4.0 out of 5 stars Now the addiction follows you everywhere, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Football Manager 14 (PlayStation Vita) (Video Game)
I've had this game for little over a week now, and I have already sunk way more hours into it than I'd care to admit. Essentially, everything that makes the PC game's Classic mode is here. The only problem is, now you don't just lose time in front of your laptop playing this; now you can play everywhere. The bus/train. In bed. In the toilet. In fact now there is no escaping its clutches, while before leaving the house was at least a way to stop playing a little while.

The criticisms leveled at this game in other user reviews are justified - the interface is difficult to navigate sometimes. Buttons are too small and require precise placement of your fingers. The amount of times I have selected the wrong option due to this is too often. Moving players around is also rather awkward for a mobile platform - you have to hold down the left bumper while dragging a finger from your right hand across the screen. This creates a bit of a dexterity challenge, and shouldn't be the case for using a UI on the go.

However, despite these UI negatives, the game is still incredible, and if you are a fan of the Classic desktop game mode, you are going to lose your life having it with you wherever you go. It's also a game well-suited to portability. You can easily knock out 2 or 3 games within a short space of time, and is also good for those times when you're daydreaming about the game. At work and suddenly thinking about that player you just bought? Just make a quick toilet break and you can take a look at his profile, planning his place in your next game.

All in all, a good game to have on your Vita. Hopefully they release another one next year (depends on how this one sells, I guess), because with a more suitable interface, this game will be perfect.
