About The Game:
This version is no different. Our first sitting - at the helm of unlikely relegation candidates Liverpool FC - ended up lasting five hours (and resulted in one very angry girlfriend). All the features you'd expect are present and correct, and the polished-looking interface introduced last season remains as simple to pilot as ever. On first impressions you could be playing last year's game - which is all well and good until you encounter some of the weaker elements of the series that SI has once again failed to update. For example, press conferences remain as dull and repetitive as previous years. They involve answering effectively the same questions from Football Manager 2009 with the same unsubtly tiered responses. In a game where everything else is so customisable, and a world where our sense of a manager's personality is defined by their dealings with the press (think Jose Mourinho or Ian Holloway), such neglect is baffling. Ditto team talks, which again involve selecting one of five rallying cries to bellow at your players (in our experience it's usually "Do it for the supporters!"). It's a tedious element of the pre-match rigmarole and it's not clear or ever quantifiable what effect they have on your team.
Another misfiring element Sports Interactive appear content to sweep under the carpet is that damn 3-D match engine - which remains as worthless as ever. Some new player animations have been added and it looks marginally better than before. But it's still uglier than Blackburn vs. Stoke on a wet Tuesday night and generally gets switched off mid-way through the second pre-season friendly. It's about time SI devoted some serious time to making Football Manager's 3-D worthwhile. Luckily there are a couple of fairly ingenious new additions to be found in Football Manager 2011 that help atone for its oversights. One favourite is the new way of negotiating contracts; as recent events at Manchester United have shown, getting big name players to sign on the dotted line can be more difficult than teaching Joe Cole how to do long division.
