This final update to Championship Manager 3 series was, and still is, one of the most popular editions to date. It was also the first title to make a short trip onto console.
A vastly-improved match engine, commentary and computer manager intelligence was added in addition to a new scouting feature giving the ability to get in-depth analysis on your opposition including their key players and team tactics throughout the season. CM 01/02 also built on the previous games realism, implementing the new EU-regulated transfer system, introduced in real world football in September 2001.
It also featured an attribute masking mode, whereby players could only see information about footballers he or she would realistically know about. So in order to find complete sets of stats about other potential stars, a manager would need to scout that player, team or region and when detailed profiles and histories for more than 100,000 players, managers, and coaches are included, that makes for an immense search.
