This is a review for a game. I do not like video games. I strive to be productive, so when a game breaks past my wall, it must be pretty good. Draft Day Sports Pro Basketball by Wolverine Studios is one of my all time favorite games that I have ever played. I am sharing this with you because it is a game that I know a lot of you have the potential to enjoy. I can’t tell you how many nights I lay down with the laptop to relax and fall asleep playing this game because it mellows me out after a hard day.
So what is it? A simple game where you play General Manager and/or coach of a a basketball team. Simple is the key word of this game. It is simple, straightforward and clean.
An awesome feature is that you can go back and play historically. I personally like the option of expansion. I am currently trying to create a dynasty with my expansion Grizzlies team. You can also redo the 1984 and send Michael Jordan to your team. Feel that is too easy, then how about randomizing the potential of players when you play historically so Michael Jordan has the chance to play like A.C. Green; never thought that I would ever juxtapose those two together.
Draft Day Sports Pro Basketball is the perfect option for those that want to play a basketball game without all the jazzy graphics. It doesn’t take a ton of computer space and runs pretty smoothly. The best part is, if you have a technical issue with the game after you buy it, support is readily available. The game is small enough that you will get that kind of hands on care. Heck, they even want to know if you have a technical issue so they can fix it for the next update. I love that type of care; and did I mention that the guy in charge of doing that is a card collector.
Obviously I love the game. I have played many versions of it and I feel that it has turned me into a better fan. I love it so much that I want one of you to enjoy it. After this post is published, look for a Twitter contest that will end Monday night, November 28th. I personally suggest buying the game right now, as it is on a Black Friday sale price at http://www.wolverinestudios.com/
