Ratings and Reviews
Feels very real
I’m playing through a season, and every game feels like it could have really played out exactly that way in real life. Especially in the number of losses, since I’m playing as a small market team that just can’t compete with the big boys. Still, there are occasional moments of unexpected glory … and every one of them feels very realistic.
I’m not having any of the problems that the other review reports … the game has been solid for me.
Good baseball sim, but few new features
OOTP is a great game for baseball simulation. However, there are very little difference in offline-play between this version and last year's version. I guess the developers are putting most of their effort into the online Perfect Team mode. For people like me who play only offline, it's not worth upgrading from last year's version.
Slow and Shut Down
I feel like I wasted my money. It is slow, glitchy, and has shut down on me without saving any of my progress. If I could get a refund and delete the app, I would.
