It’s only three days ago — on the 7th — that Adam told us all Wot He Thought of new sportsdad ’em up Motorsport Manager [official site] yet it feels so much longer. Should you have been dazed and possibly a bit drunk this week, slightly out of sync with the world, you might well appreciate a reminder that the game has now actually come out, launched overnight. This here Motorsport Manager is an expanded spin-off from Playsport Games’ mobile series of the same name, but don’t be put off by that. Adam will tell you this is good stuff.As he said in his Wot I Think:
“I’m unlikely to be hooked on Motorsport Manager for the rest of the year, as will be the case with Football Manager, but that’s mostly because I don’t particularly care for real life racing. It’s far from impenetrable if you don’t understand the sport itself though and the pit stops are a more immediately responsive tactical instruction than anything in Football Manager, which gives a good sense of direct control. Success is hard-won, a process of long hours developing headquarters and parts, as well as finding the right staff, but failure can be the result of a momentary loss of control or courage.”
Motorsport Manager is out on Steam for £24.99/34,99€/$34.99. It’s launched on Windows and Mac and is due on Linux “soon”.
Here, this trailer goes over some of what the PC version adds and changes:
