    i just wandered as i might get it someone for a presant, i think it will, as its not exactly graphical and championship manager runs well on the iMac at the moment but he's very board of that game:)
    Thanks

    I don't have any experience personal with FootBall Manager so I can't say for sure. Looking at the system requirements it does not look good.

    System Requirements: MAC
    OSX 10.2
    600MHz Power PC G4 (1.8GHz G5 recommended)
    256MB RAM
    1024x768 Monitor
    650MB HDD space

    Download the demo from here and see how well that runs on your iMac this will give you a good idea whether the game is playable on your system or not.

    thanks for your help guys, i never look at system requirements, people have different views on how well a game will run

    Sorry to say but it absolutely won't run on a G3 iMac. I run it on my iBook (see sig) and the speed is only just tolerable.

    As my G4 struggles to play it in anything like an acceptable fashion, the experience on a G3 iMac is going to be insufferable. The fact that it recommends a G5 says all you need to know.

    wouldnt bother with your iMac g3 even if you manage to get it to run it will be a slug and utterly tedious to play,

    May I add a comment, although it's about FM2006 (6.02) running on an imac g5 (see signature). For some reason, it runs much better than FM 2005 on the same machine.

    Oh, and I think should take system recommendations seriously...you might be wasting your money otherwise.
