    Football Manager 2022 is yet another improvement on the long-running series, one that brings the beautiful game to life more than ever before and recreates both the small and large moments that make the sport so engaging. The options are near limitless, and the game puts even more at your fingertips, from the Data Hub to improved staff meetings, all adding onto a revamped match engine. This is the closest Sports Interactive has come to perfection, with only small elements feeling aged and needing polishing.

    It's a must-play, the perfect next step for existing FM fanatics, and the ideal place to start if you've never dipped your toe in the deep end of management simulations. You'll be able to get started easily and stop playing after just one more game. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to lose 6-1 to Liverpool in a failed attempt to implement a Gegenpress at Reading FC.

    No single release from an annualized franchise revolutionizes the gameplay experience, but Football Manager 2022 delivers visual and mechanical improvements in multiple areas, making it the best series entry yet.

    Football Manager 2022 manages to successfully represent the complexity of soccer, but at the same time, it offers an accessible experience that anyone can enjoy. Hardcore fans will be thankful for all the additions, and newcomers will feel welcomed.

    The feeling is that Sports Interactive wanted to perfect everything that was already working, trying to put a nice patch on what was wrong and postponing the innovations / revolutions to the post pandemic. It remains, however, the best football managerial simulation on the planet.

    Don’t go into Football Manager 2022 hoping for great presentation or spectacular graphics, for you’re not gonna get it. No, this is more like „Looking at Excel Sheets: The Game“, but for what it is worth, it excels at that (pun very much intended). It’s complex, it’s slow, but if you find your way into it, it is also extremely satisfying once you get the hang of it.

    Football Manager 2022 is a further step for the improvement of the series, which in terms of offer and managerial experience now seems saturated. The innovations compared to the previous edition are small and marginal, both in terms of content and improvements to the match engine.

    Un año más el juego referencia de manager de fútbol.

    Es continuista para lo bueno y lo malo. Como siempre va mejorando detalles en distintos aspectos, este año en concreto mejoran bastante las animaciones durante los partidos. Y meten alguna función nueva como el centro de datos, que ha sido elogiado pero personalmente lo suelo ignorar.

    Quitando las novedades es lo mismo de siempre y eso es genial. Además este año ha salido en gamepass...

    Sin lugar a dudas si eres nuevo realmente es un 10 de juego y tienes mil cosas por descrubrir y probar, si llevas muchos aquí pues a disfrutar y esperar alguna novedad rompedora otra vez.

    1000000000 times better than fifa
    although there are a lot of random stuff which is really annoying and complicating, this is still a very enjoyable game, and it actually feels like your managing a football club, although for inexperienced players i recommend the mobile version as it is simpler and easier to play
