  • 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?

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.

  • Cons: Lack of position variety, Lack of difficulty once you've acquired a brilliant team

  • 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.

  • 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
