Summary: This is a great game for those who want to exercise their managerial skills. Although I don't play it my husband says that one thing the would like to have seen is more opportunities to personalize.
Summary: Let me start out by saying that this game is not bad by any means. The reason for the two one rankings is that gameplay and graphics are virtually non-existent. Any gamer that is looking for a simple fun and relaxing sports game should definitely look elsewhere, like what's recommended below. To enjoy this game you have to be willing to invest long periods of time in it. This game requires a lot of strategy and judgement rather than pure skill and luck.
Summary: This is a game with a very specific target player and a very different playstyle. Think fantasy baseball in console form. The focus on the game is organization and strategy to win games, not actually stepping in and playing them. I mention fantasy baseball because the object is to build a solid team through roster moves (trades, free agents, waivers, etc.) and micromanaging your team on every level.
Summary: For the first Baseball simulation, it's not too bad. Reading some of the other reviews, mainly about the free agent negotiating, they nailed it! It can get pretty frustrating, not knowing when the player you're going after gives you no feedback about the contract offer. Then bam! He signs with another team. The menus could definitely be done better, and they could immerse you better in the actual league, which would make the game more enjoyable.
