There is no single way to play Football Manager 24, but then again, that’s been the charm of the entire franchise. There are several reasons to keep coming back for more, though, and it’s apparent the developers took that to heart this time around.
FM is just great, made for football fans by football fans. I’ve played both Fifa and FM for years and I will pay 100 times for a Sports Interactive game over EA. This game is great and rewards smart decisions and thinking whereas the game that shall not be named is a disgrace. Enjoy FM24, it’s worth it.
A surprisingly robust culmination of a phase in the famous football series. Football Manager is gearing up for significant changes next year, but this year it has already delivered an excellent experience that addresses some of the most pressing issues. Coaching your own team on the green pitch is once again fantastic.
New season, new Football Manager: the twentieth episode of the series stands as a watershed between the glorious past and the future. Sports Interactive is preparing to revolutionize the series in the next chapter, which will bring a brand new 3D engine and many other improvements. Contrary to what Sports Interactive says, FM 2024 is not the best episode of the series but it is the worthy closure of a journey that began two decades ago: apart from the expected compatibility with the FM 23 saves, the new features proposed are nothing sensational. However, it still works very well, thanks to many adjustments here and there, small additions (intermediaries and set pieces, for example), better interaction with players and a 3D engine that seems to have reached full maturity. Also available on Game Pass, FM 2024 confirms itself as the usual majestic and encyclopedic management simulation. The sweet football obsession for millions of players.
Football Manager 2024 is inevitably an end-of-cycle game. SI's passion meant that even this year, we got a number of decent innovations, some surprising like the improvements in animation. However, the outdated engine and gameplay patterns, more and more easy to read, are still there with them. You'll play it and enjoy it, but don't necessarily expect a memorable release.
Set piece creation is a solid new addition; Meaningful improvements to transfers; Improved on-pitch animations; Core loop remains as addictive and engaging as ever.
Not a lot of major improvements; Player interactions still have plenty of room for improvement; Improvements to the match engine are marginal.
Ultimately, Football Manager 2024 neither surprises nor disappoints. If you’re familiar with what the franchise is about, going into the game, you’re going to get exactly what you expect. It’s an iterative upgrade that continues to build on the series’ incredibly strong foundation with a number of smaller improvements. And though none of those improvements might stand out individually as headline-grabbing ones, collectively, they do make a noticeable difference. Is it enough of a difference to warrant a purchase of the game if you already have Football Manager 2023? Perhaps not, especially since next year’s instalment is promising to be the biggest shake-up in the history of Sports Interactive’s long-running series. But is it a game that you can easily sink hundreds of hours and sleepless nights into, as has become traditional for the franchise? It most certainly is.
Disgrace... bad optimization, the game is easier than it should be, you can easily earn 60-70 million euros from an average player and you can easily add star players to the Turkish Super League. The profiles of some players are truly disgraceful, they just pasted last year's profile as it is. I saw missing translations in the Turkish language option. The newly added mechanics don't affect the gameplay much, I didn't need to use them.
