iPhone, iTouch & iPad: Football Manager 2011 App Review

By Daniel Chubb - Dec 20, 2010

Football Manager, the marmite of the gaming world, you either love it or you hate it. When you have played the Football Manager game across multiple platforms, you start to get a realization of just how good the iPhone version is.

The PC version is the ultimate, packed full of detail with an immense database of players for you to sieve through, the PSP version is pretty good for if you are relaxing and not button bashing. The iPhone version has a different type of appeal, it’s great for on the move.

The games were made by Sega and it retails on the app store for £5.99 or $9.99 and from the iTunes website. It also has pretty good feedback in the customer reviews section.

The game has a number of features. You can have up to 3 countries active in a game so that you can change countries when managing clubs. There’s a wider variety of formations for you to use and you can add specific roles to players on the pitch.

Another brilliant addition is the in game tutorial to help any of you who are just starting out your managerial career. Whilst the PC version obviously has the largest database of available players, the iPhone/iTouch version still has a fairly big crop to choose from.

The game is currently in 2nd position in the grossing app charts on the iTunes App Store, if you want to learn more about it, then head over to appshopper.com.

All things considered, we feel that this app is worth the money, you get a lot of enjoyment and game time out of it.

    A little bit of help maybe

    Here are some stand outs for me after two seasons

    Luas (Yes that is right Luas) turns into Liverpool best player after two season worth £35mil. Give him a try (Midfield)

    Daniel Agger hits 34mil and a rock in defence (defender)

    Reina hits 26mil (goalkeeper)

    Martin Skrtel 25mil so a great defender Defence)

    Players to maybe buy/look at

    Jonjo Shelvey – Broke into my Liverpool side in the second season and is very good. worth 16mil now (Midfield)

    Steven Defour – Young and looks promising

    Christian Gentner – looks promising

    Oscar – young and looks promising

    Darren Flecter – Going into season three and one of the best midfielder on the game

    Steven Jovetic – Must buy!!!!

    Dougles costa – Worth every penny

    Hi – thanks for the review, just to clear one thing up though you can have four (4) nations leagues active at one time in the game not 3 as stated in the review.

    Hope this helps,
