Product Description

More than 1,000 improvements and enhancements make Sports Interactive and SEGA’s tenth Football Manager the most compelling and realistic to date!

Football Manager 2014 is the most feature-packed and technically advanced release in the series’ history. Benefitting from more than 1,000 improvements and enhancements over its most recent predecessor, FM 2014 is the most realistic simulation of football management ever released.

In addition to enhanced gameplay, FM 2014 also delivers a range of technical innovations, with the game available on Linux for the first time and the introduction of ‘cloud save’ technology, which means that managers can now pursue a single career from any computer, anywhere in the world.

The FM experience is also more customisable than ever before, as the integration of Steam Workshop tools make it easy for managers to create and share customised FM content and experiences such as photo/logo packs, new and custom competitions and even tailor-made in-game challenges using the new Challenge Editor which has been incorporated into the free-to-download Pre-game Editor.

Football Manager 2014 highlights include:

  • An improved 3D Match Engine
  • A tactical overhaul
  • More realistic transfers and contracts
  • More sophisticated board interaction
  • More complex interaction between staff, players and rival managers
  • A revamped news system
  • An enhanced user interface
  • Evolution for Classic mode
  • Additional community features
  • Extensive tech improvements

PLEASE NOTE: Football Manager 2014 is EU region locked. If you live outside of the EU, you will not be able to install and play this game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too hard, zero fun, play FM 2012 instead 20 Jun 2014
Platform for Display:PC
I don't know why they do it but every now and then SI games release a version of Football Manager and they seem to crank up the difficulty to ridiculous extremes. Whether this is to appease the die-hard fans or they're simply reckless with their coding I'm not sure, but what I do know is that this year's edition is a frustrating mess of a game. Don't get me wrong, many aspects are excellent, including a staggeringly accurate player database, nice interface, and even a sensible new system for setting out tactical instructions. None of that matters, however, as the game is way. too. hard.

The problem lies SOLELY in the poor match engine and, specifically, the over-exaggerated dips in form that cripple your team almost every single season. It doesn't matter who you are, Real Madrid, PSG, or Wigan - you will run into a brick wall and start losing game after game for no apparent reason. The fanboys will say "it's your tactics", but if my tactics are so bad how come I won 8 games in a row before suddenly losing 4 or 5 in a row? It doesn't make any sense, it's like that game knows you're doing too well and flicks the bad form switch to try and keep things challenging.

As a fan of this series for many years it pains me to say this, but I think SI games are losing their way with this series, and it doesn't help motivate them when there is absolutely no genuine competition to rival them in the football sim genre. If you want my advice, go back to FM 2012 and download the most recent data update you can find.

3.0 out of 5 stars Football Manager 2014 Review 29 Dec 2013
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I must admit I have had this game for a good 3 weeks now, and so far it is more than fair to say I haven't really gotten into it, it's not that I haven't tried though, I have started multiple saves with teams like Lazio, Inter, Man City, Wolves, but no fun. I am seriously next thinking of delving into a league like the conference, because supposedly it will be free from all the unscheduled chaos that goes on in the more established leagues, so let me go into detail and compare to the last few versions:

CONTRACTS:
Not bad same as usual really, It has been a clever transition in the last few games to make it so that instead of submitting an offer to a player and waiting whether he will join you or some other team, you now get to negotiate like you would in real life, wages, loyalty bonuses, agent fees, team of the year fees, promotion wage rise, relegation wage decrease, release clause etc. I could go on for days but the new features to this has been a talked about addition called the 'non playing fee' or the 'sub fee' which means you have to pay your player MONEY! for him not to play (crazy!) I don't like this feature, and even I have doubts to whether it even exists in real life. How outrageous, but apart from this minor drawback I would say the contract feature is pretty solid and apart from agents sometimes being unrealistic with their demands (which is just life i'm afraid) you get a pretty solid feature here.

MATCH ENGINE:
Match Engine...I don't play on the polished 3D mode just so you all know, I have always played on the 2D mode, I think it looks nice and tbh this game has always been a lot more about simulation and gameplay than graphics for me so I won't judge it too much by its graphics as personally I don't think it matters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Depends what you're looking for.... 24 Jun 2014
Platform for Display:PC
I fell in love with this series a long time ago and have dedicated ridiculous amounts of hours in the meantime. However 2013 and 2014 editions of the game have been a giant step backwards in both enjoyment and fluidity of play, now in terms of realism it may well have improved to the point that if you want to be even semi-successful within the game you have to analyse games and tweak tactics endlessly until you have a tactic that 'works' which then the AI becomes aware of and begins to deal with it....so the process begins again. Ive even had periods of success within the game but it is no longer enjoyable, its like you're fighting a losing battle for the entire time you're playing it. Now Im sure there are some people who would want FM to be like a real job and in that case "fill your boots" but for the average person it is used as an escape from the real world and from our jobs and studies. There are certainly an increasing amount of bugs too but as I say I have really lost interest....even though I picked it up for 6 from Steam on a discount! If this is the new direction SI are going in (which judging by two editions in a row suffering from the same problems it probably is) then I am bitterly dissappointed. I cant tell you enough how frustrating the game is, surely nobody wants that in a game!

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I have spent (or 'wasted') a great deal of my life playing Football Manager or Championship Manager since the mid-90s, but that long run may have now come to an end. Football Manager 2014 is the worst in the history of the franchise and has gone massively backwards since the 2012 version.

As has become traditional, the first few weeks of owning this game are spent waiting for patches to rectify the many obvious bugs that somehow aren't worked out in advance. Does anybody actually test the game before they charge money for it?

The 'improved' match engine is dreadful. Players wander aimlessly in nonsensical directions (your centre forward heading back into midfield as your winger prepares to put in a cross, defenders wandering away from a forward who has the ball); players stand still in acres of space and wait for a defender to come and tackle them; goalkeepers at all levels are absolutely superhuman, unless they are running out of their goal like it was on fire to gift the opposition an open goal; forwards are completely useless, constantly shooting wide from the edge of the area whatever attributes they have or instructions you give them; world class set-piece specialists send the ball drifting over the bar from well positioned free kicks every time; defenders act as though they had been given a briefcase of cash by an illegal betting syndicate. I could go on and on...but the worst thing is that it doesn't look anything like real football, there is none of the dynamism, pace, physicality or intensity that characterises modern football. I appreciate that FM is really a strategy game, but is it too much to ask that the players could move or behave in a way that vaguely represented human beings? Subbuteo footballers are more realistically animated.
