The release of the new soccer manager game , SM22 in the past few days has attracted different opinions and as the rating can tell, more negative ones. 

The developer got many fans of the game excited about the game through the sneek peaks only to end up launching something less than the expectations of the people. I for one I am totally disappointed. In sm21, I gave a full star rating but for Sm22 so far even with the update released today, I am dropping a one star rating  (sadly no halfstar). Worse still the admin reply to emails has been awful.


The big question is, what happened to the Loan to buy option and the Pre-Contract option promised. Those options were in the video and do not even work in the game. They don't exist. Was this a strategy to get people to download, obviously a bad one because it brought up the fraud heat.

I really need a game developer from SM to reply to this post with an explanation because I will continue to drop a bad review for this game on all websites till the needful is done.

when you guys do well, we give you the pat!

And when you think you can fool us? Then we bin the game.


3.7 ratings in the first six days, it will get more worse unless something is done.

I couldn't agree more, the latest game is absolutely awful.


I just don't know where to begin with how angry and disappointed I am with the latest iteration of the game. It's absolutely atrocious.

They offer VIP upgrades and free credits for those willing to pay and/or invest time, both of which I am and have done. Yet I have just spent 2 hours repeatedly trying and continually failing to beat the bottom of the table side despite EVERYTHING being in my favour.
Two hours.
And not just this. I upgraded my training facilities, yet now my players improve less than before. What?? My training, youth and first team are all at a significantly higher standard than they have any right to be in the non league, yet the youth fester in the 30s skill wise, the first team can't win no matter what and only one player is improving in any way. It's absolutely ridiculous.
This game has always been for me an absolute joy. I mean that, it's pure escapism and it's always been just the right level of challenging and remaining fun yet winnable. But they have completely removed the joy from it now. It's infuriating and awful. The match play is such a step down from last season...why?!! The home page is gauche and the league table not visible...why??? There are so many more glitches now, there always have been but they were liveable, now it's just adding insult to injury.
The overwhelming number of statistics are no help whatsoever when clearly the result is predestined in almost every case. It's not even difficult, it's just completely, unrealistically unfair now. And to take money in exchange for this is just not on. At all. I note with great sadness that despite my formerly raised concerns they STILL lead with "ad free" for the VIP packages even though this is nothing like actually true.
I am so incredibly disappointed with this release and so angry at the time and money I've spent on it already.
I'd like to know if they have any plans whatsoever to fix things...or if this (what I experience as an) unfair, unwinnable, unenjoyable, unlikeable game is truly what they believe the public want and therefore what we're stuck with for another year.
Going by the Google reviews (which all seem to tie in with my experience) I'd be beyond amazed if it was the latter but really, over to the devs.
