Football Manager Handheld 2013
Different to the 2012 version, there are now two new leagues – those from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to further the managerial choice. The game also comes with a variety of new and noteworthy features. You can now name your captain, you can recall from and move players to the Reserve squad, and finally a player form "hot"/"cold" list. You now have a single player comparison where all the required information is presented on one screen.
Player Profile screens now have actual player faces like the PC version (which had already been doing this for a few years). This is, however, restricted to licensed players (FiFPro license). Sadly, club emblems are not present for all of the teams. There is now also a focus on increased media interactivity. The press now directly ask you about a player’s future, question transfer speculation and the like.
Gameplay-wise the game hasn’t changed all that much from last year’s version. There are only minor bug fixes, speed increases and general smoothness. Visually the game hasn’t really moved on, apart from again minor changes.
As a means to make the game more user-friendly, now you can buy unlockables and challenges in a store. Although sadly this year's version still includes the "money cheat".
The price of Football Manager 2013 Handheld is £6.99.
