Which game is best at the moment? Or is there another one out there worth a try?
Has the old Champ Manager team doing it and is by far the better.
Football Manager is the superior game by a country mile. Don't even dirty your hands with that Championship Manager shite.
Cheers mate... in what ways is it better? I don't care too much about graphics. I want a deep game that's simple to control.
Alot more too it. More teams, players, things you can do, etc.. (i think)
The graphics on both are pretty shite. The 3d engine in footy manager is decent enough so you can see whats gannin on during the match.
I disagree. I think the graphics on FM are very good and perfect at the moment for that game - small but very detailed.
For me FM is streets and streets ahead of CM - whats happening on the pitch reflects the game and player stats, whereas it doesn't in Championship Manager.
Champ man went tits up when Sports Interactive pulled out/whatever the circumstances were, and made Footie Manager.
Football Manager by a long way.
Oh, and games and games consoles this shite.
Eidos decided not to all SI to renew the rights to the brand, as they wanted a bigger cut - so they employed a new team to create a brand new game.
All Eidos owned from the deal was the "look and feel" of the GUI. SI owned the game engine and the player database.
SI then went out and purchased the rights to Football Manager from Kevin Toms, who wrote the original spectrum version.
Ah dont get me wrong, for the game it is they are decent (and certainly alot better than anything previous). But in gaming as a whole (ie in todays gaming standards) they are shite and are not gonna tax your graphics card.
I do like them tho and they do give a good representation of whats going on.
Anyone who plays Champ Man over FM wants their head looking at.
football manager all the way. Since the Collyers brought out FM I havn't even looked at champ man and have only heard bad things about it.
See my post above for the reason behind that.
Also, are both brothers still working on the games, I thought one of them left years ago?
This FM is harder and more realistic than others, took me a while to get into it but now I've mastered it I love it.
As previously said, FM is far far better.
One of the Collier brothers moved to Istanbul I believe.
Football Manager is the only option! Champ Manager is total shite in comparison!
came back, only for fm online though.Other one does the match engine still.
