  • Excerpt: "...I'd simply call it a Football Manager simulator. Football manager is a series of games produced by Sports Interactive (SI) and began life as Championship Manager way back in 1992 and was published by Eidos Interactive. SI then split from the publisher and lost the rights to the name, so, with new publisher Sega, renamed the series in 2005. The series has been consistently popular for a number of years and I, among many, purchase the new games year ...
  • Pros: Addictive to weirdos like me
  • Cons: Slow and time consuming if played the way it was meant to be .

Football Manager 2012 (PC): FM12: Ups and Downs.

  • Summary: First of all I'd like to begin by stating that I was always a FIFA player up until about 2010 which is when I got bored of repetition and was pointed towards a more Managerial role. What I have found with the FM series is that the database never fails to blow me away by being so vast and extensive, player, club and country knowledge shown by the developers is absolutely second to none, to me, this is half of the appeal, I find with games like this the attention to detail...
  • Pros: Huge player database, definitely one of my favourite points,
  • Cons: 3D Match is disappointing.

  • Excerpt: "Football Manager is a franchise of games which has become a very addictive game since the first games came out in 2005. Back then the game was very basic as new concepts were added each year ready for the next instalment. This year the 2012 edition has become so huge in how many features the game has that they will have trouble when it comes to next year’s edition to come out aiming to topple it. Installation. I have rarely done a review where ...
  • Pros: There is plenty to do on there and win

Football Manager 2012 review by JoeB23

  • Excerpt: "Without doubt my favourite football management simulation game available on PC. The vast amount of facts and statistics the game offers are astounding. The game itself is excellent and very comparable to real life football management. In most cases it is realistic and very challenging. The sheer amount of different playable teams is unbelievable. In my opinion, this is a title that will take some beating. I found the game very challenging yet also ...
  • Pros: The game is so in - depth .  It has so many more playable leagues than console rivals such as FIFA 12 .
  • Cons: The game can become repetitive and is not always very realistic .

  • Excerpt: "...you have to be a football lover in order to get the most out of this. I've been getting football manager for the last 5 years, I still enjoy it a lot, I guess that is the only bad thing, you have to buy a new one every year, because of all the new players at clubs and everything.So I recommend football manager to you.... unless you don't have the heart for it, and don't like controlling every aspect of a team.Also the team talks ...
  • Pros: Great gameplay, quick, easy to use, new team talks
  • Cons: Addictive, need to get the new one every year

A Revolution rather than an Evolution

  • Conclusion: After taking a few years to establish itself the Football Manager (previously Championship Manager) series has continued its gradual evolution into what is now the most detailed and realistic soccer management game by far. Anyone that has played any of the previous entries in the series over the last decade will know what to expect whilst less experienced players will find FM2012 the most accessible yet with better tutorials than ever before.

  • Conclusion: To anyone saying that this game MUST BE RUN THROUGH STEAM - fear no more - simply open steam and click on "Go Offline" - this can be found in the top left hand corner under the tab "Steam" and hey presto it works offline perfectly.

Good Buy

  • Conclusion: Brought this game for my brother so that he can play it on his Laptop at University. Not so much my sort of game, but he enjoys it so it's been a good purchase. I've tried to play these games and have liked them but my advice is, if you're not a patient gamer then you won't find it, or others like it, very re-playable.

  • Excerpt: "...way it is better than Football Manager 2011 in my opinion is that, there is more interactivity and more responsiveness from the players. The objectives of the game is to coach and manage a football team of your choice, or you can select a team at random to manage, or you can choose from most football leagues. You can choose to start in lower divisions to start with, or you can you jump straight into managing a top flight team. ==Graphics== The ...
  • Pros: Much improved gameplay and interactivity
  • Cons: Still not enough players pictures out of the box
