Summary: My last Football Manager was the 2008 version so I had not yet experienced the 3D match engine, so that was a nice update. But the real enjoyment comes from the updated Tactics Creator that enables a player to easily create tactics specific to the team they have and can adjust with the old slider method to perfect the tactics of individual players. Very enjoyable game with many different possibilities for success and failure.
Summary: The Good Quick tactics are extremely useful - so nice to not have to keep going to the tactics screen every time you want to tweak something while in a match! Love the way you can select players style within their position now - for example it's really quick to tell your midfielders to be "ball winner", "support", "attack" etc. Very intuitive and works well. Better than dragging arrows around. The 3D match engine works very well.
Summary: Warning - This game is addictive. If you have owned previous installments in this title, it will take you time to get used to the "improvements" in this year's edition. Other than that, it is the same game, but you do have a bit more tactical control and the addition of the "touchline instructions" allows you to change tactics in game without going to the Tactics screen. This is a highly involved simulation style game.
Summary: Quality...performance from the lads. To be honest with you the this is the best yet, and i think its only going to get better. Not too sure about the STEAM start engine..as it occasionally has some glitches. But the game its self is quality. Its addictiveness is crazy!! I'm already having problem with the wife coz i'd rather be awake at night leading Spurs onto championsleague Glory then hang out with her. Effen Quality!!
Summary: I was addicted to the 2009 version of this game, and this one is no different. There are a couple of motable improvements: - Touchline instructions: You can now issue adhoc instructions without going to the tactics panel, and the options are galore. You can command your team to Stand off opponents, Pump ball into box, take more risks and so on. This is closer to what an actual manager would do, throwing in real time instructions to the player.
Summary: You may find more than one football manager games, but by far this one is the best of all. After playing all the demos for Football manager 2010, fifa manager and Championship manager there is no discussion on how great, stable and complex this game is, and how far back their competitors are. The 3d engine runs good, even in a laptop XPS m1330 with a NVidia GeForce 8400M GS which has an acceptable graphic card.
Summary: Another edition of Football Manager and another great game. It has so much depth it is unbelievable. The only aspect that you should be aware is that you need a good CPU engine as it will not run in old machines.
