This game is a con. I too enjoyed the game at first. So much so, that I purchased the full game, bought the Super Stadium, spent money on club investments many times. Throughout all that you STILL LOSE ALL YOUR MONEY EVERY SEASON. 120,000 crowds at full ticket prices and you STILL LOSE ALL YOUR MONEY EVERY SEASON. This is a con designed to get you to fork out your money to purchase more club investments. You will get your manager, players, facilities all up to 99 and, most of the time, you will be around 10+ points behind the league leaders. My recommended wage limit is £1.75m. In order to achieve that, my squad would have to be around 90% youth players as most 99 rated players will be around £150k+ a week in wages. This, I remind you, is with 120,000 crowds, at full ticket prices. So to summarise. You will achieve everything. 99 rated squad and manager. 99 rated facilities. 120,000 Super Stadium. And you will STILL LOSE ALL YOUR MONEY EVERY SEASON. Unless, of course, you keep forking out your OWN MONEY to purchase club investment. And therein lies the con.
The main issue with this game is the amount of draws. It's not uncommon to play 22 games and have 11 to 12 draws. It's here very easy to predict I am afraid. Best option is to stick to the free game. Pity as this could have been up there with the best. I've now uninstalled the game. Money sucking. That's all it is. Played so many games over the years and I know a money suck when I play one. The developers will tell you to check out official websites and forms etc but it's just bs. You can only do well in this game if you are willing to spend.
Okay, I like this game but there is absolutely no consistency to the results. Win, lose, win, lose, lose, lose, lose, win, win, lose. It doesn't seem to matter how good your team or manager is unless they're rated extremely higher than the rest. The results feel so random. That's an issue. Also what's with your youngsters value being zero for years. Update: Having said that it's a really enjoyable game. You build a team from scratch, at the lowest division & slowly but surely your team gets better & better. Having a better manager really makes a difference, & I've been through many. I've played a hell of a lot now & I've made it to the Championship, so far. You have to watch your expenses, otherwise your go broke. Just don't over spend on players & get the ones you really need, try & get all passing or direct style, including manager.
I have played this game and it is very enjoyable but there a few bugs with it as I have just won back to back premier league titles but my players won't sign a new contact as they want to play for a top 3 side? Fix these bugs and five stars!
Awesome game! More functions than the free version. U get to see your youth team, play in cups, take over other teams, etc. I'm looking forward to getting a team into the premier league and the champions lge!
I have played F.C since the lite version and before the pro p was released. I loved it however I would like to see a bit more ipn regards to chairman activity like having the ability to choose sponsorship on stadium boards to create more revenue and have more in depth financial stats and the ability to be able to negotiate wages more and pay rises rather than except what is given. In regards to price I think.£2 should be enough and the super stadium is over priced at £3.99 the price of a new game but overall its a good game but could do with more to do as a chairman to give it more scope . One thing that bugs me is I get more £0 bids for players than real bids or loan bids it actually ruins the game I've played got my team up to premier league and the whole time the £0 bids for players is about 80% of the time. You should have a negotiate button as well so you can negotiate a price when such bids come in with a cap so you cant ask over a certain price. Also being penalized for saving more than once in a season is a joke .
