This exciting title allows players to assume the controls of their favorite elite football squad in Football Manager Touch 2017, the most immersive and realistic soccer management simulation game yet produced. It’s the next best thing to actually stepping into the dugout with Mourinho, Klopp or Wegner themselves.
A realistic professional soccer management
Offering over two and a half thousand actual clubs to manage and a transfer and recruitment market that exceeds half a million players and management staff, this game propels the player into an extraordinarily life-like simulation of real life professional soccer management.
As manager, the gamer assumes total control over transfer policies and team selection and rotation. Like real life, managers exercise complete tactical control, pre match and half time team-talk and in game dugout instruction. Added realism is offered via the 3D game engine which allows the coach to watch the game "live". Additional realism and (humor) comes from dealing with the scandal hungry sporting media, the fragile egos of unhappy superstar players and a board of directors all watching every move of the manager charged with guiding their first XI to glory. Early purchasers can look forward to extra content bonuses like "board override" (every managers dream), "no firing mode" and three new tournaments to participate in the game "Challenge" mode. There is also a streamlined "Touch" mode that simply focuses on transfers and tactical issues in managing and is a stand alone game in its own right which is available separately.
Data and statistics to rule them all
Football Manager Touch 2017 continues the use of Prozone, which delivers vast quantities of statistics from around the FM world via a screen based news ticker, enabling managers to pore over the specifics of any performance in precise detail. This information includes distances covered on the pitch by particular players, placement location of each shot, accuracy of set-piece deliveries and consequences of of each error before picking the team for the next game. This will be music to the ears of the fans of the Football Manager franchise, as the distinctive managerial focus of the title is retained and amplified for the 2017 iteration. However it will make the game less appealing to fans of FIFA and Pro Evolution soccer who prefer actual in game simulation where the gamer simulates the player, not the coach. But, like real life football management, you can't please everybody!
