Excerpt: "...let alone since 2006. In this football strategy game you are the man in charge, whether you choose a sheepskin coat or the unshaven look, neither is an option for me, then you get to control and lead your team through a league season. This game is very addictive and time consuming as not only will you get involved in picking the team and deciding tactics but you also have to deal with contract negotiations, the press, financial issues and transfers ...
Summary: This is the first football management on the XBOX 360 and takes the successful Football Manager franchise off the PC straight onto your XBOX 360 console. It takes a while getting used to the controls on this game with all the buttons having a function. This is unlike the PC version where the controls are easy to use. Apart from that you have all the leagues in here [...] and you can choose who to manage to success.

Summary: The 'Football Manager' series was born out of the old 'Championship Manager' series from before Eidos took it over. These were widely regarded as the most realistic football management simulators on the market. I bought the 2005 version for the PC and played it for almost a year before getting a little tired of it. During that time I didn't play any other games because I was so hooked by it.
Summary: Let me start this review by saying if your television is not HD ready then do not attempt to watch the match on the 3D engine... truly looks awful... Also the menu interfaces and controls don't quite feel right. Also, last niggle is that only some of the recent Jan transfers have been updated, i.e. Sean Davis at Portsmouth although strangly no D'Alessandro. This is not the only case as there are quite a few more examples of this.
