    Over a hundred years of baseball covered, Baseball Mogul is a must-have for all fans of America's favorite pastime.
  2. An incredibly deep game that could be a great offering if it would go even deeper. In the meantime, though, the game is handicapped by a computer AI as unreliable as Tanyon Sturtze on three days’ rest.
  3. We've always been major supporters of this series, but it's time for the developers to inject some new life into it. [July 2004, p.75]
  4. Sports Mogul has adjusted aspects of the artificial intelligence to make play more satisfying in key areas like trading and finance and has tossed in a few sorely needed frills that make the game at least a marginal improvement over its predecessor.
  5. For the true baseball fan, Baseball Mogul makes a great supplement to any action-based baseball game. For any other gamer it's a great learning experience whether you like baseball or not.

    A great game for those just coming to the genre, but for hardcore gamers who still have BBM2K3, don't waste your money on this year's version as it's practically an exact clone. Expand

    If the previous versions were between 8-10, this one is terrible. the scouting reports are way off reality. the salaries are off reality as well.

    This game is basically the same game as last year's, except the scouting is horribly inaccurate and all stadiums have been equalized. Whatever happened to unique ballparks? Expand

    Inaccurate scouting and salaries bring this game down.
