Reviews:

GameSpot by Jon Evans

"Champ Man 01/02 wins another trophy. The enhancements to the scouting system, media and player interaction are all welcome. And the data is as thoroughly researched as ever, standing head and shoulders above the rest."

"Dealing with different character personalities, media interest and meddling chairmen is all part of being a modern football manager and no game comes close to matching the way Sports Interactive has incorporated such issues into the 01/02 version of Championship Manager. Players can go AWOL if they don't like their team-mates, or feel they've been treated unfairly, and dressing room unrest can adversely affect performance. The game nudges further ahead of the opposition thanks the realism of its matches. A number of statistical screens relay information about how the team and each individual is performing. Text-based commentary also provides hints as to how good or bad players are doing. This constant supply of information gives you everything you need to make tactical decisions about formation, style and substitutions. The mark of a good football management game is that you feel you can genuinely influence a result through the decisions you make and Champ Man 01/02 does this better than any other. By contrast, while the 3D match highlights of games like FA Premier League Manager 2002 and Director Of Football look great, they fail to deliver all the relevant information needed to make tactical decisions."

GameSpy

"Sports management games never receive major awards -- there's usually a token text game included with the usual list of EA Sports products like FIFA and Madden, but nobody really takes these games seriously. Championship Manager, arguably the finest sports simulation product ever created, has finally won the accolades it deserves, and we're not a European-based gaming site where football (or soccer) is king. It appears that an international coalition has propelled Championship Manager 01/02 to PC sports' game of the year honors."

"The series includes players and teams from every major and minor soccer federation that exists. It is the ultimate career game. Championship Manager almost single-handedly invented the off of the field dynamic world that exists in career text games. All sorts of training, scouting, and adjusting to off of the field events can affect how your team succeeds or fails on the field. Statistical accuracy is made possible by a dedicated Sports Interactive staff that spends countless hours researching the key soccer characteristics."
