Which is your favourite Version

Recommended Posts

I have decided not to buy this version yet. Read alot of people are not happy with this new one. But i'm wondering which version the people who have not bought FM2013 or who are not happy are reverting / continuing to use. For me its FM 2010 but I have started another FM2012 to see how it goes.

This version is the best yet by a million miles for me. If you let opinion on this forum around release time dictate if your going to buy the latest version or not, you'd never buy any version. It's a complete car crash in General discussion every single year around this time. You just have to remember for every one person registered on here throwing their toys out the pram their are probably ten not registered here who are happily getting on with playing the game.

Fair point. Just not wanting to buy a game that I end up not likely....

Well it's hardly scientific to let others decide whether or not you'll like a game, try the Demo and make up your own mind.

Gonna have a crack at the Demo again - I couldn't get it to download last time. Fingers Crossed.

FM13 is brilliant. A number of new things such as FM Classic, FM Challenges which some may prefer to the actual FM career mode.

Finally a positive thread with positive responses! FM13 is great, it has flaws, they will get fixed, and then it will be brilliant.

Do you have to be so consistently rude with your comments? I am astonished that you are allowed to get away with it, when all other representitives of SI are polite and professional. It seems that every time i read a thread, you have put somebody down.

Something to note about the negative posts here. The guys (like myself and all my friends) that are enjoying the game don't generally post about it. It's mainly people that have problems that make negative posts. I for one love FM 13. Sure it has it's problems but I haven't bought a game or any other software yet that didn't need patching. Great work SI.

FM 13 when the ME is fixed will be the best fm by a mile people just need to be patient and I am sure we will see a fix next week at some point, the game is still playable so enjoy.

FM13 - The latest features are fantastic, yes it's a little buggy but well worth the price. I enjoyed 06 but it was way too easy.

FM2012 - Best of the 2009-2012 engine.

FM2008 - Best of the 2005-2008 engine.

FM2013 has a long way to go. At this moment the match engine is seriously flawed.

I really enjoyed the last version of FM (2012), I had a unbeatable tactic so it became something of a exercise in building a dynasty and cherry picking the best young players and working them through the ranks.

FM 2010 was my favourite but FM 13 will surpass it I think - the match engine really looks impressive and sensible well thought out tactics actually work as they should.

Long term saves imo have not been anywhere near as good since 2008. That imo was the last true great.

Meh...

of course every new iteration will likely become the "best", mainly due to people learning to cope with the flaws it has while appreciating the new/improved features... And in the end it's mostly a matter of habit.

IMO FM12 was good until they tampered with team talks making things harder (ie. random). But in the end I don't think there's SO MUCH difference between, say, FM10 and its two sequels.

At least not the difference you had from other franchises with longer release gaps.

Can FM13 be the first step toward a new direction? Probably, but I'm not even sure it's in the right direction... We'll see next spring how the patches will have shaped the game. Currently I'll stick to FM12 because the additions don't convince me to fork out 40€ for a glorified WIP update.

P.S. about the "every year people come out to complain while most users enjoy the game" approach... well... the silent majority is a bit of a strawman argument, moreso in a field where improvement and feedback go hand in hand.

Had people not complained we'd still have twice the long-serving bugs we have in FM.

I'd rather read through 10 rants if there's 1 useful point in them than enduring the usual asskissing festival.
