Premier Manager 2012 for PSN, poor man’s Football Manager

By Updated on

One of the most addictive games ever made is now available on the PlayStation Network. That game is Premier Manager 2012. It’s the latest installment of a series that has spanned more than a decade. Both Urbanscan and Sony will be hoping for a lot of immediate success with it as they have given a special launch price of just £9.99 or €12.99.

The football management simulation was made available on the PSN at 5pm today and would normally cost £13.99 or €17.99 but for this special introductory price. The game will appeal to those that are interested in pick-up-and-play games and allow football fans the ultimate job of being a football manager for any of the top clubs in the world, all from the comfort of their own couch.

Much like its closest and arguably more successful rival, Football Manager 2012, features a huge player and team database including teams from top footballing nations and includes both cup and league competitions. It also features real-time graphics for contract negotiations, a brand new memory system which allows staff and players to recollect controversial decisions you may have made, a unique leveling up system for characters and an accurate tactical match engine. A trailer of the game can be viewed at CVG.

What’s also very appealing about this football management simulation is it will cost a fraction of what its closest rival does. However, Football Manager 2012 offers a lot more for the money in terms of content, realism and authenticity. It has a far more complex engine and lets players choose from any team from over 50 different nations. It has an easy to use intelligent interface and a brand new tutorial. Premier Manager 2012 will no doubt be entertaining and a great alternative but will only ever be a poor man’s Football Manager in our eyes.
