Conclusion: This game is so much better than the FIFA 11 manager mode. You control nearly everything. you can change tactics within a match. You see a birds eye view of the match when you or the opponent are about to score, i hope on the 2012 version you can see the whole match from that angle. Another good thing is the amount of leagues you can choose from eg. blue square premier.
Conclusion: I have bought the Football Manager Handheld for 4 seasons now and I just can't get enough of it. Fast delivery via pre-order and I just love it apart from the fact that the match engine needs upgrading a bit but other than that great game a must recomend!
Conclusion: Ive never had a manager game before, so i wasnt sure what to expect with this, but ive found that its really good. Theres a vast range of tactics available to you as a manger. you can send off scouts etc. It can seem quite complicated when you first get it, but if u stick with it, youll be scrolling through it easily within half an hour. obviously there arent really much graphics, its amanager game after all. Durting the game itll show highlights etc..
Summary: This is a very fun and enjoyable game but it's an extremely easy game. I started my first season with Inter Milan and only had a squad of 22 which was my decision, I had numerous injuries but that didn't stop me from winning 5 trophies in my first season, you would think that would take some seasons to achieve. Had a strong squad of Cavani, Nani, Valencia, Lucio, Samuel etc and no depth which should of seen my team punished but obviously wasn't.
Summary: I love football management games. I find the most enjoyable aspect of them is filling a non-league team with youth players, watching them grow up and play together through the divisions right up to the Premiership, and then winning me lots and lots of trophies. It's a strategy I used with the first Football Manager HandHeld game in 2006, and one I still pride myself on with this 2011 edition.

Summary: As someone trying to combine being an author, musician, family man (and hold down a day job) , I don't have the kind of time to play the great sprawling database that is the PC version. So, back in 2006, when the original handheld/PSP FM game came out, I bought one and was sorely disappointed at the lack of detail. I hardly played it and as a result I gave up FM in 2007. How pleased I am to report that this 2011 handheld version is a real return to form.
