8 October 2003
Excerpt: "...think about football management simulations, Championship Manager will always be the first game you think off. It is a simple fact that this range is without a doubt the best football management range available, others just dont come close!, and with each new release it just gets even better. Championship Manger is so thoroughly researched that even in small-print the list of contributors is longer than you can imagine, and the results it produces ...
Pros: Amazing detail
Cons: Have to keep buying new releases to keep updated
Excerpt: "Wow! What can I say this game is great. Just like the ones before it this to is very addictive, being able to manage your favorite footie team and being able to buy the players that you think they should have is really good. Right this is how it works: Take over a team from one of 20 countries, pick the squad, set the training regime, select a tactical system i.e 4-4-2, and watch them play, with the great in detail text. You can turn your team into ...
Pros: Being able to manage your favourite footie team
Excerpt: "Having played Championship Manager for many years on the PC I was suprised and intrigued by its introduction to a console like the Xbox and I did think it would be hard to pull such a feat off. However having experienced the game on the Xbox I was pleasently suprised, the gameplay is still as interesting and rewarding as the PC version and the graphics just as high quality. The cross over from PC to console does take a bit of getting used to but ...
Pros: Great gameplay, ideal for any football enthusiast
Cons: Compared to PC version, users will be dissapointed
Summary: What Is It? What a question. Championship Manager is the most addictive game that I have ever played. Not only that but it is also the only game that I have felt so passionate about. Your target is to take control a football team and bring that team to the promised land of international success. You have the ability to manage a range of teams from third division English league teams to Serie A or even international squads such as Nigeria and Brazil.
Pros: Easy On Storage Memory, Updates And Plug-Ins Available From Website, Improve Football Knowledge
Summary: Championship Manager now includes many new features the original versions lacked. These include: being about to manage in 26 different countries, a more sophisticated, EU-regulated transfer system, better scouting and training systems, more interactivity with the board and attribute masking and "random players" options which give the game more depth once you have memorised all the real player stats.
Pros: detailed and accurate stats on real players, VERY addictive
Cons: poor graphics and sound, slow on older machines (eg my P166 64Mb RAM)

Summary: It's not a game. Relationships have been ruined by it. Flatmates kicked out because of it. Whole months gobbled by it. Lives consumed by it. It's Championship Manager: and for the first time ever, you can plug it into your telly. Champ Man is THE immersive football sim. It's rumoured that not only do real life managers play it, they use the staggeringly huge database to scout out new players.
Pros: Exhaustingly accurate, Huge database, Long lifespan
