Excerpt: A new football season, and already things are looking challenging for the even the most seasoned of Football Manager fans. Ronaldo has finally jumped ship to Madrid for a world record transfer fee, Liverpool have lost their midfield maestro, Xabi Alonso, Arsenal sold two of their best players to rivals Manchester City, and Fulham finally solved their left wing problem with the astute signing of Damien Duff.
Conclusion: So, is Football Manager 2010 still the best football management game this year? Even though I haven’t got the chance to play the new FIFA Manager, I would risk an “YES!” Championship Manager 2010 did prove to be a really pleasant surprise and an incredibly complex game and it certainly won the hearts of many virtual managers, but Football Manager 2010 is still the most complex, challenging and rewarding, wonderful and addictive management game on the market.
Conclusion: In short FM2010 isn’t an evolutionary step in the series. Instead it’s merely an incredibly well produced update. SI has lovingly polished the FM bodywork, added some spoilers, alloys and a couple of PS3s in the passenger seats, but underneath it’s the same engine. Luckily under the hood everything is in full working order; for detail and realism FM2010 is - as usual - in a league of its own.
Excerpt: Derrière Football Manager pousse L'Entraîneur , qui a d'ailleurs frappé un grand coup cette saison. Mais aussi un LFP Manager plus abordable qui ne cesse de s'enrichir. L'an dernier, Football Manager a sorti de derrière les fagots un moteur 3D (enfin !) mais a peu évolué en dehors de cela. Le passage à la 3D étant fait, le rouleau compresseur reprend sa route.
