Review of 'Football Manager'

Rating:5 User: Rebelstar Without a Cause

When you think of Football Manager you think of the match highlights featuring udg matchstick men lurching around the screen. Despite the crude graphics it was a great feature and made for some tense and exciting games. Another feature I like is the players energy levels which decrease with each game they play. Let it get too low and they risk picking up injuries. This adds a level of strategy as you decide whether to play your best team every game or rest key players against lesser opposition.
Kevin Toms masterpiece created a new genre and there soon followed hundreds of football management games. But none could match the brilliance and fun of this game.
