Still trying to decide...

Recommended Posts

Hey managers,

Firstly, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!.

For the last nine years I preordered FM without hesitation. This year, however, I didn't have the funds to do the same. So here I am with Steam offering 25% off and credit card in hand. But I'm looking at all the negative reviews and feedback, and I'm left wondering...are these people being overly critical about the game and/or performance, or do they have a legitimate grudge? And this is frustrating me because I do not like my mind being made up by others. Anyway, let me ask the question: given the amount of hours I'll probably get out of this game, do you guys feel that at this stage it's worth a buy?

All the best for the new year!

Grant.

Don't let your mind be made up by others. If you're reading the Steam reviews, take them with a pinch of salt. To be honest, very few of them are more than "BEST/WORST GAME EVER" reviews.

My advice? Play the demo if you're not sure.

Hey CFuller,

Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Regarding Steam reviews, this is why I posted here. What worries me are the strongly worded posts follwing an update: "This f'ing game crahes now, this piece of **** game"and so on.

Grant.

No computer program will work perfectly on every computer, Grant.

Some users may have problems with FM if they have an unstable PC; others may not. I completed the six-month demo, and only had ONE crash dump in that time. I've not had many crashes on FM17 either.

Wrong spelling of program.

There are such many different computer/systems/setups and some could cause a crash. Those who are just playing the game without any issues do usually not post a review that the game just run fine on their machine.

In the same boat and unsure if to buy it or not. Have been playing FM12 for the last month and having a blast.

Seems like 18 has a few known issues judging comments on here

25% off may sway me to buy the new one so thanks for heads up.

Hello Kubi,

You and CFuller are so right to mention the wide variety of PC hardware and configurations! And I should know this better than most; I built my own PC and took a long time selecting from literally hundreds of different parts before finally ordering them.

Ah, I'm buying it.

Grant.
