LMA Managers pioneering use of a 3D match has become a defining game element for the series legions of players. Now, the games enhanced visual engine will make full use of next-generation rendering systems, adding normal mapping, parallax mapping, and realistic lighting effects for even more detail that really brings match day home. The Xbox 360 edition of the game also plays out in glorious widescreen, giving you an even better view of the action. Seeing your team play out your tactics in detail enables you to make instant decisions based on their play at that very moment, rather than continually referencing a page of stats or blobs floating around a screen. Plus, the matches are run in real-time, meaning results aren't fixed before the whistle blows; it's about how you react as the game unfolds that can make or break the result. Do you sit back and try to defend a one-nil lead, or do you go all out for the second goal, but risk being hit on the counter-attack? These are the decisions that, for a manager, can make the difference between winning the league and getting the sack.
