Soccer management games are all pretty much of a muchness. Other than things like the top of the range Football Manager there are no really outstanding or truly dire ones.

This particular offering, falls into this midfield. While not the best of its kind, it is pretty entertaining stuff. This is due in no small part to the icon driven gameplay. These icons consist of the faces of the various people involved in running a team painted over a backdrop of a footie stadium.

The manager, the coach, the physio, the scout and the bank manager are all here to either give information on the team's progress and status or changed certain factors. For example, the bank manager leands you money, the scout handles transfers and so on.

When the team is to your liking, you can sit back and watch the highlights of the match. Roar as your team scroes. Boo as the opposition rocket a penalty past your goalie.

There are loads of features, all easily accessed through the icons. You will find a wealth of depth of play if you want to scratch beneath the slick and deceptively simple surface. Kenny Dalglish Soccer Manager is the kind of game you can walk away from to make a cup of tea, and come back to with a winning strategy.


Give it a whirl (unless of course you already own a management sim).

Judging from the angle of the United goalie's leap, Rotheram look set to score again (and again). Blimey, these arcade sequences are dead exciting, don't they.
