Not really. The reviews weren't very impressive imo and media/player interaction looks no different, which is my biggest disappointment as it's the area which could be developed the most but seems to be no better year on year.

Will wait for the demo which will hopefully bring me around with its other features.

First year I'm not getting it on release since the 90's. Waiting until Christmas this year. Am enjoying my FM15 game in 2029 quite a bit in the mean time.

I can't wait. I loved playing the beta, but I can't wait to use the editor, make the changes I want and then start my long term save. I considered staying up from midnight onwards, but I have to take the kids to school in the morning so I won't bother - but I don't have work so I intend to be on it all day tomorrow!

Depends on your internet speed. As soon as a game is released and paid for it is able to be downloaded and played. Usually they don't take too long. I believe Steam caps out downloads at 2mbps though. Not entirely sure.

Will keep an eye on reviews but probably will be the first ever I haven't got on release day. May well wait until last patch time in new year.

Looking forward to getting the editor so I can sort Man United out before starting a long-term save.

I try and break the Beta ever year to wring all the bugs out of it and put the ME under pressure, but to me those first 2 weeks aren't 'playing the game' until I can get hold of the editor and change the name of 3 youngsters in the reserve squad to the names of my kids and put them in the first team. Only then does the game start for me :D

I was very critical about this game when all the new features were revealed, & still believe they lack any substance. I did though buy the game & played the Beta, & like most on these boards have been very impressed what is underneath, & how well the game plays. I learned long ago to ignore reviews as on most occasions never give a real opinion of games, but read the views of what people are saying. If you are unsure do wait to play the demo, & look at some of the youtube playthroughs which can be very helpful & informative.

I've just found a way to stop conceding goals and it's all about to change...

Yeah, demo's the way to go. It's just really really disappointing that not much has seemingly been done about interaction.

No, it really isn't. I would stake a lot on there being no Match Engine changes.

Meh. I've had the Beta and I maintain that this year feels like FM 15.5. I am looking forward to correcting a few issues with the editor though. Principally moving Chris Eagles to Bury which happened too late.

Having said that maybe there is one upside to having been made redundant!!!!

Not as excited as before (although I'll still buy the game tomorrow). Fallout 4 has a lot to do with it.
