Summary: Its a five star game for all you football fans, it is amazing because it combines the brain of the mastermind champion and the discipline of a man in the SAS. I thought it was brilliant because once you get a good save you cant let go of it. if you like championship manager this is just a simplified more playable version.
Summary: This game is simply just Quality. You either love it or you hate it. Personally, i love it. You can shape and mould your own team from relegation battlers to European Championship contenders. I am currently on season 2022/2023 and i have been in charge of Celtic and have turned them into European Champions for five years on the trot. Buy this game and give it a go!!!
Summary: Initially this game might seem a bit of a turn off. There are tons of options and activities for you to do, so it will take some time before you know exactly what's going on. Apart from that though, the game is sheer brilliance, and really does either make you scream in triumph or kick the TV over in frustration, as I'd imagine what football management is like as well.
Summary: The game is great. I never touched a football managment game before and I was really amazed. Very easy handling, lots of options and - what is probably the best about it - a great match engine. You can watch your team play in TV style which I think beats all the other games in this genre. According to my girlfriend I am spending way to much time on it though ... Of course there are a few problems too. Depending on your interest it still may not be the game for you.
Summary: Bought the original on PSone - didn't like it. It was too difficult to see why your Team had won or lost and thus difficult to make any educated decisions other than buying the best players your could. This PS2 incarnation is different. Whilst the match playing is still below-par in terms of graphics (as with most management games), it's a big improvement over PSone.
Summary: I have played many football management games and this one excels them all. The graphics are superb but it is the options available that seperates it from any rival management games. The formations and tactics are immensely detailed and actually correspond with the game! The only problem, and it is only a small glitch, and that is it is quite awkward to move around and you end up scouting Ronald Deboer rather than continuing with the match.
Summary: Finally, The CM series has been defeated. I was hesitant before I bought LMA Manager. There it was surronded by classics like Metal Gear Solid 2 and FIFA 2002 and I splashed out on a management sim. I was kicking my self on the way home but when I was played it, I was fascinated. It is absolutely amazing. CM3 tired old formula has been defeated by brilliant graphics and initiative.
Summary: Well, this is what PS2 footy fans have been waiting for but lets get one thing straight. Its not Champ Manager and isnt meant to be. I actually prefer it to Champ Manager in many ways. The managerial side is excellent with so many factors to control. Management is realistic in that great players will never join a crap team and you must work within your budgets. Good training and tactics count for all. The tansfer system is good too.
Summary: Absolutely Fantastic, Can't get enough. Will probably be lossing the girlfriend due to the amount of time I spend on it not her. The management struggle, having limited wage resources and having to get a strong squad. Looks good while playing, frustrating, annoying and brilliant.
Summary: Horrible horrible game, if you have played championship manager. It is very easy and no fun with graphics that really don't add anything. Championship manager is the football manager simulation, all others are Perkin Warbeck's to it. Why oh why don;t they do the decent thing and give us Ps2 owners the king CHAMPIONSHIP MANAGER.
