Description

Football Manager 2010 is the sixth entry in Sports Interactive's series of football management simulations. The previous game introduced a new 3D match engine and Football Manager 2010 follows down the same path with several updates for the engine. It's been upgraded with 100 new animations, new stadia and crowds, an improved AI, and better lighting and pitch degradations.

The new match analysis tool allows the player to find strengths and weaknesses for both his own team and the opposition.. With it the player can see where on the pitch shots, passes, crosses, headers, tackles, fouls and interceptions have happened. This can be seen both during and after matches for both teams.

A new tactical module has been introduced too. It's meant to make it easier for the player to give orders for the team to follow. The new module features thousands new options and allows the player to shout out instructions directly from the touchline. The old tactics system is still in place though for those players that would prefer that.

The user interface has been redesigned with both aesthetic and navigational changes. The old side menu has been replaced with a tab system which is meant to allow the player to reach the different areas of the game more quickly.

A new data editor is also introduced. Now it's possible for the player to add new competitions of his own. Not only can he add competitions and extra levels for already existing levels but also completely new competitions and leagues. Included in the game are 115 leagues from 51 different countries.
