Cult Software have been remarkably busy churning out footy management sim's this month - in fact we've had four of them.

They all take the standard footy sim' formula but each has a different slant ont he genre. So, let's kick off with...

Lordy, a complete departure from footy sims this time. There's a small amount of management involved, transfers for instance, but this time you predominantly play, instead of managing.

Having said that, it's not an arcade footy sim' either. A match is carried out in the following way.

When a goal scoring opportunity occurs your 64 gives you a list of options such as shoot for goal, pass forward, pass backward or head the ball.

Making the right choice will improve your reputation no end and help you towards your ultimate aim, which is to impress your manager so much that he places you in the first team and keeps playing you in each match (great for ego).

Okay, this game may be different in its approach, but sadly that approach is crap. Unless you're a total and utter football-crazy zomboid, give it a miss.



That exciting match in full. None of that boring animated stuff, just text and stars... hmmm, I wonder what's on the telly.
