Soccer Gaming has posted their review of Championship Manager 5, giving it a 7 out of 10.
"For months and months, ever since the announcement was made that Eidos and Sports Interactive would be working together on Championship Manager no longer, I, like thousands of other fans of the CM series worldwide, have been wondering what Eidos, along with their new partner Beautiful Games Studios, would come up with. After all, all the designs, databases, engines etc were property of SI, so in essence, Eidos and BGS had to come up with a completely new game, almost from scratch. Naturally this made us all very nervous, many people expecting a bug-ridden piece of rubbish, so totally inferior to SIís new Football Manager 2005 that it would pretty much remove Eidos from the management sim stage forever. Many people were more confident, expecting Eidos to produce a game where all the problems, and there were many, of the previous CMís were removed. Well, there was only one way to find out, and that was by playing the game."
