Reviews:

Games Domain by Corey Brotherson

"Sports Interactive has taken everything great about the franchise and pumped it up a notch. Stats and rules are all typically updated, the database now holds around 250,000 players in 88 divisions across a maximum of 39 nations, of which you play in as many as you like depending on your PC spec. Thankfully, those with computers that don't quite reach the heights required for most PC titles these days will find solace here - CM 4 will select the best number of leagues and size database suited to your spec, with enough leeway to go over it slightly if you want more football cake than your initial serving."

"When it all comes together, complete with the ever troublesome media, better interaction from the more demanding supporters, the ability to farm off players to other clubs (at the risk of making them feel unwanted - aww), wondrous little touches like sportsmanship and the interface that grows on you faster than expected, it adds up to an insanely addictive experience. There are a few little grievances that have been sorted out via a recently released patch on Sports Interactive's website, but none of the problems are damaging to the pie flavoured authenticity, foot stomping excitement and downright emotional intensity of the gameplay - certainly not enough to mark the game down for."

"So we say this. Once you've finished reading this review, put down your hot cup of cha, get up and calmly walk over to your significant other and apologise. Go on. Get it out of the way. Because once this game has settled into your veins and turned you into a crazed wide-eyed addict, the chances are you wont get the chance to do anything else other than cheer, chant, click and curse your way through one of the most compulsive footballing experiences around. A certified match winner indeed."
