The game received generally positive reviews upon release. The game received an aggregate score of 87% from GameRankings based on 13 reviews.[1] stated "Championship Manager is, just like real football, endlessly frustrating... But, just like real football, can also be really, truly, utterly fantastic. Electrifying. A hoot".[3] Eurogamer noted "it’s one of the most insanely alluring gameplay experiences ever".[2] While commented "There is one enhancement - the joypad rumbles when a goal is scored. Woopee-freakin-do. And they've also included the new FIFA transfer regulations, so you now only get specific transfer windows. But it's hardly an enhancement that really improves your experience... Still a great game".[3]
