Football managers for iPhone and iPad are extremely rare in App Store, there are even fewer competitors for a first-class manager from Nordeus Top Eleven 2015. The app was appreciated not only by gamers themselves , but also the editors of the online store App Store, the game has earned the Editor's Choice marker and is firmly entrenched in the corresponding section of the store. Than the manager has hooked on the rather demanding censors, let's figure it out. Top Eleven 2015 is a full-fledged football manager for iPhone and iPad, which can compete not only with all known similar games for mobile operating systems, but also for more powerful desktop PCs. The game allows you to plunge into the everyday life of a professional football manager, who combines the work of a head coach, a club manager and a scout. In general, the whole life of the club is in your hands, in the hands of one single person. The quality of the training of the players and the game tactics in a football match will depend on your decisions. It's yours to conclude contracts with advertisers and sponsors, build infrastructure facilities, conclude contracts with skates and participate in tenders for players. One of the main features of Top Eleven 2015 is that there is only 1 mode available in the game, a career mode. Forget about heading an eminent European club at the start, you will have to raise your own team, for which you can come up with a name yourself. Forget about real football teams, you will compete in “managerial” skills with real players from all over the world. The developers' idea is very, very interesting. To keep your eyes from scattering over the numerous and incomprehensible menus to the uninitiated player at the start, you need to go through a short training. They will tell you about the peculiarities of the game tactics, show you how to change the composition and tactics, as well as how to keep track of the game schedule. Another playable feature is the real time in the game. Those. if the match is scheduled for March 05 at 19:00, please be so kind as to pick up iPhone or iPad if you want to follow the progress of the match and be able to influence its outcome. If you are late, the match will take place without your presence, you can see its statistics and overall result. Bonuses are awarded for daily matches in the game, so do not abandon the game for a long time. If for some reason you are unable to start the game at the scheduled time for the match, take care to determine the starting lineup and playing tactics in advance. The schedule of matches in the League can be changed, but for this you will need the most valuable game currency, the so-called tokens. They can be purchased in the store (the game is distributed through the “in-app purchase” model) or received as gifts for daily participation in matches. Tokens will also be required to improve players, as well as to speed up the construction of infrastructure facilities. You can do without a purchase, but in this case the game will stretch very much, for example: it will take real 3 days or 15 tokens to build a playground for juniors of the first level. In addition to managing the team, you will take on the task of making contacts with sponsors, working with scouts and participating in tenders for the purchase of new players. There are 3 different tournaments available in Top Eleven 2015: League (Main), Cup and Champions League. You will be able to take part in the Champions League only if your club is in the main standings at least 4th position, it will not be easy to achieve such results. The management of the club's infrastructure is worthy of all praise, the objects are three-dimensional, zoom and rotation of the camera are available. The number of objects and their improvements is impressive, there is something to strive for. If we talk about the interface and the quality of the graphics, the manager is worthy! The menu is simple and consists of separate categories (Team, Training, Transfers, etc.). Even a beginner will not be able to get lost in the numerous windows and their assignments. A few words about what upsets Top Eleven 2015:
- It's almost impossible to play without tokens, and if it is real, then for a very long time.
- Tokens are quite expensive, although there are discounts.
- Only text broadcast is available for the match. The movements of the players and the quality of their play cannot be judged from the text. Who or what determines the outcome of the match remains a big question.
- An internet connection is required to play.
It is not realistic to describe all the possibilities and impressions of a full-fledged football manager like Top Eleven 2015 in one review. As a gamer who is familiar with desktop managers, I will say: the game was a pleasant surprise! You need to see this yourself, especially since you don't need money to download and install the game on iPhone and iPad, the game is distributed free of charge (with the exception of tokens). If you have both devices (iPhone and iPad), playing on a larger diagonal is more convenient and easier.
