Franchise Hockey Manager 4 Reviews

Franchise Hockey Manager 4 is the latest and perhaps greatest of Out of the Park Developments high quality hockey management simulator. There are a handful of improvements over the last release, and all updates to the current season as included as well. Despite some accuracy issues with simulation, and some confusing navigation, FHM 4 is a strong release, but with few must-have changes for even a dedicated player.

If you haven't played the series since FHM 1 or 2, it's sure to blow you away. If you were big into the last edition then you may not find a lot different with this year's release aside from the Vegas addition, matchup screen, and some of the minor changes. It's just as deep as ever, but FHM 4 leaves you with a feeling of wanting more.
