It's been a bumper year for games. DirectX 10 might not have offered everything we were promised, but the latest crop of consoles has meant a steady stream of incredible-looking, engrossing games in every imaginable category. Here's our pick of...

Well after my recent posts about the Football Manager 2008 trailer and FM 2008 demo – despite being a recovering football manager addict, having not really played the last two instalments, I’ve succumbed to the dark side and have got...

Still head and shoulders above its football management sim rivals, but no great advance on last years effort. Having topped the league of football management sims for almost as long as Sir Alex has been terrorising the touchline at Old Trafford,...

Its still the best football management game on the planet, and its also a little friendlier too. Predictably, there arent dramatic improvements over last year, but this is still an excellent piece of software and deeper than the Pacific. Sega -...

If you happen to be reading this whilst residing in good old U S on A, you will not recognise the title of this game. Nope, you will know this title as Worldwide Soccer Manager 2008. The reason I mention this is no other than a service to our American...

Nov 14, 2007Somehow, the Football Manager series is both an acquired taste and a huge success.A possible explanation for this is simple: it does something ostensibly very dull but does it very well. Let’s face it, screen after screen of stats and...

If you consider every developer in the whole world, yes ever single one of them, it would be fair to say that SI are easily one of the more consistent at churning out a good game year after year. It seems that every year, without fail, you can rely on...

Despite having a great love and affinity for the Football Manager series and the past glories of its developer Sports Interactive, reviewing one of its games remains something of a poison chalice. Why? Well, anyone who has played a Football...

Player screens are now overflowing with information, including the happiness of the player and their plans for the future. There’s so much information that some of it could be deemed useless, but it all adds in some small way to creating a...

Despite regularly selling more than most PC titles combined, Football Manager still enjoys a reputation as something of a hardcore game. Largely impenetrable to the non-believer, its almost obligatory for scoffers to dismiss it as little more than a...

International Review By GameElite on 90

Football Manager serien är och har alltid varit fotbollsspelet för den mer intellektuella fotbollsfanatikern. I stället för att fokusera på hur man ska vinna så måste man fokusera på hur man ska gå i vinst, ekonomiskt sett alltså. Detta låter ju...

Los simuladores de deportes, y sobre todo los de fútbol son uno de los productos de éxito asegurado en el mercado de videojuegos. Como el resto de los títulos, Football Manager 2008 nos pone en la piel de un entrenador cuyo objetivo es...

Dette spillet er absolutt å anbefale for de som ønsker å prøve seg som manager i en fotballklubb. Og for de som har spilt de tidligere utgavene, er dette enda...

International Review By Daily Rush on 70

Man kan ikke sige at Football Manager 2008 har rykket sig gevaldigt i forhold til 07-versionen. Man kunne godt have ønsket sig mere, men det er også set ud fra en garvet FM’ers synspunkt. Hvis man er ny spiller, er der oceaner af...

Jaha. Så satt man där med sprutan i armen igen. De lider av sitt World of Warcraft-beroende bör hålla sig långt borta från Football Manager-serien, som trots sin uppenbara nisch alltid brukar toppa...

International Review By Gamers Globe on 80

Den legendariske manager-serie er tilbage med nye tiltag og gamle kendinger, men er det nok til at holde standarden oppe?Det var engang kendt som Championship Manager, men efter et internt opgør med Eidos, fik Sports Interactive liv i serien og...

Same procedure as every year, James. Ett klassiskt citat, och även något som Sports Interactive verkar gå efter vad gäller deras Football Manager-serie, som år efter år är likadant"– med ett par fräcka tillägg. Vem James är i detta fall vet jag...
