We are Football is a love letter to old-school football manager titles, from which inherits virtues and vices. The holistic business management simulation is fun and the boardgame vibes works well on the long run, while the tactics aspect is a little bit clumsy and not so satisfying. Overall, it's a lighter, indie and quite different alternative to Football Manager series, with a great database editor too.

We Are Football is an accessible management sim for all skill levels, and whilst it might not be the best out there, it's still a lot of fun.

The mistake not to make when testing this game (and you, playing it), is to consider that it is worse than the competition because it has no license. In reality, it is different, because it proposes an approach based entirely on strategy and the ground, freeing itself from any realistic considerations.

There are some good ideas present and it looks far more promising than most of the Football Manager clones that have come and gone.

While they might share the same genre, We Are Football isn't trying to be the new Football Manager. Winning Streak's game offers a lighter formula, with some quirks here and there like sabotaging the field lights, but the logic that dictates the outcome of matches feels to unstable, and the lack of official licenses might not be welcome by some.

We Are Football is an immediate managerial experience that has no ambition (and how it could?) to take the throne of the genre, but it may interest football lovers who are looking for a simplified yet smart gameplay.

We Are Football has definitely taken a whole new look at management games and brought a lot of innovation. The match engine and general nonsense in the game can be tolerated up to a point. But it doesn't make much sense to buy it at full price.

We Are Football tries to provide a fun experience of football coaching but has a lot of weaknesses compared to works like Football Manager.

The football management space needs more options and more innovation. The developers clearly try to focus on the match and the squad interactions while also offering more club-based features for those who want it. I liked the time I spent with We Are Football but it's unlikely that I will use it to play a ten-year-long Liverpool campaign anytime soon.

Not as good as Football Manager and it even feels too random sometimes, but it can attract more casual players.

We Are Football is a game that has great potential to face the Football Manager in a few years. However, she faces a long road and hours of practice to climb to the top and break through to a wide audience.

Not having a single licensed team or roster just makes it really hard for me to get invested in it. Sure, it has an editor, but that means we will have to wait a bit until a community becomes large enough to start releasing roster updates for the public.

With a different gameplay focus, bright and breezy presentation, a simple yet effective match engine and a long overdue women’s football management mode, We Are Football does a pretty decent job of setting itself apart from Football Manager. However, a cluttered and messy UI, when combined with a frankly overwhelming amount of information to process, served to be pretty off-putting and left me pining for the relative simplicity of FM Touch.
