Please do not buy this game,
This review is from: Football Manager 2012 (PC/Mac DVD) (DVD-ROM)
It is a great game, as you would expect, BUT...
For some unfathomable reason, the game's makers have made it so the game is unplayable, but you only find this out after you buy it.
1. You cannot just pay for, load and play the game, oh no. You have to also subscribe to something called STEAM, and you need a permanent online connection to STEAM to be able to play the game. That means that if you find yourself somewhere where you don't have an online facility, you cannot play FM2012 unless you previously opted for a temporary offline facility. Complex. Madness.
2. After a few weeks of playing you may well, like me, receive a message saying "this is not an official copy, you cannot play anymore unless...." Suffice to say the recommended action is impossible - it asks you to uninstall software which you haven't got anyway!
Why they have done all this is beyond me, but it is so sad given that the game is so good. Trying to get customer support is just a pain - if they do eventually respond to your query, they will invariably take 2 days and then answer a different question and refer you to the online solutions that you already tried and failed, very, very 2011!
