Description

Worldwide Soccer Manager 2008 is the fourth installment in the soccer management series. It builds on the original concept while adding numerous new features.

Tweaks and enhancements in this installment include a mini radar pitch appearing during tactical changes, a new advisor system, an improved notebook system, a revamped captain selection, and widescreen support. There is also a TV view, and players can hold press conferences before and after matches. Other additions include international management, the board and fan confidence system, the award system, the finance system and a new calender.

The game also includes a transfer centre to track transfers; for the first time, players can choose a female manager. Both versions (PC and console) include online play. Game data is based on the 2008/09 football season featuring over 5,000 playable clubs from over 50 countries, and around 350,000 players and staff from around the world.
