Front Page Sports Football....EGAD!

Hey Guys - i just received an e-mail that Cyanide studios is re-releasing Front Page Sports Football - which was the greatest sports game ever created.

Out of the Park Baseball is probably now my all-time favorite - but oh no - decisions decisions! Do i wait for BTS and bank on the quality and expertise of the OOTP folks....or jump back on the Front Page Sports bandwagon!!!!!

BTS Isn't being released until some point next year so you can use FPS Football to pass time till it's released.

Having played quite a few Cyanide games, I have to say that they tend to make nice games but of inferior quality to what OOTPD does.

So if you can only choose one, I'd wait for BTS. If you can afford and have the time for both though, go for both.

OMG. I lost hundreds of hours to this series in the 90s. I had a huge spreadsheet detailing each season and the records, stats, etc. This basically was my life in the teens. Awesome to see it trying to make a comeback. IMHO, no football game has even come close to this game since.

I still have the same game files from my league - 30 years of team history ready to be restored if the game is viable......

I'm imagining that BTS will be a spiritual successor to Front Page Sports - but only time shall tell.

The company making FPS isn't Dynamix or Sierra - so i am not confident it's going to be any good

Noticed this has no relation to the game by the same title in the 90s. They just named it the same. Kind of takes the wind out. I also saw an old interview done in 2009 where they kept referring to the game as a "match" and said there is no single player.

Certainly not promising.

That information from 2009 is old - they did have an online version which was not good. The new info is dated July 31 (check them on facebook) - and they expect to release single player before football season starts.

I read about it 5 days ago here:
Front Page Sports Football Set to Arrive Just in Time For the Upcoming Season - Operation Sports

not sure enough about it though. If it's web based I'll be passing on it along with a primary focus on MP.

If it looks good I'll be getting it but that won't stop me from playing BTS and FOF for that matter. The screenshot it can't figure out why the UI is so small and the background is so large...


edit: http://www.cyanide-studio.com/games/...page-football/ is this the same one? I hope not...

Well, does anyone know how good this game is:

Cyanide - Games - Basketball Pro Management

because if that isn't any good then I will be bummed because the football game will likely not be good either.

The 2014 version was on steam and overall quite negative reviews.

Never heard of that game but I am in need of a good basketball manager (DDS CB/PB has little to no support and is full of problems; FBB/FBCB is too limited compared to DDS's basketball games)

I winder if anyone here checked this one out.


Edit-

Seem like the big focus for 15 was the AI.

The game has some pretty interesting features (womans basketball) The steam reviews are discouraging though but its hard to take some of those comments seriously when someone states that 2k manager is far better than ootpb..

That is the online version they released a number of years back. I actually played it for a couple seasons and didn't think it was all that bad, it just didn't have a very big user base and died. I get the impression the game they are releasing is something completely different from this.

EDIT: The other thing to keep in mind is that they were only the publisher on that basketball game that received poor reviews, not the developer so there is still hope this game won't suck too. I couldn't find if they were making the game or some other studio was.

Interesting that this comes out, but my money is still on an OOTP developments crew producing a better game just because OOTP has always been immersive and had an emphasis on information and history being available. Although Front Office Football has a decent game for realistic and unpredictable results, it's presentation is lacking and really takes away from the immersion. I'll definitely want some reviews before I purchase Front Page but I'll at least read about it.
