    Default Does anyone else find the demo release a double-edged sword?

    I really enjoy playing the FM demo when it comes out make no mistake about it- particularly this years as I've been really impressed with the new features. However the FM demo gives such enjoyment with one hand and then takes away with the other when Jan comes around

    Its such a tease and I find myself hooked on it counting the hours until I can get my ahnd on the full release.

    Does anyone else suffer like this?

    I don't play the demo beyond seeing the new stuff, because the small database with top league is a waste of time.

    love and hate having the demo now. 2 weeks with so many restrictions, although it is a good opportunity to play as the best clubs to suss out the game before playing my preferred game

    I like having it early, gives you a genuine chance to get to grips with the new features and get a feel for how you're going to play, so that when the full game is released there's no reason you can't jump in and start a serious save.

    Because the Maya calendar states that 2012 will be the last human year before the world explodes.

    If you're referring to the fact it only allows you to play for six months...well duhhhh... it's a demo. The clue is in the name, the whole point of a demo is to let you have a look at the new features and tempt you into buying the full game. It's a demo! They're not going to let you play a whole season in a demo are they?? That would be idiotic.

    Where in my post did I ever say they should let me play a full season- you have obviously missed the point

    Please post your results into the bug forum, there is already a thread about FM12 and its extreme easyness. Everyone seems to be able to win even 20-30 games with no issues.

    Thx

    Don't know about this - I am Spurs and have had a fairly solid if unspectacular start, beating Everton but losing to Stoke. Spurs have a team in the game that could (in theory with luck and form) challenge for the title so is it really that much of a surprise? Don't think its a bug myself

    With regards to the demo, I use it to get used to the new features & interfaces with my favourite club (Spurs) and then when the 'full' game is released I settle into a career game, starting at a lower level.

    I find theres no point immersing myself into a lower level career save when it will end in Jan - Not long to go now though ;)

    I love the demo but I never have a serious game on it either. Purely a chance for me to test out the new features and see what has changed so when the game comes out proper I can just crack straight on.

    I'm absolutely loving FM12.

    I cannot wait to play the full version. There are few things that are still bothering me. BUT, it's a fine game and I can't wait to play more than half a season.

    Love having a demo so I have a bit of time to nail a decent tactic and get a feel for transfers and so on with whichever team I feel like have a long save with...

    I'd be forever starting new games if the full version came out without a demo!

    That said, I will probably still re-start games several times loading leagues, players and so on until im happy with the set up
