Has a lot of content, but I'm slightly disappointed you can only watch the actual game from above with the players represented as dots....I was hoping of a more 3-D ground level perspective ala Manager Mode in MLB 10 the Show for PSP......oh well....

The dots is the real and ideal view (In my own opinion) to that type of games.... just on spot.

Even on the pc only the last 2 games had 3d...
(As you see not a real fan of the 3d in this game in any version or platform )

FM is a lot more polished than CM or myFC.

To start, it's not limited to the English competitions like CM.

The UI is very clean and easy to navigate.

It's twice the price of CM but I think u get what u pay for.
