Guide Review - "Bowl Bound College Football" Review
Even if I did have a favorite college team, they won't be found in "Bowl Bound College Football." All of the teams and players are fictional, though they do have similar locations. You can edit the names of all the colleges in the league when you create a new league. In addition, jobs can be delegated to staff, league structure, and options are set. The team schedule, roster, depth chart, offense, defense, study hall time can all be customized and changed during the season.
Generally, sports text management games are not easy to learn. The interface usually takes the most time to learn and figuring out what you are suppose to be doing is a game by itself. With "Bowl Bound College Football" this is not an issue. There is a weekly checklist that guides from week to week, to season to season.
The one area that could use more depth is the recruiting process. Your options are to scout, recruit, and offer a scholarship. What about calling them, visiting them, or watching game tape?
If you're tried a text management game before and was easily confused, try this one. With a demo available, you can't go wrong by at least trying it.
