Would i like this game?
I've never been deep into soccer. I don't follow it, i don't think i've ever watched a match in my life. I know the basic rules etc. and that's about it.

That said, i've always been interested in the concept of managing a team, and i love the strategy elements the game boasts featuring - the rpg element it claims to introduce is just icing on the top.

I've always wanted to play sports games and team managing games but i'm just not that big into sport and when everything is based on real life in other games it holds me back.

This is a RPG with tactics. I think you will like it, it doesn't ask specific knowledge of football. Anyway, the game comes with a demo version that you can try, and then buy the game because you like the features !

I'm not the greatest football fan myself but at the moment FT is my favourite game. I enjoy playing it so much that it has made me want to watch football matches again after almost 20 years (which I actually did, but the game is so much better :)). If you like management and turn based strategy games (and you would like to run a football team) you will like FT a lot.

I'm going to be as honest as I can here.

Soccer/Football has NEVERRRRR been a sport I cared to watch, I mean the leagues never made any sense, wth is this promoted crap...or a player on loan, or "tranfers"..seriously no idea what they where talking about.

Yes I am American and "Football" is freaking guys getting clobbered on Sunday, and me watching my Saints freaking pass on every freaking down like idiots...

YES I HATEEEEE D. BRESS WITH A PASSION...

That all being said I do like games where you can play as GM/Coach/ *Whatever you call Soccer Coaches* so I said let me try this out and.......

I LOVED IT....

Seriously, no lie, yeah real soccer is BOOORRRRIIINNNGGG as hell, but this game takes all of the boring parts out (falling down faking a leg injury every 3 seconds etc. etc.) and very neatly wraps it in a very short and compact strategy soccer game.

I can honestly say this game educated me on the sport in general and showed me what:

Transfers where (basically what we call free agents)

What promoted meant, and how to get Promoted

What the other trophies meant that where not the "League Trophies", kinda like our NCAA BBall tournament where small teams vs higher league teams in a tournament format (best of 2).

The game is great for people like you and me who honestly do not follow the real sport but like management games, but what is really great, the games are so nicely formated you can play a whole season in a few hours WITHOUT simming any games.

I give it HIGH MARKS overall and for the price it is a MUST.

I might add the devolopers are straight forward, answer any questions, open to ideas, and are vocal in the forums about things being added or NOT being added (MF I'm looking at you)

Now if I could only find a Boxing Manger sim......the world would be a perfect place.

World Championship Boxing Manager is NOT a manager sim, it has no career (allegedly soon it will.....RIIIGGHHTTT...heard that since 1084 BC).

It means in most GM Manager games, the games take so long it takes hours/days and in some games WEEKS to finish a season if you play every game without simming (quickly simulate the outcome of the game instead of playing it).

To play an entire game start to finish in this game it takes at most 5-10 minutes, so in an hour you can play quiet a few games. Compare that to NBA 2k16 where ONE game usually takes 30-45 mins and a season last 82 games and hopefully you understand what I am saying.

Two our active players are working on Spanish localization at the moment. We expect it to be finished in one month.
