I literally could not wait for the arrival of the new installment of FM. I'd previously played the previous installments of the game to death, especially 08 and 10. I was expecting great things from this game, but have to say I'm disappointed with the result.
As somebody on here mentioned, the attention to detail seems to have slipped this year and something seems chronically wrong with this years FM.
Man City spend millions upon millions in real life, yet stars such as Balotelli and Kolorov and available on a FREE 6 months into the game. Whilst City are obviously splashing the cash, trying to offload them for free 6 months down the line is ridiculous
Alongside this, there is an issue with contracts. Teams seem unwilling to offer new contracts to their stars and at the end of the season searching under 'Unattached' leaves you looking at a wealth of talent, who in turn seem happy to sign for anybody. Proving unrealistic. Yes Sol Campbell went to Notts County in real life and Craig Bellamy went on loan to Cardiff, but is Pato going to Sporting Gijon for free in November having had no interest in him for 5 months since his contract expired. Very strange.
Hopefully they'll be a patch to solve these problems because it seems a sloppy effort from the guys this year.
I'm one the series' biggest fans, but this year I am very disappointed.
Save your cash and wait for next years version, if not, just grab a copy of FM10 and try to ignore it being a year out of date.

This game is still easily better than FIFA, the gameplay and realism simply beats all prior FIFA titles hands down.
Ok, people moan about the liscencing, but hey, does it really make much difference when the game is simply better than FIFA? Gameplay or Kits, easy choice in my opinion.
As for the online play and moans of 'Laaaggggg', simply don't play against people from Central Europe, or even worse, the USA. Stick to playing against people from the UK and the game is lag-free.
Overall, 4/5, some slight niggles let it down, but still the best footy game available.
