Good afternoon all,
I'm new here and I'm looking for the best football management sim I can. FM2010 has caught my interest with its sheer depth and seeing as I've never played an FM game before, I wanted to know a little more about what I can expect. I've always played Fifa Manager in the past because it was fun and daft, this year I tried out Champ Manager and have come away with mixed feelings. I've been reading the blogs on The Mirror's site with interest, but I wanted to also know what YOU, the fans of FM thought.
My ideal management sim would incorporate such things as:
- extremely deep tactics wherein you can set each individual player to do specific, and if possible, multiple jobs on the pitch. I'd also like to be able to tell players things like what area of the pitch they must stick to etc.
- I would like a training system where you can really go hands on and develop a player into the person you want them to be - Champ Man has made a decent effort at this.
- a 3D match engine that will accurately reflect what I have told my team to do using a realistic and decent AI - my major gripe with Champ Man is that it isn't doing this at the mo.
- a transfer system which is as lifelike as possible.
How many of these boxes have past FMs ticked, and from what you've gathered from your personal research, do you reckon FM10 has a good chance of achieving this?
Any genuine feedback on FM (especially depth of tactics), would be greatly appreciated.
