good price. heat from me. I'll chance it though and wait for a lower league club to be selling it like previous years.

How does this compare to FM2014? Is it such a big jump?

Me too. Once it hits the magic £20 mark I'm in.

It's quite a big jump from FM14 they've changed quite a few things as well as adding pro zone stats which is really in depth

​Same here as I got FM16 for about £16 just after release from Forest Green Rovers

I missed last years for the first time as it's been getting too in-depth. It's never been more realistic yet maybe for me it lost the fun of being a game. Can't bring myself to play 'classic' as it's almost the devs admitting they needed to provide a more 'fun' mode for most people who have jobs and families and can't spend 30 hours to play each season.

I'm wondering the same thing, I haven't moved on from FM14

For me they need to ditch the useless 3D match engine that no-one uses and go back to basics a bit more and actually create a game that people enjoy playing, fm hasn't changed much since they introduced the 3D matches. IMO its just a yearly DB update that they disguise as a new game...

It all looks very similar i will give you that, but its in the depth that you notice it. I am around a thousand hours in, and painstakingly organise each game for about an hour or so (each to their own, but its how i like to play) and i notice the depth in each iteration which might not be instantly recognisable.

**edit - i still generally skip a season though, so perhaps thats why i notice it more. I am already panicking about letting go of the team in FM2015 that i've had for 15 seasons.

A good pre-order price but I'm going to wait until after release this time when the price will drop further (as it has done in every year previously) and they'll hopefully have ironed out many of the bugs that usually accompany its release. It takes way too long to get through a season now and I don't feel as though I get as much value back from it as I used to.

​30 hours per season!! i usually play extended highlights as want to see how my tactics tweaking goes! having said that. not played it in 2 yeara since liverpool won the double two seasons in a row with me. game too addictive! i have broken free!

the 3d works very well. can see why tactics not working eg crosses not connecting, too much space etc. old days was text commentary... Barnes crosses it to Beardsley.... Goal... was not very good!

good price , voted hot.

Still on cm01/02 - I've tried the newer games (fm2014) and they just dont seem that much fun.

But as there is a linux version now, maybe I will try again.

Im still on 2014 but taken the jump and pre ordered.

Hopefully more fun but time will tell.

Out of interest Ive never pre-ordered before, but I'm guessing on the day of release they send a code through?

I suppose you'll be closer to 50 hours per season with extended! I've still got a lot of love for this franchise. Maybe they will tempt me back over xmas with a steam sale!!

Same as above, I'll buy it as the price is a bargain for how many hours I get out of it but the fun has gone for me, the older games even FM 2012 and older just seemed more enjoyable

Is there no option to just buy a database upgrade each year that will run with your older copy of the game?
I for one would be happy to pay say £10 each year just for that, and then buy a new version of the full game every 4 or 5 years.
