'Football Manager 2006' (PSP/X360/PC) - Beta Demo No Longer Available

by Rainier on Sept. 12, 2005 @ 7:30 p.m. PDT

Football Manager 2006 is a comprehensive soccer management simulation offering a host of new features, including the ability for managers to negotiate with their board of directors - not only for a better contract for themselves, but also for improved player wage budgets and increased transfer budgets or even stadium expansion. Be aware though, if you push too hard and don't reach the heights that the board specifies, you'll soon be looking for a new job.
Removed at the request of SEGA Europe

General Issues and comments (September 12th 2005)

  • English quick start (to conference level) only
  • Player data not fully up-to-date. Feel free to report issues in our designated forum (however do not log player transfers as they are generally known …eg Crouch is set to the wrong Liverpool currently)
  • English language only
  • Match sounds, logos or player photographs are not included
  • Occasional inaccurate assistant manager team reports
  • Managers reputation can increase too quickly
  • Spanish teams seem to have too much money and are quite aggressive in the transfer market
  • Virtual players for International and some European teams are occasionally too good which has caused (within in house SI testing) Bahrain to win the World cup or Glentoran getting in the Champions League quarter finals

Match Engine comments (September 12th 2005)

  • Some suspect defending in certain situations
  • Goals not being shown sometimes when you click them in overview or in goal of the month
  • Too many injuries
  • Some occasional tactics screen corruption which can cause players to disappear under other players
  • After using quick tactics the match view stays in split view rather than what you were previously using.
  • There are other issues that we are aware of but these are some of the main ones
