Summary: As the title says, this game may not contain flashy graphics, but it hooked me after I got through the tutorials. And its level of authenticity is astounding and almost at par with FIFA. I say almost as most of the players' and managers' pictures are absent.
Excerpt: I brought this product a while a go now and have found problems on loading it. Would have preferred it for an "off line"" option. Having said that, the graphic are great and will take a little time in getting used to the game itself.
One of the few game series that never fails to impress

Excerpt: I have been a fan of the series since the early versions dating back to 2002. When I look back, the game has gone through a tremendous improvement. But even back in the days when the match day was represented by a bunch of dots moving around the screen the game was just as addictive as it is today.
Pros: Endless gaming experience, many areas improved, better design and gameplay
Cons: Can consume too much time, Match Day experience still has many faults
FM2013 - great game that takes up lots of your time!

Excerpt: Football manager 2012 was the first game I played in the Football Manager series, and I loved it. Football Manager 2013 is even better - it has been improved in many different aspects. I didnt play FM2012 that much however, so I can't comment on every single aspect that has changed.
Pros: can play for hours without getting bored
Cons: occasionally crashes/closes without warning, meaning i have to redo matches
Excerpt: I remember first reading that SEGA and Sports Interactive were going to release another instalment of the Football Manager series for the 2012-13 football season. I wasn’t overly excited but I just knew deep down I wouldn’t be able to resist buying it.
Pros: Lose yourself in the world of football .
Cons: Far too addictive, many a late night spent playing when i should be in bed .
Excerpt: This game is well put together, in my opinion. Everything from the gameplay, to the graphics and soundtrack, it's a very interesting and exciting game--the best coaching game on the market, in my opinion.
Pros: Stimulates your brain and makes you think . You feel like an actual football manager
Cons: It can become mundane at times . It can use additional features
Summary: I like to get my money's worth out of games, and as a result this is the first FM game I've had since FM08. The game is slick, looks great, and has a huge amount of detail about yours and other teams.
