Conclusion: Obviously being on the PSP the data files are not as large as the PC version but this is still a pretty fine effort. Detailed foreign squads so you can pick up some real bargains to help with those promotion pushes from the lower leagues. Much better than 07 where each game takes you a good 10 minutes. Passes a lot of time!
Summary: I think this is a very good game. There are a number of leagues that can be played all round the world and there are also various mission type scenarios such as avoiding relegation, gaining promotion and winning a European trophy. So there is certainly a good amount of variety. The game allows you to see the game played out on a 2D pitch which I liked.
Summary: I have been playing CM PSP for several months now and despite some very frustrating niggles I have to say the game is involving, challenging and a fantastic buy. Some people seem to find it hard to take that you don't pick the game up and be instantly successful even though they chose chelsea and bought Thierry Henry. I for one would be disappointed if you could.
Champ Man PSP - ignore all other reviews and read this one

Summary: Please do not let these negative reviews put you off buying Champ Man on PSP. If you expect to take over a team and win every game 3-0 straight away you surely arent someone who likes a challenging game are you? Which is what Champ Man on the PSP is... I have found that once you tinker with your sqaud (preferably adding one or two decent strikers, of which there are loads) and put your own mark on your club then the results seem to follow.
If you like Champ Manager 3 Season 01-02 you'll like this

Summary: I'll get straight to the point. As you'll see by this review's title, if you've ever played the Season 01-02 incarnation of Sports Interactive's Championship Manager series on PC then you'll probably enjoy this game. The reason? Gusto Games have blatantly ripped the guts out of 01-02, even improving on them in some areas, and have more or less successfully transplanted them into Sony's sleek black handheld.
Summary: I was actually quite impressed with this adaptation for the PSP. Many reviewers try to dissuade people from buying Championship Manager, and I do agree that when it comes to the PC version, Football Manager simply cannot be beaten. However, this game is easy to navigate, enjoyable to play and would provide the perfect distraction for any long journey or trip.
