Front Office Football is a text-based sports simulation. It's a game for those of us who love the numbers in sports.

In Front Office Football, you play the role of your favorite team's general manager. You determine your team's future through trading with opponents, negotiating contracts, bidding for free agents and discovering new talent through the annual amateur draft.

You can also play the role of the armchair coach, setting game plans, creating playbooks and depth charts. You can call every play yourself if you like.

You can determine ticket prices and submit stadium construction plans for public approval. You can move your team if the public won't properly support your franchise.

Front Office Football Eight includes a multi-player career mode with full ftp support, allowing you to compete in a league with up to 31 other enthusiastic general managers. Multi-player mode runs independently of Steam and requires a commissioner to manage the web site.

The original game, released in 1998, received an Editors' Choice award from Computer Gaming World and a 4 1/2-star review. It was nominated for numerous Sports Game of the Year awards. This is the Eighth full version.

Front Office Football 8 nails the little things. If not for the outdated interface, this would be an all-time classic in every sense.
