Excerpt: "...on the management of the football club chosen, the quality of the graphics whilst sufficient is not particularly exciting. You can select to view the stadium and crowd which makes it a little more interesting viewing. Watching a match in 3D mode, the graphics are generic and it appears that team/player instructions are not reflected on the pitch. Sometimes, when tactical changes are made during the game, the match pauses although the players look ...
Pros: tactical and dynamic football management game
Cons: gameplay can be a little repetitive, poor 3D match
Football Manager 2011 - Brilliant interactive gameplay
5 September 2011
Excerpt: "I had been playing on Football Manager 2008 for some time and was getting bored of the predictability, time for an update I thought. I bought Football Manager 2011 from Amazon for £11.99, and what a bargain it has turned out to be! The amount of detail in the game is phenomenal, and it is far too easy to get addicted to it. I started the game as Mansfield Town FC in the Blue Square Premier and I am in my second season, now struggling in League Two. ...
Excerpt: "...the world? Slowly and carefully. Football Manager 2011 does not bring with it great revolutions, but it has enough innovations and changes to keep its place at the top of the table. It is hard to write reviews on "yearly games" (renewed annually). Sometimes this is a major revolution which faces us with a new game(for better or worse), and sometimes you need magnifying glass to identify the changes. Anyway - this is a sophisticated version of "Spot ...

Excerpt: "...buy player and at rangers football club i received seven million, over all the game is fun and easy but very addictive! I would strongly recommend to read the manual before playing as it can get complex , i know this is said about most games but i would strongly recommend it as this is a mistake i have made in the past. I have also got the game on the ipod touch, this is a fun hand held version of the game which i found equally spectacular if not ...
Pros: Simple to use, Easy gameplay, variety of teams and competitions
Conclusion: If you've ever played any of Football Manager titles from the last four or five years this 2011 version will not really hold any suprises for you. There is the odd evolution from last year, the most important being more detailed and realistic transfer and contract negotations with computer controlled teams and players now far more willling to budge from their initial demands. As you would expect the teams are also fully updated up to the September 2010 transfer window.
Conclusion: Most people know what to expect from a football manager game by now. Every new version of the game is the best manager game ever and this is no exception. The updates over the previous year are slight but there are many.
Football Manager 2011 (PC): Guaranteed to get you hooked.
26 February 2011
Summary: This is just the latest of a long line of championship managers and football managers, i myself have been playing since championship manager 01/02 which i regard as one of the best in the series but for a more up to date laying experience this cannot be beaten. The 3d match engine has been vastly improved since last year and appears to be on it's way to looking more like fifa which i can only hope adds to the realism and doesn't take away from the vast experience which...
Pros: 3d match engine, new tactic trainer
Cons: Need a newish computer to use the 3d match engine
