    Lords of Football is a good idea and a game with a lot of potential, the actual game looks quite nice and is fun, however the game can get quite repetitive after a while and sometimes it lacks originality with the in game "addiction" feature, although if you can keep yourself enjoying the game then it can be a silly mix of "Football Manager" and "The Sims" and a lot of fun.

    Not terribly bad, but could use a lot of improvement if this game is to have any future depth. Training while interesting at first seems tedious after a while. For true fans of the sport only i would imagine.

    Geniaware's Lords of Football is a creative and unique simulation with endless potential. But all the potential in the world will not help you if your game is released half finished, and that is how this game feels: rushed and incomplete. The graphics are excellent and the gameplay itself is functional and working as intended. If they expanded on the basic principles and functions that theGeniaware's Lords of Football is a creative and unique simulation with endless potential. But all the potential in the world will not help you if your game is released half finished, and that is how this game feels: rushed and incomplete. The graphics are excellent and the gameplay itself is functional and working as intended. If they expanded on the basic principles and functions that the game flirts with, I do believe it could be a Game of the Year candidate for football enthusiasts and sim enthusiasts alike.

    The reality is that this game, in its current form, falls flat on its face and will have you constantly expecting more.

    it's an alright game. good for the first 2-3 hours but get's repetitive quickly, there isn't nearly enough to do. the lack of currency is weird because it would make perfect sense in a game like where you manage inbounds/outbounds and upgrade your stadium etc. the needs of the players get annoying after a while and the interface/emoticon icons are not easy to handle or read. it's a niceit's an alright game. good for the first 2-3 hours but get's repetitive quickly, there isn't nearly enough to do. the lack of currency is weird because it would make perfect sense in a game like where you manage inbounds/outbounds and upgrade your stadium etc. the needs of the players get annoying after a while and the interface/emoticon icons are not easy to handle or read. it's a nice fresh idea for 1 or 2 hours in between but don't expect to play this for long periods of time as it will bore you quickly. the football matches themselves are OK, you can control some stuff and the AI isn't too terrible but the graphics and especially physics seem like they are from a game made 10 years ago. overall decent game for a casual session but don't expect more.

    Lords of Football has a great idea behind it, but it's an unripe fruit. After enjoying it for some time, you will inevitably notice some gaps in the gameplay mechanics.

    The original idea to combine footballer’s life simulation dynamics with football manager’s management mechanics is surely intriguing, but not fully developed, failing to entertain for more than a season or two. It is like trying to get Balotelli and Mourinho to coexist: lots of fun for a while, bone-crushing in the long run.

    Even though Lords of Football has some interesting ideas, in a few hours the game becomes unbearably repetitive thing unable to challenge nor reward its players.
