LMA Manager 2002 goes pan-European on PS 2 - Screens

The challenge of being a top-class football manager goes European as Codemasters confirms that LMA Manager 2002 is to be the first pan-European football management title on PlayStation 2.

Rather than featuring just the English and Scottish leagues of the UK PlayStation 1 version, LMA Manager 2002 opens up the whole of Europe giving players absolute management control over any of the English, Scottish, Italian, German, Spanish or French league football clubs.

With the game due in the spring of 2002, your management universe expands to over 17,000 authentic players in 722 clubs across 28 countries throughout Europe. Each of the 722 clubs will have their own stadium and home, away and goalkeeper strips

Designed from the ground up for the PlayStation 2 and its audience, LMA Manager 2002 will also be the console's first football management game to feature every European team, strip and player in the 2001/2002 football season. Additionally, the game will include larger 32-player squads and a vastly bigger pan-European transfer market, yet the game remains as easy to use and navigate as ever.

A key advancement for the PlayStation 2 edition, is the player's ability to view what's happening with any player or club in any of the six major European leagues, which all run concurrently. Players can get information on any individual club's performance in any of the countries enabling the player to scout for international talent or even take a job as club manager in any of those countries.

Bringing the management experience to life, LMA Manager 2002 also features the most realistic and atmospheric 3D match action seen in any management game.
Now with improved player Artificial Intelligence, dazzling PlayStation graphics and complete with scoreboard action replays of all the goals, the action sequences capture the atmosphere of every manager's match day.

Says Simon Prytherch, producer of the LMA series and head of Codemasters' HooDoo studio:
"Following on from the incredible run on PSone, LMA Manager 2002 on PlayStation 2 will again put us top of the league. We have created a game that exceeds expectations and makes football management accessible to every football fan."

Codemasters will publish LMA Manager 2002 for PS2 in the spring of 2002.
