Championship Manager 2008 review

  • Best version to date
  • Match engine looks better than ever
  • Highly accessible
  • Struggles with real-time action
  • Annoying glitches
  • A little too easy

Nov 7, 2007

The Championship Manager healing process continues. However, while this year’s version once again shows improvement, the game still feels as though the series is suffering from some kind of split-personality disorder.

On one hand, CM08 is an accessible and entertaining football management game, requiring minimal tactical tweaking and allowing you to enjoy an experience free from overbearing micromanagement. It’s also a game that’s trying to compete with Football Manager, featuring an ever-expanding collection of leagues and a superb, hardcore match analysis tool called ProZone, which allows you to study games in exhaustive detail.
