This is a very nice game but I recommend it only to die hard "Old School" manager games fans. The rest better stay away from this.
Also the steam version of the game is buggy. You must apply the following fix in order to play the matches:
1. Disable temporarily windows UAC. (Here is how: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/turn-user-account-control-on-or-off )
2. Download www.wbmgame.com/files/registerdx8.zip
Unzip inside "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\world basketball manager 2010" and double click. Note that if you are using Vista or Windows7 you must right click the file and select "Run as administrator"

There is also a 2014 version there that is bug free.

There's no game in this.
There's no way to sanely navigate the menu, and some of the buttons are broken.

Spend your money on bubble gum instead of this.

Avoid this at any cost, even in sale. The game is as deep as a plate and as appealing as Excel lite in red, means you could have more fun with Excel. Overall this is just an ugly RNG with no indepth.
