Box art for Football Director DS on, appropriately enough, the Nintendo DS.
This slimmed-down football sim has a lot going for it. It’s fully-licenced (for 2008), it has a nicely implemented interface, it’s technically impressive, and it has just enough features to make it feel like a robust simulation without going full Football Manager. But, it also lacks polish, variety, and consistency.
It’s the West Ham Utd. of football sims, then.
