Football Manager 2010 is an overhaul of the system, but I'm still undecided. Given that most of the changes are under the hood, playing it feels like you've just paid £30 for an update that could have been downloaded for free instead. The higher leagues are also much tougher to play in and compete against. Sports Interactive have pointed the series towards a more "hardcore" approach, rewarding those who put in the effort to watch matches in 3D instead of skipping by and taking the plaudits. I'm against developers who churn out yearly updates with little improvement (LMA Manager, Pro Evolution Soccer), but with Football Manager 2010, it almost feels like it justifies another investment.
