5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game, possibly the best of its kind 5 Jun 2007
By Owzat
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am always sceptical about management games having played quite a few over the years. Often they can be too easy, sometimes too hard but this gets the balance right. I have found it very hard to win without being offputting, it took many attempts before I managed to win the Premiership in my first season in charge. I've got off to many good starts but often the opposition are unrelenting and I fade. I've won the Champions League and cups many more times, maybe the Champions League is too easy as I now consider not reaching the final a failure.

PROs

- don't need to read up how to play
- easy to use menus
- easy to compare players
- realistic transfer market, most players can be signed for a price
- not easy to win the league first time of asking or thereafter
- plenty of things to do throughout the season even when the transfer window is closed
- one or two too many loopholes making it easy if you know how
- some good stats available including manager profile

CONs

- it can be a tad hard to win the league even if your team is clearly the best
- you can lose games for no apparent reason
- strikers miss the target far too much
- can take a long time to complete a season
- big problem with training, do it yourself and players are unfit
- working through e-mails can take too long
- at times players take too long considering offers

And tips for people who want a little edge -

- go into manager options and set the assistant to take training or your players will be unfit and injured all season

- offer players to clubs rather than transfer list them, otherwise you will not sell players quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars New and good 7 Jun 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am new to the relm of championship manager as i hav previously bought lma manager and total club manager.The games layout is clear and good and so is the match engine.Also the teams i am west ham and i am in my 3rd season, in the first i came 7th in the premership and fa cup runner up, my second season 5th fa cup runner up again but winner of the uefa cup, then in my 3rd season i signed thierry henry on free transfer from arensenal and then went on to do the quadruple (premiership,uefa cup, fa cup and the leauge cup) Now i have just signed david trezuget and michael owen on free transfer. I advise anyone who wants a througly enjoyable manger game to run down to the shops and buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Annoyingly MORE realistic 22 May 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In the previous versions of this game, you could get away with being a bit of a football numpty, and generally flying by the seat of your pants.

No more, I'm afraid. It's a harsh reality this time! Players get cheesed off more easily, you get the sack (even if you've won the last few games), and your "Board" stop you making bargin buys if they don't think it's right (well, okay, a bargin in your eyes might not actually be that good, considering the player is 36 and want's fat bonuses).

So, lots more fun to be had managing Yeovil and trying to work your way up through the leagues. For a laugh you can take your kids straight out the Youth Acadamy and put them in the first team and make them play 90 mins - the results are worth the risk for entertainment !!

So, much better, but the only downside is that there are soooo many options for training and tactics during a game. Sometimes you just get so peeved and setting them you put the default on (and enevitable get whipped!!). AND, you have to be interviewed for any jobs you apply for - and if they don't like your answer - they don't give you the flippin' job!!

Good points? Shouting abuse at players during the game - choosing a suitably inappropriate analysis for the team talk at the end of the game - and, of course, trying to buy some dodgy Bucharest player for peanuts (everyone want's to play for Dagenham & Redbridge, don't they?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Time has told! 24 Mar 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
On first impressions of this game, my opinion over whether Eidos could release a console version of the best football sim in history, was vey much a big NO, NO!

Even at first notice, the lines under teams and players, and generally the small area which all the information could be crammed, was almost enough to put the CD back in the box and take it back to the shop...

But alas, once you play a few games and get yourself a nice formation, which I have done, this game is loads of fun... ok, all be it with a limited game engine, the speed between matches one of the few advantages,

you will be playing this for hours on end... echoes of CM97/98 flood back with this addition to the greatest game on earth.

Worth a look...
