Dec 24, 2020Criticisms aside, Football Manager Touch 2021 is impossible to put down. The bugs and crashes don't matter. The presentation doesn't matter. It also doesn't matter that this game is so dangerously close to crossing the line to become actual work that I wouldn't be surprised if the developers actually collect people's play data to pass on to the real-world managers to give them ideas for their actual decision-making. Football Manager is emergent narrative brilliance, and Touch 21 doesn't let us down there by any means.
Dec 23, 2020The search for an intuitive control system on the Switch continues, as Football Manager 2021 remains clunky and fiddly to play. Stick with its admittedly awkward controls, however, and you'll end up with the best handheld football management game ever, thanks to its enhanced matchday options and its improved stats. It's the Robert Pires of football games: it eventually becomes sensational, you just have to give it a season or so before it properly settles.
Apr 12, 2021Simply put, if you have limited time and only want to dip your toes in, rather than fully submerging yourself, playing Football Manager 2021 Touch on Nintendo Switch in handheld mode is the best way to experience the game. Aside from the revamped matchday experience, there is not a great deal to differentiate this from Football Manager 2020 Touch.
Jan 7, 2021If there was more competition in the field, Football Manager Touch on the Nintendo Switch could well have been in trouble. As it stands, Sports Interactive has the monopoly and, unfortunately for us Switch Players, it shows.

Oct 8, 2021Football Manager 2021 reached a so global and complete level last year, before this year's new game (2022) to take its place, and the TouchFootball Manager 2021 reached a so global and complete level last year, before this year's new game (2022) to take its place, and the Touch option even makes it easier for football game addicts who hadn't that much time available.
I started a career unemployed, but luckily got hired right away in the 2nd national domestic league, right at my favorite team (so I unlocked the Boyhood dream achievement right from the start).
After promoting them in the 1st league from the first season managed (accomplish which made me ranked 18th in the domestic second league, ever), I got hired shortly by CFR Cluj, the in-real-life champions, but they weren't that patient with me (or I didn't have that much experience) so I got sacked. After 2 spells at lower, struggling clubs in the 1st domestic league, clubs which I got them relegated, by the way (couldn't help them more), I got the national badge also, being hired to coach Jamaica in their World Cup Glory pursue.
But that wasn't easy, either. Being a small island nation, it was hard to find a professional goalkeeper up until late in the game, but anyway, I got them decent in Gold Cup (North and Central American Nations Major Tournament) and the World Cup which I got them qualified also. The 2026 WC held in North America, put us in a hellish group, being defeated by Venezuela, a decent but not stellar nation in South America, and outplayed at all levels by Portugal, with all their stars playing. However, my only consolation was that Jamaica lost with fewer goals conceded than Venezuela, which got trampled in the previous match by the `lusitans` in a 7-0 defeat.
I retired form the game in the summer of 2026, being in my 3rd season and having good promises for promotion with a local team, Turris Turnu Măgurele.
I stated many of my achievements in this review, but that is what Football Manager is all about: creating your football dream pursue and glory. FM 2021 makes no difference, and the Touch option of the game adds a bit more spice to the original FM game, being able to create a draft or fantasy league, create a club (option available in the main FM2021 game also) or challenges - which I haven't tried but I bet they are addictive also, once you get your head into one.
In a month time, the new FM2022 should come out, so we, football manager addicts, can just wait and see.
And play some old FM2021 until then, of course.
To victory!… Expand
Dec 9, 2022Flawed. On the surface of it, the game resembles the old-school football manager games with less emphasis on team talks and press conferencesFlawed. On the surface of it, the game resembles the old-school football manager games with less emphasis on team talks and press conferences of the main series. However, after pumping in 90+ hours into FM 21 Touch Switch edition, it quickly becomes clear all your experience with learning the mechanics of the main games do not translate well to a touch/mobile edition. The problem with striping back mechanics is that those full-fat PC versions rely on them to balance the game. Getting promoted is an example of the shortcomings of the Switch/Touch editions and will highlight it perfectly with what I mean. Normally you could rely on squad-chemistry and scouting the vast available free talent to help you survive relegation. This is a mechanic that hasn't been utilised well here, or at all, which creates a restriction that only financial fair play would be jealous off. Which is apt, as that too isn't part of Switch/Touch versions. Over my 90+ hours I found myself really struggling in the lower leagues, 4-2-3-1 is the only formation available to you that doesn't create significant issues, you will be left to the scout department to find you any players as there is no 'Ctrl-A' button to mass select a potential list of recruits, and players don't develop even in the first team as staff/training options have been fully dumbed down. There is no quick way to select your subs/'unused players' to play in the next reserve game, so players are always lacking sharpness, and this all points to the Switch editions main issue... clunkyness. I have tried a mouse attached through USB-Switch port, but it can not deter from the poor interface which makes even finding different leagues a challenge; let alone finding yourself in perpetual holiday under the instruction only to return once offered a job to get out off the flawed lower division system, only to find there is no 'return from holiday' button after realising a Premier League team wants nothing to do with a manager sacked 6 times in the Welsh counties league. Little do those interviewers know I am a 20 year CM/FM veteran that knows all the tricks of the trade... except how to return off holiday.
In the end I just turned it off… Expand
