Game Features

Most sports games concentrate on simulating actual matches, but many also include a number of management functions as well—the challenges of managing a team or an athlete’s career. A few sports games implement only this aspect of the sport and don’t allow the player to control individual athletes in matches. Occasionally called manager games, these are particularly popular in Europe.
