From Strategyinformer.com: "Let’s start with the facts. Football Manager 2012 is undoubtedly the best of the series. As ever, it’s addictive enough to mortgage your house, divorce your wife and leave your kids without feeling any remorse. At the same time it’s still the glorified spreadsheet that expects the player to create football narratives.

Nothing has changed, yet everything has changed".
