Premier Manager on PS3

54 Replies 5,240 Views Created 28-07-2010

 

Just seen on a website that 'Premier Manager' should be on PS Store now - for ps3 - a full blown title - not a mini.

 

Seen a video and it looks half decent...

 

Anybody splashed out the £13.99? is it any good? (can't be any worse than the Championship Manager mini.....)

 

Please let me know

 

Cheers,

I would like to get it, as the ps3 hasn't had a football management game.
but I don't really want to be spending £14 on something that I can't find info on.
I'll look for vids and reviews over the next few days before I buy

I'm guessing your John Hughes Product Manager? If so you should get a Dev tag so we know who you are ;)

 

I'm very tempted by this game just need to know more does it use real player names?

I read somewhere that it uses the players last name and the initial of the first name.  E.G S.Gerrard but not Steven Gerrard ;)

Whatever you do, do NOT buy this game!!!

 

I purchased it earlier and its the worst game I've played in a long time. I enjoy manager games and this is advertised as being a game for "hardcore and casual gamers", this game is so fiddly an slow its unbelievable, and if your keen on getting stuck in to all aspects of management it takes forever. There are only a handful of trophies and most of them are bronze. There is no style about the game and there's nothing creative to do.

 

If you buy it, you will regret it...I am contacting Sony Europe about this, I know they don't offer refunds and I don't expect one but I do expect that games are advertised correctly especially given the fact that they do not give refunds.

Thank you so much for replying to this thread... I was so close to buying the game...

Cant be arsed to waste anymore of my life thinking about this terrbile game so im posting the eamil i sent to psn network services:::

 

Hello,

I am a frequent PS Store user/buyer and have never had a problem with it, until this afternoon. This afternoon I visited the store and viewed a game called Premier Manager, the game is advertised as being for "Hardcore and Casual Gamers" and as "The Definitive pick-up and play experience". So as a football manager gaming fan I went ahead and purchased the title for a little steep but promising £13.99. Then subsequently downloaded the game at a very small 180Mb (slightly concerned now), I installed the game for my screen to go black for 2 minutes before a generic ps3 loading bar appeared (getting more concerned). Eventually the 180Mb game loaded and I set off to become a great manager. No, this will never happen. One look at the game screen and anyone who plays these sorts of games can see that this is far below a standard expected for a ps3 title. I wasn't expecting fancy graphics but I certainly wasn't expecting a screen that was harder to navigate
than boat with 1 oar, a game that would take an hour to work out and minutes to get annoyed with. Simple things have been deeply overlooked and the controls are terrible, the menus are even worse and nothing does what you ask it.

Anyway, as you do not offer refunds I expect that games advertised on your store are advertised correctly, as some of the tag lines to this game are in inverted commas I presume they have quoted someone and would like to know whom. In future please check the titles and there advertising as this is misleading (if you think I'm over-reacting have a try yourself!), as you may find people turn their backs from buying on-line and go back to the highstreet where they can return their games if they have been mis-sold!

Many Thanks for wasting my hard-earned £13.99

Always wait for some reviews when a never-heard-about-it-before game goes on sale.

After playing this game solidly for 3 hours tonight, I think it`s worthy to counter some (not all) of the arguments presented here, specifically those generated by PSYCHO_SEAN:

 

I didn`t get the 2 minute wait time, or generic loading bar,  that was mentioned, it loaded and installed like any other game (perhaps a problem with your PS3 or Router?)

 

I agree that at face value the menus are not user-friendly, but with a bit of lateral thinking they are relatively simple to navigate after 5-10 mins. 

 

Quote - "Nothing does what you ask it"....? You don`t elaborate here but I found the only annoyance to be the Transfer Market (specifically selling players). The rest is relatively straight forward if you look at the Help sections on the screen which explain what each button does.

 

I am not playing Devil`s Advocate - I agree that it has not been play-tested to the greatest degree - but it IS a fun and rewarding Management sim, and something the PS3 sorely needed. Here`s hoping it`s the start of a trend.

I think the majority of Football Manager fans are being very very harsh on Premier Manager on the PlayStation 3.

 

Lets look at it from another perspective for a second before the games release there was no Football Manager game for PlayStation 3 Exept the mini,s Championship manager. And Football fans was crying out for a footy manager title.

 

Now with the greatness of Football Manger this means that the majority of people will judge this game on a PC Game which is not truly fair to be honest.  Yes premier manager has a tricky control system no it does not have a commentry to go with the matches but its NOT Football Manager and never will be so stop comparing a PlayStation 3 game to a PC one.

 

And if you are buying this title expecting Football Mnager dont bother by the PC game instead you wont have to rant on here then will you about how bad a ps3 manager game is

I'm not a fan of Football Manager... and now because a few other people think its good I'm now reconsidering the purchase of this game... But I'm still gonna wait for a review or a blog post :)

If you like old school footy management games but don't play the mammoth PC games then Premier Manager is a decent & fun little game - although perhaps over priced at £13.99.

 

PSYCHO_SEAN - worst game you've ever played??  - you must not have tried the Championship Manager mini then!

Do NOT buy this ‘game’.

 

I started out as Leicester City (my team) and some issues after 5 minutes of playing the game:

 

- Half the players listed are in the wrong positions and the stats for each player seem totally random and made up - I say 'stats' I can't actually see player ratings anywhere???
- Transfers VERY poor – We still have Paul Dickov who left months ago, yet we have Tom Kennedy who has only recently joined.

 

- The BIG one, I made my first signing…David Beckham – on £250k a week. Fair enough, a few inconsistencies with player positions etc, but Leicester being able to sign David Beckham? ANY credibility is lost right there.

 

The interface is nice, but the actual mechanics are woeful. How can I get any enjoyment playing the game, or be safe in the knowledge that I'm 'managing' the team and making good decisions when the game allows me to sign David Beckham?

 

Refund Please. Disgraceful. I look forward to someone challenging me.
