For the un-initiated, the CM series gives you control of a Soccer club. You have to manage the day - to - day activities of the club. You do not play any matches, but you play the role of a manager. You control team tactics, transfers, etc. You can watch the matches being simulated in 2-D. The game is very addictive. In fact, its the most addictive game ive ever played. If you are a soccer fan, this one is a must try. The latest in the series is Football Manager 05.
