  • Excerpt: When it comes to football management on the move, your choices are pretty limited. I say limited, but I actually mean that this is basically it. Given the raft of absolutely dire titles that have hit the DS of late – Imagine: Dream Weddings, anyone? – it is an absolute surprise that such a popular genre has taken so long to turn up a game.

Review: Football Director DS

N-Europe
28 January 2009
  • Conclusion: With an open field in which to run, Football Director makes a sterling debut, gripping from the first whistle to the last kick. Though a lack of difficulty and positional diversity stops the title from becoming a true Premier league player.
  • Pros: Solidly designed interface, Captures the subject matter suitably, Can be very deep
  • Cons: Lack of position variety, Lack of difficulty once you've acquired a brilliant team

Football Director DS Nintendo DS Review

DarkZero
2 December 2008
  • Excerpt: The football management genre is the perfect match for mobile gaming, particularly for those with a long commute. Considering how mainstream the Nintendo DS has become, it’s surprising EA and SEGA have not brought their football management games onto the system. Instead, Football Director is the genre’s first foray onto the DS. It makes a good first impression, allowing you to pick any team from the top 4 English leagues.

Football Director DS Review

  • Conclusion: If it hasn’t been made clear to you by now, Football Director DS could be considered as more of a strategy game than a sports game, but a fun strategy game regardless. It will be curious to see how well this game performs commercially; if it does well, you’ll probably see it pave the way for many more similar games in the future. If it’s not quite your cup of tea, then stick to FIFA.

  • Conclusion: Superbly presented with a strong licence to back everything up, we still reckon a bit more depth and managerial options will make it a better series in the future
