    This just isn't really the kind of game I'm willing to spend money on. It's a big price tag for fairly simple and uninteresting gameplay mechanics, I'm definitely not willing to give this game any credit, being that it doesn't merit any. Go spend your $40 on something else, preferably marijuana, you'll get a more exciting experience than Out of the Park Baseball 9.

    After nine versions, there is no question that OOTP is firmly atop the baseball general manager simulation heap. For new players this is stellar material despite its issues, but longtime fans and especially those who own last year's game need to weigh their options a bit more closely. OOTP 9 is worth the $40 upgrade, but just barely.
  2. At the end of the day, playing a game that so closely mimics the real thing is all you can hope for. Out of the Park 9 is hands down one of the best baseball sims I’ve ever laid eyes on, and I can’t wait to finish this review so I can play more.
  3. I think if you really took the time to delve into and test out the game’s options, then you could make it effective at simulating a modern Major League season, and if you're interested in other leagues (like the Japanese or Mexican leagues) or in historical leagues, then OTPB9 is just about the only option out there.
