More playable today than most 1997 games, but CM 01/02 is simply a better text-based CM

  • Excerpt: One of the more minor points of interest about the Championship Manager series of football management simulation games is that more than once the final entry in one generation of releases has been a much better game than the first in the next generation. For example, CM 01/02, the final of the classic "text only" versions, is a far more satisfying experience than the flawed CM4 which kicked off the "cautiously graphical" era.

  • Excerpt: This particular CM game is my favourite because it is just that, a game. The newer ones have gotten so much more in depth and technical it seemed more of a chore than a game, and when you're Man Utd, fielding your best team, playing some non league team and you lose 2-0 at home... something has to be wrong! And it wasn't with my managing! Anyway Cm 97/98. Quite simply the most addictive game ever.
  • Cons: "An old game"

  • Excerpt: Firstly I am sorry for putting this opinion in this category when I am actually going to talk about Championship manager 00/01, for some strange reason I cannot write an opinion about it in the championship manager 00/01 part but now that I have explained myself.... This game offers a huge in depth study of how to be a football manager, even though this will never happen to the majority of us some of us beloved football fans like to dream of managing our favorite team...

  • Excerpt: championship manager 97/98 is arguably the best manager game ever! Whilst Eidos are still trying to improve it, make it more realistic and add better features, i believe that they will go no better than champ manager97/98. The playability is great and it is simple to use without making win to easy. There is always more to do in ht egame and you are never guaranteed to win week in, weel out.

  • Excerpt: This is the beginning of the tremendous series of Championship manager game produced by Eidos. At the time of release, this game was the best football management game ever made. It had up to date players, a great transfer system and the thing people could not get over was the data editor. What a clever thing to do by Eidos because everyone was changing players to their new clubs on the game as it happened in real life, which meant that the game was never out of date!

  • Excerpt: Best game i ever bought for my pc!!! Best Footie Management game ever!!! If like me, you have a fairly slowish pc, and cannot run all the fancy 3D graphics of Half Life and Quake III and all that lot, and you are looking for VERY addictive Football Management game, that requires no fancy pc whatsoever, then this is the game for you. Take control of any team in a host of European Leagues, Buy, Sell, Trade all the Top Players from around the world.

  • Excerpt: Although this game is over 3 year old it is still an excellent game. Football management games do not really need super graphics. Even so, the graphics are pretty good. When you choose the option to watch the match instead of just reading the stats and the action minute by minute. One downside is that the players seem to be very stupid. Also it is also very easy to 'cheat' and make loads of money.
