This game is terrible. Sooo many faults and things that grind my gears, too many to put in here so i will try my best to list as many as think of..
The ME is beyond a joke, players do not respond to any instructions at all, all the AI have to do is defend deep and it is nearly impossible to break them down. The ME in FM12 was perfect, alright it couldn't improve any more, but it still would have worked for the next couple of games, while they worked on a new one and put time and effort into it, which they haven't done with this one!
Team talks, what is the point, every time i get a negative response.
In my Arsenal save, I beat Man U 3-1, completely dominated them, then I lose 9 in a row to lesser teams, how does that work? And before anyone says change the tactic which i did after about 6 games, why should i have to? I beat the best team in the league with the same tactic that loses to Aston Villa 6-1!?!?
In the current save which is in Jan, Wigan are 5th, Man U are 18th and Southampton are 4th, this game does not make any sense. And it's like that in every other save, ofc you expect the odd upset, but it's ridiculous in this game.
All the points above aren't specific to just one save, but to every. Goals are poor, AI does minimal yet still wins, ie. 3 shots on target 2 goals.
They have made this game too hard, now they expect us to analyse the opp. in detail, and spend 30 mins ensuring are tactics are adjusted to the opposition, (which don't work, as i previously stated players just ignore instructions). Why? This isn't a manger training simulator, it's a game, you are suppose to enjoy it and have fun. This game is unfinished the beta was the worst game i have ever played bug wise, and it's still poor.
I have never really brought a FM game this early after release, so i don't know what to expect with improvements, but i hope they make allot of them.
