4 out of 5
On the brink of modern football manager prowess
There are most certainly better soccer managers out there, even within the Championship Manager series
, but, if you want to try your hand with the teams of the 1994/95 seasons, this can be a good way to do it. As with most managers of the era, don't expect anything other than a good though crude set of interaction options, offering you the chance to model your team from the very personal, pet talking direct influence on players, to the level of field tactics and soccer player trade. The game is pretty good looking, again, given the level of the era, with every control screen having a good layout that will be conducive towards simple and rapid management. You don't have to wonder where you can find a setting or other, as the nesting of the interface is build quite well and follows a very simple logic. Other than that, the game seems to simulate the championship very well and to take into account your changes, the most immediate however being the ones that affect each individual game played. While this is not the most modern game ever, it's nonetheless very playable and I recommend it to fans of the genre.
