Championship Manager 01/02 is one of those addictive games that makes you decide to play “just a little hit longer” even though it’s a quarter to three in the morning. Even if you’re not a soccer fan, give it a shot—this is a great game.
The waiting is finally over, the new season for virtual football managers has begun. The excitement with which every release of a Championship Manager game is greeted grows with every new release. Every year there are other football management games that come out, last a few weeks in the charts and plop into the bargain bucket. Championship Manager is different though as it remains at No.1 for weeks and remains in the top ten until the next version. The reason for its success is simple, it is as real as any game will get. Spot a new footballing star in a game of Championship Manager and it is almost a certainty that in real life that player will also become a star.

Sports Interactive really has one hell of a winner on their hands and as long as they keep the updates coming, this is a game that will keep to the top of the charts.
Sammanfattningsvis är det bara att konstatera att kombinationen av nytt och gammalt gör Championship Manager 01/02 överlägset konkurrenterna. Och även om man har förra säsongens version tycker jag definitivt inte att man ska undvika det. Att sedan spelet som sådant är en oerhört smal titel är en helt annan sak.

All of which leaves CM 01 / 02 fit for the new season and an essential edition to any footie fans gaming collection. With the next instalment, CM4, Sports Interactive are promising support for multiplayer gaming, and possibly, a tactical view of players during the match… I look forward to this with drooling impatience. In the meantime, I'm off to continue Liverpool's season of destiny, the European Cup is within my grasp, I urge you to do the same, for Championship Manager is simply the best football management simulation ever.

Championship Manager 01/02 continues the long tradition of career management simulation dominance begun many years ago by Sports Interactive. Whether or not you'll want to wait for Championship Manager 4 depends on how much you valuable the incremental changes in the current version.

Championship Manager: Season 01/02 is a game you'll come back to again and again. Even after this review I will continue to play this game, and improve my team's performance, and the inclusion of the player editor allows you to create your own teams and take them to the top. Put yourself into the game, your family, your colleagues, your pets, put their pics in with the picture editor and you have a game that offers limitless lifespan as well as self-customisation. This is football heaven.

EU vaati vuosi sitten FIFA:a muuttamaan jalkapallossa vallitsevia pelaajasopimussäännöksiä. Jalkapallossa ei työvoima siirtynyt vapaasti, sillä ammattilaispelaaja ei voi vaihtaa työpaikkaansa samalla kolmen kuukauden irtisanomisajalla kuin tavallinen duunari. Jalkapalloliitot vastustivat ideaa jyrkästi, koska se olisi romuttanut koko nykyisen seurasysteemin.

Nog steeds de absolute top in het genre, maar je moet zorgvuldig afwegen of de kleine vernieuwingen je zuurverdiende centen waard zijn!
Nog steeds het beste in zijn genre, maar hopelijk krijgen de makers dit jaar weer nieuwe inspiratie om van nr. 4 een echt nieuw spel te maken.

Gränssnittet i CM är förlegat och behöver definitivt en upprustning till nästa utgåva som enligt utsago ska bli Championship Manager 4. Men för övrigt så funkar detta lika bra som förut.

Dabei ist das Spiel gar nicht schlecht: Neben den üblichen Features wie Aufstellung, Taktik und Transfermarkt wuchert der englische Vorzeige-Manager in erster Linie mit allen nur erdenklichen Details. Das Problem: Die Optionsfülle ist derart unübersichtlich aufgebaut, dass man alle naselang eine wichtige Einstellung vergisst oder - im besten Fall - genervt danach sucht.

Neuerdings dürfen Sie beim DFB gegen Schiedsrichterentscheidungen Beschwerde einlegen und sogar Rechtsschritte einleiten. Protestieren sollten eher die Käufer, die ihr Geld in diesen Murks investieren - und zwar bei Eidos. Vielleicht bleibt uns dieses Trauerspiel dann nächstes Jahr erspart.
