Rate the last 5 FMs

Recommended Posts

How do you rate the last 5 FMs, scale 1-5?

FM13-3
FM14-5
FM15-4
FM16-2
FM17-

Just curious where my opinion stands with others.

In my opinion it gets better every year and I've liked all of them so far.

In order of best to "least best"

 

FM 17

FM 16

FM 15

FM 14

FM 13

 

I find each new version is better than the previous instalment.

 

If we are giving arbitrary "scores" for each game then they all get a 5.

From best down

FM15

FM17 (has the potential to go top)

FM14

FM16

FM13

Not going to give them scores, as there's little between them all.

In my opinion this is by far the best done in ages. I've not enjoyed a new edition as much as this one since '09!

I'd agree with the polecat, this is the best for quite a long time. This is almost as good as the late 2000s versions.

As I see it, FM is a game that consistently and steadily improves year on year; ergo, FM17 is the best iteration of the series yet for me.

There's no point in giving them arbitrary scores from 1-5, because even the 'worst' game of the last 5 years - FM13 - is still excellent. Indeed, it's my favourite version of FM (so far - FM17 could well overtake it in the future), and I still play it!

I'd say they're all an improvement on the prior version except 2016 wasn't quite as fun for me as 2015. But that might just be because I got a bit bored with it that year, idk.

Thoroughly enjoyed Football Manager 13. Just couldn't get into 14 and haven't played since then. 

 

Hopefully, 17 will get me back into it all again.

Hmm, the old steam store gives some interesting feedback. 2017 has a metacritic score of 80, yet 2016, which by many accounts was god awful, got an 81. 

2017 is really getting mixed reviews, not all the bad ones seem to be coming 'newbies' either. Read through a few pages of feedback, quite a few 100+ hour game time negative reviews.

Not saying these reviews are gospel, but as a consumer it makes me a little hesitant to buy it. It is also A$60, which is pricey for a digital copy. 

There is a saying that "familiarity breeds contempt." Football manager has been around for some time now, meaning some of us older guys are getting quite 'familiar' with game.

I love FM, but it would break my spirit somewhat to buy 2017, and find the same niggling little flaws and bugs in it that were present in older versions. 

 

2014- the only version, apart from 2009 (which I give a 4 by the way), that I own- 3 out of 5. (with 5 requiring absolute perfection, which is impossible, so 4.99 is rationally the highest score).
