As it stands, fairly little has been added this year, but the developers did fix a number of previous issues. Long-time fans of the series will probably still pick up the game for roster updates, but casual players may be hesitant to pick up 2017 as I don’t believe the changes are great enough to warrant another purchase.

Football Manager 2017 is more of the same, just bigger, better, and more refined. For many, that is exactly what the series needed.
Paul Walker-EmigNov 04, 2016
The greatest strength of Football Manager 2017 is that it removes the barriers between you and those stories. There is less time wasted clicking through menus and less occasion for you to feel like a loss is a result of something you forgot to do, rather than something you can accept as your own mistake. It’s far from revolutionary, but it is a very well refined version of Football Manager that empowers the player by putting all the information you need at your fingertips.
Chris WrayNov 26, 2016
Football Manager 2017 isn't a revolutionary update to the series, but it's the best in a good number of years. The new match engine is such a huge improvement and the AI enhancements add to the overall feeling that this is the most realized football management game yet, feeling more realistic than ever before.
Fraser GilbertNov 11, 2016
This is a simulator of epic proportions. It offers unparalleled realism, retaining the great qualities of past versions while adding an additional layer of balance and true-to-life managerial elements. It's guaranteed to stick long in the memory, as team talks, highlight reels and press conferences populate your daydreams for the next year. Watch out, it will take over your life.
Richard WakelingNov 22, 2016
Football Manager 2017 is not a game of revolution, but one of refinement. Transfers are smarter and more involved, and the faster player development and the aforementioned streamlining of information are welcome. The perennial strengths of Football Manager are stronger than ever, yet it’s the furtive improvements to the match engine that really set Football Manager 2017 apart from its immediate predecessor.
Bengt LemneNov 02, 2016
Football Manager is as addictive as ever. And it's seemingly polished as we only came across one slight issue in well over 40 hours of gameplay (we were locked out of switching tactics after having mucked about with the menus). These days it's a very complete experience for football fans of all types as it offers both Fantasy Draft, Touch and a highly customisable career mode where you pretty much decide your role and how much you want to micromanage your club.
Nathan HunterNov 01, 2016
For me, Football Manager 2017 is undoubtedly the best game in the series, and even when results aren’t going my way, I’m desperate to come back and go again. The changes to the match day experience are superb, and the social feed is a touch of genius.
Aran SuddiNov 04, 2016
Football Manager 2017 is a major step up from last year’s entry, has even more detail in it, and doesn’t relax its grip on players. You’ll smile as your team thumps another, feel miffed when your team loses to weaker opposition, and swear you’ll never play again when you get fired for the team’s poor performance. Yet the new career option tempts you and the cycle begins anew. Football Manager 2017 isn’t just a simulation game, but something that will permeate your life.

This is all part of Football Manager’s considerable charm. The standard Career mode is as complex and accomplished as ever – although some of you might worry about the lack of real changes since last year’s outing – and a fairly recent addition, Fantasy Draft, is a superb way to kill a few hours with a friend online, pitting you against each other following a lengthy draft on a set budget.
Chris WhiteNov 01, 2016
Even if the changes outside player AI and the social feed feel more like tiny improvements than anything substantial. it's still a remarkable simulation and the best on the market.
Mr PinkertonNov 08, 2016
The really frustrating thing about Football Manager 2017 – and again this goes for most yearly sequels – is that because it is very slightly better than last year’s game that means this is technically one of the best management sims ever made. If this happens to be your first one it’s going to seem amazing (assuming you’re prepared for the graphics) and you won’t understand what any of the complaints about.

Sports Interactive must be commended on doing a really excellent job in finessing not just the contents - old and new - but the UI, to a level where it's not only less taxing to navigate, but elevates the overall experience and enjoyment of the game.

Con Football Manager 2017 nos encontramos en una complicada diatriba. Por una parte, sabemos que Sports Interactive lo tiene muy difícil para mejorar unos cada vez más completos títulos bajo su paraguas de desarrolladores. Si los resultados son año tras años mejores, hay momentos en los que la innovación no es suficiente. Pero también somos conscientes de que actualmente, la saga se encuentra en una postura un tanto acomodaticia.
Jorge S. FernándezMar 03, 2017
Football Manager 2017 sigue manteniendo el nivel del mejor juego de gestión futbolística que existe, pero ya muestra ciertos síntomas de agotamiento, no siendo quizás suficientes las novedades que ofrece para justificar el salto a la edición de este año.
Álvaro CastellanoNov 08, 2016
Football Manager 2017 apenas presenta novedades con respecto a la entrega anterior, y las pocas que incorpora son de una importancia bastante relativa. ¿Por qué así y todo tiene un 8,0? Porque la base es estupenda: Tanto que es un videojuego totalmente imprescindible para los que llevan unos años sin comprárselo, y también muy recomendable para quienes no buscan novedades sino más de lo mismo pero un poco mejor. Adicción y profundidad en estado puro.
Javi OriaNov 02, 2016
Estamos ante lo esperable de una nueva entrega de esta saga: juego con una cantidad abrumadora de contenido, con novedades en diversas opciones y algunas mejoras técnicas en la recreación de los partidos. Football Manager continúa sin tener rival en este terreno, aunque cabría preguntarse si la franquicia no ofrece severos signos de estancamiento. La pérdida de algunas licencias tampoco es una buena noticia.
Mathias OertelNov 10, 2016
Läuft der Trainer-Simulator hier wieder zur Höchstform auf und sorgt für Emotionen vor dem Bildschirm, während durch die neuen Social Feeds und die allgemein verbesserte Übersicht die Atmosphäre gesteigert wird. Das wird allerdings u.a. durch die Gespräche und Pressekonferenzen wieder relativiert, die mangels Variation oder gar Optimierung in diesem Jahr zunehmend an Reiz verlieren.
Florian VelterNov 02, 2016
Comme d'habitude, ce sont les habitués de Football Manager qui devraient à nouveau se ruer sur cette nouvelle version. Ce sont eux qui seront les plus à même d'en déceler les nouveautés ultra-subtiles. Et paradoxalement, ce sont eux qui en ont le moins "besoin", tant cette version est similaire à la précédente. Alors oui, cette nouvelle édition reste forcément un peu meilleure que la précédente, mais de là à valoir l'investissement d'un jeu complet, c'est un peu dur.
Olivier CortinovisNov 03, 2016
Cette nouvelle mouture propose un jeu un poil plus léché, plus aérien, propulsé par un moteur 3D perfectionné. Sports Interactive s'est risqué à délaisser quelque peu son traditionnel football de possession (contenu XXL, base de données vertigineuse, souplesse de l'interface) pour une philosophie plus verticale et une projection vers l'avant (interactivité avec les médias, apparition des réseaux sociaux, authenticité des transferts).

Football Manager 2017 é a melhor entrada da série. Apresenta diversas novidades significativas, que ajudam o jogador a ser melhor treinador virtual, ao mesmo tempo que agilizam os processos e fazem com que este não se torne um simulador aborrecido a partir do Natal. No entanto, algumas novidades parecem ser mais uma 'gimmick' que seguem as tendências da sociedade atual do que algo que contribui efetivamente para uma experiência mais enriquecedora.
Francesco UrsinoNov 01, 2016
In conclusione, dunque, Football Manager 2017 è sempre e comunque un gioco superbo, appassionante e capace di incollare allo schermo per centinaia di ore. Questo vale ancora di più per i giocatori che non hanno mai provato alcun titolo della serie, o che hanno interrotto la loro carriera da allenatori virtuali da qualche anno. Allo stesso modo, la presenza di alcuni difetti dell’edizione 2016, è bene dirlo, in specifici ambiti non sembra sia stata eliminata in maniera totale, e di questo i giocatori più esigenti forse potrebbero tenerne conto
Rosario SalatielloNov 01, 2016
Football Manager 2017 è un prodotto migliorato in diversi aspetti, in grado di garantire la più completa esperienza manageriale rispetto alle uscite degli ultimi anni. Allo stesso tempo, le novità da esso introdotte non rappresentano svolte come quelle delle edizioni precedenti, al punto che a qualcuno questo capitolo potrà sembrare poco più di un aggiornamento di Football Manager 2016 alla stagione calcistica in corso.

Nota conclusiva sul mio personalissimo cartellino (“gaillo”, sia chiaro!): pur non riscontrando nulla di realmente rivoluzionario, Football Manager 2017 si produce in qualche spunto degno di nota e si dimostra una simulazione migliorata rispetto alla passata stagione. Nel frattempo, un certo Thiago Messi (classe 2012) ha iniziato ad allenarsi a La Masia. Ad averci i soldi di Inzaghi...

Özetlemek gerekirse ufak tefek hatalar ve ufak tefek yeniliklerle dolu bir FM olmuş. Güzel mi diye sorarsanız tabi ki güzel, 114 saat oynamışım. Ama dediğim noktalarda iyileştirme yapsalar tadından yenmez diyebilirim. Neyse, yazımın sonuna geldiğime göre gidip takımı şampiyon yapmaya çalışayım...

Football Manager 2017 doet precies alles wat je gewend bent van de franchise. Een soepele, nagenoeg complete, voetbalervaring die met de nieuwe toevoegingen weer een stapje dichterbij de werkelijkheid is gekomen. Hierdoor verlies je zonder dat je het door hebt vrij eenvoudig meerdere uren in een enkele speelsessie en dat is toch de kracht van de game.

Wil je als nieuwkomer graag aan de Football Manager-serie beginnen, dan is deze game een uitstekende keuze. Dit is de meest complete versie van de game op dit moment en als je dus helemaal blanco begint, of een tijdje uit de roulatie bent geweest en weer een nieuwe Football Manager wil oppakken, dan ben je met Football Manager 2017 aan het juiste adres. Het is alleen zo jammer dat we op dat adres precies hetzelfde huis vinden dat we vorig jaar hebben achtergelaten.

Football Manager 2017 uppfinner inte hjulet på nytt. Men det behövs inte heller, då spelserien i stort är så pass inkörd och utmejslad att det sällan krävs större förändringar. Nyheterna som implementerats i matchmotor och statistikdelen känns stabila och välkomna medan mycket av de övriga nyheterna mest var fokus på det kosmetiska så som färgen på slips eller om din manager ska ha glasögon.
