    A great game. Recruiting, trading, training, buying, building, and basically controlling every aspect of a major league baseball team -- short of stepping on the sacrosanct green diamond cathedral itself -- is covered, or at least touched on.
  2. 80
    If you are new to the series, and interested in the off-the-field workings of Major League Baseball, I recommend it wholeheartedly.
  3. Trying to create a winning team through trades and the draft is remarkably compelling. [May 2002, p.90]
  4. The game is so effective at drawing out your inner child that by the midway point of your first simulated season, you'll find yourself longing for a stick of cementlike gum.
  5. Geared toward hardcore baseball fans, but it fails to relay some of the information that many serious fans want.
