Description of Bundesliga Manager Professional
The Manager is an excellent soccer simulation game that is unfortunately much less popular than Championship Manager, current champion of the genre.
While Bundesliga Manager, the game’s German league equivalent, sells very well in Europe and is being continually updated, this England league counterpart was discontinued years ago. That the game’s relative anonymity is undeserved is obvious from the first few minutes you spend with the game.
For starter, it includes accurate statistics for the players and clubs in the 1992/1993 Premier League season in England. As manager of a Division 3 club, your job is to lead the team up through the ladder, finishing up hopefully as the Premier League champion. The range of control is comprehensive: you decide on the tactics to use for each match, as well as managerial tasks such as negotiation contracts with star players and sponsors, and investing in stadium expansions.
One of the neat details that make the game memorable for me is how the game represents each match. Although the game’s emphasis is definitely on coaching and managing the team, it doesn’t present match results in static screens as you would expect. Instead, you will see animations of players on the screen, with each important event (such as scoring, of course) depicted very fluidly. You can turn these graphical extras off if you want, but to me they really enliven the gameplay and are even exciting to watch. The only other game I can recall from the same period that animates matches like this is On The Ball, but The Manager is a couple of years older.
With accurate statistics, excellent game engine, a solid gameplay, and plenty of nice little touches, The Manager belongs in the top echelon of soccer simulators. It may not boast as much production value as Championship Manager, but if you are looking for a pleasant game with no frills, it ranks up there with the best. Highly recommended!
