I haven't really got heavily into any of the FM series for a good few years now but buy them as they still contain enough interest for me to feel it is worthwhile.

My personal opinion is don't buy the game when it is first released unless it is at a very good discount as year after year the games are released with quite a few bugs that eventually get ironed out and updates applied but not normally until February/March.

The game in itself seems conflicted, on the one hand they are trying to make FMC an easier version but it is a bit too gimmicky for me and too much like an 'arcade version' which isn't what FM for me is all about.

The full version is far too bloated and the developers seem so desperate to add more and more to the game so they can advertise it as '900 new features' and use that as a selling point that I feel they have really started to have trouble with seeing the 'wood for the trees'.

I think the game in itself is ok, not great but with the updates and if you can get it at a good price it is worth a purchase.

I personally feel that they need to start to prioritise the areas that they want to focus on and that 'less is more' when it comes to this game and the myriad options you have with it and the sometimes crazy affect these decisions can have on your players and then your results can really drive you crazy.

Bought this and arrived in time and OK condition only issue is that it uses Steam to install on your PC and requires a product code,now when this is entered Steam recognised that the code had already been activated on another device (previous owner) and would not continue to install until this was released. Bit of a nightmare and still haven't got it instilled my advice is to stay clear of second hand and by new. No hassle that way

its a great game , but don't make the mistake i made, buy new . used games will not work on any computer as steam will not accept an activation code that has been used previously. so returned used version bought new and the game is great to play loose hours of your day on it.

Not very happy as this game would not work due to being already registered with another steam account!
I received a refund for the purchase price & postage cost , but I'm still out of pocket! because of the return cost and under the consumer law, I'm supposed to be refunded for the return cost aswell!!!!

I buy the FM series every other year or so. I then easily waste away literally hundreds of hours taking my beloved Newcastle United to glory.

It's not a perfect game by any means. The match simulator produces some weird things occasionally, and tactical tweaking doesn't seem to do all that much. Most of all, I found the interface to be overcomplicated and confusing. This makes finding the right page can often be a bit of a chore as you search each of the options and tabs you think it may be under.

Nevertheless, the game is as addicting as ever. "Just one more game" more often than not evolves into an entire evening rooted to my couch seeing if I can just about grind out the next result. For pure replay-value, this game and its series remains a masterpiece.

Coming from a man who has bought and mo doubt will buy fm for many more years. This is easily the worse for years. They have changed things they didn't need to. And the match engine has regressed. The match engine mow is such an important part of the game. I thought fm 13 they really did well, hopefully 15 will be a significant improvement.

A great game and still relevant today which makes it great. Easy to use interface and the gameplay is really good. Would highly recommend to fm veterans and beginners alike

It is ok !! a LOT more deeper thinking to do and you will be fed up with the incessant Press interviews as it will make you feel that you want the press interviews out of the game !!! Rather play the FM05 !!

It is Football Manager, the best football manager game ever. Every year they somehow get even better. Buy it. Join the addiction.

You can spend weeks playing this and it zooms by because you get so involved.
