Football Manager Handheld 2012 for iPad and iPhone review
Football Manager fans should have mixed feelings that their obsession has landed on iOS. Delight because this mobile version is perfectly ported for gaming on the move, but fearful because it offers a whole new way to allow the beautiful game to take over their lives.
7 years after the Championship Manager team left to make Football Manager and set out to ruin social lives all over again, this handheld version arrives offering a streamlined management experience. Some will welcome the simpler interface as the PC/Mac version has become overly complex in recent seasons. In this version, seasons fly by in a night and Aldershot can be Premiership champions in a week.
That's not to say it isn't deep, serious and completely addictive. While only football stats fans need apply, that special breed will be enthralled. Don't forget to eat.
