    Sometimes simpler is better.

    I am shocked to see how underrated this game is, most people consider it inferior to FM because it doesn't have the flashy features and all that. These two games shouldn't be compared because they do not target the same ... Read Full Review

    Championship Manager 2008

    Often, the rise and fall of game franchises can be equated with the fluctuating fortunes of footballing empires. Just like Liverpool were once kings of English football, there was a time when Championship Manager was the... Read Full Review

    CM 2008 is not a game worth playing at all.

    Championship Manager kicks off the 07-08 soccer season, this time lacking completely the sense of a soccer management game. ProZone analysis remains for a second year in the game, making it easier for you to set up yo... Read Full Review

    Unbelieveable that this got a 6.0 !

    People should really know what makes a soccer manager game good or bad . I found the 2007 version a total let-down. I expected much more but only got a half broken game. In this version however, they really made thing... Read Full Review

    Stop comparing it to Football Manager.

    I can't tell how many times I've heard 'Oh, this isn't Football Manager' (aka World Soccer Manager). Of course it isn't, it's not supposed to be. People tend to look at this game with FM in mind, and how shallow this gam... Read Full Review

    Absolutely superb

    Contary to what other users believe, this manager game is phenomenal in what it can give a player. In no way is it too hard, and it is only too easy if all you try to attempt to do is take the world by storm and win eve... Read Full Review

    A fairly good game, but limited in many ways

    First of all let me say that this game has got many of the crucial things right. The database of players is enourmous and the majority of the skills associated bith the players are accurate. Whatsmore the information abo... Read Full Review

    It's just not Football Manager...

    This game has its own good qualities, let's not get it wrong, there is much to like about this game, too bad all the best features are also found in the counterpart game FM 08 and then some. With a real lack of abilit... Read Full Review

    Great game! Bad data!

    The game and game play itself is really amazing it just seems to keep getting better every year. you can mould players and teach them to play in new positions which is really useful when some of your key players are inj... Read Full Review
