CM2 is a football (known as soccer to some of you) management sim. Released fall 1995 as the successor of a fine line of various versions of the original Championship Manager, CM2 soon established itself as the benchmark game for football management sims. And it's still highly popular. Despite the fact that the game consists purely of statistics and tables and no graphics at all, it's extremely addictive, and you cannot avoid not getting hooked if you're a footie fanatic.
Boasting endless features and an enormous depth, CM2 is just like managing an own, personal football team from the comfort of your own living room. Literally every famous and semi-famous player from all around the globe is featured, and it's of course possible to transfer players to and from your squad in your neverending quest for the ultimate line-up.
The game is controlled by solely using the mouse, and the menus don't contain icons or any flashy graphics -- it rather goes for informative and in-your-face text boxes, CM-style. During matches, explanatory text explains you what happens through use of the same text boxes, and you can of course modify your team just like you want to, and use the tactics of your choice. If you find that playing with only the English and Scottish leagues somewhat weakens your interest, you'll be pleased to discover that several foreign add-ons or stand-alone games are available. Once you get addicted, you'll find that you'll spend enormous amounts of time in front of your pc, and you'll get somewhat disappointed when you discover that it's impossible to play any further than 2025. Trust me, I've been there.
This is probably the most addictive game ever. If you're a football fanatic, there's no way you can avoid getting hooked on this game's extreme playability. The version downloadable is the very first game in the CM2 series, and has been patched using the official patch to enhance the overall experience. If you haven't played CM2 before, you should download this game. Incredibly good.
In my opinion, Championship Manager 2 and all the championship manager serie is one of the best management games in the '90s. It has everything that a soccer fan want to see in a management videogame. The level of the game is also adequated to the division you are going to play, in fact it is better starting with a low division team and then receiving offer based on your performance as manager. It has a rich database with all the player (of course of 1995) but it still mantain an appeal that who really love soccer games will not miss.
