FIFA MANAGER 12 is the eleventh edition of the franchise, and clearly focuses on the offline mode and offers a huge number of more than 700 new features and improvements.
As a manager in FM12 you have complete control over the management of a modern football club. In the game you are responsible for the line-up, the tactics and training of your team, for signing the right players and the extension of your club facilities and the stadium. The special highlights in FM12 are the FIFA license, the FIFA 3D engine, more than 41,000 licensed players, 13,000 of whom come with original player pictures, the player manager and national team manager mode, the Create-a-Club mode and the Match Prognosis Tool as well as a unique, comprehensive editor.
3D match - A special highlight this year is the 3D game option of FIFA MANAGER 12. This area of the game representation is a matter close to the heart for a lot of fans of the franchise, so that this year a whole team consisting of designers, graphic artists and programmers have put the entire logic of the 3D mode to the test and completely reprogrammed large sections of it.
New club facilities - 25 buildings with a total of 289 configuration levels are reproduced in detail. In addition there are up to three stadia with up to 120,000 seats directly on the club grounds.
Finances - The financial sector in FIFA MANAGER 12 is also entirely new. Cubs and players have to first gain the trust of the financial markets through sporting successes. Realistic revenue of the main sponsors help to exactly reflect the large financial differences between top clubs and a smaller club in the game.
Transfer market - In the transfer section you can now field players in trials in test matches or commission a detailed analysis of the squad so the team's weak points can be specifically eliminated. Due to the fact that all the AI managers make use of these squad analysis options, the transfers will once again become even more realistic. In this way AI clubs can also cash in expensive stars who do not want to extend their contracts just before their contracts expire.
Classic areas in a new look - A whole range of new options will be available to you in the calendar. From the charity event to direct friendly match queries and extending to lactate tests, no wishes are left unfulfilled.
Your feature! - The fans have been able to directly influence the content of the new FIFA MANAGER game for the first time due to the "Your Feature!" campaign. In seven ballots several thousand participants have, for instance, opted for features such as “Pre-match Speeches”, “Hosting a European cup final match”, a “Trial training day for hobby players”, and the revamping of the “Final 24 hours of the transfer market”.
Online mode - The online mode that was successfully launched two years ago should also, of course, not be absent in FM12. All the premium features from the previous year were made freely accessible for all players. The players can now exchange various action items in return for their manager points, there is an extensive avatar editor and the option of creating fantasy leagues. A large number of new statistics rounds off this game section.

Fifa Manager 2012 is just great. It has a load of licensed teams, with detailed player models and infromation about each one. There are tons of management options, though much hasn't been improved from the previous games in the franchise. The simulations are realistic and fun to watch. This is a great game, every football fan should try it!
