  1. Baseball Mogul 2008 is absolutely great at what it does – a fantasy baseball simulator that lets you call all the shots for your team, from trades, lineups, and other GM and Manager duties. The simulator itself is extremely fast, accurate, and realistic with tons of ways to tweak if you find yourself needing to do so.

    No other game comes close to the major league statistical detail offered in this addictive simulation of our national pastime. [Sept 2007, p.60]
  3. Combining the stats demanded by baseball gearheads with great ease of use, Baseball Mogul 2008 hits the ball and touches 'em all.

    It is limited in scope, but this makes it perfect for those with limited experience with similar products or gamers who are looking for a more casual baseball management title, while also making it a difficult recommendation for the more ambitious player.
  5. It can be addictive, will have you second-guessing yourself, will elicit growls of frustration when your bullpen can’t get a single out and turns a winning proposition into a losing affair – you know, all the things that make a real baseball game fun to watch.
  6. In the end, Baseball Mogul 2008 is a very satisfying baseball experience, just not on the field but rather from a general manager’s perspective. The lack of action isn't for everyone, but for the baseball nerd, it offers hours and hours (and hours and hours …) of engrossing simulation style gaming.

    Much easier than rivals. A good introduction to the baseball GM genre. Troubled AI can make the game easy however.
