Football Manager

Ah, now we're talking. One of the legends of computer gaming, Football Manager has sold hundreds of thousands of copies on every conceivable format, from ZX81 to MSX to Atari ST.

A classic strategy game, it's still massively addictive today, though it's been out-featured by practically every other game in the genre since. The Amiga version, sadly, isn't half as good as even the Spectrum one.

The match highlights - the game's centre-piece - are unbelievably slow and tedious, and without their hook the gameplay is left looking as slight as it actually is. Dig out your old 8-bit and play it on that instead.
