A solid football game
Football Manager 2000 is one of the many FM games and is the sequel to the Football Manager 99
. You have a great variety of team choices and the squat details are mainly correct from the real life ones. As in real life, you have to pay the player to play for you, and you have to bid to get him if you really want him in your team. The sound and graphics are greatly improved from the 1999 one. The menus are very detailed and the options are various. You can play in single player mode or go online. The gameplay is mainly drag 'n drop, so maybe the bad thing is that you cant move your players with keyboard arrows, like in most soccer games. The game is challenging since the AI is really well written. All in all, the game has a lot to improve (which it has in the future), but still it is a solid soccer game simulation which will bring fun to all football fans but if you're up to something more modern, check out Football Manager 2005
or some newer version.
