Football Manager 2012 Review


The widow maker that is Football Manager is back and with 800 new features, there are improvements across the board.

Ability to turn leagues off and on is a great addition ; Immense depth and interaction ; Tutorial mode to help new players ; Better contract negotiations

3D match engine is poor and slows everything down ; Could still overwhelm first time players ; Occasional unrealistic glitches

Football Manager 2012 Review


Boasting Ferguson's functionality and the flair of Mourino, the king of footie sims is back.

Is Football Manager 2012 a revolution? Probably not, but in that respect it's a victim of its own success. When a game is this colossal, this rich, it's hard to see how it could possibly be bettered, match engine excepted. Is it worth shelling out 30...

10 minutes left. Time is rapidly ticking down, only moments remaining until your dream of lifting the coveted trophy is dismissed for another year. In a last ditch attempt to snatch the vital goal that would bring glory to the club and send thousands...

The lack of new features doesn’t take away the highly addictive gameplay and hours of fun you could waste with this title. The redesigned match day portion and new Skin are welcome additions to the game and will make you feel even more like a...

Football Manager 2008 - PC review at Thunderbolt Games


It's been a funny year for sports titles, at least here in Europe. Skate wandered into the fray and stole the spotlight from the tired beaten horse that is the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series whilst FIFA 2008 surprised us all with a very decent, if far...

Football Manager 2008


A season of consolidation

Completely absorbing ; Fully updated rosters, clubs, teams ; Most realistic football sim

Hasn't really changed at all ; Boring to non-fans ; Frustrating transfer market

Football Manager 2008



The Transfer Center feature shows you what players you are bidding on and which of your players are about to be offered a new contract by another club. Handy, rival games have had it before and hardly worth mentioning.

Football Manager 2008 Review


The game that has made so many girls/women leave their boyfriends/husbands is back again and it promises to unleash the usual havoc on our social lives...

The same great FM gameplay and content ; New ability to re-arrange transfer/wage budgets ; A myriad of minor enhancements

Slightly superfluous re-design ; Not many new features since last year ; Some of the new features are a bit shallow

It's another year and another Football Manager. When good things are this consistent we often forget how lucky we are to have them. That said, this year's game is particularly thin on new features, but it's still the same great package that's been...

Football Manager 2006


(Compatibility Note: I'd like to point out that, while this game is designated for European (PAL) systems, it works perfectly fine on any U.S. Xbox 360. It's completely region free, so import away if soccer is your passion.)

I can only recommend this game to soccer fanatics, statisticians looking for a good time, or gamerscore junkies desperate for a leg up on the competition as less than 1% of users listed on MyGamerCard have even played this game. Everyone else should...

Football Manager 2006


There are many great managers out there. Bobby Robson, Alex Ferguson and José Mourinho, just to name a few. But they're still always getting grief from the likes of us who think we can do better. “What is he thinking?! He's nowhere near top-flight...
