Football Manager 2010 handheld (2010)

iPhone/iPod Touch

Football Manager 2010 was released on Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch for £7 (a far cry from the £0.69 games available now), but was it worth your money? The fact that it was as addictive as Class A narcotics strongly suggests it very much was (as did our Football Manager 2010 handheld review). Based on the 1998-era Championship Manager with a 20,000-strong database of modern players, it was simply irresistible to all virtual dugout regulars.
