Review of 'Football Manager 2'

Rating:4 User: Rebelstar Without a Cause

All good things must come to a sequel so it was almost inevitable that Kevin Toms would follow up on his masterpiece.
Everything's a lot more slicker this time around as the whole thing was written in machine code. The match highlights have returned but this time you get to see the whole pitch and not just the goal mouth action. These highlights are also the game's undoing because while some matches are over fairly quickly some drag on for what seems like hours. It's a shame really because in many ways this is a better game than it's predecessor. However, because of the (seemingly) never ending matches playing through a season can be a tough slog. For this reason the original Football Manager will always be preferable.
Football Manager 2 is still one of the better management games on the spectrum and is well worth checking out.
