We have just posted our Football Manager 2006 review. Find out what John Griffin has to say about it.
"Let’s be honest with one another. Sports Interactive could just issue each edition of Football Manager (Worldwide Soccer Manager in the USA) with nothing more than a data update and fans would all buy it on launch day. Anyone who has been around this “soccer RPG” knows its addictive grasp on one's life and how in-depth the game really is. As fans of the series will know, from the outside you just sit there with an expressionless face, not moving very much and rarely muttering a word. On the inside, you can hear the fans chanting “You don’t know what you’re doing”; you can feel your foot booting that water bottle across the changing room at your failing team. So, before I even take the shrink wrap off my imported copy, I'm looking forward to it - but does the 2006 edition carry the torch well?"
