This is quite honestly the worst Championship Manager game I have ever played. I am an avid Champ fan and have played every version since Champ 2, where Ibrahima Bakayoko was possibly the best player in the game (Unfortunately when he joined Everton in real life he was about as good as this game!).
The game feels comic like and is very unrealistic. I have lost many hours of my life playing Champ :( But I'm not going to waste a moment more playing this version. There is a demo of it, if you're a glutton for punishment at: [...]
Don't buy this game, buy Football Manager 2005, a game created by SI Games, who also created CM1, CM2, CM3 and CM4. Football Manager 2005 is more like CM4, and far more realistic than this awful offerring from Eidos.

So bad i've uninstalled it!!! This game is full of errors and the patch available online does nothing to rectify them.CM5 in my opinion has taken a great leap backwards and the good name of CM has been tarnished. Errors include:-
Defenders scoring own goals consistantly when under no pressure.
Winning games by huge margins....just doesn't happen!!
Teams bid for players and there's no way to accept the offer!!
Numerous other errors with this game also.
*******my advice is to buy Football Manager 2005********

Trying to get my money back. Most unsatisfactory. Did anyone really test this game before its release. I have not been tempted to review anything before, but I was so angry having wasted over 20 quid and about 4 hours of my life on a product that boasts a realism that its producers must know has not even been approached never mind achieved: that is so bug-ridden, even after the patch has been installed that it won't allow me to make substitutes at any time: that boasts a huge database and yet has no Player History at all is just an unadulterated con. Steer well clear!

I bought this game not knowing about the split of the people who made the previous champ man games which I thought were pretty good. I started the game as Man Utd (ps I am a 19 year old from MANCHESTER who DOES support Utd, not some cockney who just picks Utd coz they have money). Anyway, on my first game I noticed that it seemed to have been made by the same people who made the fictional football cartoon, the hurricanes. Penalties are more often missed than not, out of about 50 in a season you can expect to score about 2, also, the players such as Ruud Van Nistelrooy, apart from missing penalties, misses every 1 on 1, and sometimes, having a practically open net, will kick it straight to the keeper. Also it seems that as soon as a striker receives the ball, he'll turn and shoot regardless of where he is on the pitch, slow-paced half-way line shots are a regular occurance and add to the tedium, after this, a striker can get 10/10 having missed a penalty and maybe a million 1 on 1s.
Also, accidental handballs are not a bookable offence in real life, the referees on the game, who are all fictional and all foriegn (no foreign refs in the Prem last time I checked) hand out bookings like it's christmas, on average, half of my team is booked by the end of a match even though the tackling is set to normal. You can be winning 4-0 and someone like Ryan Giggs will go in 2 footed and get sent off, probably every second match you can expect this to happen, oh yeah, and your players will rarely get injured during a match, only 1 all seaon for me, in which I won the league despite 7 losses, with chelsea coming 2nd with 10 losses, very fake. Players will get injured however, but always in training.

Do not buy this game! If you download things, do not even waste time downloading a demo of it. Do not let people give you it. Disown people who gave you it for a present.
Good Points:
The interface is good. All of the screens (squad, transfers, news etc) have been painstakingly copied from the beta demo of FM2005.
Bad Points: (to many to mention, but here are a few humourous ones)
Alan Curbishley (Charlton) talking to a french football web site about a leeds player he wanted to buy... why would they care?
99.9% of throw ins level with the edge of the box result in a goal.
Crowd noise... louder cheers for bookings than goals
2D match engine, ball is too often obsured by player names.
Assistant sense, Les Ferdinand world class defensive midfielder.
Etc etc

I knew all about the break up between eidos and sports interactive and i was actually quite excited about the fact that we could actually have two fantastic football management sims to play.
I already have Football Manager 2005 which is fantastic but i was looking foward to this game as i thought it might offer something new.wrong.
The menu's are terribly laid out, the matchdays are very poor and the news is very ameteurish.
i played this game for 3 hours after i bought it and i am afraid those will be the only 3 hours i ever play of it.
i don't even rate this game on a par with Championship manager 2000/2001.
Shame, how did they get it so wrong.
