I would have liked a lot more depth to this but considering the time constraints, pretty decent job Liverpool_96.

Pre-load available now on Steam

Downloaded in time for its release on Friday, giving me the entire weekend to play it. Unfortunately I work lates (4pm til midnight) so I won't get all that long in the week to play it, even more so from November to January since I'll be working six days a night.

Needed getting used to some features, but all in all massive improvement over FM11. Seems I'll actually be able to get into a Liverpool save this time. Hate the fact that they've removed the feature where clicking on a players shirt takes you straight to the player instructions for that... now you have to click the player instructions button on the navigation bar. Plus one or two of the boxes were duplicated on the player overview thing. Guess it ran out of things it could display so it used the same one twice.

Liked the review Liverpool_96.

I would have liked a bit more of Liverpool_96's opinion on the new features and improvements. He's covered the information well but you could get the same information from SI themselves, whereas in a review, I'd like to read the reviewer's honest opinion on each section.

One area I didn't see covered very much at all, is the actual match engine. This can really make or break the game if tweaks have been made and they don't quite offer the same realism as previous years. I've read a few tweaks have been made to the match engine and would have liked to see if these changes have made any impact on the game.

Regardless of this, it was very informative and covered the areas well enough and done well considering the time constraints. Just would have liked a bit more personality in it. I don't mean to come across as negative as I wouldn't have been able to do much better myself.

Danger It's fine; constructive criticism is appreciated, and yours is certainly valid. Looking to do better next year. Perhaps Ramzi can elaborate here on what you mentioned.

To be completely honest with you Danger, I didn't notice many changes with the match engine, which isn't a bad thing. I mentioned how the game runs faster and when I said that I meant particularly concerning the match engine. Thanks for the constructive criticism though, it's appricieted. Also I tried to give my opinion on as many things as I could. anything inparticular you'd like my opinion on just now?
