It’s been a year since we first heard that Football, Tactics & Glory would be coming to consoles. But now, after missing the first release promise, it’s here – with a launch on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch ensuring that lovers of the beautiful game now have some kind of opposition to the usual FIFA and PES affairs.
Priced up at a cool £33.49 and available right now from the usual digital stores, Football, Tactics & Glory does away with the tried and tested football methods employed by the likes of EA with FIFA 20 and Konami and eFootball PES 2020, to instead go deep on the tactical side of things, skipping the boring parts and delivering a strategic take on the global game.
Football, Tactics & Glory on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch takes the basics of football management and keeps things utterly simple, working as a turn-based strategy game that could possibly ensure it appeals to more than the average football fan. Doing away with spreadsheets and numbers, it instead sees you attempting to place your team strategically on the pitch, capitalising on the weaknesses of your opponents to deliver a unique take on the football scene. With the chance to work your way up through the leagues, partake in cup runs, buy and sell players, and ultimately become league and cup double winners, Football, Tactics & Glory certainly comes at a unique angle.
Throw in a deep face editor letting you amend the look of your players, the promise of ‘smooth animations’ and the chance to hit up the online world, and you’ll fast realise how this game differs from the usual fast paced soccer takes.
If you wish to give it a shot and can stomach that pretty hefty price tag, then head on over to the Xbox Store, the PlayStation Store, or the Nintendo eShop and grab your download.
