    The single most brilliant, most thorough, most customizable baseball management game in existence.
  2. If you like baseball and a challenge, Out of the Park Baseball 10 will be your game of choice. Getting past the initial difficulty rewards the player in a way that few other games can.
  3. I walked into Out of the Park X as a complete neophyte and came out rather impressed. Everything was easy to understand, if a little daunting at first. It's not the kind of game you can really get a handle on after dabbling in it.
  4. It's truly rewarding to see your tactical decisions pay off (and devastating to see a tight lead blown). [Dec 2009, p.77]
  5. Out of the Park Baseball X is the most lifelike edition yet of this number-crunching baseball simulation.
  6. 80
    It takes a specific type of micromanager to enjoy what the forty-dollar download brings to the table, but if you can get your head around the complex menus and grandiose management duties you’ll find an extraordinarily deep baseball simulation running under the hood.
  7. For anyone looking to get into baseball management sims, Out of the Park Baseball 10 is a perfectly fine place to begin getting to grips with the complexities and steep learning curve of the sub-genre.

Get as deep into your created baseball universe as you feel comfortable with.Sometimes I play out each game, sometimes just from the last couple of innings. Sometimes I will sim days or weeks if I think my team can cope without being micro managed. Excellent game....second to none. Expand

    I've been playing OOTP since version 4. The first time I played it I thought it was the perfect baseball sim available on the market. I've been playing OOTP since version 4. The first time I played it I thought it was the perfect baseball sim available on the market. And it was. But it just gets so much better with every new release that it's unbelievable. If you're a fan of baseball, and are interested in the idea of managing your own franchise on the greatest scale possible, there's no substitute for OOTP. Do yourself a favour and try OOTP today. They're so confident you'll like it that they're giving OOTP 8 away for free! That's a great game and I paid $40 for it 2 years ago! Overall I'd say I've put in at least 1000 hours of gameplay into OOTP over the last 6 years. You won't be disappointed. Expand

    An outstanding sports management sim that will have baseball enthusiasts and stats-hungry fans drooling over their keyboards. I wasAn outstanding sports management sim that will have baseball enthusiasts and stats-hungry fans drooling over their keyboards. I was pleasantly shocked by the way that this game sucked me in, had me screaming at the computer screen as my 22 year old phenom pitcher blew out his arm and was lost for an entire season, had me cheering at the solo shot walk-off home run that sent my team into the playoffs. Aspiring GMs look no further--OOTP 10 is far and away the best in its class, rivaling the depth and richness of the other front-runner in this genre, Football Manager 2009 by Sports Interactive.

    Absolutely awesome baseball simulation. Every detail of real life major league baseball is covered, and with this new version, it even has Absolutely awesome baseball simulation. Every detail of real life major league baseball is covered, and with this new version, it even has individual pitch ratings for starters and relievers. By GM'ing a team in OOTP X, you gain a realistic insight into how a real life GM makes roster decisions and trades. It is that realistic. Since every detail is covered, you'll come to understand how arbitration works, the rule 5 draft, waivers, the 40-man roster, player development, drafting, scouting, etc. Definitely a must have if you are a baseball fan. With hundreds of online leagues, you'll be able to GM a team up against other people, and make trades with real human GM's. Definitely worth the price. Expand

It's also the second worse since it has almost no competition. 6 months into the latest release and major bugs still abound.

    And don't you dare bring any problems you have with the games to the boards. With major jerks like Maleis Dei and The Wolf out there to act like INTERNET TUFF GUIZ, and raving fanbois who won't take any critisism lightly, the few helpful board members are quite outnumbered.
