Description

FourFourTwo is the followup to UEFA Manager 2000, Bubball's first managing game. It includes nine playable European league (English, Scottish, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Belgian and Portuguese) that can be played in both Free mode (where the player selects any team and plays with it for the duration of the game) or Career mode, where the player starts in lower divisions and build his career from the bottom. Another mode allows the player to choose one of eight challenges: get a promotion in one season, win a domestic double or generate enough money to save the club. The game also includes two special modes: Coaching a team in either English, French, Scottish, Italian or German leagues in the 1981-82 season., or selecting one of Europe's finest 20 teams ever.

While the game goes beyond the coaching roles and includes usual financial options usually seen in German managing games, the player can choose to play as either Coach or Manager. By selecting coach, the financial aspect of the game (stadium upgrades, ticket prices, merchandising and catering among others) is delegated to the computer.

The game includes a 3D engine that is used for both the 3D match view and to take part in press conferences, pre-match pep talks and post match interviews.
