Handball Manager 2009 (PC-DVD) World Edition
Handball Manager 2009 (PC-DVD) World Edition
Offered by Byte Slaves
Price: $16.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Management Game, January 13, 2013
Comparing this to other 2009 sport management games it has all the bells and whistles plus some personal stuff. In addition to typical team management you need to build and improve your stadium. You can buy stock, go on a date, and even start a family. These can effect your career.
The leagues included are mostly 1st division European but both male and female squads are available and the German set up is excellent!! 18 divisions!
Different game modes from choosing any club, starting as a new manager/player, or creating a club provides many play scenarios.
During match play you can view a text style 'live' report or 3d graphic highlights. This is where the game lacks compared to others. I would rather have a 2d like the older Football Managers but this complaint is minimal and doesn't alter my enjoyment.
All things considered this is a great game for the handball fan. Newer versions are not available in the US but like Pro Rugby Manager I'll bd playing this long after the technology is out of date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the original, April 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Using for my Android LG Optimus phone. The original cable fell apart within weeks. They sent a new and shorter in 13 days. 13 DAYS!
I use cloth cables for amplifying musical instruments so when I saw this I immediately ordered.
Chord is sturdy, durable and solid. The cloth keeps it from snagging. Connection is a nice fit and clean. I would recommend this to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a power cord., January 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Its hard to get excited for a purchase that is a boring necessity but when you are without, the anger sure gets you excited.
When the time comes that you need to replace an item like this, 4 things matter: How quickly can you get it to me, How much are you going to charge me, Does it work, and How long will it work? It came to my doorstep in 4 days, Price was 20% of list, Pluged it in and my machine started right up, I need 2 years to answer the last question.
This order satisfied everything I asked so far and what more do you want from a power cord.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any cricket fan young and old., November 11, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Cricket is currently going through a transformation. What once was an intelligent, patient sport is being drawn towards a fast paced instant gratification type of game with the twenty twenty game. If this is good for the game is a long debate but what it is doing is decreasing the importance of the 1st class game. Every county is whining about lack of money, and domestic competitions in other nations are almost ignored unless they are T20 with football type 'premiere' or champions league named or comical and absurd like Big Bash. The Wisden Book of County Cricket is a book that allows us newer cricket fans read why the 1st class game was and is so important.
This book begins with a condensed history of English cricket. Starting with the 1st organized matches to the 1980 season. (book published in 81). This enables the reader to understand the relevance of the county in cricket and why the 4 and 5 day games were weekly social celebrations that the county could attend and enjoy.
It then has a statistical overview of each 1st class county (sans Durham) from their 1st match through the1980 season. Its great to see the stats and the top players before the age of the flat wicket and 2 divisions.
The Wisden Book of County Cricket is one of the best sport books. This type of sport journalism has seemed to disappear. The importance is on the game itself instead of the players who play or the owners, tv rights, and the drama they cause. A read like this reminds us that the love of sport is what drives the passion's not the weekly wage, who's sleeping with who, or which of the 13 kits are they wearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hockey analysis is finally maturing., October 18, 2011
Having read the last 10 or so baseball prospectus and a few football versions, I've longed for a hockey annual that studied hockey in an elegant mathmatical way. Us who search for the sporting 'ultimate answer' via mathmatical analysis have a difficult time finding annuals that quench that thirst. This is my 1st hockey prospectus (I didn't buy the 1st edition because I didn't know it was available) and its great. Identifies the evolution of player performance through mathmatical description in a direct, concise, and easy to understand style. My only wish is that it included Corsi and Zone Start% in the player stats.
The prospectus team once again created an innovative approach this time for hockey. Now can we get an European soccer prospectus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gives this rugby junkie a much needed fix., September 29, 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Considering the World Cup of rugby is not televised in the US, being a domestic league fan is very difficult here. Discovering Pro Rugby Manager 2 has provided a fun and interesting alternative.
The number of domestic competitions is great including 2nd division Scotland and Wales and top Canadian and Japanese. Of course all the big boys are included from the premiership, South Africa's 2 Curried cups and New Zealands top division. I enjoy the the 2 French competitions.
Anyone familiar with the football manager series understands the game play. Manage a team, sign players, then watch the game. The option of 2d or 3d viewing is great. Also you DO NOT need a constant internet connection to play.
Pro Rugby Manager has kept me up many nights since its purchase. I wish they would update the rosters or even release a new version but this version does the job. I highly recommend this game.
