After experiencing 0.2 hours of this masterpiece I am now able to close the game for a second and write this review. First of all the game does not work in full screen view, this is an amazing design feature as now people with low-end rigs will be able to play this game, maybe the devs copied Realm Of The Mad God a game that can only be played in windowed mode. Secondly the interface is also amazing the spinning basketball in the top left really creates next generation physics and graphics. Also the fact that there is no tutorial and I still have not played a game yet because I don't know how really shows the devs respect long time gamers of this franchise. The game also has very long load times that means you can do other things while it loads amazing work from the devs. The game also has no Licensing this mean the actual names of teams have been edited for a more emersive experiance, my local team is now called the 'Niwcastle Eegles'. In conclustion I would say this game is very much in contertion for GOTY and possibly even game of the decade if there is one, I am looking forward to World Basketball Manager 2011 and can't wait for future updates to make the game even better. £0.34 well spent.

After playing for about one hour i feel like im in a position to review this game.
The bad points, the game allows you to play as any team around the including the Baston Ciltics and european teams such as the Niwcastle Eegles.
And thats where it ends, it claws back respect and rating with;
The game cant spell team names correctly, it gives you no guidance as to how you play, it crashes and just freezes whenever you go to a match, when youve worked that out. The graphics are next-gen, beutiful, all the time people were walking past saying "are you watching a game" and then couldnt believe it when i said "no its world basketball manager". The developers clearly spent a lot of time getting the player models right and ecerything else looking crisp.
To conclude this is an amazing game which any Basketball fan around the world should purchase, and for under £1 why wouldnt you? The game is amazingly polished with NO BUGS AT ALL and can be run on anything. If anyone has been toying between this and one of the NBA games made by 2k i'd pick world basketball manager in an instant.
10/10 a masterpiece

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.

Pre-Release Review
This game has been uninstalled on My PC since the first 143 seconds of opening it up. I'm not sure I would even call this a "game" as it is more like a powerpoint presentation. Windows notepad is more fun than this program. The menu is horrid, the grammar is horrid, player names are spelt incorrectly.

I still see this in my game library at times and have even googled "how to dis-own a steam game" because it insults my library by just being there in the list.

If I didn't already own this game, and Steam were forceably giving it to people with an option of paying $2 to NOT own it, then I would pay.

That is how bad it is. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

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.

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"

This is from the official website FAQ & Tech Support: www.wbmgame.com
There is also a 2014 version there that is bug free.

Steam gave me this game for Christmas in 2011, and despite being completely FREE, it's not worth playing.

Buggy and unsupported. There are far better Basketball Management games out there. Don't be fooled into thinking this one is the best one simply because it's on Steam. Even at $1 you've wasted your money.

WBM series is currently the best basketball manager game, but this 2010 version is pretty old and also the steam setup has some bugs that don’t exist in the official version.

Although that you can give it a try for the low price that steam offers it, it would be better to buy the new World Basketball Manager Tycoon version here on steam, or just download the WBM 2014 from the official website. They offer a 2 days free trial which I recommend you play to find out if you like the game, as this is a game only for die hard sport manager fans.

Even if you like sport manager games don’t start playing before to see the tutorial video and read the manual and the strategy guide. This is a very complex old school basketball simulator and you will need all the info included in the manual. But you will be rewarded for your time with a very realistic basketball game simulation and a very challenging A.I. especially inside the games, where you’ll see that the opponent manager will try to answer most of your orders and substitutions as best as he can.

Another huge plus of this game is the big database that let you make a career all around the world.

So for some quick positives and negatives in my opinion:

+
Realistic simulation of the basketball world
Huge selection of Clubs, Tournaments and National Teams

-
Ugly Graphics
No player trades and loans only transfers

I left a longer review on the newer version of this game, World Basketball Tycoon (or WBM Tycoon), which I still didn't recommend (it looks a bit nicer and has some other fun features and less bugs but still no tutorial.)

This one is absolutely obtuse, no tutorial, worse UI, and best of all keeps crashing on me or bugging out. Sorry, nope.

Steve Jones was in the zone. His managing skills had hit the apex of humanity's feeble, singleminded attempts at managing robotic basketball players on his computer. Staring intently at his Excel spreadsheet detailing down-to-the-decimal statistics about each player, he leaned down to nose level with his desk and snorted an expertly cut line of cocaine without ever taking his eyes off of the computer screen. He needed to manage this team and he needed to manage it faster than the entire world.

"Honey?" his wife said, poking her head into his management domain. She had broken the sacred vows of all basketball manager wives and invaded his spreadsheet galaxy. "I heard screaming earlier. Are you alright?"

Without hesitation, Steve Jones, spreadsheet king, whipped his arm around with a Colt Python in his hand and slaughtered Marla Jones, victim of another basketball management homicide, without looking away from the monitor.

Got it free as a prize for some competition and I still feel ripped off... Nothing quite says 'quality' like finding the game hasn't licensed existing team names, and has decided to just misspell all the team names to get round it.

If you find bad spelling drives you up the wall, this game is going to leave you rather homicidal inside a few minutes. Having every team name mangled means you're going to spend a lot of time wincing... :/

I've played a lot of fantasy basketball, but this program takes micromanagement to daunting levels. Not only do you have to micromanage a local professional team, you also have to micromanage the national team. The overwhelming number of options are frustratingly tedious plus the poorly implemented user inferface makes it painful to even want to learn how to use it. Add a dreadfully slow player database on top of an eyesore background color and this is nothing short of a disaster.

I did find their database comical in the sense that they copied all real world player/team names and made one vowel changes to those names. It seems like NBA intellectual property infringement to me. Regardless, this program isn't worth any investment of time or energy. You are better served playing Yahoo! fantasy basketball or some other derivative.
