What are peoples opinions of this, do other's agree that this is the best & most stable version of the FM series' so far?

without a shadow of a doubt, it is superb. With another patch in the future I am sure the next year will be most enjoyable.

Bit early to say but I'm definately leaning that way. 07 was good, 08 was a bit of a let down but 09 seems to be spot on so far.

Unfortunately I think the quality of the game has been ignored due to the shambles that surrounded the inadequate authentication system, which is fair enough really.

But so far, once I finally got it working, I've found the game to be very enjoyable. I personally love the 3D engine, especially when it comes to identifying weaknesses in your tactics. The game runs very smoothly for me on my 4 year old PC, so I've got no complaints there.

However, I feel the 3D engine will leave the game open to a lot of moaning. This is mainly because any flaws that are present in the way the game represents what's going on in the match engine will be much easier to see in 3D. So expect a lot of moans about players not moving realistically or one-on-ones being missed too often.

For me the 3D match engine is just what I expected - an excellent first step into the world of 3D.

I'd love to comment however the game for me a Mac user is unplayable at the moment however the demo did seem very good interface and features wise!

I just hope I can play the game soon!

so far i am impressed, so it could definately be the best yet.

I love it, a few stability issues that I'm sure will be fixed in the future, and of course the injury thing being rectified in the next Mac patch, whenever that comes lol. All this aside I am impressed.

It's hard to choose between FM07 & FM09 for me at the moment.

After the 8.0.2 Patch was released I think FM08 was the best game in the series, I found 07 too easy, FM09 could become better than 08 if the patches remove the bugs and improve the realism of things like injuries.

It's excellent, definitely the best yet.

07 was my favourite. Lot of great saves on that game :D

Its got the potential to be one of the best but due to the way SI/Sega have handled this lauch it could still go down as the biggest own goal of all time (yes even worse than a Titus Bramble mistake)!!!
