ANSTOSS 2: Der Fußballmanager is a soccer management simulation for 1-4 players. You are in charge of a club, participating in one of the 13 featured leagues. Start to design a training concept, implement a revolutionary tactical system and you might be on the right way. The goal is simple: reach for gold, participate in national and international competitions and win 'em all. Additionally you are responsible for the financial aspects, e.g. by building a better stadium, hiring employees, betting on other games, etc.
The matches are presented in 3D cutscenes. You can exchange players, adapt tactics to new situations or weather conditions, but don't participate directly.
The in-game comments were spoken by Günter-Peter Ploog, who was chief reporter at Germany's only Pay TV channel premiere at that time.
In 1998, ANSTOSS 2 has won the Gold-Award from the German VUD (Verband der Unterhaltungssoftware Deutschland - Entertainment Software Association Germany) for selling more then 100,000 (but less then 200,000) units in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
