  1. The game is great, an improvement over yet another stellar OOTP product.
  2. Expands on nearly every aspect of the series. The new game provides much more information than previous versions, so you feel more in control of your club.
  3. Remains the best game on the market for simulating fictional leagues and playing in a multiplayer league with friends, but after five versions, it's time to focus more on fixing what's broken rather than adding more features. [July 2003, p.86]

    Remarkably deep when it comes to gameplay... Beware of the load times, though, they can be bad.

    The only reason it isn't a 10 is because of some lingering bugs that have kept me from expanding my league. But the ability to set any The only reason it isn't a 10 is because of some lingering bugs that have kept me from expanding my league. But the ability to set any league size, start at any year in history, import real players from any year, expand or contract your league, manage every game or play GM, roleplay as a manager, customer service that has released a patch after 5 days fo the game being available, the best community built around a sports game EVER...how can you possibly complain about a game like this?
