Summary: Is there anything that IS realistic about this game, other than some of the players names? Free Agent negotiations is a joke, there are none. You make an offer, and then the player either signs with you or someone else. Heck, if I'm offering Teixeira 170 million, and boston offers him 175, I expect Boras to call me back looking for more money. Instead, if you don't pony up enough, you've got no shot at signing them, and you've no idea how much is enough.
Summary: I was very excited to get this game. I love GM modes in every sports game I get. The opportunity to recreate your team and make the decisions is definately fun. In most baseball games that is what I do since playing 162 games each season is a little much. I probably play 7 or 8 each season and then sim the rest. I thought this game was right up my alley. Though the concept is great, the game limits the fun.
Summary: Clearly MLB Front Office Manager is 2KSports' answer to rival Electronic Arts' NFL Head Coach game (which really is misnamed, as that game is more like NFL General Manager or NFL General Manager + Head Coach combined). Unfortunately, 2KSports' effort is no where near as good or enjoyable as their rivals is.
