FMH2011 is the latest installment in the franchise that brings football management to the PSP.
What you get, is an opportunity to manage the team (or perhaps teams) of your choice over a massive 30 seasons and engineer great comebacks, thumpings of your rivals, and of course last minute defeats, all on the way of (if you wish) creating footballing history.
The game itself is of course a management game. You buy and sell players, set training and tactics, send out scouts, and decide the fate of your team both on and off (to some extent) the pitch. It is however a PSP game rather than a PC and as such, it has limitations. You can select from more than a dozen leagues, although only four countries can be "active" at the same time. The "non-active" leagues are very light on detail and you cannot manage in those leagues. So typically you may want to include England/Spain/Italy/German or similar (even Scotland if you are Scottish!).
The player database is smaller than the PC one (obviously) and it has the 2D match engine rather than the 3D one currently used in PC versions. Having said this, this is NOT the PC version. Think CM0304 era rather than FM2011.
Still, it has the fun factor of the earlier games which to me, went missing to some degree as the PC version went on in years. IT also features nice "unlockables" (like having your "son" join your team)
All in all, this is without doubt the best football management game on the PSP.
