Football Manager 2009 News Post

Worthplaying has posted the demo for Football Manager 2009. There is a small and large version, not sure what the difference is.

Quote:
"The Football Manager match engine is being brought into full 3D with motion captured animations for each player, developed in conjunction with SEGA’s in-house studio, Sports R&D Division. You can now watch your matches in 3D from multiple camera angles, and can re-watch any part of the match by fast forwarding and rewinding the action using a new match time bar that flags the key moments in the game. There is also a new full screen TV view, where players can customise their match view by choosing the information they would like to view during the match, be it the latest scores or player performance stats for the match, and arranging this information onscreen using a new drag-and-drop widget system, that lets players customise their match day screen with the information that they need as a football manager."

The small version just has the Scottish and English Leagues, the larger one has most of the big European leagues.

I downloaded the demo via Steam It's a nice and easy download so no worries there.

My impressions of the demo so far:

-You should run the game on windowed mode with lower resolution or the game will freeze right before you play your 1st game. It happened to me already

-You get to conduct interviews with the media which is a nice touch

-The interface remains the same which is good

On the SI forums, there have been reports of lots of injuries and SI is working on a patch before the game is released at full retail.

I will probably wait anyhow for the new game to come

Anyone else having the Mac Strawberry version not start up? It installed fine, but I got a gray screen for about ten minutes and the game did not start up. On 2008, it took a bit to start up, but never that long.

I'm pissed that the ****ed with the tactics, it's so extremely dumbed down compared to FM08. I'll try the demo longer, but I'm seriously thinking about sticking with FM08.

I completely agree. My tactic from 08 didn't translate well. I can't move the arrows for my wingers to direct them into the box.

This makes me not want to play the demo at all and just continue with 08, especially considering you can get a pretty up to date database.
