I am a baseball fantasy/sim freak and this game is an A++ in the sim department. It gives a player the chance to build a baseball dynasty while trying to balance a contender using older/more experienced players. The challenge of accomplishing that parity is beyond words. In addition, it has a stat tracker that is second to none. Part of the fun of building a team from year to year is tracking player stats and accomplishments. This game has plenty of that, picking the All Stars. MVP, Cy Young, etc. If you want hours of fun, enjoyment, and challenge - I highly recommend this game.
