Let’s Play: Lords of Football

by on April 5, 2013

It’s been coming a while now, but the game that appears to be part Football Management and part Life Sim is finally upon us.

While our review is a little way off yet (it’s a deep looking game, with a lot of features and mechanics) we thought we’d bring you something to look at for launch day, to at least help you decide if the game is for you, or not.

So join me as I start my career as a potential Lord of Football, of course being a local boy I picked Southampton, before getting my team practising their passing, then setting them loose on the town for the night. Match day was next, and despite going 1-0 down, I brought it back to 1-1 with some fortuitous (if comedic) goalkeeping blunders. For those wondering, whilst the video ends at half time, I actually won 5-2, but had two men sent off. So there’s some seriously crazy variables going on in that match engine.

Lords of Football is available now for Windows PC via Steam for £21.24.

    heavy breathing in the video is extremely annoying

    Cheers for the video, not seen much coverage of this game and I was really looking forward to seeing it before deciding whether to buy it or not. Also, for the record, I don’t really hear any heavy breathing but, then again, I was watching the video and listening to the information, not pressing my ear to the speaker so I could pretend to be important on the internet by finding something minuscule to complain about.

    To be honest Anton, it was the first thing I noticed, as it’s what you hear before he actually says anything at the beginning of the video iirc. Just needs to move his mic away from the front of his face. Not a big deal, the video was still good and informative.

      For the record, this isn’t the first time I’ve recorded audio commentary for a video, so mic position isn’t actually an issue 🙂

      But two things of note: I’m recovering from a chest infection (which explains why I’m perhaps breathing heavier than normal) but really wanted to get some coverage up for this game for our audience, as nobody else seems to be bothering with it. We pride ourselves on covering all games, not just the triple-A ones. Secondly, it was recorded “live”, as I wanted it to really be a reaction video to the first time I played it, which explains why I’m not talking over every single second, and thus there are moments where I’m not talking and just listening to the voiceover instructions, which may also exaggerate the silence.

      Appreciate the notes, though – always looking to improve on anything we do. Normally our let’s play videos tend to be 2 people, too.
