Ratings and Reviews
Worth every single little penny
Usually every new version of this game is a glorified roster update with a few new little perks per version. This time, this game is wholly updated in every metric that mattered at least to me. Starting with the UI, it’s clean, efficient and gives even the most basic and inexperienced managers the tools needed to run a successful club. The amount of clubs you can play as includes full professional league structures in every major soccer playing nation in the world, England, Spain, France, Italy, Germany to name a few and most top flight leagues are fully licensed. I wish they would add USL and NASL to the USA leagues but being able to play as the head coach of the Sounders is good enough for me. The game creates players for teams so that they constantly have talent coming through the ranks and if you want to spend the 8 bucks to purchase the editor you can make those players world class, change all the stats and positions for any player in the world. There is still so much left to cover in this review and I’ve only scratched at maybe a quarter of all the content. Seriously, if you love soccer and management games, this is the game for you. Period. (But seriously SEGA, add the div. 2 leagues as playable for USA)
I thought this would be just a rehash, but there are some key elements here that make this iteration of FMM worth every penny.
Visually, the UI is streamlined with the tabs option, to give that PC look, or you can use the windows. Next, the option for HD interface makes everything look crispy and up to date. Next the color scheme change, while not a game changer, adds a modern and moodier vibe that makes the game feel like it is from, you know, this decade.
Next, the ability to negotiate live makes negotiation less of chore and waiting game and more exciting and realistic. Thank goodness.
The updates to training are good, as now we can pick specific elements of training to focus on which can impact the role we want a player in, and we can control individual intensity levels of regimes to allow for boosts in training... and risk of injury. Also l, a post match menu shows which players are actually improving from playing and which may be stagnant, helping in decisions such as who will keep the team progressing and who is bringing it down.
Lastly, the match time interface is improved with replays and speed sliders, so you don’t miss anything, or if you want to fly through a friendly match.
Overall, thanks SI for making a better version of FMM.
Some ideas: maybe women’s leagues? Also, manager contract negotiations?
A difficult adjustment
As always it is fairly boring to watch dots pass the ball back and forth. The PC version provides some stimulus in that you can actually see the goals and players on the field. The game has no music so you might want to have a playlist ready while playing this game, and I find that the game isn’t very new player friendly. I find it kind of ridiculous that I can choose 4 League that have a combined total of 23,000 generated players, but I can’t choose 5 smaller leagues with a combined total of players that’s less than the previous 4 leagues. It’s also quite shocking that you can’t delete your previous or current career mode saves, as you have to either do it through a computer, or delete and reinstall the game entirely. The rating system doesn’t make much sense to me, I don’t understand how Messi (5 stars) can be rated the same as other players who aren’t as good.
