  1. Improved graphics and useful changes make FIFA Manager 09 the best football management simulation one can get. Whoever refrained from upgrading to the newest installment of the series in the last few years, should surely do so now.
  2. You can just sense how much effort the developers have put into this game, a lot of work is still needed however for this game to offset the FM series.

    In a sense, it seems that FIFA Manager 09 is more a lifestyle than a game - to get the most out of it you need to put in some real time. A season, if played thoroughly, will take as long as most full games these days. This makes it an absolutely incredible management simulation, but simply too much for all but the biggest fans.
  4. FIFA Manager 09 contains every detail a micro-management nut could possibly want, and probably a few they won't. For the mainstream football game enthusiast this will probably be a snore-fest, but the true management fan will be more than satisfied with the depth on offer.

    Too many bugs in the English game eg playing League Cup matches against other sides reserve sides, having three subs in England team all Too many bugs in the English game eg playing League Cup matches against other sides reserve sides, having three subs in England team all called Owen Hargreaves and inability to make substitutions. A step back from the previous game and still the lack of consistency between what happens in the 3D game and the evaluations given to the players. Full Review »
