Ultimate Soccer Manager is a managerial soccer game developed and published by Impressions in 1995 for DOS and Amiga. It was designed by David Lester and Neal Sumsion.
The game is played by interacting with the world, clicking on the different buildings to access their options, or clicking on the items in your office (filing cabinet, tv, etc.). You take control of your own field and team in this business simulation. Obviously the goal is to have a successful and money making stadium/team. You control everything from ticket prices to advertising to players. You can also purchase many improvements for your field grounds to make those high ticket prices worth it. Buy and sell players as your leisure as well as change their names. When actually playing soccer you see the field from above and you can even micromanage the game while it's being played. Speed it up, slow it down, or substitute players. You can also bet on and fix the games if you so choose.
Soccer fans will find this fun if they ever wanted to play soccer from a managerial position. In terms of pure football/soccer management, it's probably not at the same level of Championship Manager 2. Still, on the other side, Ultimate Soccer Manager gives the players many more options in terms of business simulation, and many appreciate it for this reason.
