Features:
• Worldwide basketball action from all leagues
• Over 1,000 teams including national and international teams

• Over 1,200 managers
• Over 100 full playing national and international competitions
• Challenging A.I.
• Daily news coverage from around the league
• Realistic basketball statistics and atmosphere

The Game

The game from the outside looks like team-management for basketball team, like FM for football team. The basic features are there : the team management, the facility management, contract management, etc. There is also training management, finance management, and basic management stuff that should be in any sport management game. The problem in this game is not on features, but on its execution, that is what I have to say. As in FM game, the management aspect in this game revolves on managing your players, notably their training, contract, and general condition. You can also manage your team, which revolves on how to improve your facility, what players you want to draft in this season, what players you want to sell this season, how to gain income from sponsors and tickets, and others. The game also have match management, at least in theory, because during play I always got an error when trying to resolve the match manually.

Observations
Sadly, the game don't work. There are too many bugs, too many things unfinished. I am talking about unfinished, not unpolished. For some games (notably tycoon games) some things could be unpolished, looks clunky, but the functionalities are there. A lot of stuff on this game have zero functionality, not to mention lots of game-breaking bugs.

Bad UI
The UI is bad. Here are few things that I found as unacceptable :
- It's hard to navigate to a particular player.
- On the player screen, his physical stats, his offensive stats, and his defensive stats are divided into three different screens, which requires you to switch back and forth to view this player from all angles.
- You don't know how much money on-hand you got now. You can view it from the finance overview, but that only tells you about budget and remaining cash after the budget year, not your cash now.
- Everything is hard to be navigated. Too access a specific information you have to go 3-4 clicks, while in similar games 1 click or 2 click is suffice.
- There are no explanation when you are building something. The game only gives you the cost and the picture, but nothing else. Tycoons can't make decision without critical information, this game fails to deliver information.

Facebook?
There are options on this game to publish certain team snippets, for example "Red Sox is looking for a new manager" in Facebook. Why with Facebook? Is this game like those farming game in Facebook, where we pester other people for help? Bad decision.

A lot of things are unfunctional
If you draft the players, the screen suddenly changes background that you have hard time figuring out the text. There are problems when trying to play match manually, all matches must be played automatically. Why put the button there if it can't work?

Art is good
The only redeeming factor is the art of the facility (one scene only) is quite good. No other arts existed though, because I can't play the manual game, and like tycoon games, art is limited. Tycoon games is mostly about UI, art can be followed next.

Verdict
Not recommended, this game is unfinished. Unfinished. Unplayable. Not fun to play.

This game had potential but it feels unfinished. Simulating takes an insane amount of time even if you reduce the number of tournaments. You'll spend more time waiting time to flow than acutally managing your team which makes it quite a pain. Also, there are some bugs and unfinished features like the one where you can remove tournaments but the game will still load them from the menu and give an error message if you chose them. And since there is no sign of an update, I'm glad it was on sale when I bought it cause in it's curent state, it isn't worth 10 bucks.

holy sheets buttman, this thing is broken like a pre alpha, 7 attempts of starting a game, and each one of them has resulted in getting stuck in gamebreaking bugs.
never expect to be able to go back in the menu system, as you will be unab´le to continue the game if you try.

This game is broken and an absolute waste of money. DO NOT BUY IT, THE GAME IS UNPLAYABLE. I was stupid and bit that bullet for you.

There is no tutorial so you are just blindly "playing" if you want to call it that.
You know when you are working on an Excel sheet and you just cant seem to get the columns to line up? Well, this game has that problem with the player names and attribute.

I could keep going but it just makes me mad. This game sucks and I wish I could get my money back.

This is a higly underatted game mainly cause of the bad interface graphics. If you like basketball and Football Manager series, this is what you need. Deep simulation of basketball and a huge, but huge database.
You must see the Tutorial video and read the manual in order to fully understand how to play. Unfortunately the interface is not very good but after you learn how to play it is impossible to stop!
I strongly reccomend this game for sport manager fans.

En Español, ya que soy de Argentina, aprovechando que tenemos una buena camada de jugadores!

Creo que es un juego subestimado por los gráficos, la verdad, que si te gusta el basket y la serie de Football Manager, entenderás que es normal: una gran simulación de juegos y una base de datos enorme.
Recomiendo que vean el video del tutorial y el manual para entender como jugar; y si bien la interfaz no es la mejor, una vez que aprendes a jugar es dificil parar.
Recomiendo el juego a los fanáticos de los juegos de manager de deportes.

A great old school sport manager.
This game will make only a small percentage of gamers happy. But it will make them really happy!
Don’t play this game if you don’t like old school manager games. But if you do, you will be really satisfied with the simulation of the basketball world and most of all with the Artificial intelligence of the opponent CPU managers.
The game lucks in visuals but it makes up with a huge database that includes all serious basketball action on the planet.
Don’t worry about the fake names. You will easily find a patch to fix that online.

Very nice for all manager and tycoon game fans. It has a huge database that includes all the basketball action in the world and is not focused only on NBA, which is a huge plus for me. So you can make a career in Spain, Argentina or even Korea.
At first I was a little put off by the fake names in the database, but after I found the real names patch from {ПРЕМАХНАТА ВРЪЗКА}http://www.wbmfan.webs.com/ the problem was solved.
I have been a Football Manager fan for many years and I believe that other sport manager fans will enjoy this game, especially older players that used to play the FM series before the 2D graphic engine was added.

This is a game for serious sports fans. If you really like basketball and/or other games in the genre such as Football Manager, then you will like this game. It doesn't offer a lot graphically, but it is very detailed as far as managing a team and using analytics to create the best team possible. It can be very difficult, but you can turn the difficulty settings down before launching the game. Buy this if you want a deeply detailed basketball management experience and don't mind that it runs pretty much like a browser game. I have a longer review available on Corrupted Cartridge.

It's an ok game if you love basketball and old school sim games....I love both, and I enjoy this game, but would probably give it a 3/5.

Still, a lot could be improved to make this a great game, in my opinion:

The load times are incredibly long.

The game gives you VERY little control unless you want to coach during the games, I, personally, would rather set up rotations, offensive/defensive settings, etc. and let a computer coach run the game. Instead, you can sim games, but you have no control at all over the depth chart, offense/defense used, etc. Like I said, I want to be the GM, but don't want to do quite s much coaching.

There's not really any scouting. This would be an obvious and great addition. In signing International players it would be great to find diamonds in the rough/find overrated guys on the decline. Instead you just see their ratings, which is slightly boring, and also unrealistic.

It's a good game. It's interesting trying to build teams in different countries and leagues around the world. But, it could be a great game, and, right now, it doesn't fit that bill.

I have loved sports management games for years. Basketball ones are not common, so I was excited to try this one, and even more excited when I saw how huge and detailed its database and game world was.

Unfortunately, the game is let down by some basic failings. The accuracy of the simulation is not that good, which is a problem when the game is built around numbers. My team often racks up more offensive rebounds than defensive rebounds, and hardly any assists (which may be due to the European system).

Coaching options are also irritatingly limited. Have a star player and want to give them a lead role? Have a great long-range shooter and want them to focus on those shots? You'll have to set them *every game*; there's no overall strategy screen. In a long season and want to skip some games? You can't even set a depth chart.

The database is definitely praise-worthy, and being able to simulate so many leagues across the world is a fine feature. It's just a shame the rest of the game doesn't do it justice.

Its a great game for a cheap price, mind you the loading times in game seem to take a while, and it can be a bit disorganised at times. 6/10 Average sim game not bad but not good

i'm addict basketball fan, so i buy this game and regret it very badly

Knowing some awsome game of simulation of sports (Football Manager), this game rise you hope up.
About 30 mins played you know all functions of the game, you dont have THAT control of the team, you can only setting up you trainings and selects you players to start, and that it, no more interactions!!!

I will not comment about the graphics and things like that because i dont care much about this.

If this game have some more options of managing or more environment of basketball could be a fun a game.

There's a lot to enjoy in this game if you're a fan of sports management sims. It does a decent job of giving you options in developing both your franchise and your players and an AI that's always competent without making you feel like the deck is stacked against you. I live in Korea and was very impressed to see a good data base for the Korean professional basketball league and assume the same attention to detail extends to other non-NBA national leagues. Don't be put off by the fictional team and player names. You can go to {ПРЕМАХНАТА ВРЪЗКА}http://www.wbmfan.webs.com/ and download easily installable real name and real player image files for the NBA. The mechanics for playing individual games is modest but enjoyable and while the interface is a bit clunky and the graphics and sound are retro, none of the limitations are deal killers. While the game can't go toe-to-toe with top priced sports management sims, it's excellent value for money.

This game is honestly terrible. I'm a huge fan of Tycoon and Strategy games, and this game is just a poorly planned, terribly executed, game... can I even call it a game?

It's just not good. The screenshots make it look engaging and deep, but there is no easing into this game. No tutorial, and the stats aren't very useful.

Pass on this game basketball and tycoon fans.

There's no tutorial. There's no tutorial. There's no tutorial.

There's literally nothing in the game that explains what anything is, how you can use it, why you'd like to, etc. It took me a ton of clicking around just to get back to where I could look at my roster. Also a lot of windows seem to have errors where they come up completely blank. The loading time is also extremely long for what it seems to be loading. There's other odd stuff too like it encouraging you to post fairly mundane things to facebook.

When you do actually get to matches there's a simulated scoreboard and some text flavor about what's going on, which is nice - you can pick who to put in for what position. It's more fun there, but could still really benefit from a tutorial. It would be nice to at least see tips pop up when you hovered over something explaining what it meant. The user interface just isn't intuitive and, to me, it feels like a lot of build up and number crunching is required for very little in the way of actual fun.

It looks like there's a lot of information, and for people interested in detailed management that's probably pretty cool, but it doesn't even feel like a game as much as a tool to jot down the game - if you already know what you're doing and you've played this kind of game a lot maybe that's great, but until it has a tutorial of some sort and explanation of what you're trying to do I just can't recommend it (especially at 10 bucks.)

For certain people I can see it being really engrossing, but you'll have to do your own research to figure out how to play it. I've got other games to dig into and it hasn't shown me anything to make me feel it would be worth the time to figure everything out. So if you feel like checking it out on sale (I got it for 2.50) go ahead, just know what you're getting into.
