslavia Yugoslavia

However, the roster is outdated by 1992, as the Federal Republic of Germany (more commonly known as West Germany) had not existed since 1990 after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the breakup of Yugoslavia was ongoing during the development and release of Human Sports Festival, and would conclude two months after its release. Human Cup '90 was released at least five months before the German reunification and about a year before the breakup of Yugoslavia began, so West Germany and Yugoslavia's inclusions made more sense there.

Final Match Tennis Ladies

Final Match Tennis Ladies is a modified version of the earlier-released Final Match Tennis. As its title implies, this version features a roster of only female players.
