Summary: having played this game on the PC I was curious to see how it would survive the transition to XBox. Result - top notch. Not only is the game as indepth but it can now be played without any long delays while loading or saving. The game itself is a typical managemnet sim with all the players, pitfalls and competitions you could want including some clever work depicting the Media response to your peformance.
Summary: I thoroughly enjoyed this game which is utterly bizarre because I am not particularly a football fan, there are no pretty graphics and I am not a big fan of numbers (there are enough statistics to keep Steven Hawkins busy for a lifetime). Why is this? Well, as a strategy gamer / nerd with an XBox, (the XBox was a present), I feel a little starved of games.
Summary: I remember the days I used to waste playing Championship Manager 2 on my PC. Hour after hour was lost guiding teams to trophies, uncovering top quality youngsters and screaming in frustration as the penalty that would have won me the European Cup got missed by Eric Cantona. It was fantastic, it was addictive and it was fun.
Summary: First impressions were not great; this is very obviously a straight port from the PC original and the lack of a mouse makes control initially irritating. Bear with it though because after a while you realise you haven't moved from the screen for an unhealthy amount of time. The level of detail in this game is frightening, with your squad of players all complaining or complementing you depending on how well you do.
Championship manager, a true managerial experience.
1 May 2002
Summary: Championship manager is the most realistic football management game that has ever been made. the game is so addictive and you will never get bored of it, you get the chance to test your wits against the best of the best and try and take your favourite team to europe or a higher league, you can do everything that the real managers have to do, buy and sell players, fine players, ask your board for more money, control your reserve team, scout the world for the next michael...
Summary: Once again the championship manager series proves to be the best. The database on this game is quite frankly incredible. Literally if you know a proplayer whos not in this please tell me. Although this is fantistic my dad tells me pc version is exacly the same. But then again i've been hearing the database editor doesn't work very well on the P.C version, which is a major plus so you don't need to buy a new version every season.
Summary: I've been after this game since it was announced for the Xbox, as Unfortunately i'm working away from home, so carting around my PC isn't much of an option. All the features of the PC version are here as far as i've seen (20hrs in) & nice touches are the sidebar that is activated using the black button, and the controls become second nature when trying to alter tactics & view stats in mid game.
Summary: If you have ever thought of yourself as an aspiring manager of a small Conference side or a mighty Premiership team then Championship Manager will bring out the football megalomaniac in you. The depth of this game is incredible you can choose from any team in any country and then buy and sell any player each with their own individual stats. You have the challenge of dealing with more injuries than Man United and the money problems of poor struggling sides.
