Advertorial: the new (2004) edition of LMA Manager is out on the PS2. I LOVE IT. It’s better looking than ever; the new features are exactly what I’d have asked for; the match engine produces something which looks a little bit similar to actual football; and it seems to be even tougher to get it together in the lower leagues, which is all to the good. The level of realism and depth, though still not exactly high (Leeds start ‘7m in the black; players and board alike shrug off transfer offers from Man U), is at least getting to the point where I don’t feel quite so much rockist guilt about never being arsed with Championship Manager. Your reviewer’s summary: NUM NUM.
