Advantages There are some good ideas in this game it just isn't excecuted very well
Disadvantages It just doesn't hit the mark
Alex Ferguson puts his name on a below standard football playing/management game for the PlayStation 2 with plenty of potential.
This is a game which was originally produced for the PC as Player Manager. The developers have then transferred it to the PlayStation2 with disastrous results.
You start with the option to manage either a Scottish Premiership or English Premiership side. As with most management games this game is set out in a database format. Your players and staff are given stats for their attributes. You have the option to visit the transfer market (to buy players and staff), train your players or play the games. The transfer market is quiet extensive and give you the option to enter negotiations with pretty much any player around in 2001. The option to buy David Beckham in his prime could prove irresistible. David Beckham a Middlesbrough would probably never happen but in this game anything is possible however unrealistic??
The other game play option is to be a player but here this game is not a patch on its competitors either. I would recommend FIFA or PES every time.THE GRAPHICS
The developers of this game shouldn't have bothered with music as what they have produced is bad enough to make your ears bleed (maybe that is a bit harsh but the sounds produced in my opinion are not great). On the other hand this is a management game and therefore it doesn't really require music.
It looks like a PC Conversion game which has plenty of potential but this version just doesn't deliver. Slightly Disappointing.3/10
If you are looking for a football management game then I would look no further than the Football Manager series before even bothering with this game. If you like games where you can play football check out the FIFA or (Pro Evolution Soccer) PES series. (recommendations as of May 2010 opinions may change with time).
