    as i ont think its worth to make a new thread, here's my view on cm5 (based on the demo)

    decided to play a game with PSV.

    -the database:
    awful, oh my god, how did they get this. examples:
    -PSV's chairman irl is Rob Westerhof, in CM5 it apparently is Tim Kahn. Riiiiiiiiiiiight
    -Vennegoor of Hesselink is known as a good header, while Farfan is a small technique based player. But, no, CM5 considers Farfan a better header than VoH.
    -PSVs reserves are filled with players in their mid and late twenties and some in their thirties. IRL it are players around 18-20
    -AZ Player Elkhattabi is called El Khattabi in game. Shouldnt be too hard to check.
    -A lot youth players have German names in the Netherlands. CM5 apparently thinks we are germans too

    -They have removed shortcuts (spacebar=continue, f6 takes to squad etc.) annoying
    -exactly 4 people make noise in the crowd
    -way to much injuries
    -so adidas focused, almost every background contains an adidas product

    contracts seem to be too easy, Van Bommel was willing to sign a cotract equal to his current one. IRl he leaves for sure after this season.

    then my first match came there.
    that match engine is very funny. Players move like flies, they move randomly as it seems. then realism, Cocu scores a hattrick from freekicks. All in from the post. I wont start about gk's and own goals, as everybody mentioned them already.

    im now looking to the Costa Rica squad, just after they've been beaten 9-0 in the Copa America. here's the line-up.

    Kovalev in goal: very costa rican name
    Gusharshvili RB: very costa rican name again
    Ronald Gomez and Wanchope form the centre of the defense
    centre midfield contains the likes of Topolski and Zekic
    striker is Lw

    some positive things:
    -ability to choose for 1-20 and 1-100
    and errr......

    I wont get the full game, something i first did want to do.
    I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of freezing cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for letting us work there, and when we got home, our Dad would murder us in cold blood, each night, and dance about on our graves singing "Hallelujah." But you try and tell the young people of today that... and they won't believe ya'.

      Don't waste money on it Cody. It's awful.(Though it does get slightly better with the new patch).

      I think they can only compete with FM next year maybe even more...

            The first time I ran CM 5 on my PC I couldn't even exit the game properly. Had to press ctrl+alt+del to exit it. Says enough I think
