    Was really tossing up buying the game as didn't have any particular saves planned. Have 1000+ hours on FM21 (and similar numbers for FM18/20) and thought that the game didn't look different enough from the previews. I was shocked when I played the game and noticed so many new features/UI updates. The data analysis update makes the analytics easier to understand and provides more precise information on how you your players/team follows your tactics, its even really fun just going through in depth and finding hidden details. In terms of gameplay, I don't have a great understanding of the engine, but my first reactions are it looks more and more like your team is actually playing football and its not just the same 8 or so different highlight packages that FM can often feel like. The Centre Backs is where I've noticed the greatest difference, not just with the new Wide Centre Back role (which is a lot of fun to mess around with) but even with Ball Playing Defenders actually making runs forward like you'd see in a real game and not just mulling round on the ball before launching a long ball into space. Finally if you like doing the small stuff like attending press conferences and team talks, the dialogue feels a lot more randomized/unique this year (so far). Overall, if you love FM, 22 provides so much more than just a roster update, and you're bound to notice the subtle changes in details that make all the difference.

    If I was to compare this game to FM21... + The introduction of the Data Hub provides a better way of judging whether your tactic is working, comparing your players with the rest of the league, and analysing the opposition. + Dynamic youth ratings are huge for long-term build-a-nation saves, as the quality of youth players will change depending on the nation's standing. + Scouting regions have been split up, allowing you to assign scouts to more specific areas of a continent. - Avatar customisation looks to have gotten worse. The beards are laughably bad, and look like they were done using the airbrush in MS Paint. If you have a mind for analytics, like to do build-a-nation saves, or just want the database update, I would absolutely recommend picking up FM22. If you only use plug-and-play tactics, are a casual player, and/or are tight for cash, then maybe stick with FM21 as it is still a good game.

    I've enjoyed playing the game for the last 2 weeks, not a lot has changed from last years release but i wasn't expecting much change, i just enjoy the updated teams and player improvements. 1 thing i am NOT happy with is the in game editor has almost DOUBLED in price, company greed makes me sick. in my opinion this isn't aimed at new comers as i truly believe they wont even know about the in game editor at first, nooo this is aimed at us lot, the loyal fan base who return year after year. 50p increase, fine... but an almost 50% increase is filth. This isn't about the price as the IGE is still quite cheap, but nothing new has been added to it, nothing has changed from the last decade, so why that much of a price jump .. imagine next years release, and the full game costs £72, would we be happy with that? maybe i woke up on wrong side on bed today but this has annoyed me hahaha

    Been playing FM for about 15 years and as always it is a great game and i'll always get several hundred hours out of the game as a minimum, but please for love of god like I have said every year for the last 5 update the UI & UX. The game itself is superb It is so cluttered, and the graphical parts of the game are more fitting of 2011, not 2021. The regen & manager faces are still awful (despite Miles wearing them as some sort of badge of honor - they look terrible) and the backgrounds on the stadiums just ruin any visual aspect of the game. Neither of those would take huge amounts of resources to improve but make a massive difference. There is a huge modding community (that SI continues to make life difficult for) that do a much better job than SI and they all do it for free anyway. As for the menus, they are 5 years out of date - there are several things you have to go through many menus to get too when 1 click would do a job. It would not hurt them to strip it back and make the menus simpler, and group the information inside that. For several years now they have just added new features ontop of the current menus and it makes them cluttered and unorganised. I would be happy if FM23 consisted of absolutely no improvements, just a major UI / UX redesign, it would make such a difference. The little gripes: The price range feature is stupid and once again just adds more layers to an already cluttered UI/game. It just gives you more information than you need. The squad/transfer menus are so buggy and haven't changed for 10 years, anybody that has tried to create their own squad/transfer view will know what I am talking about. It is like it's only mini game inside the game just trying to rearrange the views. Overall the game is superb and the best football game by a long way, but it is starting to feel like a game where they have added 10 years of updates on top of a game, instead of making a new game. The game is cluttered and you have too much information that you just don't need. A proper UI/UX redesign next year please SI.

    It's 2051. LOSC Lille are playing in the final of the Coupe de France, a competition they haven't won for 4 decades. 5 years ago, they were in Ligue 2. Yet here they are, in the final of a major competition after so long. It's tied, 0-0. The opposition, perennial title contenders Olympique Lyonnais, had dominated the match up until star midfielder Alexandru-Mihai got sent off in the 69th minute. Since then, it's been in deadlock, no side offering much offensively. LOSC striker Koutan gets a strike chalked off in the 84th for offside, and now it's in extra time. It passes quickly, no chances either side. That is, until the 119th minute of 120. Pierre Gicquel was born in Lille in 2033. For all his 17 years, he'd loved the club. His parents recalled the glory days of the club to him, culminating in title glory in 2021. His entire life, he'd dreamed of being the one to restore his club to greatness, to have the captain's armband while carrying the team to national, even worldwide, glory. From a young age, the staff at LOSC knew he was special, even being touted as the next Kylian Mbappe. Small, a mere 5'7, but incredibly agile, he started out as a striker but quickly found his place as a winger. He tore up every youth division he played in. Now, here he is, 17 and it's his first professional season for the club. Gicquel has played a big part in the team's first title challenge since 2021, but to start the cup final, he was on the bench. With the minutes winding down in extra time, LOSC's Dutch winger Ibrahim Jabbie was exhausted, and there was an obvious choice waiting in the wings. Gicquel stepped on the pitch, and if the weight of a city was on his shoulders, he didn't show it. It's the 119th minute. There's 1 minute of added time. It's the last attack of the game. Gicquel and right-back Balek are exchanging passes on the wing. Suddenly, a hole appears. Gicquel sees it, and swiftly dodges inside before the defenders can react. He cuts to the edge of the box. He's on his weaker left foot. He doesn't care. He's 25 yards out. He doesn't care. All he cares about is this city, this stadium, the one he grew up in the shadow of. The stadium whose visitors now all stare at him in awe. This club, the one he's been sitting in front of the TV, watching, supporting, following, for every day of his life. Pierre Gicquel strikes the ball. Everyone in the building knows where it's going. Top corner. Completely unsaveable. Gicquel became a LOSC legend that day. Everyone knows that someday he might grow up, he might leave, he might even force his way out. None of that matters. On one sunny day in May 2051, football was the winner, and Gicquel was its vessel. Perhaps it's just a game. But in that fateful moment, that game changed lives, and gave the world a story to be told for generations to come.

    FM is now FIFA. It's clear that SI are investing as little development into each edition as they can get away with. Comments elsewhere have suggested that the fair solution (for gamers) would be releasing a patch every season with an update of players rather than a whole new game. As can be seen, I've given plenty of hours to this edition so I think it's fair to say that these observations are based on a significant amount of experience with the game. 1) Transfers. With each edition, this gets more and more skewed in favour of the AI. You will rarely if ever sell a player for close to their valuation, yet any attempts to purchase an AI player for less will be rejected. The loan system is even worse, with negotiations only possible on your loanees, not on an AIs. 2) ME. The match engine hasn't improved and with every patch, something changes to ruin your previously developed tactic. There was a brief moment when FM22 came out that strikers finished one on ones, but that was clearly too realistic for SI so that was 'fixed'. Also good luck defending against the inevitable 30 yard effort from the opposition player who hasn't scored all season... 3) Other: The game is riddled with annoying little flaws; the board scores are ridiculous, the inability to negotiate objectives is infuriating and a backwards step from previous versions... don't even get me started on the "dynamic youth rating"! In conclusion, I don't feel I can recommend this game anymore. I've had every edition since the switch to FM and it is without a doubt that there has been little actual improvement in the way the game plays. Yes, there's been "new features", though the usefulness of the analysis is dubious given the inevitability of some of the match engine gameplay. Unless FM23 offers a radical overhaul and massive improvement in the areas above, I think my time playing this game is over and that is one of the saddest realisations a gamer can have!

Gicquel and right-back Balek are exchanging passes on the wing. Suddenly, a hole appears. Gicquel sees it, and swiftly dodges inside before the defenders can react. He cuts to the edge of the box. He's on his weaker left foot. He doesn't care. He's 25 yards out. He doesn't care. All he cares about is this city, this stadium, the one he grew up in the shadow of. The stadium whose visitors now all stare at him in awe. This club, the one he's been sitting in front of the TV, watching, supporting, following, for every day of his life. Pierre Gicquel strikes the ball. Everyone in the building knows where it's going. Top corner. Completely unsaveable. Gicquel became a LOSC legend that day. Everyone knows that someday he might grow up, he might leave, he might even force his way out. None of that matters. On one sunny day in May 2051, football was the winner, and Gicquel was its vessel. Perhaps it's just a game. But in that fateful moment, that game changed lives, and gave the world a story to be told for generations to come.

    FM is now FIFA. It's clear that SI are investing as little development into each edition as they can get away with. Comments elsewhere have suggested that the fair solution (for gamers) would be releasing a patch every season with an update of players rather than a whole new game. As can be seen, I've given plenty of hours to this edition so I think it's fair to say that these observations are based on a significant amount of experience with the game. 1) Transfers. With each edition, this gets more and more skewed in favour of the AI. You will rarely if ever sell a player for close to their valuation, yet any attempts to purchase an AI player for less will be rejected. The loan system is even worse, with negotiations only possible on your loanees, not on an AIs. 2) ME. The match engine hasn't improved and with every patch, something changes to ruin your previously developed tactic. There was a brief moment when FM22 came out that strikers finished one on ones, but that was clearly too realistic for SI so that was 'fixed'. Also good luck defending against the inevitable 30 yard effort from the opposition player who hasn't scored all season... 3) Other: The game is riddled with annoying little flaws; the board scores are ridiculous, the inability to negotiate objectives is infuriating and a backwards step from previous versions... don't even get me started on the "dynamic youth rating"! In conclusion, I don't feel I can recommend this game anymore. I've had every edition since the switch to FM and it is without a doubt that there has been little actual improvement in the way the game plays. Yes, there's been "new features", though the usefulness of the analysis is dubious given the inevitability of some of the match engine gameplay. Unless FM23 offers a radical overhaul and massive improvement in the areas above, I think my time playing this game is over and that is one of the saddest realisations a gamer can have!
