Soccer Manager demo takes field

Free trial of soccer coaching comes in two flavors for PC, Mac--bare-bones "vanilla" sample and multiple league "strawberry."


Gamers who are questioning the decisions of club managers in the English Premiere League can now take their turns running a soccer team, at least on a virtual circuit. The demo for Soccer Manager 2007 (known as Football Manager 2007 in Europe) is now available for PCs and Macs. Publisher Sega is delivering the demo in a pair of options, a "vanilla" version that is 80MB in size and includes only the English League and no kits, photos, or sounds, and a "strawberry" version (PC edition available from GameSpot) that is 260MB in size and features more leagues, player photos, audio, and enhanced graphics. The full retail game is scheduled to be released later this month.
