The Double

Honestly the genre of football management games is enough to make any human being break into a cold sweat (Remember Football Director!)

For those of you who may have just been born, the general idea is that you play the manager of a football club, which in this case happens to be in the 3rd division and using the skill of decisions and a little bit of luck by selecting options you have to get them through to be the league champions and/or FA cup winners. The game is menu-driven with all the usual features and at the end of each week lists all the scores and shows the league tables. Not surprisingly, Liverpool are nearly always at the top, though I was sure Rush had gone to Juventus.

It turns out the game is amazingly simple to use and gives you a wealth of information making it terrific fun to play. A goodie - but pricey.

Overall Summary

An involving Football-managerette - overpriced.
