MLB Front Office Manager

True achievements
5 March 2009
  • Conclusion: My simulated record at the end of the season? 48-114. So much for speed never goes into a slump. The game has easy enough achievements- all you have to do is win with certain teams- and people have done it. But you are kidding yourself if you think this game is going to be fun. This is the All in Poker of Sports Games.

MLB Front Office Manager (Xbox 360) Review

411mania.com
28 February 2009
  • Excerpt: I’ll admit it right up front: I’m a sports stats geek. I love fantasy basketball, baseball and occasionally hockey, and I am a HUGE fan of the Championship Manager franchise of (REAL) football management sims. When I read about MLB Front Office Manager (FOM) I knew I had to have it and review it, mainly because very few other writers would be able to give it a fair shake.

WorthPlaying
22 February 2009
  • Summary: MLB Front Office Manager lets gamers do everything a real-life baseball GM can do to develop a team from Spring Training through a full MLB season, into the playoffs and the World Series. Using Major League teams and players, gamers will create their own fictional baseball universe and build their reputation into elite status.

  • Conclusion: The market out there for this type of game is too small to warrant its creation. I think the little success NFL Head Coach from EA got made 2K think this might be a good idea, but the number of choices on the field, the better structure of the off-season and the smaller learning curve made that a much easier game to tolerate.

  • Excerpt: Fair or not, MLB: Front Office Manager is going to be compared to NFL Head Coach 09. Both are a part of the relatively niche market of console sports "text" simulations; each places "on the field play" behind managing contracts and executing trades; and both of these games invariably and critically depend on their user interface and realistic simulation results.
  • Pros: Relatively in-depth console text-sim., Quick and slick managing mode., Scouting and media segments are unique.
  • Cons: MENUS!, Relatively dry and boring presentation., Some strange A.I. behavior and stats.

MLB Front Office Manager Review

GameSpot
4 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Sports management simulations have finally hit the big time. After years of indie obscurity, at least in North America, the genre has finally been hauled into the mainstream by EA Sports and 2K Sports. But don't schedule a parade just yet. EA's NFL Head Coach series has gone through some growing pains over the past couple of years, and now 2K Sports' MLB Front Office Manager is off to a shaky start.
  • Pros: Impressive depth for a console-centric sports management sim, Good presentation values
  • Cons: Absolutely abysmal interface, Complete lack of personality when dealing with player transactions, AI managers regularly make bizarre decisions
