A management game. (I thought there was something missing from Barg Basement!) Not only that, but a 2-player management game. Intrigued, I collared a friend, and we settled down to play... (Much later.) Phew! Right - the 2-player option is a cunning idea, adding a much-needed element of competition to what is essentially a lonely genre. Much enjoyment can be derived from watching your opponent head towards the bottom of the league (as long as you don't follow suit) and when your 2 teams meet, it can get quite, er, loud. However, it does mean that while one player is managing his team, the other has to turn away (since scouting an opponent's strengths is a vital feature). The actual mechanics of the game (which, as a pleasant change, simulates a fictional 'superleague' rather than an actual competition) lean heavily towards lists of numbers and 'Please Wait' messages - it's Basic time again, folks! As usual the 'Feature Included' blurb runs to 30+ items ("38 game season... 400 footballers... disciplinary points... own goals... and much more") and if that '2 Human Players' sign wasn't there I'd say this was competent but uninspired. However, with that extra player it gains a bit of bite, so I'll say, it's a very enjoyable management game! (Which is in event in itself.)
