The final feature list arrived, i share the ones i find most interesting with you…
Attend a match to better the success of your job application – If you declare interest in a job, and then attend a match, you increase your chances of getting the job for taking an interest, and get a news item talking about your attendance.
Board view on sales and signings – Your club board now give feedback on player sales as well as player purchases
Glenn Hoddle Academy – The addition to the game of the Glenn Hoddle academy, an academy where released UK players can go and get training for up to two years. If you play in the UK or Spanish leagues, you’ll play against their team in a friendly each year. All teams have the opportunity to buy the GHA players at any time, transfer window permitting.
Sugar Daddy expansion – Sugar Daddy is our way of being able to deal with owners who flood money into clubs – we now have different levels of Sugar Daddy for the different types of owner, to make the game even more financially realistic.
Team talks for subs – You can now do team talks for substitutes prior to sending them onto the pitch.
Fancy a hat-trick – If a player has scored 2 goals in a match and his team gets a penalty, he’ll likely be given the ball to take the pen even if he’s not the regular penalty taker.
Team suggestions from the fans – Comments from fans on team selection post match, which tells you who has played well, or what aspect of the team’s play they liked the best.
Press conference overhaul – Huge improvements to press conferences to give more in-situ questions, new signings press conferences, better logic for the order that the questions are asked, questions about transfer rumours etc.
Local media at press conferences – Media source code has been reworked so that local region media sources now appear at press conferences, rather than just those based in the same city as the team.
This is the trailer for Football Manager 2010. Demo is coming next week and i believe millions are looking forward to it.
It will 6 months playable and will be released first on Daily Mirror’s website.
1- Simply fantastic. An excellent game getting better every year.
2- Superb user interface, easy to learn, really hard to master.
3- Assistant advices are really helpful. The advices of the assistant, scouts or any other staff member can be backed up or dismissed. There is a second and third opinion option.
4- More realistic media interface. However press conferences are still boring.
5- 3D Graphic Engine is working much much better. It is a joy to watch the game.
6- Pitchside instructions are working OK. They are hard to master. Shortcuts are not really shortcuts. Again takes time to learn.
7- Galatasaray season expectation is title challenger and in the beginning of the season odds are 6-1. Whereas Beşiktaş and Fenerbahçe are only 2-1.
8- Harry Kewell, Hakan Balta, Mehmet Güven are the wanted players when the game starts. Harry Kewell is willing to leave. When i loaned Mehmet Güven Arda Turan became furious claiming M. Güven was a great asset. Not the most realistic feature.
9- In the first day the assistant offers you to see the team by organising a match with U20 team. I was pretty unlucky in that as i lost 3 players in a training match.
10- In the team talk you can say some new things to players such as “Impress Me”.
11- Transfer budget of Galatasaray is 2,6 million pounds.
12- This game deserves Turkish language option and official Turkish league updates.
I have been playing PES 2010 for a week now. It is the preview version and it is for PC platform.So this is not my final view on this game.
Let me tell you some good some OK and some bad stuff about this franchise.
The user interface, graphical developments are faboulous. The game looks really good and the font type, use of colours are simply amazing.
The version i have does not include UEFA Champions League, Europa League, some visuals are missing in the Master League and also there is no online mode available.
The dribbling system changed in a way. It is more realistic now. However it effects the playability. It is really hard to dribble. The players accelerate more realistically. Again a problem for action lovers. PES 2010 is more of a simulation this time.
The position you play your players effect their ability. If you put a winger to a defensive midfield position he looses quite a big amount of his ability. You see the ability with numbers up to 100. It drops around 10-20 points per player when you misposition them. There is a card and slider system as well. I will write another article or share a video about that. I can tell that you will be spending much more time in formation screens this year.
The loading screen is gone. When you start the match via a “Quit Watching” tab you start to see the stadium you will be playing in. Then comes the players from tunnel and match starts. I have not seen a big improvement in fan animations.
In the version i had the latest transfers were not in place yet. Such as Zlatan in Barcelona.
Be A Legend mode is more detailed. The camera angles are really well implemented. It is a great mode to play this time.
I will continue to update you with my impressions. It is to early to grade this game. Now i wait for FM 2010 review code. I will write down my impressions of that game in the weekend.
Championship manager 2010 is coming soon. The game itself seems to be an improvement but the best features are the Turkish language option and Live Season. With the Live Season function you can start the league whenever you want with the real league table, injury status and fixtures. This makes the game even more realistic.
CM may soon be rivaling FM if the producers have not messed up.
A fine season of football manager games awaits us.
Football Manager 2010 is coming on 30 October. It is announced this afternoon that the game will even be better than FM 2009 which is the best selling sequel of CM and FM Series. It sold more than million copies.
Here are the first improvements from the newsletter:
“The introduction of a Tactics Creator makes it easier to instruct the team to play the way the manager wants, alongside the introduction of touchline ‘shouts’ and quick tactic changes for instantly altering your team’s playing style during the match. Working with coaches from various levels of football, alongside some of the Football Manager communities most respected independent tacticians, the game now has an extensive array of pre-set tactical options allowing the user to select a player’s role in the team (such as ‘Ball winning midfielder’ or ‘Deep lying playmaker’), however the option to use the old ‘slider’ controls remains.
Feedback from matches has been improved to give the user better insight into where their team is going wrong, or right. A new Match Analysis tool lets players see where shots, passes, crosses, headers, tackles, fouls and interceptions have been made on the field for all players on the pitch. Managers can view this analysis both live in-game and post match, allowing them to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of both their team and their opponent’s and adjust their tactics accordingly.
Football Manager 2010 features a brand new User Interface, with a light and a dark skin to choose from as part of a vibrant new look and has undergone a complete navigational overhaul. The side bar navigation of previous years has been replaced by an intuitive tab system at the top of the screen, making Football Manager’s famed depth easier to navigate and will make the game more accessible to new players.
A brand new Data Editor will allow the addition of new divisions to existing leagues and of entirely new leagues as well as making it easier than ever to keep the game up to date, and do so for free. The delivery of information to the manager has been refined with users now able to sign up to the News Centre, an in-game subscription based newspaper that lets you get the news that you want about the football world and filter out the stories that you do not need, making the football world as immersive as you want it to be.
Following the debut of a 3D match view in Football Manager 2009, this year’s release sees a revamp with improved AI, over 100 new animations for the 3D pitch view, new stadiums, crowds, realistic pitch degradation and better lighting, creating an even more realistic match experience.”
