About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

A deeper more thorough database (with officially licensed leagues, teams and players), as well as improved tactical realism in a stunning 3D world will allow for a more realistic management experience. An all-new 3D highlights package (PC only) is also included to allow the manager to view key moments in the game.

TCM's all new hi-res interface, player stat system and key game modes such as 'Create a Club' (PC only) further push the boundaries of football management simulation.

Key features

  • Realism and Authenticity – The new database initiative is on track to deliver the deepest and most accurate data we have ever offered in TCM.
  • Player skills are now out of 0-99 instead of –1 to +2. This allows the manager to assess players with more depth on each of their skills. (PC only)
  • 30 different stats per player as opposed to 16 in TCM 2004. (PC only)
