Take your division to ultimate glory!
Club Football: The Manager is a fun, simple, and yet well done soccer management game, in which you start with a division level soccer team, and, step by step you mould it into something larger than life, something higher and bigger. The great thing about this game is that it looks great: it is in 2D, yet it uses some well produced isometric windows for certain activities. For instance, when you establish the tactical play, the way your player will be set on the field at the beginning of the game, you can see it all in a very good looking window, with lots of additional info available almost immediately. Another advantage of this game is that you can select and train individual players, if you see fit, and you can also create training sessions for entire teams. Else, the usual strategy and management options are included, from the buying and the selling of teams to everything else. Not extraordinary, indeed, but lots of fun, nonetheless. A good alternative can always be one of those Premier Manager games
, which have proven sturdy and fun in their iterations.
