Product Description

Platform: PC/Mac Download

Play it whenever, wherever, however
Inclusion of ‘cloud-save’ technology which means that managers can now pursue a single career from any computer, anywhere in the world. FM14 also includes integration with Steam Workshop making it easy for managers to create and share customised FM content such as photo/logo packs, new and custom competitions and tailor-made challenges using the new Challenge Editor.

Improved Match Engine
The 3D Match Engine has seen extensive improvements, including enhanced AI, improved lighting and player animation, individual player character and kit models, more realistic player reaction to on-field incidents and a range of optimisations which combine to make this the best looking and fastest FM Match Engine yet.

Tactical overhaul

There has been a complete redesign of how tactics are created, selected and implemented with player roles and team strategies becoming even more prominent, definable roles for players for multiple positions, new player roles and instructions and improvements to rival managers' AI so that they’ll adapt their tactics more readily over time.

More realistic transfers and contracts
FM 2014 features a revamped transfer module where opposing clubs and managers adopt a more realistic approach when making or responding to transfer offers. In addition, a number of new ‘real world’ transfer clauses have been added, such as the facility to loan a player back to the club he’s just been bought from and the option to offer a combination of cash and loan players, as well as new contract clauses such as a sub bench appearance fee. On top of this, the old ‘turn-based’ system of transfer negotiations can now be done two ways, the tried and tested system and a new ‘live’ system, similar to that used in FM’s contract negotiations.

More sophisticated board interaction

Contract negotiations are more realistic in FM 2014, as managers and boards can now make demands and lay down their respective visions for the club in both initial job interviews and contract renewal discussions. Managers can also attempt to renegotiate transfer and wage budgets as a reward for staying loyal if they’ve been offered a job by another club, with the outcome helping aid their decision on whether to move or not.

Improved interaction with players, staff and media

There is now better interaction between players, managers, their rivals and the media; for example, members of the coaching staff now offer feedback on how reserve and youth team players are performing. Managers can also ask key players to have a word with unhappy squad members, while the introduction of an end-of-season meeting allows the manager to let the squad know how they have performed and set targets for the coming season.

News system
The news system has been overhauled so managers can now deal with many club matters directly from their inbox. In addition, news is now colour-coded, based on category, and contains more detail – for example, scout reports now appear as a single news item with a top-line report on all players scouted and the facility to shortlist or make an offer for each of these players.

Enhanced user interface
Major changes have been made to FM 2014’s user interface. Key areas have been redesigned – including the training overview page, the transfer centre and the news homepage – while widespread changes have been made across the game’s user interface. The language employed throughout the game has also enjoyed a major overhaul and now corresponds more closely to the language of real world football.

Football Manager Classic evolved

Managers can now choose more than three playable nations in Classic mode for a more immersive experience. In addition, FM’s ‘fast play’ mode now includes Transfer Deadline Day, a Match Plan wizard and new unlockables.

2.0 out of 5 stars Its FM13 with a new logo. November 2, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download
Im a HUGE fan of this series, Ive been playing it since 99. I have seen how the game has changed throughout the years. There have been editions were the game stayed practically the same; this is one of them. The greatest problem FM has right now, is the lack of real competition. The franchise needs that to progress and become a better game.

PROS
- Better training and tactic tool than its predecessor.
- Better pitch graphics.
- The inclusion of an in-game editor, which can be bought via steam for 5$.
- Better player-manager interaction.

CONS
- Weird gameplay on the pitch, same goals repeated over and over again. Glitches on the way players pass the ball. Most of the shooting ends up being interrupted by a player in between yours and the goal.
- Not many changes from FM13, its basically the same game, just a little fancier. It gets boring after a while to play the same game.
- Few things the fans craved for have been fixed.

Its not a bad game, but I feel it has stuck (like the Fifa franchise). Very few improvements have been added, and for the price, I think you should stick with FM13 and google a save game where they update the transfer movements.

SI you are an amazing company and I'm going to keep buying the games, but as a long time buyer I feel I can ask for a little more work on updates and improvements for the next FM.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best one, once again! May 31, 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Football Manager series has been the best soccer and management game since they started several years ago!

I don't know how they do it, but they keep improving things without losing the best aspects of the game

It is without a doubt the best one ever made!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game August 16, 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download
It seems to me to be an excellent version. I've been playing ChampMan/Football Manager since the old Amiga days '92 or '93 maybe. This seems like a definite improvement. The only complaints are with minor issues. It'd be nice if it was easier to navigate to other clubs in other leagues like it was in FM 2011.

4.0 out of 5 stars more of the same.. but that's a good thing December 10, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download|Verified Purchase
It seems like it's impossible for them to not release one of these without it being full of bugs. I've come to accept it.. I guess I'm a sucker.

Like other reviews say, there's nothing groundbreaking about FM2014 compared to recent releases. But, since I'm a sucker, updated rosters are enough for me to be happy. I think the match engine has also improved and runs a lot better/smoother on my laptop.

It's hard not to love this game.
