Games featuring team management

Some games - especially strategy games involving tactical movement and sports management games - task the player with the management of a team or squad composed by different characters. As the manager, you can usually hire new team members, equip each character with various items, choose which of them will be on the field. Squad management is heavily featured in Syndicate, the X-COM series, the Jagged Alliance series. Team management is a fundamental part of every team sports management game.
