TACTICAL GENIUS: Show off your wisdom in FM20

From the start, Football Manager 2020 feels a more complete universe than ever before. From the board and player interactions to media questions and staff discussions, FM20 is a world that you dive into rather than a game you play.

Every decision you make counts somewhere, from opting to send a star youngster on loan rather than give him limited first-team minutes to braking up the chemistry of your midfield with a pair of new signings. Little things matter more this year than before.

There are a few issues. As ever, you can’t manage Germany internationally, and thanks to their PES 2020 deal Juventus is called ‘Zebre’ this year. The transfer market still feels a little skewed against the player, but after Joao Felix made a £100+ million move this summer it is not surprising to see young talent get valued so highly by clubs.

However, this year’s game is everything you could realistically want or expect from Sports Interactive. It is engaging, while the new features don’t distract of alter the flow of the game.

FM20 will certainly come in for the usual “it’s the same” criticisms, but when the formula SI has is so good it doesn’t require an overhaul. There are a few tweaks this year that really help take everything up a notch and as a life-long FM player, they all work.

It’s a must-buy for new and old managers alike.
