World Basketball Manager Tycoon
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
WBM Tycoon is a fresh look in sports strategy games that combines the classic manager game with the financial management and development of a Tycoon type game. As the Club Owner you must generate (or loan) the necessary funds in order to expand the club's facilities, raise the financial level and improve the team's roster. And as you remain the Manager you are still in charge of the Player's training program and when the match day comes, you have to select the team lineup, create the most appropriate strategy and find the way to victory by countering the opposing manager's plans.

Be a Tycoon...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 are only a basketball owner and as far as I know none of the players are real.
Worth checking out if you are a dedicated basketball fan and are a big fan of tycoon games.
A great old school Sport Manager and Tycoon game!Wile30r | Dec. 18, 2013 | See all Wile30r's reviews »
This game will make only a small percentage of gamers happy. But it will make them really happy! In this game you don't get to be the manager only, but also the team owner. So the game can be played either as a classic sport manager by ignoring the Tycoon part or as a Tycoon game by just simulating all matches or like it is, a Manager and a Tycoon game at the same time. But every way you choose to play you will be really satisfied with the simulation of the basketball world, the huge database and most of all with the Artificial Intelligence of the opponent CPU managers. Also don’t worry about the fake names. You will easily find a patch to fix that online.
Not the manager game you thinklok0812 | Dec. 4, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
Games like Football Manager allows player to manage their own team as well as do many other extra stuffs along the game like tending or playing the actual game. This World Basketball Manager is the other way around. While there are many teams that allow the players to manage from there are very little interaction after the tutorial. After you learned the mechanics of the game and what you can control and that is it, you only have the ability to train your team and select the players for the play and you just watch things happen. Overall, a very disappointing manager game with so little interaction.
