    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. If you haven't played the game, don't comment. It just makes you look stupid. This is an incredible game, filled with replay value. It is the best baseball sim game on the market. Expand

    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.

    Limited appeal to an audience, only great fans of baseball would like this game, for the vast majority of people, it simply isn't worth it. SoLimited appeal to an audience, only great fans of baseball would like this game, for the vast majority of people, it simply isn't worth it. So it IS worth a 96/100, but only for baseball fans. For everyone else, it's a dud. Expand

    Ok so the only reason im here is cuz a buddy of mine said that this was the #2 game one meta, and it was the best baseball game ever. Im very Ok so the only reason im here is cuz a buddy of mine said that this was the #2 game one meta, and it was the best baseball game ever. Im very skeptical of sports games in general, my view is that if you have one of each sport then u have them all, and this was no exception. football, baseball, soccer, i just have the first one of each i ever bought cuz really they dont actually get any more fun as time goes on. This really didn't impress me at all, sure it might stack up well against other games in the genre but this is nothing compared to half life, bioshock, diablo or any other games in the top 10. to put this above 8 other games is an insult the those 8 below it. the average development time for a new sports game is a year or so if its decent. half life 2 was like 3. the only reason this game has the score it does is because it only has 5 reviews and those reviews were given by people who love sports games. If you look at most sports games reviews they are unusually and consistently high anyway. Expand

    The fact that this game is on the second spot of PC games is just a prove that press has no idea of rating games. Yeah, it's pretty decent.The fact that this game is on the second spot of PC games is just a prove that press has no idea of rating games. Yeah, it's pretty decent.

    This game is terrible, and should NOT in any way appear in this list. This game has only got this position, and I mean ONLY, because of the This game is terrible, and should NOT in any way appear in this list. This game has only got this position, and I mean ONLY, because of the frigging 5 reviews it has received. NO GAME can receive this position along with Half-Life 2 because "5 reviews" said so. This should be get AWAY from Metacritic. Nobody knows about this game, this game definitely do NOT deserve this position. Expand
