    I have CM 2006 on the PSP and have ordered FM 2006 also for the PSP, in your opinions what is the major difference between the two. At the moment I am finding many small irritating points with CM, ie some players are too easy to buy, some players nationalities are wrong etc. So can someone please give me a good comparison of the two, I like CM but the little faults do irritate me a lot.

    thanks in advance

    CM's biggest flaw is in fact the database. I wouldn't know about the engines it uses, though. Haven't played the PSP game. The PC game was a piece of crap altogether, but the PSP could have seen some improvements.

    Well those minor and major bugs, you won't find them as much in FM.

    CM was as much 3 dimensional as FM. SI just never mentions it, mainly because they haven't gotten playerheight working right. BGS don't even use it, so what's the use of over-mentioning it? Just marketing.

    CM5 is a woeful game, and CM for the PSP isnt much better. What i would say is that we are terribly biased, you'd be best asking this question in a CM forum aswell, and see what they tell you.

    However, CM is a terrible game.

    I won't comment on rival games but the impression I get is you want to know about FM for the PSP ...

    FM PSP is a brand new game which uses modules from our prior games for AI etc. to ensure its as realistic as possible, it also uses the PC games database.

    The game itself is akin to our third series of Football Management games and is realistic to play, but somewhat faster than the FM2006 on PC meaning you can blast through a season with a few hours play if you so desire.

    Hope this helps,

    Marc
