Score free-kicks, win prizes. That, in essence, is Dell's online World Cup footie game but, as in life generally, the devil's in the detail.

For a start, scoring ain't easy in the Flash-based game (Flasher Player 7 or better needed). Our pathetic attempts resulted in no goals.

Then there's the fact that, if you do master the controls and get your eye in, what you're most likely to win is discounts off all-in-one printers and Axim handhelds. And how many of those are you going to want to buy?
Check out this slightly cynical HEXUS.headline, then tell us your thoughts on Dell's footie game - perhaps boasting about how easy it is.

Or share links to favourite Flash sites - games or otherwise.
