Unusual sim, but compelling

FHM is an in-depth sim of the sport of ice hockey. It doesn't just cover the NHL, but pretty much any league you care to think of. It is a balancing act between the financial cap and the best players you can afford and not going over the cap. The original launch game had some game-breaking bugs, but now it is patched up and it runs much better. Even if you are not familiar with ice hockey, the business side of the game is engrossing. Do a little reading on the internet and it will help with tactics if you get stuck. Trade players to make a Stanley Cup contending team, use your tactics to outwit your competitors. Highly recommended.


Not football but hockey!

We've seen alot of footbal managers, at the beginning they're good but after sometime they do get bored. This is something like that but alot more players, 300+ teams and 19 leagues including NHL, AHL, OHL, WHL, Liiga, EIHL, KHL and even SHL! Every historical NHL and WHA season from 1947-2013 is included. This manager is alot better than the footbal managers. Worth the price.
