    If you've ever had aspirations of helming a major league team and making any and all decisions about the operations of the club, you'll feel right at home with iOOTP. If you'd rather swing some pine and flash some leather, you're gonna want to look elsewhere.

    iOOTP Baseball 2011 can often be convoluted, but I had tons of fun with it. As a huge baseball fan, I found myself engrossed and entirely addicted by the game. There could be a lot of work to improve the user interface, but that shouldn't deter other baseball fans from picking up and enjoy this game.

    With a great menu system driving the entire game, excellent AI, and the ability to micro-manage almost everything you could dream of in a sports game, it's hard to want anything else of a mobile baseball management sim.

    iOOTP Baseball 2011 is a deep simulation with a lot of gamelife. The basic presentation, and lack of sound hurts the overall impression. You can't go wrong with it though if you are a fan of baseball, and simulation games.
