Yet Another Unfinished Game From Sports Interactive
Jason W. Elder, Amazon
21 November 2013
Summary: The game was released unfinished. It seems that Sports Interactive have zero respect for their customers, and seem to figure that since they're the only real game in this genre, they can release beta code and everyone will just have to wait for them to patch it. This is the 3rd year running that they've done this... and each year their PR department becomes increasingly rude and arrogant in the manner they deal with unhappy customers.
Would not recommend it. Steam sucks, not worth the headache.

Summary: Steam sucks. It's clunky and full of bugs. And it's a nightmare if you want to play the game on another computer. I used to love FM. But I will never play it again. I hate the the FM developers for selling out.
Summary: I don't know why they do it but every now and then SI games release a version of Football Manager and they seem to crank up the difficulty to ridiculous extremes. Whether this is to appease the die-hard fans or they're simply reckless with their coding I'm not sure, but what I do know is that this year's edition is a frustrating mess of a game.
Summary: that was the last time I've bought a FM series game. It's irritating, not real, and almost wanted to throw my laptop through the window. What ever you do, you will lose, doesn't matter what tactics you are yousing, what players you got, if computer want, you will lose with last team for 3or more goals, with tragic morale level. Almost feeling you are playing against Bayern Monachium in Scarborough shirts. NEVER AGAIN!
Summary: I was addicted to Championship Manager 01/02. for many years, wasting days at a time trying to get my team glory. I even downloaded the updates to the game, in order to keep the same format. Decided to upgrade and bought the new Football Manger 2014. What a travesty! Ridiculously long loading times, and 2-3 hours in just setting the whole thing up, creating the steam account etc. Once I started playing, I just thought no no no.
Summary: I've been playing this sim for over 12 years now. Every year has had me hooked. This game? Not so much, I've actually barely played it since I bought it on release date. It's just dreadful. An illogical mess. It's stopped being fun and I sincerely doubt that I will bother with 15. They've almost certainly lost a customer for life. I've actually tried playing FM recently. It's still a buggy mess. Buy 12 or 13. Just don't not buy this game.
Summary: Ordered this online as i was a away at the time , when it finally arrived after trying to download it it became evident it would not work , there were problems being able to use the code in Singapore which is where i was at the time. a friend also had the same problems and upon emailing amazon and explaining the situation he got a full refund , therefore i did the same and recieved no refund.
