The LMA Manager series is the most successful football management series for video game consoles. Leagues ahead of any PC conversion, LMA Manager is the only game of its type created specifically for use on consoles. LMA Manager 2003 will introduce a fresh design, intuitive control and dynamic presentation of information and statistics to the football management genre on Xbox.
LMA Manager 2003 will be the only Xbox football management game that enables players to watch the on-pitch action and make tactical changes and substitutions at any time. Xbox owners can shout instructions from the dug out via a quick button press and can make decisions on their team and players based on exactly what they see. Real football managers don’t sit in the dugout looking at a spreadsheet to assess how their players are performing…
The game will feature 720 European football clubs from 28 countries, complete with authentic strips, player details and stadia for the 2002/2003 football season. In the UK it continues the long-running endorsement from the League Managers Association. Codemasters also promises dedicated editions for each of the major European territories, supported with specific packaging, territory-specific headline licenses and marketing materials.
LMA Manager 2003 makes 4-4-2 as easy as 1-2-3, but with numerous managerial responsibilities it also offers unrivalled depth of gameplay. LMA Manager 2003 on Xbox features 16 English, Scottish, French, German, Italian and Spanish divisions all running matches simultaneously. This enables you to monitor every team’s performance in every league, with detailed results available throughout the season. And if you fancy swapping clubs, simply move to another job on offer from any of the European clubs and experience the atmosphere of different international crowds at stadia around the continent.
The new transfer system featuring over 17000 players has the most powerful player search system. To track down an individual based on his skills, value, position or even his name in takes just a couple of seconds. If extra information is needed, send a scout to observe and he will file a series of reports which you can keep until you need them.
LMA Manager 2003 boasts the most realistic and atmospheric 3D match action seen in any management game with incredible player intelligence, dazzling graphics and action replays. A detailed TV-style highlights section allows players to review the important match action with in-depth analysis and comments from the classic team of Gary Lineker and Alan Hansen. And, the Xbox hard drive allows quick access to all game data plus enhanced storage space for saved games.
LMA Manager is a seasoned professional on PlayStation and a recent number one smash hit on PlayStation 2. Codemasters is confident of continuing the series’ incredible success by making LMA Manager 2003 the number one football management game on Xbox when it launches this October.
