Eurogamer has posted their preview of Football Manager Handheld.
"Perhaps the most pertinent issue is how you translate a mouse-based control system to the PSP, and the answer is surprisingly simple. A control legend at the bottom of the screen gives players four context-sensitive shortcut options at any one time, making it straightforward to select specific actions quickly and easily. The shoulder buttons, meanwhile, act as 'back' and 'next', and within minutes the general navigation becomes almost as easy as the full game. It'll take a bit of getting used to, for sure, but SI has opted for a pleasingly intuitive solution that's the next best thing. "The beauty [of FM Handheld] is how well the control system works. It's real pick up and play... you do not need the instruction manual."
