irishjack, amazon.co.uk
8 February 2010
  • Summary: This is simply the best, detailed but not overly complex, more recent CM are dumb and shallow and other manager sims are either statistically weak or overly forcussed on mundane minutae. Get this or 00/01 to see what computer gming use to about when games were built with love and care.

SKIBINSKI DAVID, amazon.co.uk
23 January 2004

Pick the team, choose the tactics, change training, choose your backroom staff, allocate your scouts, buy players, sell players, fine players, negociate contracts, invest money on youth, build an academy, manage the reserve team, expand the stadium, apply for vacant managerial positions, resign,...

Even Better Than The Real Thing

stoffy, Ciao
7 September 2001
  • Excerpt: "Championship Manager is one of the best selling computer games ever on any format. A football management simulation, the secret of its success is the pure depth of the statistics that it contains as well as its incredible addictiveness. Once you start guiding Nuneaton Borough to the dizzy heights of 17th in the Nationwide Conference League, you'll know what I mean... A number of people may play the game, although it is probably best played alone. ...
  • Pros: realistic and addictive
  • Cons: may be too complex for some

Football for Amatures

Ste_cuppe..., Ciao
5 August 2001
  • Excerpt: "Championship Manager 99/00 is a great game. I myself am not a huge fan of football but love the game all the same. It is less about football and more about tactical decisions like which players to buy and sell and how hard you can train your team without injuring them. The matches are presented as a commentary and you decide whether or not to change tactics or make substitutions. You can chose which team to manage from a range of countries including ...
  • Pros: Great game that you can play forever
  • Cons: Too similar to the last one

  • Excerpt: "...first game I bought was Championship Manager 93. For nearly a year I played this game, day in, day out until Championship Manager 94 came out. Shortly after the release of this game came Championship Manager Italia, was it ever going to stop?. Eventually I got rid of my Amiga, moving on to consoles. I bought LMA manager and Premier Manager 99 for my Playstation but neither could come anywhere near the Championship Manager games. Because of this ...
  • Pros: Easily the best football management simulation available .
  • Cons: Maybe it goes a bit too in depth .

This new release keeps the same principles and setup of its predecessors with its uncluttered and simple layout but the latest players and updates. For the unkonwn of this series you will need to know the game requires ...

CM 00 01

chickenbr..., Ciao
16 June 2001
  • Excerpt: "This game is the bees knees. Its well entertaining and has kept me playing on and off since its release. What makes this game superior to others is its vast detail to squad statistics and personality. The game for all its plus points does have several down sides. You have to be a very patient person for this game as it can take days to complete a season and most of that time will be spent staring at the screen or entertaining yourself waiting for ...
  • Pros: Vast database and realistic player statistics, INternet play and patches
  • Cons: Takes an age to play and can be a little to easy at times .
