LMA Manager are football (soccer) management games which are published by Codemasters. It is one of the only football management games to be made for consoles, where as Football Manager or Championship Manager are developed for the PC. It also has a focus on a 3D Match Engine, not seen in many other football management sims. The series began on the PlayStation with LMA Manager in late 1999 and was then followed by LMA Manager 2001, also on the PlayStation, a year later. LMA Manager 2002 was the final game in the series on the original PlayStation. The PlayStation 2 version of the game was released in April 2002. The step up from the PS1 to the PS2 was huge with the expansion of the leagues and a more realistic match engine. Next was LMA Manager 2003, the first game in the series to be released on the Xbox. This game is known by many fans as the best in the series. LMA Manager 2004 was released in March 2004. The game brought a new look to the menu over the last two games. LMA Manager 2005 was released later that year in October. It included three new leagues and featured a mid season roster update via the PlayStation online service and Xbox Live. It was also the first game in the season to have the license to some of the leagues (Football League and the La Liga). LMA Manager 2006 was released on the PS2 and Xbox in November 2005. It was the last game in the series to appear on the original Xbox. The game sported a new look, a new transfer market system, a custom 3D manager you could create and some new leagues avalible in France and Germany. LMA Manager was released on three platforms, the PS2, PC and Xbox 360. The game featured some slight improvements over 2006. To this date, it is the last game in the series. Codemaster has said it is not making any more LMA titles until future notice. The series may still continue but for now it is on hold.
