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 game!
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.

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.

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.

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.
