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

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.Read more ›
SI Games confirms and enhances the extraordinary work done last year, making Football Manager 2014 the almost-perfect game for wannabe football managers. The biggest feature for me has to be host of new ‘real world’ transfer clauses have been added, such as the facility to loan a player back to the club he has just been bought from and the option to offer a combination of money and loan players, as well as new contract clauses such as a sub bench appearance fee.
If you want to see your tactics play out, the match engine does a great job of showing the consequences of what would otherwise be abstract decisions. People are always quick to criticise the 3D version of that engine – and it's true its animation doesn't compare to something like FIFA, but there's a flow and rhythm to FM matches that's more realistic than any other football game.
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.Read more ›
The game hasnt changed in 5 years and the makers are only interested in the money,the interface just gets moved around every year and then they charge you £30 for the pleasure,oh and of course the player database is updated but you can download that from a website online for FREE.
Your tactics have no impact on the outcome of the game as i done a test and proved it,The match engine would not be out of place in the 1990s.
Ive called for the last 4 years that the grounds to be updated and made to look like the real thing but the makers ignore those suggestions and focus on profit.
All the people i know who have played this for years no longer even buy the game,It needs a massive injection of money to update the match engine and also make the game FUN again.
Watch out for the usual 5 star one sentence reviews just before xmas but dont be fooled by them.The game is awful and has been neglected by its makers for at least 4 years now.
The bugs are a joke and the players run around like robots on medication.
The only reason this game has lasted so long is because of the lack of competition,you will get the usual fanboys raving about the game and come out saying how great the game is.But fail to say that its virtually the same as last years version and the year before that and before that.
I will not be buying the game in the future.
