Critic Reviews for Football Manager 2023
Football Manager is still the best sim of its kind, but FM23's serious lack of major improvements shows an annual release schedule taking its toll.
A totally immersive management experience creaking under the pressure of annual release culture. It needs extra time.
The most realistic and engaging instalment of Football Manager yet, even if its improvements are extremely minor in themselves.
If we talk about football simulators, Football Manager 2023 is simply perfect, the problem is that right now there is a ceiling that has not been knocked down for several years. For the franchise to really step up it is necessary to start improving other aspects of the game and the continental licenses is a start although somewhat insufficient. We'll keep waiting.

Football Manager 2023 is the most complete football management simulator yet, offering players tons of depth, but also letting them decide how deep they want to go. Just like real football, Football Manager 2023 captures the highs and lows of match days while engrossing you in this virtual football world.
God is a Geek
Football Manager 2023 offers plenty of depth for fans wanting to fully immerse themselves, but there aren't a ton of noticeable improvements. It's still an incredible game, but those wanting to see a huge step-up from last year's won't really find it here.
In all, Football Manager 23 represents another step forward for the franchise but it’s a title win without much competition. The changes to recruitment and squad planning are impressive and welcome, but the lack of an overhaul to the match engine may leave players wanting more. The addition of Champions League graphics – yes, you don’t have to download a third-party image pack anymore – helps improve the realism and overall story of your saves but it’s ultimately not a game-changer. It’s still a must-have for any football fan, of course, and you’ll find yourself in that classic routine of ‘just one more match’ before long.
The Games Machine
Sports Interactive aims to bring Football Manager 2023 to all home consoles and brings a little change to the new chapter. Despite everything, FM23 is an excellent, precise and satisfying game, with the European licenses finally returning.
