ANSTOSS 4: Der Fußballmanager - International is the fourth main game of the German ANSTOSS soccer manager series.
The main difference to its predecessor ANSTOSS 3 is the simplification and restriction of the economical part of your manager life. You can no longer do whatever you want with the money of your club. The president states budgets for salaries or player transfers and if you don't want to get fired, you shouldn't ignore them. This instalment brings back the scene mode for match presentation known from ANSTOSS 2 and features both the full match representation and the text mode from the predecessor.
Due to countless bugs the game was nearly unplayable and was heavily criticized by the press and fans of the series. Instead of fixing the problems with patches, Ascaron decided to create a completely new game, ANSTOSS 4: Edition 03/04.
