“FM Series are not just games they are life. Be careful Fm makes u unsocial but it worth of course. This version of Fm one of the best with 07 version. Process is very quick, match motor is quite successful, player attributes are very realistic. Also its very quick playing multiplayer. I'm still palying this version, not 09. 09 is sucks, worst Fm I've ever played. I hope Fm 2010 will be better than this but it seems impossible, because Fm 08 is unbeaten.” read more
“Whilst running the risk of becoming wildly unpopular with most of my male counterparts, and more recently some female ones. I feel it necessary to state a warning about this game.

Much like, 2007, the game uses an immense data base of players and statistics to allow you to build and manage your own football team.
Budgets, players and player statistics are unique to each team, as are the fan and board expectations. The sheer immensity of the d” read more
“The perpetual life drainer is back and better than ever. I've reviewed FM2007 on this site, and this is practically the same game with a few new features. This time around, a lot more fuss is made of the fans and their opinions and confidence in you and the players. I like the feature myself, with fans giving feedback on each game. They have also fully improved the match day build up and game by combining and bombarding you with all the information you could need in a few consecutive screens before each match.
