Summary: An excellent General Manager game! Originally rented this from Blockbuster and played it a few days and thought it was so-so. The real fun begins after a few seasons are under your belt and you level up your manager. Developing young talent is also fun, as it could turn out your hot prospect is not so hot or turns out to hit 60 homers a year while being paid 1 million dollars...
Summary: Horrible, horrible, JUST PLAIN HORRIBLE. All you get to do is sit there and give orders out, nothing happens except that you get a bunch of emails from your boss/colleague/whatever and you get to raise/lower player's income, renew contracts, etc. There is no action in this game whatsoever. You can't even watch a game being played (I'll be honest, I wouldn't be saying squat about this game if I had the chance to do that).
Summary: Horrific, horrendous and unplayable at every turn. Menus are clunky, which really subtracts from the game, considering that 90% of the time, you're looking at menus. And the actual baseball is horrid, too. Your starting pitcher, no matter what their stamina, will always last only three to five innings. MLB: The Show is a better baseball front office simulation. Front Office Manager is terr ible. It's sad, too, because FOM had a real chance of being a great franchise.
Summary: This has to be the worst baseball game ever made. While this game offers a lot of depth and statistics, what it doesn't offer is anything worth playing for more than 5 minutes. If your smart, do not buy this game.
Summary: Awful. Great concept but the interface is terrible. Players are not easy to find, way to much info to handle, managing the game is not good either. God I wish I could have my money back. Grrrrr...
Summary: I think that this is a fun game. Yes it will take a while to build a dynasty but this game is all about yoyr farm system. It is very fun. As soon as you win your first championship you keep on winning. I really like the Jappenese bidding part because maost of their players are 80 overall(Highest overall in the game).
Summary: I love the idea of this game, but I could just scream at the person who made it. Picture this: You customize everything yourself. You draft players, cultivate them, set the lineups and rotation. You try to sim and it asks if you want it to automatically take a guy off the DL. You say sure. But the computer doesn't just take the player off the DL. It drops the players you were developing to free agency, and re-organizes your rosters, lineups and rotations at every level.
