Football Manager 2008 User Reviews
Football Manager 2008. The newest in the long running CM/FM series, the fourth since the Eidos/Sports Interactive split. A quick recap of my thoughts on previous games: FM05 - a fantastic game, played it for hours on end, I think this game defined SI were superior to Eidos. FM06 - the greatest FM game. It topped FM05 and I think I had near as much enjoyment from this game as I did from earlier versions (when it was Championship Manager). After this game, I expected huge things from FM07. FM07 - Unfortunately, this game was a humoungous dissapointment to me. It was glitchy, full of bugs, I f...
~ Nice, clean looking new skin that's much easier on the eye.
~ Heap loads of new and improved features, including International management.
~ The shear addictiveness of this game. I can play it for hours on end.
~ Pre-Patch Match engine had many bugs.
~ Transfer market needs to be changed, players asking prices are too high.
~ Still no full licensing, so downloaded graphics are needed.
My first thoughts on the game were a bit mixed. I was confused by the many different new features the game contained. But after I got the feel for the game, I started to like it more and more. I got the idea of the new features, and started to discover more about the game. There are many new aspects to the game. Internation management is one of the improved features of the game, you are now given more control over your nation, which makes the game feel more real than ever.
The game also has a new and improved skin. It gives the game a fresh, bright look, which is much easier on the eye than...
Without a doubt SI have come back and once again produced by far the best management simulation going, but is it a step in the right direction? In my honest opinion, I think it is. The new game is much more advanced and detailed than ever before, letting you control every single aspect of the club ranging from financial control to scouting specific competitions or regions.
One thing that really let Football Manager down upon release was it's original match engine. The match engine was full of bugs and was hardly enjoyable to play as it would have you pulling your hair out. These bugs includ...
I have to say, when I first bought the game I was very disappointed. There were a lot of bugs in the game with the most obvious being that your players to do close down and this allowing to let the opposition have a pop at goal.
When the first patch came out I was pleased as it had cleared all apparent bugs that I could see. I actually managed to get a good game going and playing regularly. However, I found it very difficult because in this game you have to think a lot more about the tactics you play against different opponents and also individual tactics for players. This patch was however ...
SI have been most successful in the past years when it comes to Football Manager. Every game has been an improvement and kept people glued to the screen for literally days. It still is that way although I heard people complaining that they had a hard time getting into it. Personally I think that "not getting into it" is a consequence of the improved match engine. The game has become to hard. You cannot raise money, buy the best players and sit back while your team keeps kicking butt. Tactics need to fit your players qualities, and the Computer AI finds ways around your tactic, so you need t...
This game is a must buy for any football fanatic! Even if you're not the biggest fan of football this game could still be worth a look if you like management sims due to the in depth and total control you have over everything.
The game works very much like every other game in the series. You start out as a rookie manager with no experience, either at a club or nation of your choice, or unemployed. Your goal is to lead that team to win as many competitions as possible!
You will have a variety of tools at your disposal to maximise your chances of success. These are your tactics, your training, ...
