Product Description

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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars I want to like this... 29 Dec 2013
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Maybe I'm being impatient. Perhaps, in my current, somewhat ill state, I am not in the right mind to judge. However, for all the good points of FM2014 (and there are good points), this game has one or two issues.

Firstly, the way in which you can interact with opposing managers- I was disappointed to find you can no longer, on a whim, make a remark about the opposition- this was quite fun in my humble opinion, and is sorely missed. Now, you can only talk about the opposing manager via press conferences- if the media ask the question.

Second- dodgy AI, via the 3D match engine. On FM2012 (the most recent version I owned until recently), players are not so error-prone as they are now. Passes from players with a reputation for accuracy go awry more easily, including baffling decisions (like my left-back choosing by far the more difficult pass out of two choices, and gifting the opposition a goal, or playing the ball across the face of your own area when there's absolutely no reason to).

This little niggles (and the way a team can go from great form to poor form for no apparent reason- no injuries or suspensions to speak of yet it still happens) are frustrating. Points are lost and prizes slip away because of these things, which suggests to me some serious tweaking is needed under the hood.

For all that, the game is still playable. It's not a bad experience. I dare say though, FM2012 is better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Upgrades are actually downgrades 4 Feb 2014
So i dont buy every football manager game. I can play one for 2 or 3 years before i buy an update. So know that the last one i played is 2012. However also know that i'm not terrible at the game. I'm average to good, and always do pretty well after trying different things out.

This one however anyone would think i am absolutely terrible at it. We'll come onto that soon and why that is.

The first things to note are my perceptions of whats new. The 2 main things that are new to me are interviews (nothing special, its obvious what to say and you seem to not get picked on what you say much anyway, more on experience level compared to club you want to manage), and the new tactics system (which is very different).

So at first glance the new tactics system looks impressive. It's much more clear and gives you so much more indication of what everything does to change your game. You want your players to pass shorter, then its one click and they do it. I was concerned that however, its been simplified too much and that it would be too difficult now to actually find the balance of what you want your players to do and it turns out i was right.

When i set up a game a lot of the time i have learnt the best ways to make my team play via team instructions and its 80% the same no matter what team you are playing or formation. In addition there just arent enough options. Like... "pass shorter" seems to completely dissuade any long balls over the top into space even when its the clear move to make, so why anyone would do this i dont know. What i mean by pass shorter is in general to do that but if the clear thing to do is to boot it up into space behind the defence for my striker who can make a good run then dont pass it backwards to my defender.

3.0 out of 5 stars Football Manager 2014 Review 29 Dec 2013
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.
