    Its a good game indeed but its designing sucks! I mean they don't care for the performance of the game you can only play a league and wait ten hours to load (the league' stuff and so). They should be looking to improve the game in terms of code. Also i would like to add that they've fucked up with the morale and stuff. It's just a waste of time to play such a game!

Better play an old manager with new database. Expand

    Another awful football managing game. There has not been a good managing game since Championship Manager 01/02 on the PC, which I still play, using patches from champman0102.co.uk. I always hope that Sports Interactive or Eidos will come close to, or surpass Championship Manager 01/02. CM 01/02's tactical grid, for positioning of players with, and without the ball, gives you a lot Another awful football managing game. There has not been a good managing game since Championship Manager 01/02 on the PC, which I still play, using patches from champman0102.co.uk. I always hope that Sports Interactive or Eidos will come close to, or surpass Championship Manager 01/02. CM 01/02's tactical grid, for positioning of players with, and without the ball, gives you a lot more precision in where you want your players to be. The individual instructions are much more precise about the players role on CM 01/02. On Football Manager 2009, all you can do is make the team less or more wider in the system they are playing. I know exactly how I want my team to play, I spend hours and hours perfecting my tactics on the grid on CM 01/02. On this game I spent 90 minutes at a time, changing everything possible, to try to get the team to play as i wanted them, but was unsucessful. The purist football managment sim gamers are still playing Championship Manager 01/02. I await a successor. Expand

  1. Sports Interactive created the greatest football manager yet. Huge, with an incredible number of leagues from all around the world, complex but also really intuitive, and with the added feature of 3D matches where we can watch our team in real time. Just a couple of technical issues keep the game away from being nearly perfect.
  2. A mixture of good and bad. On one hand it's the finest, most complete and visually fulfilling game the series has ever enjoyed, but on the other it contains so many niggles you'll feel irritated almost as often as you feel elated. The good news is that a patch has been promised soon after release, but in the meantime we have no choice but to mark it down accordingly.
  3. No problem proved bad enough to significantly tarnish my experience and on the whole Sports Interactive has tweaked an already brilliant game to make something even better. If you want a high stress virtual job on top of your real one, have hours to burn each day looking at an interactive database, and fancy yourself as the next Alex Ferguson, Football Manager 2009 might be the only game you'll need until this time next year.
