Poor graphics and snail pace gameplay destroy this game's attempt to challenge Football Manager... even at a fraction of the price. Read Review
Boring. The characters are badly drawn, the animation is abysmal and the colour choice is even worse. Read Review
There are better football manager games but it's probably tough to find one tougher. Only for the extremely patient. Read Review
It'd be churlish to chastise this cheapie as a cheapskate ripoff, but if you're really interested in the great game, maybe you'd be better off saving your money and going for the real thing! Read Review
Certainly won't win any awards but, if you can excuse the graphics, the time it will take to guide your team to the top will justify the budget price. Read Review
Manage your favourite football team your way. No more matches lost because the manager chose the wrong team or played a wrong combination. Now is your chance to go for Division One. Maybe even win the league and cup double. Who knows? You may even find the manager's job is more difficult than you thought!
Select your team for one of the 64 teams listed. (You can, if you wish, change your team name.) Whichever team you select, you will begin the game at the bottom of Division 4.
There are fifteen league matches to be played in each division, together with 'knock-out' cup matches.
Train your team. The more intense the training, the more chance you stand of winning, but the more expensive the training becomes.
Change your team to combat the strengths of your opponents. Select your Defenders (D), mid-field (M) and attackers (A) on the basis of their skill (S) and fitness (F). In your team, a player is either playing (P), injured (I) or available for play (-). Remember that players need to be rested occasionally to improve their fitness. Skill can not be increased. If a player is not good enough for your team, he can be sold on the transfer market. You can have up to fifteen players in your squad at any time.
At the end of each match, you will be shown the results of other matches played that day, together with a league table showing your position, games won, drawn and lost, goals for and against, and points earned.
At the end of each season, the top three teams and promoted to the next division and the bottom three teams are relegated. You keep the same team for the start of the following season, but the player's skill and fitness levels will be charged.
Can you win the double? Can you take your team to the top of Division One? Will you be voted "Manager of the Year"? Or will the crowd jeer as your team is relegated yet again?
Good luck! You will need it!
