Summary

Developed by Gusto Games, the best-selling football management simulation is back with Championship Manager 2007 (CM2007). Of course, this latest version in the Championship Manager series is the most extensive yet, and the 2007 version delivers more countries, leagues (including the introduction of English Conference North and South) and trophies than ever before. Player and club data in CM2007 is accurate up to the closing of the August 2006 transfer window.

The CM series has always given the player total control over pretty much every area of being a manager of a football club. This can range from selecting the best possible team for an upcoming match to asking the board to expand the stadium to taking a training session. The game will have all the features you’d expect from a Champ Man game. However, the boys at Eidos have made numerous additions to CM2007. The game has a different look to its predecessor, with new skins, menu shortcuts and a dynamic side bar. International football management makes a welcome debut on Championship Manager 2007. Gamers can try and succeed where Sven Goran Eriksson failed with England at the 2006 World Cup.

An innovative new Match Analysis Tool is present, which will reveal statistical information with regards to every footballer and every game, including: goals scored, runs made and shots/passes/tackles made or failed. Managers will now be able to praise and criticise players in a brand new team talks feature. It is now possible to give individual instructions to players pre-match or at half time. You can, if you want, even receive staff feedback on performances. There have also been various improvements made to transfers, negotiations, news, media and pre-match build up. The AI system used in the game has been greatly refined when compared to its predecessor.

Championship Manager 2007 is probably the most fun you could have at pretending to be a football manager without wearing a sheepskin coat.
