ANSTOSS 4: Der Fußballmanager - Edition 03/04 is an updated version of ANSTOSS 4. The player takes the role of a manager/coach and is responsible for the financial and athletic side of the club by changing many big or small setting in menus.
The main focus of this version is on removing the bugs, expanding the possibilities in certain aspects (for example going public or finances) and making the game feel more like the first three games of the series. This is evident with a reworked interface and the removal of the 3D match representation. Now the player has the choice between the scene mode, in which only separated highlights are shown, or the expanded text mode (or one of its variants). In a new playing mode players can merge two savegames into one and compete with a friend.
