I can't stop playing the new fifa manager, but there is a hell of a lot to improve. Alot of customers will buy this product for its 3d match tool, which hasn't actually been improved. There's alot of faults such as random commentry, offsides given for no reason, freekicks inside the area, penalties given for tackles outside the area, penalties not taken on the spot, goalkeepers catching the ball outside the area. These errors really are essential to the game, and there isn't an excuse really, they shouldn't release the game if it's full of errors. I haven't tried the patch but you shouldnt have to use it really.
There is alot of other things I could pick out, such as lack of transfers in the first season, no reserve league, no conference teams, surely if football manager can add this then why can't fifa manager? there's no restrictions, its just senseless. The scouting system doesnt work properly, I'll scout a player and I'll go to check his information, and he isn't even existent in my scout list. I've seen players being signed who I can't sign because they can't get a work permit, although there moving to the country that I manage in. This could be an amazing game, but there really is a huge, huge amount to improve. These games tend to get better, but this one has actually gotten worse.
Sort it out EA!
