Summary: *** I bought this for the youngster but paid under a tenner when it was on offer on Amazon earlier this year and it is not that good. There are far better football games out there. I am not too sure it was worth the tenner I paid for it - it certainly wasn't worth much more.
Summary: Straight to the point. This game is utter garbage. The match engine is unbelievably bad. Every time a player gets the ball he will eather pass to the other team or run till he gets fouled. You will end up with about 3 players sent off and 3 injured every single game. By mid season I had no first team players left and got to the stage where i couldn't play because i simply had no players.
Summary: This game is the poorest football management game i have ever bought.I two though it would be good and egnored the bad reviews but i is sooooo rubbish.firstly is the tackling part of the game u are ment 2 be able 2 shout orders from the touch line.THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN you select the order CONSERVATIVE TACKLE (ie run by the side any get the ball)but NO the players simply run as fast as they can until they are withing range and slide tackle in the back of the legs...
Summary: Total Club Manager is an average game. Its main feature, which is called football fusion, is where you can export teams from Total Club Manager 2004 and play them on Fifa Football 2004. This feature is good but the end product makes you feel like you are getting one game for the price of two games. Total Club Manager 2004 has a few good points. Its main good point is its 3d match engine.
Summary: its rubbish u cannot be a conference side like exeter and the graphics are terrible if you want a footie game do not get this you will look like a fool. i would rate this game no stars but u cant.
Summary: I bought this as something to keep me occupied whilst I wait for my computer to be upgraded and until I can get Championship Manager 4. I'd read a few decent reviews and thought it couldn't be as bad as a Premier Manager game I had years ago. It's worse. The game prides itself on the amount of stats that it has, but players don't have a score to show what level they are at, there is just a weedy little bar to show if they are good enough to be in your team.
Summary: The last management game i bought was FA Premier League Manager 2002 for the PC about a year ago which was also by EA Sports.I expected this to be just as good.How wrong i was.Apart from the statistics which are more than you can shake a stick at,the 3D match graphics are PS1 standard thats not to say i read 3 chapters of war and peace whilst waiting for it to load.I played as Leeds United and we had a game against Liverpool.Both teams had an all white kit!!!
Summary: I just wanted to agree with "parascelsus" below. I bought it on the strength of a good review I'd read. I don't know what game they played, but TCM04 is horrendous. The game has appalling loading times (compared to other XBox games). When you watch the game "live", you might as well be looking at 22 Dennis Wises. It's hilarious to see anything like 10-12 yellows and reds in one game, with each fouled player suffering a match-ending injury.
Summary: Everythings great about it. I wanted to buy CM for the PC but my computer was not compatable for the game so i chose TCM for the xbox. i thought i was taking a risk, but it turns out it was a good decision. The game play is smooth and the the media thing in the game is the best ive seen it,ever.
Summary: Bought this game today, and I've been playing in non-stop for several hours now, but in the end I'd had enough and had to stop and come and write this review. I'll break it down into little sections for you... CONTROLS It's not easy playing a game like this without a mouse, but the main functions are activated by the triggers and the black/white buttons. Moving between the various windows on the screens is always done by the red button.
