    Whether you want to just jump right into a game or season, or want to create a league from scratch, Out of the Park ’15 has the ability to do it and once again raises the bar for baseball management simulators. While the 3D effects to need some work, there’s no doubt that this is an awesome simulator for those who want to customize any and every aspect of the game.

    It is too bad baseball is not very popular in Holland, because Out of the Park Baseball 15 is ten times better than it's predecessor.

    It ain’t pretty, it ain’t noisy, it will absolutely piss you off, but that only makes those successes all the sweeter.

    This is a strategy game, but not really by design. It is a very good representation of being a baseball manager; it just happens that being a baseball manager is a pretty good strategy game.

    This is an excellent baseball management sim game. If you're not familiar, you control all of the GM and Manager duties, and have the capability to manage the games real time if you're so inclined. You don't actually hit or pitch the ball, but if you're the type to pick up a console sports game and sim the games while acting as the GM you absolutely need to buy this game now. Expand

    If you are looking for a baseball simulator that is deep and flexible OOTP 15 is the game to get. If you want replay history you can. If you want to play along with the current MLB setup you can. If you want to set up a league using teams from your area you can. Almost anything you can think of creating in regards to baseball you can and then watch the rich history of what you have made grow the more you play. As a fan of baseball...this game never gets old for me. Expand

    I have been playing OOTP since version 3 and this game just gets better and better each year. If you are a baseball nut then this game is for you. The depth and customization are completely unmatched by any other game on the market today. I usually find myself getting tired of playing sports games after a while, but with OOTP I keep playing right up to the release of the next version.

    So if you are looking for a baseball simulator, this is the game for you!

    Out of the Park Baseball is the best baseball game I have ever played. It's not an arcade title, but rather it puts you in the driver's seat of your favorite baseball franchise. Trade players, draft the next superstars, scout foreign countries, call all the shots from dugout, watch how your players develop in the minor leagues and play into the infinite future. The game comes with real players & teams (full MLB 2014 Opening Day rosters plus complete minor leagues, and also 7 international leagues with real players / teams) and also every season in MLB history (1871-2013) which you can replay or start your alternate history with. On top of that, you can create fictional leagues or combine any type of league in your own baseball universe. The possibilities are endless! Expand

    Amazing game. The possibilities are endless with the ability to create your own league from scratch. Any true baseball fan will appreciate the in-depth features of this game. The staff on the OOTP team are very active in their forums and also listen to their gaming community. This game is a must have for anyone who enjoys managing a ball club. Expand

    Great game, Im a Football Manager 2009-2014 junke and this game has competed quite nicely for my gaming time. My gaming day dreams have definitely drifted towards OOTP.

    If your into baseball, into sports management or sports simulations, this will nicely surprise you and generally available at reasonable pricing.

    I wont give the game a ten because their are bugs and its definitely not perfect but as far as sport simulations Ill add it into the evolutionary chain and say its a great addition.

    I've purchased OOTP several times, and always loved it. Yes, it can be like playing a spreadsheet, but there are times that's exactly what I want to do. (My 9 back to back championships in the European Baseball League with the Paris Blues attest to that fact.) OOTP 15 gets a lot of points for its baseball simulation, which is excellent. It immediately loses them because it crashes all the time! Literally more than any game I have ever seen, including ArmA 2 (which was a disaster at launch). Normally, my procedure is to start a fictional league and simulate a hundred years or so of history to give the league some "meat" (hall of fame players, records to break, historical dynasties, and so on). Typically, that takes a few hours. OOTP 15 seems to crash at least every three or four seasons, meaning that before I finally gave up it had taken me hours of running the thing to get from 1900 to 1930. I hate to say it, but until it's fixed, the game simply isn't worth its price. Expand
