    managerial sports games

    I've seen some managerial type sports games around for both cricket & football but don't know too much about them....

    can anyone give me a low down on what they're about & the better ones to look for - both cricket & football, as I'm also aware that there are different producers (much like the EA v PES for football games)..........

    Cricket - the ICC series is the leader atm, but is out of date.

    Agreed with Marc. FM is miles ahead of TCM... that said TCM isn't bad, merely FM is the greatest PC game ever IMO.
