Ok, we’re not necessarily in agreement with Square Enix’s decision to put Arsenal’s long-serving manager on the cover – being that they haven’t exactly won any major silverware lately – but hey, it’s your game. Champ Man 15 – short for Championship Manager, we suppose – is Square Enix’s attempt at getting into the football management simulation game market.
Arsene Wenger’s face notwithstanding, you have to understand that the serious football management genre has always been dominated by the big boys (a.k.a. Electronic Arts), although there are some alternative cartoon-y sims that do the job as well. Square Enix has always been known for its great action games, and so to venture into the realm of sports games is a bit odd.
That said, it seems that Champ Man 15 meets all the requirements for a football management sim. As a user, you can choose from over 400 teams across an impressive 23 leagues. You get to have access to players from England, Scotland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, and Portugal – all the ones with big football leagues. You get to pick formations, training regimens – all standard stuff.
The game is available as a free download with IAP via the Google Play Store, so check out the source link if you’re interested. And then give us a holler if you’v tried it. I’m still on the fence with this one. Maybe your opinion about it can finally convince me to download a game with Wenger’s famous frown up front.
