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.

World Basketball Tycoon reviews and comments

It'S entertaining and deep. Maybe too much for some casual gambler. But He's the most powerful basketball manager in the day. Do Not expect an equivalent to Football Manager, because it is not, nor intended to be (your budget has nothing to do). But Of course, I'm thrilled with him! Leagues from all over the world, and there is also an "amateur" patch that includes names and images of real gamers for all templates. That's great!!!

Apart from the fact that the Game is not playable with me (Crash before the first Match-despite new Scores), it would not otherwise be recommended either. There are no Explanations of any Kind, nor is the Game's surface somehow thought through and the Menu guidance a Bottomless Cheekiness. While it May be that the Player Database (Fantasy names) is huge, 2000 Pages don't make up a good Book either;) Absolute Waste of Money, Fingers off!

The greatest Scrap ever! It is Hard to make a Game more confusing and loveless. If this Game were the first sports manager of all Time it would still be somehow spherical, but compared to EA Football Manager or even to the Kick-out series just ugly and without any discernible graphic Concept. That you can't play a Match either, because the Game indicates an Exceptional Error at the Latest on Time for the Whistle and asks you to leave the Game doesn't make it any better. 5 euros thrown out!

This Game is, in my Opinion, really difficult to classify: On the one Hand, for the Purchase Price of €8.99million, there are some interesting aspects to this Game, mainly due to Patches available on the Internet, which include the real Names and Pictures of players and Teams Is provided, highlighted. A very simple Basketball Manager, who is also understandable for people who may not have so much to do with Basketball due to Its simple Gameplay. On the other Hand, this Game also brings with it some nerve-wracking hours, as various Bugs or Programming Errors can quickly spoil the Fun of the Thing. While there are still Ways for most to fix them, I Don't think that's the Job of the Community, it's the role of the developers, apart from the fact that this Game tends to hang itself in the middle of a Match, which makes a certain Game Progress can be lost. In Summary, ' ' WBM Tycoon ' isn't for anyone expecting a flawless Gaming Experience. But If you want To support this Game in its early Stages, you should give This One a Chance and buy it. Personally, I hope for the Growth of the Community, which is already intensively engaged with the Game and for further development by the Playmakers, so that the Thumb given upwards by me is one Day fully justified.
