      Different areas of football management than other games have but not quite there

      Fifa has for a number of years been the star of EA Sports gaming catalogue but their other offering for the football fans out there has for a number of years been poorly received so with a new Fifa Manager out and my love of football management games I decided this would be the last time I game this a chance and I am glad I did despite it not being the best football management game out there.

      The game sees you take over the running of a football club of your choice from over 80 leagues and working hard to develop things at the club to enable for you to become the best team you possibly can be. The depth of the things you are working on developing is superb in that you can purchase youth camps, send your players on holidays to help with their fitness and morale, develop your club shop and much more which is something that for me other football management games lack. I love having these other areas of the club to work on as I think that this gives a whole new depth to a gaming genre which is very focused on the amount of players named in the databases over other things sometimes.

      The game is easy to navigate and to get to grips with and setting out your team the way you want to is something you will be able to do very quickly. The transfer system is simple to use and helps you to work out what you have in your team and if there is better out there you can actually get which enables for you to be able to play the game with an enjoyment factor rather than needing to sit and do a huge amount of background work on players to still do well which for me is something I find I really enjoy sometimes and will find myself playing this for a number of weeks or months without missing the more serious gaming of other football management games.

      The biggest thing I love about this game is the ability to develop your stadium as you can then really feel like you are developing something which I think is always good to have as you want to use these things as escapism and this helps to draw you into another world.

      The ability to watch your team take to the pitch and play the matches is something which is great but a big let down is that whilst Fifa itself has moved on and developed the game engine and graphics standards of Fifa Manager 13 has not improved for a number of years and you truly do get a feeling this is a franchise coming to the end of its life.
