For those who don't know, 2004 saw the split of the developers of the Championship Manager series from the game's original publishers, Eidos, who took the name, while Sega took the team that made the title what it was and released Football Manager. With Championship Manager you get reliability and release dates that are adhered to, but some inexperience. With Football Manager you get all the playability that has come with years of developing football management sims. However, as can be seen from their March release date on the PSP, there is an apathy that could see the game not being available for some time after this date. That said, I cant help but think that Championship Manager's place locked into my UMD drive is merely temporary; come the release of Football Manager, something tells me it will become obsolete faster than Birmingham City's trophy cabinet…

And for a game that relies on a daunting amount of stats, trawling through all the numbers is remarkably quick and easy thanks to the well-designed menus and neat layout. A winner.

Whatever your thoughts on the whole Footy Manager/Championship Manager fisticuffs, there’s no denying Champ Man PSP is a true miniature marvel. All the leagues are there, all the players are there, and – frankly – it’s incredible that something this mind-bogglingly comprehensive has all been squeezed right down into just a few inches of circuitry.

The big question is of course whether this fun period only lasts till Sports Interactive launches Football Manager 2006 on the PSP in a few months. While Gusto Games did a great job, they certainly didn’t rethink much of the core game or added features that appeal specifically to the hardcore community. Sports Interactive may be able to create an even better game with a bigger database and more innovation. However, SI did at some point warn the fans that FM PSP would not be the same as the PC game. But until we’ve seen both games in action lets just rejoice at the fact that we now have two skilled developers creating football management games for the PSP. And competition has always been a strong motivation for creating good products.

A worthy buy for any fans of the series and if the randomness thing could be sorted then it's certainly one of the best PSP titles currently around.
