It’s easy to boil down the yearly iterations of Football Manager
into dry lists of statistics and upgrades. Here’s New Feature A that does this, there’s Incremental Improvement B which means that.
Yet its most significant triumph is its interface. It’s a slick, smooth, and classy-looking thing, with large buttons for the fat or clumsy of thumb, inventive shortcuts, slide controls, and a drag-and-drop setup for easy substitutions, tactical tweaks, and more.
It even looks - dare we say it - attractive. In a game that's essentially a series of spreadsheets, that’s no mean feat. It’s gone from having a face only a mother could love to the managerial equivalent of Ryan Gosling.
Still in a league of its own, the premier portable management sim is back and better than ever
