Summary: Anyone considering buying this game should realise that it is not the old Championship Manager that we all know and love. If you want the latest version on the classic CM game you need to buy FOOTBALL MANAGER which is published by Sega. The confusion comes about because the team that created CM split from Edios and while Edios kept the Championship Manager name as part of the deal the team took the game itself with them to Sega
Summary: This is the first football manager game I have bought for a console and the chances are that it could be the last. Compared with the old PC games, the scrolling between screens is very sluggish and laboured, and seems to take some time to master. Time which I, and friends who have bought the game, haven't been willing to invest. The screens seem to be crowded, and it isn't obvious where abouts you are on them.
Summary: Very very busy screen. Theyv'e tried to cram as much information on to the screen as possible rather than scrolling down the screen. This has resulted in really small text, that it is very difficult to read. Player comparison is also effected as this is also much smaller, and the colour of the comparison numbers has changed. I found that this change prevented me from being able to distinguish between the colours, and hence not being able to identify the better players.
Summary: i was looking forward to this game being released. i bought it as soon as it did but have to say i was very disapointed. the only good thing about it is the up-to-date transfers but for some reason loaned players are not on-loan they are signed permanantly. The writing is far too small. I think they forgot its not PC so you will not be right in front of the screen. I had to lean forward all the time. The worst thing about it however is the match engine.
Summary: If you have palyed and enjoyed Championship manager, whenit was made by si games and eidos DO NOT BUY THIS... i was looking forward to this because owning an xbox the last version which was available was a couple of years ago and it needed updateing so along came CM5 yippee i whent and bought it loaded it up and started to play WHAT A LET DOWN i tried to get in to it i gave it couple of days play but still wanted the refined feel of the old version..
Summary: If the xbox version of this game is anything like the pc version then it will be rubbish! add the fact that the previous attempts to put a better pc version of champ man onto a console didnt even work then you have the makings of worst football sim ever! defo recomend Football manager 2005 for the pc, but think the current champ man creators are having a giraffe!
Summary: i have always liked managerial sims such as total club manager and football manger but this i think will crack and beat all them down to the ground with the new transfers from january on it. you never no it might evan break records for that kind of sim it will have an all new football match engine and if you're as exited as i am you should really buy it (p.s.
Summary: Championship Manager is the most popular manager game around and seeing it come on to x-box should be brilliant. The detail in every club and player is amazing with full up to date transfers between clubs. If you love football and have an x-box this is a must have and can not be missed out on, especially as it is only £29.99! Trust me football fans, by this game!
