Football Mogul 2009 Preview

Football Mogul 2009 is slated for release later on this week. Check out Ben Lewis' detailed hands-on impressions of the game and see what the new version is offering!

"Sports Mogul is scheduled to release the latest version of the much-maligned Football Mogul series at the end of this week, and we here at Operation Sports bring you the first detailed look of the game on the Internet. The new feature list for FM09 is small, since the team is more worried about fixing existing issues; and having seen some of the prior versions, that's likely a good thing. Here’s the feature set, according to the Sports Mogul Web site. The bolded features at the bottom are listed as “new features.”
