Alex Ferguson's Player Manager 2001 for PlayStation
If you’ve ever wondered what the experience of managing your own football club would be like, this is the game for you. Plunge into a world of club accounts, drawing up training schedules, and making deals over players, with a database of 20,000 different footballers, each of them with their own strengths that your rigorous training regimes can be worked to fit around, by way of an expansive tactics editor. You can watch the resulting games your club of choice partake in within a frame-by-frame mode, with different camera angles (including a free-cam) and option to zoom in or out. The game plays into the strengths of an experience desired by someone more interest in the business behind the beautiful game, loaded with information provided by the titular Alex Ferguson himself on the inner workings of the game itself, such as field tactics, team formations, statistics, and even the workings of the various leagues; all of the information is presented in such a way that a casual or first time player is able to comprehend it, however.
