I love Football Manager – and although the game isn’t fully released yet, I’ve already put over a dozen hours into the beta. Whereas previous versions could probably be considered more a database update, FM17 definitely adds a good amount into the game. Sure, it’s not completely there yet, but I’d imagine it’s very difficult to see where is best to improve, when so much of it is near perfect. The addition of data analysts is a masterstroke and provides managers with key data that really helps on a day-to-day basis, but there are so many other facets to enjoy too. If you’ve held off on buying the past few years, this is the game to break that cycle and buy it. Highly recommend.
