LMA Manager 2003 gives PS2 owners the only football management game created specifically for console players. The LMA Manager series dispensed with the standard PC-style management game furniture such as dull columns of text and figures in its first incarnation on the PlayStation, and introduced a fresh design, intuitive control and dynamic presentation of information and statistics. This latest version follows the same path to glory.

The game features 722 European football clubs, complete with authentic strips, player details and stadia for the 2002/2003 football season. In the UK, it continues the long-running endorsement from the League Managers Association.

LMA Manager 2003 features English, Scottish, French, German, Italian and Spanish divisions, all running matches simultaneously. This enables you to monitor every team's performance in every league, with detailed results available throughout the season. And if you fancy swapping clubs, simply move to another job on offer from any of the European clubs.

LMA Manager 2003 also boasts the most realistic and atmospheric 3D match action seen in any footy management sim, with incredible player intelligence, neat graphics and action replays. A detailed TV-style highlights section allows players to review match highlights along with commentary from the BBC's dream team, Gary Lineker and Alan Hansen.

LMA Manager 2003 enables players to analyse on-pitch action and make tactical changes and substitutions at any time. Virtual managers can shout instructions from the dugout via a quick press of the shoulder button, and can make decisions on their team and players based on exactly what they see. Real football managers don't sit in the dugout looking at a spreadsheet to assess how their players are performing – neither do LMA managers!
