    If you have any interest in the guts of baseball, OOTP 2007 is simply a must-own product. It's a landmark achievement. It's weird to think about it: It took a London-based company known for its soccer management games and a German-born developer with a passion for the sport to produce arguably the best and most complete simulation of America's Pastime.
  2. The depth is unlike anything that most sports gamers will ever experience. There are so many different ways to play and enjoy this game, it is almost as if there are five or six different games all rolled into one.
  3. 100
    Anyone who's ever dreamed of running a professional team in some capacity, or anyone who enjoys fantasy baseball, baseball board games, or similar products, will absolutely love what OOTP 2007 offers. Any criticisms of the game are merely trivial; in the end it comes down to this: This is the best “fantasy” baseball gaming package ever created.

    OOTP 2007 gets a once-great series back on the road to Cooperstown by balancing depth with a user-friendly interface. [July 2007, p.60]

    Out of the Park Baseball 2007 is not a perfect game, as it lacks the human touch that fills baseball and its general manager positions, but there are so many aspects that it digitally replicates with excellence that this doesn't matter.

    Wow, there are some really dumb people making comments here. If you haven't played the game, don't comment. It just makes you look Wow, there are some really dumb people making comments here.

    OOTP Baseball 2007 is easily the best version of the game yet, and I'd say the best baseball management game ever period. The team OOTP Baseball 2007 is easily the best version of the game yet, and I'd say the best baseball management game ever period. The team behind it definitely corrected the mistakes that made the 2006 version disappointing. The historical engine has been improved to the point of being better than the more expensive specialty sims out there. The online league functions have made it easier than ever to run or play in online leagues. And there are more options than ever for creating your own baseball universe. The speed of the game, from the speed of the sim engine to the interface's responsiveness has been improved greatly. The interface has also been refined and improved, making navigation easier and more responsive than last year. The biggest thing that 2007 has over 2006 is that it's fun to play OOTP again! Expand

    Simply a solid simulation of the baseball universe - the best possible game for those who are interested in this style of simulation.

    Good, but not great.
    Definately not a better game than Half-Life 2.
    This is one of the best basball sims out there, but still is light-years
    Good, but not great.
    Definately not a better game than Half-Life 2.
    This is one of the best basball sims out there, but still is light-years of the majesty of games such as starcraft and HL2.
    A sim cannot ever beat those games, because it requires little, if any creative input. No art direction is needed, no character development, no cinematics, nothing to compare with the other games in the top 10.

    Another sim, not creative at all.Why is this the second best game ever according to metacritic? This is just like the top movies, with Another sim, not creative at all.Why is this the second best game ever according to metacritic?
