If you expect this game to be similar to Football Manager, but for basketball then you will waste your money. Keep in mind that this was developed by a small team of students.
There are a lot of leagues to select and there's a good variety of management options. You can also play as a Youth Team or a Women's team which is pretty cool. There's also a data editor which lets you modify pretty much everything in the game
The game suffers from a lot of technical issues, like constant crashes, slow loading times, unresponsive and glitchy UI, just to name a few. The AI is also laughable and it makes some pretty funny and weird choices
Unfortunately there is not a proper tutorial for the game, so you'll probably have a hard time figuring out the game if you don't find any helpful guides on the internet
You will probably enjoy this if you're into management games but it's certainly not worth it's current price.You're better off picking up NBA 2K and playing the Association Mode
Pro Management continues to surprise us.XGpredator | Dec. 26, 2013 | See all XGpredator's reviews »
Like every year, Basketball Pro Management comes back with very good intentions to make more credible and balanced experience. Its interesting to take control of an NBA team while the conduct of the matches is more realistic. Still, its just a bunch of "small" improvements, no big news, but it's still a fun and addicting.
Worth a shot...juxtaposed_j | Dec. 21, 2013 | See all juxtaposed_j's reviews »
I checked this out as I was interested in a another management simulation, after playing such as Football Manager and the Theme Park-types.
I was slightly disappointed however, as you only get to deal/manage with European basketball teams (not the NBA American Basketball teams I had hoped)
It is still worth checking out even if you are not a basketball fan as you get to manage, train and find talent, while ultimately being the best basketball team and manager out there!
Another deep management gamelok0812 | Dec. 15, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
This is another great sport management game compared to the other basketball management. Unlike the other ones where you can just manage a little aspect of the game like how to play and which players to send to the court, this one is much more deep. Not only you can train your own players for the game but you can also find rookies in the league and recruit them into your team. In addition, you can choose your team including your crews, coaches, as well as your strategies. Lastly, there are many other championship matches as well as other type of teams like youth leagues. Overall, this is most likely the deepest basketball management games in the market.
