Description

UEFA Manager 2000 is a football (European) management simulator that attempts to combine high quality graphics and presentation with the AI and options of games such as Championship Manager or Ultimate Soccer Manager.

The player acts not only as manager/trainer (selecting tactics, setting formation and starting eleven, negotiating contracts and player transfers) but also as a chief executive, controlling merchandise prices, advertising, stadium and facilities expansions and staff management (which is one of the key aspects of the game).

Includes over 400 clubs, 21 playable leagues in 9 countries (England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Scotland, Holland, Belgium and Portugal) with over 20'000 players available. Game modes include career (starting at the bottom of the English conference), Free play (select any club, no chance of changing) and Scenario (complete an objective such as escaping relegation or winning domestic trophies within the time limit). Games can be instantly simulated or watched using a 2D radar or the 3D engine.

It was followed by FourFourTwo: Touchline Passion.

Trivia

Due to production problems, the version released is hardly complete: the autorun crashed on Windows 9x computers and the "powerful editor" not only allowed little more than changing names and the DoB of players, but also suffered from Windows version problems, as the widget that controls the nationality of players was reported to work only on some NT machines, leaving the majority of Windows users with garbled text where countries should be. To make things worse, If the default database was edited too much, the game would crash frequently.
