It's just wildly addicting, I honestly can't tell you why I play so much. It's a well done game with probably too much depth to the gameplay, so it takes a while to make progress. It's kind of like sim city for your football club of choice. Just build it up and watch it, really not much satisfaction comes from the game. Just can't stop playing
I'd never heard of it until a few months ago and bought FM12, it had a bit of a learning curve and it took me about a month to actually get into it. Starting with a small club is not easy at all. Wage bills are small and transfer funds are $0. Takes a lot of loans and finding value in scouted players. Playing with a big club is kind of easy. fm 13 is a nice upgrade, I've built a dynasty with bayern in my 5 year
I have been an avid Fifa Manager fan since FifaM07. I have played every single edition. I am thinking about getting FifaM13. I prefer FifaM because I get the player mugshots and the original club crests etc. little details. I've heard FM is a better game but never got around to trying it.
