Summary: DO NOT BUY A SECOND HAND VERSION OF THIS GAME. This game has to be 'activated' online to actually work. This is done with a program called steam, which you will have to download and register on. If the unique 'code' for the game has been used to register it on steam for another user (ie: second hand copys) then YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REGISTER THIS GAME. This basically means that ANY used version of this game is worthless unless you are a computer hacker !
Summary: Okay, so I bought a copy of FM2012 off of Amazon from AlexBoyer93. He said the copy was "as good as new". Then when I went to install and play the game Steam pops up and asks for the Steam Activation Key for the game. The activation key on the product has already been registered, I assume by the previous owner. Is there a way around this? If there isn't this AlexBoyer93 guy, and probably many others like him, is selling games on Amazon that can't be played.
Don't buy second hand football manager games they won't work!

Summary: Don't make the same mistake as us. We bought this game complete with installation code etc but as its run through 'steam' it won't let you register it as its already registered to a previous owner.
Summary: I have purchased the game every year but this one is by far the worst. Who wants to mess around with press conferences etc, the game is called FOOTBALL MANAGER! Since loading steam it has slowed my computer down and it keeps updating when logging on off which takes time. I have now removed steam and the game is in the bin.
Summary: I'm not sure if im supposed to buy a new copy.. but stream doesnt let me play this since it was replaced with manager 2013. It always says 'game unavailable at this time'. So OK right, I spend £30 on a game and IT decides that I cant play it. Now, im not a big gamer. This is the Only game I own and I have played in one season... exactly one season. I would like to begin my second season as manager of HULL CITY but.. I cant.
