Great game verging on excellent.

Excerpt: Overall this game, as expected, is not as well developed as the PC version, but it still is an amazingly realistic game to play. The squads,tactics,media mind games and general buzz about the game second to none (bar its bigger brother, the PC version).
Excerpt: Being a former Championship manager fan and a huge footballer player myself, Ive always enjoyed the managerial game, however it is only in the past year in which I have swapped my allegiances from Championship manager to football manager and honestly, its the best thing I have done.
Excerpt: -Introduction- Having spent more time playing Football Manager on the good ol' fashioned PC than was probably good for my own health, I was both surprised and intrigued at Sports Interative's (SI) decision to port it over to the PSP. Surprised but not worried.
Pros: Addictive, Easy to understand, Fast, Portable, Huge life span (you can just keep on playing ! )
Cons: Sound (or rather lack of it), sometimes a little too easy
Summary: I think the other reviewers have been very harsh. This is never going to be a PC beater, the whole aspect of the game is its for a portable and so meant to played in short chunks and not hours and hours at a time like the pc version. All I can say is that i've been addicted.
Summary: Marc, thanks for posting your update on Amazon. However, could you answer me a couple of questions which I think have seriously flawed the Handheld games. First of all, will we have bank balances this time rather than just a transfer budget?
Conclusion: i bought this game when it came out and it's highly addictive, but can be too easy for example is it realistic for morecambe to get in the premiership? dont think so hopefully football manger 08 will be harder and more challenging. other than that good game and worth the money
Conclusion: What a great game! If you like management simulators, you wont find another better than this. Sure, the PC version/PS2 versions are better, but as a portable commuterable game theres nothing better.
Conclusion: This game isn't as good as the pc version but then what do you expect...it's a handheld! I think it's a really good compelling game that will have you really addicted! My only slight problem is theres no online play and no highlights, but other than that its great!
Conclusion: I have played 2 other managerial games in the past, both were Championship Manager games and if i was to compare this game to those then i would have to say that i am slightly dissapointed but it is a good game still, it just doesnt have as much indepth detail(eg.no pitch on matchdays, less transfer...
Conclusion: I love this game although having never played a previous football management game i had nothing to compare it too. However i find it a little strange that you cant switch countries, for example manage Barcelona and then apply for the job of Liverpool.
