Immersive football management game
Football Manager 2022 is a premium sports title developed by Sports Interactive. It is a football game that focuses on team management rather than active gameplay. It lets players experience being in charge of their own team and making decisions that affect their success.
Compared to other popular football releases like FIFA 19 or FIFA 21, Football Manager 2022 provides players with a more behind-the-scenes experience. A demo version is also available for them to try and get an idea of the gameplay and what the game is all about before deciding if they want to purchase it.
Your very own team
Some of the most popular football games today focus on the action and let you experience the thrill of playing on the field. This is exactly the reason why they are so popular with gamers. However, there are some that also like to experience the "nitty gritty" side of things that don't always get shown, and this is where Football Manager 2022 comes into play.
It is essentially a management sim that will let you build and manage your very own team from among 500,000 players. Create your perfect rosters and see how you'll fare across a total of 123 football leagues that you can enter and compete in. Take player skill and attributes into account as you formulate strategies and tactics in preparations for the matches ahead.
Owning a team is like running a business, and so you will need to focus on other areas like managing finances, hiring skilled staff, and even working with agents and sponsors on crucial deals. If you're a long-time fan of the franchise and are coming from Football Manager 2021, you'll notice that there is very little difference and change in this latest iteration, which might put you off a bit.
Much of the same
All in all, Football Manager 2022 is the franchise's best release yet even if it has not changed much from its predecessor. If you're a returning fan, it will be an underwhelming but refined experience that is still a joy to play. If you're new to the series, this is a great introduction and entry point with all the bells and whistles. Recommended.
