Football Manager 2023 adds many improvements to an already proven formula, delivering richer and more varied matches with deeper AI and team management. Too bad for the obsolete graphics during matches, in need of deep enhancement.

A totally immersive management experience creaking under the pressure of annual release culture. It needs extra time.

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.

The most realistic and engaging instalment of Football Manager yet, even if its improvements are extremely minor in themselves.

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.

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 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.

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.

Football manager 2023 is basically the same as the previous edition. An excellent game in itself for sports management fans, but frustrating because of the very limited new features.

Overall, Football Manager 2023 is another strong entry in the series. It's unlikely to convert anyone who isn't already passionate about what it has to offer, but it is brilliant for those who do. Would-be managers take note.

Headline features that don't have a lot going for them mean Football Manager 2023 is the smallest step forward in the series yet, but a step forward nonetheless, to make this the best FM game to date.

Although there is not much progress, Football Manager 2023 still has some new features worth trying. Many new actions have been added to the game. The stats, fan support, and new authorized content are interesting, but the lineup planner, scouting reports, and meetings are not very useful.players who want to experience a hardcore football game should try it out.

Football Manager 2023 might be a small improvement over its immediate predecessor, but it's still an incredibly accomplished management sim that you can easily sink hundreds of hours into.

Football Manager 2023 is a solid iteration of one of the most beloved sim franchises on the market. It's addictive as usual, it adds some welcomed new features and an extra layer of strategy and official licenses. Now all that remains is to fix the abnormal injury rate and we're done.

Football Manager still offers an unrivaled depth of experience, but this edition is more about a minor evolution and doesn't bring any really big new features. So, if you still have the previous edition on your drive and you are not a hardcore fan of the series, you will be fine with it.

Aside from excluding a vast swathe of the world from having the same opportunity to take control of their favourite teams as most Europeans do, Football Manager 23 Touch is a substantial step forward for the developer. For perhaps the first time they’ve figured out how to make the enormity of data that you’re going to spend hours looking at and tweaking playable with a controller. It might not sound like much, but that must have been a monumentally challenging UI effort, and the development team really did nail it.
