2.0 out of 5 stars Riddled with bugs, 27 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Football Manager 2008 (PC/Mac) (Video Game)
It's a shame that such a good game has been ruined by bugs. Clearly SI games were just in too much of a hurry to rush this out and they neglected to run all the proper tests, because some of the problems in this game are simply impossible to miss.

Take, for example, the fact that the game occasionally just refuses to run when you click the icon. This isn't all that bad really, because simply trying a few more times will yield results, however, there are far more ridiculous problems. How about the fact that every now and again you will randomly concede six goals in twenty minutes, often because your defenders pass to the opposition, or simply refuse to tackle them, allowing them to waltz through to your penalty box and finish.

These are all pretty bad, but the worst has to be what happened to me in my thrid season. Well, I say my third season, but my third season didn't actually start.

The cups, the other leagues in other countries, and even the reserves league ran fine, but my league (the SPL) simply refused to start. I'm now in November, and I've only played five games, three of which were in the champions league.

This is simply unacceptable, after paying £25 I certainly didn't expect a half-finished job.

Even worse is the fact that the game itself is actually brilliant, which really rubs salt in the wounds. One can't help but wonder just how good it could have been had they waited a month and sorted it out.
