So what's the word on this one Englishers?

Good enough that it warrents replacing CM 00/01, which I consider one of the 3 best games I've ever played?

Alright lady. Cookies will only buy you so much goodwill, and you're burning through it like a fat guy eating ice cream.

10-12-2004, 14:41:28
Ok, fuck faces. I went and looked at some of the other threads and no where is my question answered. There's like 2 threads and neither of them give any recommendation. So you can shove it up your well laid ass, you Thomas A Stobie cock holster.

Thereís little point beating about the bush, Football Manager 2005 is a staggering achievement and the finest football management game ever to appear on any format. Its success, ultimately, is down to the fact that it pulls off a spectacularly tricky balancing act. On one hand, thereís a gigantic database of teams, players and statistics with staggering depths of detail; and on the other is an extremely user-friendly interface that always puts you at the heart of the game, and allows you to easily and succinctly use the vast reservoirs of tools and options at your disposal. It might be putting things simply, but the two have been married up to create a standout game.
But then all this is hardly a surprise. Football Manager 2005 has been created by the team behind the Championship Manager series, and whilst they no longer have the rights to use the brand name, the actual gameís origins are never in question. Frankly, there are so many improvements, itís impossible to scratch the surface of them.

So weíll focus on two. The media section really hangs together properly for arguably the first time, with intriguing options that allow you to play mind games with other managers for instance. And the match day segment has come on at speed, with a smooth and useful highlights option that feels far more natural and integrated than previously.

Does it have flaws? The odd one or two, which are minor niggles caused more as a result of extreme ambition on the part of the developers rather than sloppy work. Yet the real worry is the amount of time the game will sap. Make no mistake, for any armchair football fan who has ever dreamed of taking their team to glory, Football Manager 2005 will rob them of months of their life. In short, its easy-to-use, itís desperately challenging, incredibly addictive and downright unmissable. Accept no imitations.----

See Venom...Thats INFO! :)

20-12-2004, 21:28:29
You're so picky.

20-12-2004, 21:36:59
So did that help?

20-12-2004, 21:44:09
Sure it did.

21-12-2004, 23:44:44
You were going to get it anyway. So it didn't matter what people *said*, Venom.

22-12-2004, 13:44:21
Actually I wasn't sure I was going to get it. CM 00/01 is perfect as is for me.

22-12-2004, 22:14:48
If it is so perfect, then why are you looking for a better game?

23-12-2004, 00:25:31
CM00/01 is perfect, and while perfection can't be improved the charteristics and conditions measuring perfection can be.
