Met editie 2007 bevestigde Eidos dat CM helemaal terug was. Jaargang 2008 gaat verder op het elan: samen met Football Manager de absolute top.
If however, you're after a management game that's highly accessible, requires only a modicum of tactical tinkering, allows you to buy the players that you really want and enables you to enjoy instant success and thrilling match highlights, then you should certainly consider opting for CM2008. And while the entertainment levels are likely to drop off fairly quickly, your two of three seasons of success will fill you with the kind of warm glow that few other management games can provide without the investment of endless hours of your life.
Fundamentally, there's nothing to win players away from Football Manager. Apart from the way the match engine looks (and even that doesn't account for taste) FM does everything better, including the way games unfold during said match engine. The scouting and training systems are better, the player interaction is more in-depth, team talks are in keeping with what real managers might say, media interaction is more realistic and most importantly FM is more authentic. While all of the above remains truth there's no reason why you should plump for Eidos' game. The only relation to what Championship Manager used to be and what it is now is the name. All the talent left with Sports Interactive.
