    We Are Football is an intriguing attempt to offer another take on the football management genre. The game has a very good match presentation and some solid club-focused mechanics but I am not sure that this is enough to make it a contender. The developers really need to get at least one major league full license (the Bundesliga is probably the most accessible) to draw fans in. An editor that is both faster and easier to use just to engage with names would also help. The football management space needs more options and more innovation. The developers clearly try to focus on the match and the squad interactions while also offering more club-based features for those who want it. I liked the time I spent with We Are Football but it’s unlikely that I will use it to play a ten-year-long Liverpool campaign anytime soon.

    We Are Football is an accessible management sim for all skill levels, and whilst it might not be the best out there, it's still a lot of fun.

    We Are Football succeeds in carrying over the strengths of the old soccer management games into 2021, but it fails to develop them further.

    We Are Football is an immediate managerial experience that has no ambition (and how it could?) to take the throne of the genre, but it may interest football lovers who are looking for a simplified yet smart gameplay.

    While they might share the same genre, We Are Football isn’t trying to be the new Football Manager. Winning Streak’s game offers a lighter formula, with some quirks here and there like sabotaging the field lights, but the logic that dictates the outcome of matches feels to unstable, and the lack of official licenses might not be welcome by some.

    If Football Manager scares you with all its details you may try We Are Football, a beginner-friendly football management game made by industry veterans.

    We Are Football is an attempt to reproduce the success of old classics like the old EA Football Manager. The Emphasis here is on “attempt”, because the game fails miserably. Missing licenses, a broken transfer market and a lack of explanations are just some of the things that went wrong. Only a few things make the game playable at all: It is very beginner-friendly and has 40 Leagues from 22 Countries. Moreover, missing Clubs can be added via a very detailed Editor. We Are Football can produce some fun, but only if you lower your standards.

    Overall Score: 7.5

    It's a very good football manager game. And I like the effort on this game. It has good presentation, and I like the game's mechanics. However the game could have more options, a editor that is very easy and quick and have a license. It has a few flaws. While it may not be the best, but overall, it's a good, polished football manager sim that I would love to recommend to sports fans.
