  1. While FIFA Manager 10 is by no means a poor game, there's an underlying suspicion that the energy that's been pumped into the hit-and-miss multiplayer features would have been better spent on genuinely innovating the single-player game, which sadly feels a little too similar to last year and a little tactically thin compared to FM and CM.
  2. Fifa Manger 10 is a good game with a lot of stuff and hours of fun. You have the total freedom to decide to be coach, manager or president, or event every one of them at the same time. In the end the game has a solid multiplayer that can give a long lasting life during the year.

    Perfect presentation and great playability are no surprise in new FIFA Manager. Pity there’s not much improvement since last years version and players/teams database still sucks. [Issue#186]
  4. It's a fun game, with its appealing look and a little background sound that gives it a casual air.
  5. The game completely failed to charm me and it lacks an addictive hook. A valiant but ultimately doomed effort to break the dominance of the old firm, FIFA Manager 10 is set for mid table obscurity.

    A flawed gem. [Jan 2010, p.79]
  7. Whilst FM10 tries its hand at all aspects of football management, it isn’t entirely successful in all its pursuits and does end up lagging behind its older, slightly more mature brothers.
  8. The football side of things is fairly solid, but sadly the game includes too many duties that simply aren’t part of being the manager of a football club. Then there’s the personal life aspect to deal with and coupled together they really stop the title competing with rival games. Often leaving you overwhelmed and spoiling the playing experience on offer, which is a shame as it will probably drive football mad gamers else where.

    I have all 3 of this years management games (CM10, FM10 and FIFAM10). I only purchased this game a few days ago. It has some bugs, but by far I have all 3 of this years management games (CM10, FM10 and FIFAM10). I only purchased this game a few days ago. It has some bugs, but by far the worst thing in this years offering is the 30 FPS cap on the 3D matches. Trying to remove it just results in crash after crash as I believe the coding of the 3D games are dependant on the framerate. Still, playable, but dissapointing. FM10 still reigns supreme this year, with CM10 a VERY close second this time around. Full Review »

    It has nice graphics, but if you are looking for a management game, do yourself a service and google "Football Manager 2010" from Sports It has nice graphics, but if you are looking for a management game, do yourself a service and google "Football Manager 2010" from Sports Interactive. Same price, twice as complete from a manager's point of view. The graphics for the matches aren't as nice as FIFA Manager, but that is because the focus was put where it needed to be: Management. If you already bought this game, you should STILL give Football Manager 2010 a try, it's much better than EA's game. Full Review »

    It could be a much better game but it's full of bugs. The worst part is that after the official updates the game became even worse. It could be a much better game but it's full of bugs.
